Dianne Feinstein Says A ‘Bad Cold’ May Have ‘Slowed Down’ Her Mental Faculties

Daily Caller;

Democratic California Sen. Dianne Feinstein suggested a “bad cold” may have impaired her mental faculties and caused her to release Fusion GPS founder Glenn Simpson’s testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee without telling committee chairman Chuck Grassley.

Feinstein published Simpson’s testimony on Tuesday, catching Republicans by surprise. Simpson’s testimony, taken during August of last year, covered his firm’s role in producing the infamous anti-Trump dossier for the Clinton campaign and Democratic National Committee.

Feinstein, 84, expressed regret on Wednesday for keeping Sen. Grassley in the dark, and suggested it was because of a “bad cold.”  more here

  1. It appears many democrats release confidential investigation information when they get a cold or not.
    She earlier stated she was pressured to release the information, I suspect Schumer, Durbin and Hoyer did the pressuring.

    How is this any different from other damaging leaks for political purposes?

  2. Bruce Ohr, Bill Priestap, Strozk and his mistress Page are set to testify before congress in the next couple of weeks. Releasing this transcript lets them all coordinate their stories.

    Right, Dianne?

  3. “If I say a thing I know is not perfect truth, it is a flat perjury.”

    What a fukkin liar. The report couldn’t have been released without the involvement of various aides and hangers-on; preparation, typing, copying, printing, &c.

    Grassley should restrict her access to any and all materials coming before the Committee. To do less is complicity.

    izlamo delenda est …

  4. Thanks Cato for saying what I was going to say that the article just skimmed over! She first said she was PRESSURED to release it. That is important (to me). Who pressured her, is she being blackmailed? Then, it was a bad cold and they worry about PDT’s mental status??
    Of course she released the transcripts to set up the others who are going to testify and it is all ignored. If you yell “you lie” at the democrat President, then you are in trouble but releasing classified documents–pfffttt.

  5. It’s long past time this fossil went home. Releasing this confidential information may impact the prosecution of Fusion execs and others. The release of Simpson’s testimony is at least a dereliction of duty and at worst treason.
    Feinstein should immediately be removed from the senate judiciary committee and replaced with someone more judicious.

  6. Too bad she does not have one of those colds that leaders of the Soviet Union had when they were trying to delay announcing their death.

    I am rooting for a flesh-eating super bug infection on her sorry lying ass.

  7. She’s plainly lying and I wish the chairman of that committee or the DOJ would determine publically whether she broke the law by leaking that document. She clearly confessed that it was her then toddles out this lame excuse. If she did break the law then the DOJ has the duty to take action and charge her. The committee chair has a responsibility to remove her from the group and her security clearance must be removed pending the outcome of the trial. If nothing is done then it becomes clear that Democrats only have to worry about getting caught naked with a child or standing over a dead dody with a smoking gun and even that wouldn’t count if the victim was a conservative. Doing nothing will serve to embolden other Democrats to break the law knowing that for them, there are no rules.

    > the DOJ has the duty to take action and charge her

    Law enforcement is under no legal obligation to enforce the law.

    > there are no rules

    See! I knew you could do it!

  9. That wasn’t an accidental leak.
    She took a chainsaw, ripped the
    bottom out of the boat; then blamed it on a cold virus? WHY is she still
    on the committee? What’s her punishment? WHAT A PILE OF CRAP!

  10. When she was mayor of San Fran, she released information in a televised press conference that was previously known only to investigators about the Night Stalker. Ramirez now knew he had left his shoe prints (and they were rare, especially in his size) and he got rid of them. It slowed down his capture significantly. This is her M.O.
