Lock her up? Now it's Dianne Feinstein instead of Clinton
Chants of "Lock her up!" rang once again throughout an Iowa arena as President Trump rallied supporters last 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."
In a statement, Feinstein called Trump's remarks "ridiculous and an embarrassment."
