Trump Rally Attendees Chant ‘Lock Her Up’ After He Accuses Feinstein of Leaking Ford Letter


The crowd at a Trump rally in Iowa Tuesday night chanted, “Lock her up!” But this time, it wasn’t about Hillary Clinton.

President Trump at the rally in Council Bluffs accused Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) of leaking the anonymous letter written by Christine Blasey Ford regarding her claim of sexual assault against then-Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

“How about Senator Feinstein? That’s another beauty,” Trump said, as attendees booed.

“Did you leak the documents? Wha? Wha? No, I didn’t,” he said, impersonating the California Democratic senator, who denied leaking Ford's letter when asked by the other members of the Senate Judiciary Committee.

The crowd interrupted Trump by chanting, “Lock her up, lock her up!” to which Trump replied, smiling, “And I think they’re talking about Feinstein, can you believe that?”

“Now was that the worst body language,” he went on. “In other words, did she leak it? A hundred percent. No, I don’t want to get sued — 99 percent. See now I can’t get… Now I can’t get sued.”

Feinstein has repeatedly denied leaking the letter and claims Ford's story "was leaked before the letter became public."

"I honored Dr. Blasey Ford’s request for confidentiality. It was only when reporters were knocking on her door that I referred the letter to the FBI," she said. "At no point did I or anyone on my staff divulge Dr. Blasey Ford’s name to press. She knows that and believes it, for which I’m grateful."
