Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) had many “anxieties” and “fears” about Sen. Jeff Sessions’ (R-AL) nomination to attorney general, she said in her opening statement during his confirmation hearing on Tuesday. Can he effectively “dispatch himself from President-elect Donald Trump and his record,” she wondered. In particular, Feinstein insisted that Sessions’ job does not include the prosecution of former secretary of state Hillary Clinton, who we all know abused her email use and put national security at risk. During the 2016 presidential campaign, Trump suggested that he was going to hire a special prosecutor to “look into her situation.”
“An attorney general does not prosecute at direction of the president,” Feinstein said. Nor, she said, does he or she wear two hats – one as the president’s lawyer and one as the people’s lawyer.
“The attorney general must put aside loyalty to the president,” she said. The law and Constitution, she emphasized, must come first and foremost.
She hopes Sessions is up for this “awesome responsibility.”
Feinstein had a few other concerns. She claimed there’s much “fear” in the African-American community regarding Sessions’ attorney general nomination.
James, that is a gem of a point you made. Do unto others as they have done unto you is a fitting response when one is dealing with liars and criminals in the arena of politics.
Why should Sessions conduct himself any differently than Holder and Lynch? Both of which the democrats are proud of?
It points out the sheer hypocrisy of those who embrace criminality while pretending justice is what they are all about. What a farce it is. Sick
Thank you. I knew we could agree on a lot more things than we disagreed on and DJT in office I think he will not take any crap from anyone, including Putin.
Did you watch his press conference? HE BLASTED cnn and would not let him ask a question. I about fell out of my Lazy Boy laughing so hard. Man is it good to laugh again!!!
Feinstein is scared that she will be next. Trump promised to prosecute Hillebeast and he will. Then he will come after all others who oppose Trump. Eliminating the opposition and the lies told about Trump are necessary to make America great again, to restore our values and our democracy. We the people did not give Trump a landslide victory to have to deal with this dumb dissent.
I JUST HEARD THIS OLD WRINKLEY HAG/CRONE JUST HAD A PACEMAKER INSTALLED........
ANYBODY HAVE A PORTABLE MICROWAVE OVEN HANDY........
ONE GOOD JOLT SHOULD DO IT..........VIOLA.................................
Yeah....guess she did, just this past week:
Feinstein is a textbook example of what Democrats with a willing MSM to look the other way are capable of. She moves government contracts to her husbands company with impunity.
And they have the audacity to call Trump using his son-in-law as a resource "nepotism"....
She's one of the stupidest Democrats next to Nancy Polockski in the democrat party. Both dumber than dirt.
They both are Criminally Insane Robert..!
Finklestein has anxiety and fears over anything that isn't her own idea.
Frankenstein lying POS communist pig dike.
