Democratic Sen. Feinstein suggests some leaked info came from the White House

The Democratic leader of the Senate Intelligence Committee said Monday that the White House appears to be responsible for some leaks of classified information.

"I think the White House has to understand that some of this is coming from their ranks," Sen. Dianne Feinstein told a World Affairs Council forum.

The California lawmaker said she was certain that President Barack Obama, who receives a daily intelligence briefing, isn't disclosing secret information, but she was uncertain about others at the White House. "I don't believe for a moment that he goes out and talks about it," she said.

Republicans have criticized the disclosures, arguing that members of the Obama administration were intentionally leaking classified material to enhance the president's reputation in an election year. Attorney General Eric Holder has appointed two attorneys to lead the investigation into who leaked information about U.S. involvement in cyberattacks on Iran and about an al-Qaida plot to place an explosive device aboard a U.S.-bound airliner.

That hasn't satisfied some Republicans who have pressed for a special prosecutor.

 Eric Holder couldn't find his ass with his hands tied behind his back

The charade of open hostility between BO/BS and Putin was OTT - Bad Acting!

Putin may despise him - if he sees him as a traitor, but wouldn't show it with so much at stake - like the Bering Strait.  Like the icebergs to sell to the Sauds (towed by Dassault Inc) and God knows what else...

Oh yes, the wannabe Evil Emperor has undisclosed plans for December, January and February that will end life in America as we know it...

please dear God help this country.....Please give us the strength to fight this devil and to save our children from his powers, amen

Amen, Mona.  We cannot do this without Him!

Washington, DISTRICI of CORRUPTION. Im forced to go to this cesspool several times a year and all I see is a total waste of taxpayer dollars. We have to get rid of ODUMBO and company this fall!

Some or ALL leaked info came/come from the White House?

What information is being leaked particularly?

Start building the Gallows, their beginning to rat each other out. HAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!

Certainly you are dreaming.  I agree with your sentiment but even the conservative talk shows are ignoring the Soros co-opting our upcoming presidential election vote.  What ratting out are you privy to?

No,wishful thinking, although Feinstein has been openly extreme left since the Clinton administration, a little bit of obstruction toward the left to upset their day is always in my plan. The mere idea of this traditional left winger stating that the leak came from her buddies is no accident, Feinstein is calculated and probably has a agenda of her own. Maybe she smells defeat coming and wants to appear neutral. I love disturbing the communist. 

Stall, stall, stall, until after the election, that's all the Democrats, Holder & Obama do.  Like to see Feinstein work with Republicans now to find the source of these leaks, since she believes that the W.H. is the source.

Is Feinstein running for re-election this year?

I suspect Feinstein is blowing smoke to cover her own trail for some later time. Who knows, some may speculate just like they do. I don’t believe Feinstein will work with Republicans only blow smoke to break focus or lead any investigation down the wrong trail. I don’t trust any demorat and few republicans. You were correct Paul; stall, stall, stall.

O`s administration is squirming and Holder investigating himself that makes no since at all, as for the Illegal alien that resides in the White House he has no reputation other than a liar.





Romney Handed Shock
Defeat By Own State’s GOP

Mitt Romney is back in state politics, this time in Utah instead of Massachusetts. However, conservatives in The Beehive State aren’t exactly warming up to the 2012 Republican standard-bearer quite the way many people expected they would.

After finishing second in votes at the state GOP convention, Romney will now face a primary in his run for the Senate seat being vacated by Orrin Hatch, Fox News reported.

At the convention in West Valley City on Saturday, Romney polled just behind state lawmaker Mike Kennedy.

Kennedy captured 50.18 percent of the delegate vote compared to Romney’s 49.12 percent.

That means the two will face off in a primary on June 26 to determine who will represent the GOP this fall.

Romney, the first Mormon to head a major party ticket, is considered an extremely popular figure in Utah and was widely expected to have an easy path to the upper chamber.

In a hypothetical matchup with Democrat Jenny Wilson, at least one poll showed Romney up by 46 percent. That’s, uh, slightly more than the margin of error.

However, among party loyalists, Romney isn’t exactly viewed with unalloyed fondness.

The 2012 presidential nominee was always known for being decidedly moderate, particularly on issues of immigration and global trade. There was also the fact that he ran a campaign so bumbling that it almost made Michael Dukakis look good.

And then there was Romney’s war of words with Donald Trump during the 2016 campaign, which likely led many to perceive he secretly wished Hillary Clinton would take the Oval Office.

Trump would later consider Romney as a secretary of state pick, although how serious the president-elect was about appointing him is something we’ll likely never know.

While your average Utah Republican is unlikely to let these slights affect their vote, hardcore party activists probably don’t want another RINO who isn’t exactly known for his rapport with the president in the upper chamber of Congress, no matter how famous he may be.

For his part, Romney tried to put a good spin on the humiliation.

“I’m delighted with the outcome. Did very, very well,” he told KSTU. “On to a good, important primary ahead. This is terrific for the people of Utah.”

Dude, you just lost to a guy nobody has ever heard of. However, Kennedy was happy with the results, and unlike Romney, he had good reason to be.

“I’m a candidate with a compelling life story and a unique set of life circumstances I’d like to use to serve the people of Utah,” Kennedy said.

I have no idea what that story or those circumstances are, but I think the key point here is that he’s not Mitt Romney. If he wants to win, that’s pretty much what he should be focusing on. I can see the billboards now. “Mike Kennedy: Not Mitt Romney.” “Mike Kennedy: He didn’t borrow Ward Cleaver’s haircut.” “Mike Kennedy: Because Utah deserves a senator whose favorite food isn’t buttered noodles.”

Utah’s electorate tends to be less conservative than convention-goers, so it’s unlikely that Romney won’t be the GOP nominee for Senate. However, that’s not a 100 percent certainty — and it wouldn’t be the first time he’s lost to a Kennedy.

What do you think?
