Cotton: Chuck Schumer Behind Blasey Ford Letter Leak

A Republican Senator from Arkansas is pointing fingers at a high level Democrat for the leak of Christine Blasey Ford’s confidential letter to Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), which ended up in the hands of the press.

“Hugh, I believe the Schumer political operation was behind this from the very beginning,” said Sen.
