By The Daily Caller. Republican Sen. Tom Cotton of Arkansas accused Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer Tuesday of being involved in the operation to leak Christine Blasey Ford’s letter to the public.
“I believe the Schumer political operation was behind this from the very beginning,” Cotton told conservative commentator Hugh Hewitt during his radio show.
Ford wrote Democratic lawmakers a letter in July accusing Justice Brett Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct more than 35 years ago. During the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing in September, Ford said she did not authorize the letters release, despite it being made public.
“We learned last week that a woman named Monica McLean was Ms. Ford’s roommate and she was one of the so-called ‘beach friends’ that encouraged Ms. Ford to go to [Sen.] Dianne Feinstein and the partisan Democrats on the judiciary committee,” Cotton continued. “It just so happens that Monica McLean worked for Preet Bharara, the former U.S. attorney in Manhattan, now a virulent anti-Trump critic on television and former counsel to Chuck Schumer.” (Read more from “Senator Reveals Who He Believes Leaked Ford Letter” HERE)
Sen. Tom Cotton Pushes Conspiracy Theory Involving Blasey Ford, Preet Bharara and Chuck Schumer
By The Hill Reporter. . .Last night, Trump apologized to Brett Kavanuagh on behalf of the nation for the “Democrat’s hoax.” Today, Arkansas Senator Tom Cotton took it a step further by creating a conspiracy theory involving Dr. Blasey Ford, Chuck Schumer and Dianne Feinstein.
Cotton made his claims this morning on Hugh Hewitt’s radio show. He claimed, “I believe the Schumer political operation was behind this from the very beginning.”
The senator explained that there was a connection between Ford’s friend Monica McLean and Preet Bharara.
Bharara was a celebrated US Attorney who was famous for taking on financial corruption in New York City. He was fired by the president shortly after Donald Trump took office.
Cotton claimed that McLean once worked for Bharara and then worked for Schumer so there was a line connecting the three of them. (Read more from “Sen. Tom Cotton Pushes Conspiracy Theory Involving Blasey Ford, Preet Bharara and Chuck Schumer” HERE)
