Yes, of course they said Feinstein should be “locked up”

Yes, of course they said Feinstein should be "locked up"

A few days ago, I wrote this on Salon:

Sen. Tom Cotton, R-Ark., announced on "Face the Nation" that Christine Blasey Ford's lawyers might face "a D.C. bar investigation into their misconduct," adding that Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., and her staff might also be investigated for leaking Ford's letter to the press. (Feinstein has denied doing this, to be clear.) 
There's no word on whether he seeks to lock her up too.

Last night:

Chants of “Lock her up!” rang once again throughout an Iowa arena as President Donald Trump rallied supporters Tuesday night.

But this time, the staple of Trump’s 2016 campaign against Democrat Hillary Clinton had a new target: California Sen. Dianne Feinstein.

Trump, who was in the state boosting Republican candidates ahead of the Nov. 6 midterm elections, claimed that Feinstein, the ranking Democratic member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, had leaked a letter written by California professor Christine Blasey Ford alleging Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh had sexually assaulted her when they were teenagers.

Feinstein has denied her office was the source of the leak.

“Can you believe that?” Trump said, as his supporters turned the chant once deployed against the former secretary of state on another Democratic woman.

“Did she leak that? 100 percent,” Trump said, adding: “I don’t want to get sued, so 99 percent.”


He will say anything. They will do anything.

Take them seriously.
