Democrat Sen. Diane Feinstein sent a letter to the feds that reportedly included allegations of sexual misconduct between Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh and a woman when they were both in high school.
Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-IA) told reporters that he is aware of the situation, but declined to comment until he saw the letter itself. "Despite the endless complaints from critics, the Committee has received more material regarding Judge Kavanaugh's nomination than any nominee in history - by a wide margin", said White House Spokesman Raj Shah. "There's no plan to change the committee's consideration of Judge Kavanaugh's nomination", he said. Although Kavanaugh testified in 2004 he was "not involved in handling his nomination", his emails from the White House counsel's office show he received invitations for meetings and conference calls to discuss confirmation strategies for Pryor. That prompted an uproar from Democrats, who read out loud the committee rule requiring that committee debate on a nomination can not be cut off without a majority vote that includes at least one member of the minority party.

"Feinstein or anyone raised the specter of new "information" about Kavanaugh. Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., has said he will set up a final confirmation vote before the end of the month, and Kavanaugh appears to have enough support.
