Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) spoke about Monday's highly anticipated hearing with Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh and Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, the woman who claims Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her in high school, with FOX News today. Sen. Feinstein said while she believes Christine Blasey Ford she can't say "everything is truthful."
"It's really too bad that no one called her or called her lawyer," the Senator said Tuesday. "My understanding is she got e-mails. This is a woman, who I really believe, has been profoundly impacted by this. Now, I can't say everything is truthful. I don't know."
Feinstein later tweeted, "We should honor Dr. Blasey Ford’s wishes and delay this hearing. A proper investigation must be completed, witnesses interviewed, evidence reviewed and all sides spoken to. Only then should the chairman set a hearing date."
The decision to come forward or not come forward has always been Christine Blasey Ford’s, and that includes her participation in a hearing.— Sen Dianne Feinstein (@SenFeinstein) September 19, 2018
I agree with her 100 percent that the rushed process to hold a hearing on Monday has been unfair and is reminiscent of the treatment of Anita Hill. I also agree that we need the facts before senators—not staff or lawyers—speak to witnesses.— Sen Dianne Feinstein (@SenFeinstein) September 19, 2018
