A photo of Senator Dianne Feinstein has resurfaced from 2018, which appears to show the Democrat leader bullying Senator Lisa Murkowski during the Kavanaugh hearings.
Many outlets reported on the picture, assuming it was recent, and related to the upcoming Senate hearings on Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett. This has been debunked by multiple outlets, which have all confirmed that the photo was taken in 2018.
‘RINO’: Senator Lisa Murkowski
This photo may be emblematic of the upcoming fight over the Supreme Court nominee, as Senator Murkowski has already flip-flopped multiple times on her position.
“For weeks, I have stated that I would not support taking up a potential Supreme Court vacancy this close to the election. Sadly, what was then a hypothetical is now our reality, but my position has not changed,” Murkowski said on Sunday.
A few days later, the Alaskan senator changed her tune a bit, stating: “I can’t confirm whether or not I can confirm a nominee when I don’t know who the nominee is.”
Former Alaska governor and former vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin recently called Murkowski out for her statements, even hinting that she may challenge the senator in the 2022 primary. “Lisa, I can see 2022 from my house,” Palin said in a video posted to her Instagram account.
It seems that the country is watching the same story play out again with Senator Murkowski. In 2018, she chose to vote against the nomination of now-Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, though she chose the cowardly option of simply voting ‘present’.
Murkowski seems to be spineless, which is why the picture of Senator Feinstein nearly holding her up against the wall is so striking. In the picture, Murkowski has her back to the wall while Feinstein has her hand on the wall next to Murkowski’s head, and the two are almost close enough for their faces to touch.
Murkowski seems to be caving to pressure from Democrats in the current fight for the Supreme Court seat, which allowed for many seeing this picture to believe it was recent.
Not Surprised Feinstein is Acting Corruptly
If the picture truly depicts Senator Feinstein bullying Senator Murkowski over the Kavanaugh vote, no one will be surprised. Feinstein has a history of corrupt actions, which she seems to get away with.
Recently, her husband, Richard Blum, was caught in the national college admissions scandal. As a regent at the University of California, Blum was not permitted to send letters of recommendation outside of the proper channels. He used his power at the university to send these letters to chancellors of multiple UC campuses, including UC Berkeley, UC Davis, and UC Irvine, to help friends and family get into these schools under false pretenses.
Blum told the San Francisco Chronicle he believes that he has done nothing wrong, and that he’s used his position to get friends and family into the elite school system for years.
Perhaps the worst scandal of Feinstein’s career was the fact that a Chinese spy in her office for almost 20 years. The media barely reported on it, giving the senator enough cover that she has never truly had to answer for this egregious violation.
According to a report from The Daily Wire, the mole from the Chinese government “served as Feinstein’s driver, an office gofer, a liaison to the Asian-American community, and even attended Chinese consulate functions on behalf of the senator.”
Feinstein supposedly had no idea that the man was a spy, and was apparently “mortified” when she was informed of this by the FBI. She reportedly forced the spy to resign, but did not inform her staff of the allegations.
Jeff Harp, a former FBI agent, noted that he was not surprised by the infiltration. “Think about Diane Feinstein and what she had access to. One, she had access to the Chinese community here in San Francisco; great amount of political influence. Two, correct me if I’m wrong, Dianne Feinstein still has very close ties to the intelligence committees there in Washington, D.C.,” Harp said.
When Feinstein was informed of the spy on her staff, she was the chairwoman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, with access to highly classified information.
As usual, Democrats are able to get away with actions that Republicans would be politically crucified, or even jailed, for committing. As we get closer to the election, Democrats will use this ability as an advantage to push RINOs like Senator Murkowski into falling in line with their plans for the country. We can only hope that the Senate and President Trump will be able to overcome this hurdle to confirm Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett, and ultimately to win in the November election.
