Sen. Dianne Feinstein has heard a lot today about how an investigation into Christine Blasey Ford’s accusations could have started a lot earlier if she hadn’t sat on the letter for six weeks, and at last, Sen. John Cornyn stepped up and asked Feinstein just how the letter got out to the media.

What? Feinstein is passing the buck to Ford’s friends? They’re the ones who tipped off the media?

After checking with a staffer behind her … priceless.

Update:

Feinstein’s office has released a statement on her handling of the letter to silence “the constant drumbeat by Republicans” about her sitting on the letter. Oh, and she also confirmed that she helped Ford obtain a lawyer.
