In short, Feinstein's announcement could very well be a bad-faith move, or it could be raising a genuine issue that is worth discussing but ultimately does not disqualify Kavanaugh, or it could relate to something very bad.
Feinstein had sought a subpoena for documents from Kavanaugh's time as Bush's staff secretary. They show Kavanaugh's involvement in judicial nominations, including for some controversial judges.
