Dianne Feinstein on Kavanaugh Allegation: ‘I Can’t Say Everything is Truthful’


Senator Dianne Feinstein, who held from public view the letter from Christine Blasey Ford detailing an accusation against Donald Trump‘s SCOTUS nominee Brett Kavanaugh, told reporters today she cannot say “everything’s truthful.”

Speaking to Fox News reporters, Feinstein said: “No one called her, or called her lawyer. My understanding is she got emails. I have no say. I’m the lead Democrat so this is all up to the Republican side.”

“I can’t say everything’s truthful,” Feinstein added. “I don’t know.”

The statement, given to Fox News and first reported on Twitter by reporter Chad Pergram, included her observation that the alleged incident has had a long-term, “profound” consequence for Ford.

Fox News producer Patrick Ward also tweeted the statement from Senator Feinstein.

CBS’s Alan He tweeted a “clarification” from Sen. Feinstein not long after the clip aired:
