Dozens of women come out in support of Brett Kavanaugh after a Democrat senator tries to stir accusations of misconduct from more than three decades ago.

Dianne Feinstein said Friday, she received a letter back in July, from a woman claiming to be a victim of sexual misconduct by Kavanaugh back in high school.

The Supreme Court nominee sounded off, saying he “categorically and unequivocally” denies the allegation.

65 women who knew him at that time, penned a letter to Congress refuting the woman’s claim, saying he treated women with respect.

Democrats in the upper chamber are upset with Feinstein for sitting on the letter for months, and refusing to brief the Judiciary Committee on the matter.

Meantime, next week’s vote is expected to go on as scheduled Thursday.
