She may be deceiving many about her chosen timing to release the accusation against Brett Kavanaugh by Christine Blasey Ford, but Senator Dianne Feinstein is at least being honest about the story itself. Nobody but Ford can know if her story is true, therefore those who are claiming it absolutely must be true are being dishonest.
Here’s the context of the statement:

Ford seems sincere, especially when one considers what she’s putting herself and her family through. However, is she sincere because she’s telling the truth or sincere because she truly wants to stop Kavanaugh from being confirmed. Unfortunately, it’s nearly impossible to distinguish between the two realities 36 years after the fact.
Update: Feinstein clarified her statement after backlash from both sides.
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
