Journalists drag Sen. Susan Collins for saying she believed Dr. Ford believed what she testified to

After Sen. Dianne Feinstein dropped the letter she’d been sitting on for six weeks, Brett Kavanaugh was said to have been “credibly accused.” His accuser would testify, but she set many conditions. She wanted Kavanaugh to go first. She didn’t want independent counsel. She was afraid to fly. Most of us doubted she would even show, but she did, and she told “her truth,” as Sen. Cory Booker put it.

The FBI did the supplemental background check the Democrats and Christine Blasey Ford’s lawyers had insisted on. After viewing the FBI report, Democrats looked like their dog had just died.

So we’re gonna say it: after all we’ve seen and heard, we think it’s kind to say you believe Dr. Ford in any capacity. Was she sexually assaulted in high school? She says she was, but failed to prove that or that it was Brett Kavanaugh who assaulted her.

So we have no problem with Sen. Susan Collins saying she believes Dr. Ford believed what she was saying under oath. It’s more compassionate than we could muster. But some journalists are having a problem with her logic.

Sam Stein of the Daily Beast says it just doesn’t add up.

Like we said, credit to Collins for allowing Ford some dignity after having provided shifting narratives, no corroborating evidence, and withholding evidence: her therapist’s notes.

Of course, CNBC’s John Harwood would make an issue of it too.

Or maybe she’s just saying exactly what she’s saying: Dr. Ford believed what she was saying, even if it wasn’t true.

That theory would be solid if Collins were proved wrong, but it looks like Ford is out of the game and not playing anymore, so no more testimony from her.

And yes, Collins Derangement Syndrome is real:
