DIANNE'S CURVEBALL: Sen. Feinstein Sends 'SECRET LETTER' to FBI About Kavanaugh's Confirmation

"I have received information from an individual concerning the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court", Sen.

Kavanaugh wrote that he assumed the man who approached him, introduced himself, "and touched my arm" during a break at the Senate Judiciary Committee proceedings had been one of the many protesters in the hearing room.

Patrick Leahy, D-Vt., right, during a Senate Judiciary Committee markup meeting on Capitol Hill, Thursday, Sept. 13, 2018, in Washington.

The existence of the document was first reported by online news site The Intercept. Anna Eshoo (D-Calif.), who in turn handed it over to Feinstein.

Eshoo's office declined to comment on the letter to HuffPost, saying that it came from a constituent and is therefore considered casework and won't be made public.

ABC News has not independently confirmed the Intercept's reporting and has not been given any details about the content of the letter.

Booker repeatedly announced he was breaking the rules during Kavanaugh's hearings last week, causing many to claim the Democrat senator was grandstanding to gain favor in his party ahead of the 2020 elections. Katz declined to comment or confirm whether she was representing the woman. Kavanaugh, when given a chance to say something to Guttenberg during questioning at the hearing, told senators that he understands "the real-world effects of our decisions" and he has "not lived in a bubble".

In a statement, White House spokesperson Kerri Kupec said Kavanaugh has been "thoroughly and repeatedly vetted" by the Federal Bureau of Investigation for government positions over the past 25 years and accused Democrats of trying to delay the nomination.

"I have received information from an individual concerning the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court", Feinstein said in a statement Thursday.

Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, left, accompanied by Sen.

"All I know is what I read, some two or three sentences that was in some report overnight".

The vote occurred as Democrats complained about the confirmation process and pressed for more documents from President Trump's nominee.

The 28 new "committee confidential" documents released by Booker, meanwhile, are from Kavanaugh's time in the White House counsel's office during the George W. Bush administration and deal with his work on judicial nominations. "At The National Law Journal (subscription or registration required), Marcia Coyle and Tony Mauro highlight some of Kavanaugh's answers to more than a thousand written questions posed by senators ... in the wake of [Kavanaugh's] confirmation hearing last week".

"Not until the eve of his confirmation has Senator Feinstein or anyone raised the spectre of new "information" about him". Feinstein says it makes her wonder "what in Judge Kavanaugh's records are Republicans hiding?" But on Thursday, the White House decried news of the letter as an attempt to delay the confirmation.
