NYT’s Haberman: The Way Dianne Feinstein Handled Ford’s Letter Was ‘Not Good’

“There’s many permutations of what could have happened, but what did happen was not good,” she said.

During an appearance on CNN’s “New Day,” New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman noted that while the Senate’s confirmation process has worked well for a long time, the way certain events were handled in the nomination process for Judge Brett Kavanaugh resulted in mistrust on both the Republican and Democrat sides of the Senate Judiciary Committee.

Haberman added that the #MeToo movement has further complicated the issues involving the accusations made about Kavanaugh by Dr. Christine Blasey Ford.

“The manner in which this anonymous complaint by Blasey Ford was dealt with initially by Senator Dianne Feinstein’s office and her office is part of what set this all in motion,” Haberman said.

CNN’s ‎Alisyn Camerota said she agreed with Haberman’s assessment that Feinstein’s office dropped the ball, but asked Haberman how it should have been handled. “When somebody gets a confidential, private letter that’s really sensitive, what are they supposed to do with it?”

“I think you try to investigate it. I don’t think you kind of move past it and wait until it gets leaked to somebody,” Haberman responded. “There’s many permutations of what could have happened, but what did happen was not good.”
