President Donald Trump weighed in on the Brett Kavanaugh hearings Sunday night at a rally in West Virginia, taking specific aim at California Sen. Dianne Feinstein.
The commander in chief praised his Supreme Court pick, calling Kavanaugh “one of accomplished most legal minds of our time a juris with a sterling record of public service.”
Trump went on to call the FBI investigation into sexual assault allegations against Kavanaugh in high school as a "blessing in disguise" because he believes Kavanaugh will be exonerated.
From the moment I received Dr. Ford’s letter my actions have been consistent with her wishes. We kept her letter confidential and did not leak the contents or its existence to anyone.

Trump also accused Democrats of using "low-ball tactics" and directed his comments at Feinstein, whom he accused her of leaking the letter from Dr. Christine Blasey Ford.
Feinstein publicly testified she did not leak the letter from the Palo Alto psychology professor alleging Kavanaugh groped her and put his hand over her mouth at a party in 1982.
Feinstein also testified at last week’s Senate Judiciary Committee meeting that no one from her staff leaked the letter either, at Ford’s request. She also tweeted on Saturday night, reiterating the fact that she didn’t leak the letter.
It was obvious that Trump doesn’t believe Feinstein.
“When you look at releases and leaks and they say, ‘No, I didn’t do it.’ Dianne Feinstein, did you leak?,” Trump said to a chorus of boos from the crowd. “Remember her answer? Uh uh, uh, what? No, no, I didn’t leak. Maybe she didn’t, but that was the worst body language I’ve ever seen.”
