SNEAKY DIANE FEINSTEIN RELEASED ILLEGALLY GLENN SIMPSON TESTIMONY TRANSCRIPT AT THE REQUEST OF FUSION GPS’s LAWYERS
First, Democrat Sneaky Diane Feinstein claimed she illegally released Fusion GPS founder Glenn Simpson’s secret committee testimony because someone pressured her to do so. When asked who, she retracted her story and blamed her poor decision on her cold.
Now, the Daily Caller has confirmed that Dianne Feinstein released the transcript at the request of Fusion GPS’s lawyers.
President Trump called the unauthorized move of Sneaky Dianne Feinstein ”very disrespectful to committee members and possibly illegal’:
Democrat Dianne Feinstein should never have released secret committee testimony to the public without authorization. Very disrespectful to committee members and possibly illegal. She blamed her poor decision on the fact she had a cold – a first!
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!
California Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein told The Daily Caller that Fusion GPS lawyers asked her to release company co-founder Glenn Simpson’s testimony transcript.
[…]“We were written to by the lawyers of the company asking that it be released, and the reason, of course, is because it has been used by rumor and innuendo and falsity so much that the time came for people to see exactly what was said,” Feinstein said.
WHO? DIANE FEINSTEIN: ‘SOMEONE PRESSURED ME TO RELEASE FUSION GPS TRANSCRIPT’ – LATER CLAIMED SHE ‘MISSPOKE’
Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) said she released the Fusion GPS transcripts on Tuesday because she was “pressured” to do so. When asked who pressured her, she claimed she ‘misspoke’.
CNN Congressional Correspondent Manu Raju tweeted the report:
“FEINSTEIN says she’s sorry to Grassley for not giving him a headsup about the release of the Fusion GPS transcript. ‘I meant to tell him, and I didn’t have a chance to tell him, and that concerns me,’ she told us. ‘I just got pressured, and I didn’t do it.'”
UPDATE: Feinstein later claimed she was not pressured but that she ‘misspoke’. Huh?
Asked who pressured her, Feinstein says: “I wasn’t pressured” without reconciling her two statements. Her office later said she misspoke and wasn’t pressured to release transcript.
Diane Feinstein: Obstruction Of Justice Case Being Built Against Trump Over James Comey Firing…whatever!
( Daily Caller ) California Sen. Dianne Feinstein, the top Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee, said Sunday that she believes an obstruction of justice case is being built against President Trump over the firing of James Comey as FBI director.
“I see it most importantly in what happened with the firing of Director Comey, and it is my belief that that is directly because he did not agree to lift the cloud of the Russia investigation. That’s obstruction of justice,” Feinstein said in an interview on NBC’s “Meet the Press.”
Feinstein said that both Special Counsel Robert Mueller and the Senate Judiciary Committee are investigating the circumstances around Trump’s May 9 firing of Comey.
“The Judiciary Committee has an investigation going as well, and it involves obstruction of justice. I think what we’re beginning to see is the putting together of a case of obstruction of justice,” said Feinstein.
Diane Feinstein: ” Have the Judiciary Committee take a look whether former Attorney General Loretta Lynch pressured former FBI Director James Comey to cover for Hillary Clinton‘s presidential campaign.”
One of James Comey’s biggest expose during his Senate testimony was the fact that Obama’s Attorney General, Loretta Lynch , directed him to call the FBI’s investigation into Hillary Clinton’s email server not an investigation but as a “matter.”
The Hill reports:
Sen. Diane Feinstein (D-Calif.) said Sunday that Congress should investigate whether former Attorney General Loretta Lynch pressured former FBI Director James Comey to cover for Hillary Clinton‘s presidential campaign.
“I think we need to know more about that,” Feinstein told host Brianna Keilar on CNN’s “State of the Union.”
“And there’s only way to know about it, and that’s to have the Judiciary Committee take a look at that,” Feinstein, the top Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee, said.
Comey testified last Thursday that he felt “queasy” after Lynch asked him to characterize his probe into Clinton’s emails as a “matter,” rather than an investigation. He told the Senate Intelligence Committee that such a request would match the wording of Clinton’s campaign.
Feinstein, who is a member of the Senate Intelligence panel, said she would’ve also felt queasy.
“I would have a queasy feeling, too, though, to be candid with you,” the longtime Senate Democrat said.
She added that an investigation separate from the ongoing probe into Russian interference in the election is needed.
