GOP Sen. Lee on Being Doxed: ‘It’s Terrible’ — ‘Leaves Us Feeling Very Unsafe’

Wednesday, Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) discussed being doxed, allegedly by a former Democratic staffer following Dr. Christine Blasey Ford’s testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee regarding sexual misconduct allegations against now-Supreme Court Associate Justice Brett Kavanaugh.

Hugh Hewitt, host of “The Hugh Hewitt Show” asked Lee if he was “physically threatened” in the process of confirming Kavanaugh.

“I was doxed, meaning our personal information was released — our personal address where I’m here in Washington, where I live in Utah, as well as my personal cell phone number,” Lee responded. “It’s terrible. It leaves us feeling very unsafe. My wife has had to be followed to the park by the local police. It’s not a pleasant thing. This is completely unnecessary, I would add. It’s completely unnecessary to descend to a point in our society where with the confirmation of a Supreme Court justice, someone has to feel physically threatened by the release of such information.”
