After Criticizing Obama, Sen. Feinstein Claims She’s Now Out of the Loop
Jewish Political Updates ^ | June 9, 2014 | Sol Rieger

Although she’s been there for the president multiple times in the past defending his policies, Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) now claims that since attacking the president over the Taliban prisoner exchange, she’s been left out of the loop.

She told Politico on Monday that she’s received a phone call from Deputy National Security Advisor Tony Blinken a week ago, apologizing for an ‘oversight’ in not notifying her beforehand about the exchange of Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl in return for the release of five senior Taliban officials, but since then she hasn’t received any personal outreach from the president or any other top WH official.

She told the outlet that she has no reason to believe anything will change this week. Asked in a brief interview if she anticipates any new outreach from the president, Feinstein replied: “I probably don’t expect it.”

Sen. Feinstein — the Senate Intelligence Chairwoman — has been very critical of the White House’s decision to bypass congress. The administration cited security claims that Bergdahl would have been killed if word of the swap would have leaked to congress

“We’ve been notified before when lives are at stake and that’s why we don’t leak,” she told reporters recently. “When we found out it had already happened, that was the shock, of not being notified.”

Veterans strongly disagree with the prisoner swap, according to a USA Today poll released on Monday. From the 128 veterans included in the poll, only 6% of respondents say they sympathized with him, while 33% say they were angry. By 68%-16%, veterans say Obama made the wrong decision.

Hasn’t she read the recent CNN tweet? She should take it up with Hagel.

Poor Frankenfeinstein. All she wants to do is grab guns, make billions for her husband, and act like some kind of elder stateswoman. Too bad she wasn’t expecting the Chicago Nostra

At her advanced age she should be worldly enough, and has no excuse for expecting anything else.

Feinstein has also said in the last few months that the Al Queda threat is growing. I'm sure the WH doesn't like that.

My guess is that she sees a lot of what the 60's anti America crowd is doing behind the scenes in the WH and she's positioning herself for the storms to come in the Dem party.

She talks out both sides of her mouth and knew all along.

She, EXEMPT with her family and staff to all Laws
she passes, is an Obama supporter including his
LONG TERM weaponization of terrorists
and breaking of Laws. She is exactly why Americans
have been made the Enemy of the Pentagon, and the
IRS, and the NSA.

Yeah, if memory serves, Madam Senator's husband is involved in various international deals with beaucoup moola at risk.

Being "out of the loop" is very uncomfortable under those circumstances. Obama could crook his little finger at cost her hubby millions.

DiFi’s been out of the loop for some time. She was one of the loudest Dems condemning NSA’s snooping, and there is this curious incident involving the loss of 10 million from her campaign :

Oh, please, Diane.

Surely you know how Stalin, Mao, and Fidel treated anyone who they didn’t consider to be a reliable Party operative.

And surely you know that the Obamunists are cut from exactly the same soiled cloth.

Reap what you have sown.

Out of the loop? She’s still loopy from my POV.

Looks like Obama is now treating some off the reservation Democrats in Congress with the same petty contempt he has always treated Republicans in Congress.

I think a lot of Democrats are privately praying that Obama rides out the next two years without any more major screw-ups. They know it’s getting very close to the point where they may have no choice but to publicly call for him to step down. They don’t want to do it, but they know the survival of their party is at stake (not to mention the survival of the country - but that’s secondary to them.)

Leave it to FReepers to take a piece of good news - Obama support eroding - and ignore that and hammer on past transgressions. No, Di Fi is not our new heroine; but attacks from the left are what WE need.

Shock. Dismay. Disturbed. Disappointed.

These are the words our Reps in DC are using about the Birddog swap.

Where are words like “Outraged!” “Furious” “Angry!”?

Watch—all these Dems will spout off, but they will do NOTHING about it.

Like Web Hubbell did for the Clintons, they will dutifully roll over for the Boy King—one more time.

Sen. Feinstein — the Senate Intelligence Chairwoman

There is an oxymoron if I've ever seen one. To use her name and intelligence in the same sentence is an insult to intelligent people everywhere.

White house rump swabs are trying to keep Obama clean.
