Have you gotten the feeling that Christine Blasey Ford’s lawyers don’t necessarily have her best interest in mind? Turns out, there may be a very good reason for that.
Apparently I shouldn't have assumed Ford's attorney was speaking for her this last week.

Maybe none of us should have.
Ford says "various people" – including staff for Feinstein – referred her to DC-area lawyers

Mitchell is now questioning Blasey Ford on how she chose her lawyers. Blasey Ford says various people made recommendations, including Sen. Feinstein's office.

Mitchell asks Blasey Ford if she had help choosing her lawyers. She said she got advice from people she knows in the D.C. area to get referrals, and got suggestions from Feinstein's staff.

Wow, Diane Feinstein’s staff recommended one of Ford’s lawyers
— Gayle Trotter (@gayletrotter) September 27, 2018
Feinstein's office recommended one of her current attorneys. Interesting.

Might be somewhat important, no?
"This isn't politically motivated"
"Yes, Feinstein helped me pick out my lawyers"
Um.. Okay #KavanaughHearings

While this certainly doesn’t indicate any wrongdoing on its face, at the very least, it gives skeptics’ concerns about Ford’s lawyers’ motivations some ammunition.
Important point from Ari Fleischer:
If Feinstein thought it was important enough to advise Ford on what lawyer to hire, and then met with Kavanaugh without raising the issues that required a lawyer, shame on Feinstein. That is called a set up.
