Did pro-abortion Hawaii Senator Mazie Hirono leak the letter Christine Ford wrote making unproven accusations against Brett Kavanaugh? Hirono is a prominent abortion supporter who has made it nos secret that she opposes Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavaaugh, in part because he has ruled on the pro-life side on multiple occasions.
While pro-abortion Senator Diane Feinstein is incurring much of the wrath from Kavanaugh supporters for disrespecting Christine Ford and using her claims of sexual assault as an 11th-hour political weapon agaisnt Kavanaugh, supporters of his nomination have wondered who leaked the contents of the letter to the press — resulting in sad and disgusting attacks on both Ford and Kavanaugh.
Hirono refused to answer when asked about this.
Ford testified that only four camps had her letter which included the allegation: Democrat Congresswoman Anna Eshoo and her office, Democrat Senator Diane Feinstein and her office, Ford’s lawyers, and Ford herself.
During her testimony, Ford said neither she nor her lawyers shared the contents of the letter with anyone. This leaves only Eshoo and Feinstein—who sits as Ranking Member of the Senate Judiciary Committee. It would make sense for Democrats to release the contents of the letter to the media to generate controversy and call for delays and an FBI investigation (which is underway).
Democrat Senator Mazie Hirono was interviewed by ABC News host George Stephanopoulos and was asked about whether Democrats leaked the letter.
“Are you confident Democrats did not leak the letter?” Stephanopoulos asked very plainly.
Notice her answer:
“All of these things do not focus on what we should be focusing on, which is the credibility of Judge Kavanaugh,” Hirono replied.
The apparent non-answer likely would fuel Republicans’ efforts to seek a deeper inquiry into exactly how news of Ford’s confidential letter ended up in the hands of the media. Senator Lindsey Graham has already called for an investigation.
