Sneaky Dianne Feinstein blames “bad cold” for leak of Fusion GPS dossier testimony
Democratic Senator Dianne Feinstein is blaming a “bad cold” for her leaking of the Fusion GPS transcripts.
The California Senator who is the top Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee released the transcript earlier this week without consulting with Chairman Chuck Grassley and pissed him off.
She told an NBC News reporter that she regrets not speaking to Grassley beforehand, citing her cold as a possible factor.
“The one regret I have is that I should have spoken with Senator Grassley before. And I don’t make an excuse but I’ve had a bad cold and maybe that slowed down my mental facilities a little bit,” she said, according to a tweet from a fellow NBC producer.
Maybe it wasn’t a cold but senility or the fact that she has been in the Senate too long and needs to be part of the swamp draining. Earlier this year I did a post on the Congress drugstore delivering Alzheimer drugs to Congress on a regular basis. Perhaps Senator Feinstein and Nancy Pelosi seem to be candidates. John McCain seems to have a problem with his memory also. Every time the dossier comes up in discussion he seems to disappear lately.
She did not seem to express regret in releasing the transcript. Just that she got caught and it was pointed out. Typical Democrat hypocrite politician. Senator Feinstein has been in the US Senate for 26 years. The woman is 84 years old it’s a wonder she can stay awake for committee meetings. She is a prime example of the need for Congressional term limits.
The fact that Sneaky Dianne Feinstein, who has on numerous occasions stated that collusion between Trump/Russia has not been found, would release testimony in such an underhanded and possibly illegal way, totally without authorization, is a disgrace. Must have tough Primary!

President Trump was not happy about the leak from Senator Feinstein either and gave her a new nickname “Sneaky Dianne Feinstein.”
“The fact that Sneaky Dianne Feinstein, who has on numerous occasions stated that collusion between Trump/Russia has not been found, would release testimony in such an underhanded and possibly illegal way, totally without authorization, is a disgrace. Must have tough Primary!” Trump tweeted.
A spokesman for Grassley called it “totally confounding that Senator Feinstein would unilaterally release a transcript of a witness interview in the middle of an ongoing investigation.”
