Feinstein: Republicans ‘Refused to Talk’ to Avenatti Client

‘I am very disappointed that we’re here today voting on this nomination, especially in light of the testimony that we heard just yesterday’

EXCERPT:

FEINSTEIN: “I am very disappointed that we’re here today voting on this nomination, especially in light of the testimony that we heard just yesterday. My Republican colleagues spent their time at the hearing focused exclusively on policy — on partisanship and process. The majority argued that the sexual assault Dr. Ford experienced was nothing more than a Democratic smear campaign that I am allegedly orchestrating. My staff and I were accused of leaking Dr. Ford’s letter, which we did not. We were accused of leaking Deborah Ramirez’s letter, which we did not. We were said to have refused to participate in the partisan, quote, investigation, end quote. Yet, it is the Republicans who have refused to talk to Debbie Ramirez or Julie Swetnick.
