Sarah Sanders on Kavanaugh probe, Rosenstein future

White House Press Secretary, Sarah Sanders, and FBI will do the investigation hurt the confirmation of President Trump ‘ s Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

Speak only on “Fox News Sunday,” White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders vowed that the ongoing additional FBI background check, the Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh is not a “fishing expedition”, and slammed Democrats for their “shameful” handling of Christine Ford’s sexual assault allegation against him.

Sanders specifically sen mocked Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., for not revealed by Ford, the claim of the colleagues, or Federal authorities for more than six weeks later, she received a letter from her in July. Senate Republicans have said the judiciary Committee process would have allowed, to preserve Feinstein, Ford anonymity, while the education of your claim confidential.

Instead, news to Ford’s assertion that Kavanaugh had attacked at a party in 1982, just a few days before an important Committee vote, Kavanagh nomination came in a leak. The Republicans have been urgent Democrats recommended staged the leak.

“Dianne Feinstein and her staff knew about these allegations, you would have all of this in a private way, to protect Dr. Ford,” said Sanders. “Instead, for the people who claim to champion women, Democrats exploited Dr. Ford, you have exploited this process, and I think it is absolutely scandalous, and I don’t think anyone has hit the nail on the head better than Lindsey Graham listen to while on Thursdays,” said Sanders.


Graham, in a fiery moment at the Thursday hearing, called the proceedings a “Farce” and stressed that he announced never would have, unsubstantiated claims suit Obama tyres nominated Elena Kagan and Sonia Sotomayor-the one he supports. Graham has since said that the deceased Ex-Arizona sen. John McCain, would have been his long-time friend, so angry that he and Graham would look like a “choir boy.”

None of the witnesses, Ford, California professor, has identified as being present at the party where she was allegedly attacked-including Leland Ingham Keyser, her best friend said at the time -, you remember something to the episode. Keyser asked the statement, Ford suggested, on Thursday, her boyfriend, was out with medical issues.

In your testimony earlier in the day, Ford-who had said Feinstein in her July letter that the party included “included me and 4 other” — a change in the balance sheet, and told senators that there were four guys there, in addition to your girlfriend. In an August note Ford wrote in the run-up to a polygraph examination, took her in the direction of their lawyers, they claimed that “there are 4 boys and a few girls were” at the party, again, contradict your letter to Feinstein in July. (Ford has claimed that her therapist inaccurately recorded in 2012 that she had said four boys in the room were, when she was attacked).

“Democrats have taken advantage of Dr. Ford; they have taken advantage of procedure.”

– Sarah Sanders

Ford Thursday you testified in ignorance of the Committee’s Republicans ” – offers that have been communicated to the public, and their lawyers, the flight to California to meet with her, so that the negotiations speed up.

Sanders then went on to the current background-check of Kavanaugh, the White house appointed last week to push the key swing vote, Sen. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz. President Trump has promised that the FBI wide latitude to interview a witness, and said the probe could be a blessing “in disguise.”

“This is not a “fishing expedition”, as the Democrats would like to see it,” said Sanders, host Chris Wallace. “I think you have to go back to the beginning of the first day, as President Trump, judge Brett Kavanaugh, nominated. From that first moment, before one of these allegations was brought up, Democrats said they were not going to him to support, do not vote for him and they would do everything in their power to get him to fight — and as we have seen, in the last couple of months.”


She continued: “they were absolutely shameful in the way that they handled this process, in the way you both Brett Kavanaugh and Dr. Ford have exploited.”

Sen. Cory Booker, D-N. J., called the Fans of Kavanaugh “complicit in evil”, after his nomination was announced, and the Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., promised, against his confirmation with “everything I’ve got.”

Also speak with Fox News on Sunday, Christopher Scalia, the son of late Supreme Court Asssociate Antonin Scalia, back to Sanders ‘picked’ point.

“It was pretty clear from the beginning — groups that already had signs, basically fill-in-the-blank, did you do Mad Libs protest in President Trump nominated Kavanaugh in particular,” Scalia said, referring to throngs of protesters who showed up at the Supreme court on the night of Kavanaugh’s nomination in July, with protest signs, which allows you to write, in nominee name on-the-fly.

There was also some Mad Libs-style press releases as well. In a statement, after Kavanaugh’s nomination, the women said March ominously: “is the trump card, today’s announcement is a death sentence for thousands of women in the United States.”

In an embarrassing blunder, when the women began the March statement: “In response to Donald Trump’s nomination of XX to the Supreme court” — that is, indicating that the group expect to change your already written press release is much.

Sanders also spoke about an upcoming planned meeting between trump and the Deputy General state attorney Rod Rosenstein. Trump had planned to discuss at meeting with Rosenstein in the White house last week to call for the explosive New York Times report, Rosenstein suggested wearing a “wire” against Trump and to remove the appointment of the 25-Change him out of the office in the last year.


A source in the room told Fox News that the Rosenstein with his remark, which led to widespread speculation that he would be fired, appeared to be sarcastic.

“I would not be surprised if other issues come up,” said Sanders. “I’m not going to get to, in front of the President’s conversation with the Deputy attorney General. A date has not yet been set. It could be this week. I could see it pushes back a week, given all the other things that are happening with the Supreme court.”
