Durbin also said he does not believe the committee should vote on Kavanaugh “until all the information is before the committee.”In a statement, White House spokesperson Kerri Kupec said Kavanaugh has been “thoroughly and repeatedly vetted” by the FBI for government positions over the past 25 years and accused Democrats of trying to delay the nomination.“Throughout his confirmation process, Judge Kavanaugh has had 65 meetings with senators — including with Senator Feinstein — sat through over 30 hours of testimony, addressed over 2,000 questions in a public setting and additional questions in a confidential session. Not until the eve of his confirmation has Sen. Feinstein or anyone raised the specter of new ‘information’ about him,” Kupec said.“Sen. (Chuck) Schumer promised to ‘oppose Judge Kavanaugh’s nomination with everything I have,’ and it appears he is delivering with this 11th hour attempt to delay his confirmation,” she added.The letter is the latest turn in Kavanaugh’s contentious nomination. The Judiciary Committee officially scheduled its vote on the nomination for September 20, and Republicans hope to have the full Senate vote on the nomination later this month.

Senators and aides have been chattering about the details of the letter for the last week, including that it was written by a Stanford Law professor and sent to Rep. Anna Eshoo (D-Calif.), who then forwarded it to Feinstein. A spokesperson for Eshoo said that the office would not comment due to a “confidentiality policy regarding constituent issues.”
Apparently this involved an incident or incidents when Kavanaugh and the woman were both in high school. Kavanaugh was born in 1965 and attended Georgetown Prep in Bethesda MD, so it won’t take long for internet sleuths to determine the identity of the accuser.
