Feinstein Admits She Was Mentally Unstable When Releasing Fusion GPS Transcript

Amid all the 25th Amendment malarkey being thrown at the president, it is ironic that Democratic California Sen. Dianne Feinstein admitted a "bad cold" may have impaired her mental faculties and caused her to release Fusion GPS founder Glenn Simpson’s testimony.


This is the second excuse from Feinstein for her actions that so enraged Sen. Grassley. Earlier, as we detailed here, she admitted (then retracted) being "pressured" to release the transcripts.

And now, as The Daily Caller's Peter Hasson notes, Feinstein, 84, expressed regret on Wednesday for keeping Sen. Grassley in the dark, and suggested it was because of a “bad cold.”

“The one regret I have is that I should have spoke with Senator Grassley before,” she told NBC News.

“And I don’t make an excuse but I’ve had a bad cold and maybe that slowed down my mental facilities [sic] a little bit.

Grassley said Tuesday that Feinstein’s decision to abruptly publish the documents was “confounding” and said he expected the documents to be released “when we both agreed to release it.”

This is just to cover her slip up at telling people she was "pressured". I am almost positive she was.  As a Dem she has been pretty level headed in the past concerning National Security Matters, this release is way out of character for even her.  Something is up here, I am telling you.

You know, if I had published confidential information when I was in the military, then explained it as being under pressure first, then tried to explain it away by saying I was under the influence of a cold, my access to such info would have been immediately terminated while they figured out the best way to prosecute me.  I guess these concepts don't apply to negligent senior government officials.

my dear senator sent this out: 

Feinstein Statement on Flynn Guilty Plea

Dec 01 2017

Washington—Senate Judiciary Committee Ranking Member Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) released the following statement on the guilty plea by former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn:

“Michael Flynn’s guilty plea is about more than just lying to the FBI. What he lied about and when he did it are of even greater significance.

“This shows a Trump associate negotiating with the Russians against U.S. policy and interests before Donald Trump took office and after it was announced that Russia had interfered in our election. That’s a stunning revelation and could be a violation of the Logan Act, which forbids unauthorized U.S. citizens from negotiating with a foreign power.

“It’s critical that we determine whether Flynn spoke with the Russians on his own initiative and who knew and approved of his actions. This is just one more proof point that these investigations must be allowed to continue without interference.”


I replied with this, but so far no response:

you are an aipac troll…no surprise that you didn't include WHAT flynn was lying about…trying to get russia to delay the u.n. vote condemning israel's illegal settlement activities…why wouldn't you have included THAT in your anti-russian propaganda?

This old war horse apparatchik knows exactly what she is doing.  This is war.  As old as she is and if they need her too, she will sacrifice her position to make a strategic move.  They are getting exposed everywhere and there games are up, just a matter of when.  Keep popcorn ready.  This is an amazing time.  After treating the world as their personal litter box they are finally afraid.  They have exhausted the US empire in pursuit of their ambitions, which is actually a good thing since nothing else could stop them.  They are making desperate maneuvers everywhere to conceal and deflect and none of it is working.  Trump keeps desperately kissing Zionist asses and they just keep hammering him too.  Hopefully he turns on them eventually, even if it's just in speech.  He could blow this wide open just by having a narcissist tantrum.  Somebody is going to eventually anyway.

...I hope she runs...

Sorry, we here in CA were sooo thankful when she announced last fall she would be seeking a 5th term next cycle which will put her at 90 years of age as a stellar representative for our illustrious state.

By then we'll need to keep her in a sterile bubble so she can keep her faculties as no telling what would happen if she were to catch a cold then.

"I had a cold"????

What Criminal at Large Feinstein committed was Treason.  Period.  Aiding & abetting known Criminal elements within the Deep State Intelligence Community all based on a Psychological Intel Operation Dossier to unseat a sitting via a Soft Coup.

When it comes to impeaching the President, the offense doesn't have to be illegal to be impeachable. Remember, impeachment is a political event, not a legal event...though the people doing the impeaching generally like to have some legal basis to stand upon.

And, that is the Pure Evil War Criminal Treasonous Seditious Deep State / CIA’s / Mossad’s Ultimate goal. They’re going “all in.”

It will be the most Epic, Gas Lighting PsyOp Event in recent history. The unseating, impeachment of a sitting President based on a entire bogus charge based on an entire Criminal Deep Strate Intelligence Parallel Construction Psychological Operation.

Pushed by their Presstitute appendages well into 2018 & beyond.

Remember, where dealing with Psychopaths here. And, under complete Hubirs, Narcissism, Lack of Remorse, Impulsity & lack of goals will be their demise.

As with all Pure Evil War Criminal Treasonous Seditious Psychopaths who lack self control, the moral will & fortitude to stop them must come from sane outside individuals by FORCE if necessary.

Many have seen what's real for a long time now.  Frank Zappa said "Government is the entertainment division of the military industrial complex."  Feinstein is a poster child for that.  But this is one of my favorite Zappa quotes:

"The illusion of freedom will continue as long as it's profitable to continue the illusion.  At the point when the illusion becomes too expensive to maintain, they will just take down the scenery, they will pull back the curtains, they will move the tables and chairs out of the way, and you will see the brick wall at the back of the theater."
