Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee on Wednesday accused their Republican counterparts of broadcasting inaccurate information on a committee Twitter account controlled by the majority.
In a letter to committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-IA), Democrats on the committee — minus Sens. Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) and Chris Coons (D-DE) — said that “we are compelled to state for the record that there is information in the second post that is not accurate”:
Nowhere in any of these six FBI reports, which the committee has reviewed on a bipartisan basis, was there ever a whiff of ANY issue – at all – related in any way to inappropriate sexual behavior or alcohol abuse. 2/2

The Republican majority’s Twitter account defended the post with another tweet alleging “baseless innuendo” and “false smears” by Democrats:
Nothing in the tweet is inaccurate or misleading. The committee stands by its statement, which is completely truthful. More baseless innuendo and more false smears from Senate Democrats. https://t.co/x7VUEKnFRV
