Some talking heads in the media would opine that no one, simply no one, has a way of putting things into their proper perspective quite the way that White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders does. As the Hill has just confirmed, Sanders had a few facts regarding Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) that turned more than a few heads when written, as she often does.
Regarding Feinstein’s “statements about sexual misconduct allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh,” the press secretary tweeted, “Now clear why top Democrat on Senate Judiciary Committee did nothing with [sic] allegation for months or even ask Judge Kavanaugh about it. Senator Feinstein just said ‘I can’t say everything’s truthful.”
Backtracking from the California liberal made a few things very clear to Sanders.
With all of the bickering taking place in D.C., it could be suggested by some that the media is making the accusations against Kavanaugh appear as if they are carved in stone facts, but they are not. Feinstein had to admit that she could say that what Christine Blasey Ford is peddling is “true.”
On CNN, Feinstein tried to tapdance around her statements and said, “Based on what I know at this stage, she [Ford] is credible.” She then posted a tweet that called the accuser ” “sincere” and “believable.”
That is quite a stance to have since the justice is accused of pinning Ford to a bed and trying to take her clothes off during a party that took place in the 1980’s. Kavanaugh has said that the whole ordeal is fabricated and that it never happened.
While getting to the bottom of this would certainly help, the fact is that Feinstein waited until right before the confirmation to make these concerns known. This, even though she known of these suspicions since July.
The G.O.P. has “scheduled a hearing for Ford’s allegations next Monday “and they have delayed the confirmation of the judge, which he had expected to win.
Ford herself may not even testify, according to her legal team, and this is a fact that could cause some people to question her honesty on the topic.
Meanwhile, a man who seems quite qualified to be a Supreme Court justice is having his name put in the mud and stepped on.
If it turns out that he is innocent, it will be interesting to some people to see where a lot of the those who are today pointing fingers at Kavanaugh are going to flee to when retraction time rolls around.
Now clear why top Democrat on Senate Judiciary Committee did nothing with allegation for months or even ask Judge Kavanaugh about it: Senator Feinstein just said “I can’t say everything’s truthful.”

During every step of this process, I’ve found every single piece of information from Dr. Christine Blasey Ford eminently credible, sincere and believable. She knew this would have a huge effect on her life and she was incredibly brave to come forward.
