Senator Dianne Feinstein has been struggling to keep her opinions straight during the Kavanaugh Ford controversy.
According to the Daily Caller:
Democrats lambasted 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 appeared to doubt the veracity of Ford’s memory.
Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein of California, the Judiciary Committee’s ranking member, spent much of the day criticizing committee Republicans for moving too hastily. But by Tuesday afternoon, she told reporters that the trauma of the event Ford described may have adversely affected her memory.
From colleague Connor Marley. Feinstein on Ford. Says Ford "is a woman that has been, I think, profoundly impacted, on this..I can't say that everything is truthful. I don't know."

Feinstein just now clarifies: “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.” https://t.co/yDldaHTrDe

On Tuesday evening, reports surfaced that Ford is refusing to testify before the Judiciary Committee because she wants “a FBI investigation” to take place first.
Yes, after years of silence she just happens to come out right before our next Supreme Court Justice was going to be confirmed.
She should be investigated for her collusion with the Democratic Party, not for her claims against Judge Kavanaugh.

Everything about the Kavanaugh hit job is shady.
Ford Scrubbed her anti-Trump social media last week.
Students gave her horrible reviews.
Can’t remember the date of the alleged assault.
She’s ignoring emails from the Senate.
She hired a huge left-wing donor as a lawyer.

The vote that was scheduled to take place on Thursday for Justice Kavanaugh was cancelled and a hearing on Monday was scheduled to allow both Ford and Kavanaugh to speak about what really happened.
Kavanaugh has vehemently denied anything like this has ever taken place. He’s eager to testify about the accusations but it’s Ford who’s refusing to give her account of the story under oath.
The FBI has said it won’t be investigating these accusations.
