Senator Dianne Feinstein blasted the CIA for what she claimed may have violated the Constitution and the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act.
Feinstein also said “Based on what Director [John] Brennan has informed us, I have grave concerns that the CIA search may well have violated the separation of powers principles embodied in the United States Constitution, including the Speech and Debate clause,” she said. “It may have undermined the constitutional framework essential to effective congressional oversight of intelligence activities or any other government function.”
I find this outrage on Feinstein’s part quite funny and for more than a couple of reasons. She has absolutely no problem what so ever with the NSA spying on you and me. But now that she’s supposedly being spied on, she all of a sudden sites the Constitution? Also, the esteemed senator has on many occasions, assaulted the second amendment of the constitution to curtail the rights of people like you and me, from being able to own what she claims are “assault rifles with high capacity magazines”, even though Senator Feinstein herself carries a pistol (and has for years) for personal protection. It’s simply another case of “Do as I say and not as I do.” So all of a sudden Feinstein cares about the Constitution? Give me a break!
This is another example of the elitist attitude of our politicians, who think that the rules that govern the rest of us poor plebeians, do not and should not apply to them.
Feinstein also confirmed that the matter has been referred to the Justice Department by the CIA inspector general. Excuse me, but is that the same Justice Department that has yet to answer for their role in Fast and Furious? The same Department of Justice that has turned a blind eye to the IRS targeting conservatives? Gee, I wonder, since it’s a democrat making allegations, will something actually get done by the DoJ?
Pardon me madam Senator, but what makes you any different than the rest of us?
On a personal note senator – how’s that big real estate deal that you and your hubby are involved in going? You know the one I’m talking about, don’t you?
Let me refresh your memory; Just a few years after the firm now known as CBRE Group collected more than $108 million from a contract to help the FDIC sell foreclosed properties, the company owned in part by Blum (the senator’s husband) is selling off old post offices under an exclusive contract with the financially struggling U.S. Postal Service, records show. Officials for the Postal Service, Feinstein’s office and Blum’s company say the contract signed in 2011 with CBRE involved no political influence and was awarded to CBRE after a competitive process that involved six other firms. Ironically, Feinstein tried unsuccessfully to block the sale of the post offices before her husband’s firm won the contract. And the Postal Service says the decision to sell the buildings, some of them designated as historic sites or located in prime downtown locations, was purely financial…..sure it was (wink-wink).
