Fe­in­stein must leave the Se­nate

The Washington Times Weekly - - Letters To The Editor - KAREN L. BUNE Ar­ling­ton, Virginia

It is time for Sen. Dianne Fe­in­stein to go (“Fe­in­stein says she’d back new Ka­vanaugh probe if Democrats take Se­nate,” Web, Oct. 17). Her pa­thetic dis­play of be­hav­ior prior to and dur­ing the Ka­vanaugh hear­ings was in­dica­tive of her poor judg­ment and in­her­ent bias against Brett Ka­vanaugh. She, along with a num­ber of her Demo­cratic co­horts, is a to­tal em­bar­rass­ment to pub­lic ser­vice. The cards she played with Ka­vanaugh ac­cuser Chris­tine Blasey Ford were em­blem­atic of ma­nip­u­la­tive and strate­gic ma­neu­vers that ul­ti­mately tar­nished the va­lid­ity of gen­uine vic­tims and the bona fide mean­ing and rel­e­vancy of the #MeToo move­ment.

Ms. Fe­in­stein’s at­tempt to de­cry the ap­point­ment of Brett Ka­vanaugh and her ef­forts to de­stroy his rep­u­ta­tion, char­ac­ter and in­tegrity, as well as her vote against him fol­low­ing a sev­enth FBI in­ves­ti­ga­tion — which dis­cov­ered noth­ing more than un­sub­stan­ti­ated and un­cor­rob­o­rated al­le­ga­tions — demon­strates the lengths she would go for self-serv­ing po­lit­i­cal in­ter­ests.

It is ap­par­ent Ms. Fe­in­stein has been in her po­si­tion too long and has be­come more than stale. Ob­vi­ously, she has learned noth­ing from this en­tire abom­inable spec­ta­cle that cap­ti­vated the na­tion for weeks and caused an­guish not only for Brett Ka­vanaugh and his fam­ily but for those in the na­tion who could sen­si­bly see through her em­bar­rass­ing and de­struc­tive po­lit­i­cal cha­rade. In­stead, Ms. Fe­in­stein now claims she would sup­port a new Ka­vanaugh probe if the Democrats take the Se­nate in the af­ter­math of the midterm elec­tions.

The only good thing Ms. Fe­in­stein has re­ally done is re­veal her true essence to vot­ers.
