Democratic Dianne Feinstein came under fire for publicly releasing transcripts of a Senate testimony from Fusion GPS co-founder Glenn Simpson. President Trump attacked her on Twitter.
“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!” tweeted Trump.
Although Trump’s statements might be harsh, the statement put out by Feinstein herself made her look like an even bigger idiot. In an interview with NBC Feinstein claimed that a ‘bad cold’ might have ‘slowed down’ her ‘mental facilities.’
“Feinstein to @MariannaNBCNews RE: releasing the Glenn Simpson transcript: “The one regret I have is that I should have spoke 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,” tweeted NBC’s Frank Thorp V.
Feinstein is 84-years-old and she clearly has no idea what she is doing. However, the released transcripts did reveal some shocking discoveries, including that someone may have been killed as a result of the Russian Dossier being published. ““It’s a voluntary interview, and in addition to that he wants to be very careful to protect his sources. Somebody’s already been killed as a result of the publication of this dossier and no harm should come to anybody related to this honest work,” said Fusion GPS lawyer Joshua Levy according to the transcripts.
