Dianne Feinstein creates a new firestorm: Ford’s attack on Kavanaugh not ‘truthful’ and says ‘I made the letter’

Democrats attacked the Senate Judiciary Committee’s plans to convene a hearing on Dr. Christine Blasey Ford’s sexual assault allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh Tuesday, while the panel’s top Democrat, Dianne Feinstein’s recent remark created a new firestorm.

Ford, said Feinstein, is “a woman that has been, I think, profoundly impacted, on this,” Fox’s Chad Pergram reports. “I can’t say that everything is truthful. I don’t know,” Feinstein added.

When asked if the accusation will impact how members would vote on Kavanaugh: “I know she did not want to go public. That’s why I made the letter. That was taken out of my control”

Feinstein later tried to clarify: “Look I believe she is credible. What we have wanted is an investigation carried out to look at the facts before there was a hearing. The republican majority is apparently not going to do that. But based on what I know at this stage she is credible.”

“Chairman Grassley today said there would be only two witnesses invited to testify at the Kavanaugh hearing next week on sexual assault allegations,” Feinstein said in a statement. “Compare that to the 22 witnesses at the 1991 Anita Hill hearing and it’s impossible to take this process seriously.”

Kavanaugh took questions from the committee by phone on Monday night. A Senate spokesperson described his answers as “forthright and candid.”

Perhaps the most relevant witness for the committee’s purposes is Mark Judge, a Georgetown Prep student who Ford says was present when Kavanaugh attacked her.
