Senator Tom Cotton of Arkansas tore into Democrats this weekend during an appearance on Face The Nation. He accused them of running a smear campaign against Judge Kavanaugh and said there will be consequences.
The Washington Free Beacon reports:
Cotton: Democrats Disgraced Senate in ‘Orchestrated Smear Campaign’ Against Kavanaugh
Sen. Tom Cotton (R., Ark.) said on Sunday that Democrats have disgraced the United States Senate in their orchestrated smear campaign against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.
“The Democrats have disgraced this process and the United States Senate in the orchestrated smear campaign of character assassination they’ve run against Judge Kavanaugh,” Cotton told “Face the Nation” host John Dickerson…
Cotton signaled out ranking member on the committee Sen. Diane Feinstein (D., Calif.) on how she handled the controversy from the beginning.
There is a well established process of confidentiality on the committee. Dianne Feinstein could have showed that letter to Chuck Grassley and the two of them, as the leaders of that committee could have shared it with the FBI who could have discreetly conducted this inquiry in July and in August without betraying Miss Ford’s confidences. And they have betrayed her.
They pointed her to lawyers who lied to her and did not tell her that the committee staff was willing to go to California to interview her. Now all of that is water under the bridge. Those lawyers are going to face a D.C. bar investigation into their misconduct. Dianne Feinstein and her staff is going to face an investigation for why they leaked that.

Every single Republican should watch that video. Tom Cotton knows how to deal with the media.
