Skip to comments.Dianne Feinstein: President 'justifiably proud' of Bowe Bergdahl release
Posted on 06/08/2014 1:33:58 PM PDT by PoloSec
On "Face the Nation," the Senate Intelligence Committee's chairwoman defended the president's decision to announce Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl's release in the White House Rose Garden.
I think the president was justifiably proud of this and he wanted to say it to everybody, Dianne Feinstein said in an interview with Bob Schieffer on the CBS program.
Georgia Sen. Saxby Chambliss, that committee's top Republican, took a slightly different tone. He reiterated that he's frustrated with the administration for waiting until after the fact to tell members of Congress about the decision to trade five Guantanamo Bay detainees for Bergdahl. And he said he's found out about emerging details - such as that Bergdahl was in a cage for part of his captivity - in the same way as everyone else: from media reports. He said the administration has behaved very strangely toward him and Feinstein, and that he finds it puzzling that they weren't in the loop. Sign Up for the Politics Today newsletter!
Chambliss also added the administrations behavior regarding Bergdahls situation has been uncharacteristic.
I cant imagine anybody in the administration being able to look the American public in the eye and say, 'We never brief members of congress on ongoing operations,' Chambliss said.
He added that the administration kept him and Feinstein informed throughout hunt for Osama bin Laden, and that they knew for months about the direction things were going.
Not a day goes by that I dont get briefed on some classified aspect of our intelligence community, a lot of which is ongoing operations, he said.
She got the memo yesterday.
Their words mean nothing to them...Feinstein and those in authority now. Words are meaningless to them and they will not believe that that are going to be held accountable for them...one Day soon, I hope.
So she’s back in the reservation. I figured she wouldn’t stay AWOL too long.
The dictator has obviously given feinstein her marching orders.
See how the fascists circle the wagons, boys and girls?
Treason is the kind of thing a Democrat can be proud of.
Congress should be Justifiably Proud to bring Impeachment to this Tin Pot Dictator wanna be!
She changed her tune.
Feinstein’s been on the dole (government payroll) her whole life, and she’s 80 now ....
She just ripped him over it three days ago. I hope she is justifiably proud of her president's actions too.
I can’t remember a time in the last 50 years that Democrats didn’t celebrate deserters and traitors to the military.
It’s really quite sickening to watch their newly-found faux love and respect and knowledge of the military and “leaving no man behind”.
She was acting like a senator for about 15 minutes, but now we can go back to calling her ‘ma’am’ and all the other names.
The modern day Democratic Party is an absolute disgrace. If Scoop Jackson were alive or Sam Nunn was still in the senate they would not let this pass. They used to have decent people in that party who would stand up for this nation. Now it’s a den of ignorant, left-wing, America-hating ideological bombthrowers. They are not worth the time of day.
She was taken to task
Senile old bag can’t recall what she has said from day to day.
Now all of the sudden she just thinks it’s all just Jim Dandy huh? I sure would have loved to listen in on the phone calls she got from the WH and Hairy Reid.
Proud to have aided and abetted the enemy
I wonder what her price was?
Or could she just not contain her loyalty to party vs. country?
WE watched this show this morning, we never watch it.
Feinstein came on everyone wanted to watch her. My prediction was she would be back on tem Taliban obama.
Didn’t get to the end of her interview/rant. We had all gone on to other things or were hypnotic.
She is not what we are used to in informative shows. She went on and on and on and on and on and it was illogical.
There was no way to watch it. It was complete nonsense, muttering and stuttering people’s mispronounced names, mispronounced stuttered-over unidentifiable cities, bla bla bla bla bla bla.
I negated my prediction, not caring any more.
Then Sheiffer cam on with a question for Chambliss. It was an endless droning on of propaganda, preamble on and on and on, The kids screamed git it off.
And that was just Sheiffer asking the question.
If that’s what people think politics is about, no wonder they are uninvolved.
It is incoherent.
I saw yesterday, on the news, that you were criticizing my release of the five Gitmo detainees, for Bowe Bergdahl. I believe you called it 'unlawful'.Kiss kiss hug hug,
Did you know that the NSA collects ALL the communications you and your husband have made, and we have a comprehensive collection from 2004 until present? I hope there is nothing 'unlawful' in there.
I trust, after careful consideration, that I can sway you to my side in this affair.
President Barack Obama
Senile communist nut has been off this reservation for years.
Notsofeinstein will receive payment for her services. Her price was met.
She’s no worse than Republicans. She’s been told that turning on the Prez now would sink any chance they have in 2014 to keep the Senate.
GOP has announced they can’t impeach because it would motivate the Dem vote in 2014.
Feinstein just can not get over being ignorant as well as stupid. Just another shill for Obama and his clan.
Dying Frankenstein is against guns but has no problem with releasing terrorists. Yeah makes sense.
If the regime can take a black hispanic turn him into a white hispanic. Who was doing his job rightfully checking out a suspicious activity into a racist stalking. Portray that modest income integrated gated community where he was working security and turn that into an exclusive white rich jews neighborhood. Then make a victim out of his attacker because he could have been my (Obamas)son or later even could have been me (Obama).
Then have that story go unchallanged by any in political opposition getting repeated for months as truth. Resulting in at least a dozen or more whites,hispanics and asians being murdered by black youths attributing their activity to that episode.
Why cant they take a traitor converted terrorist and make him into a national hero ?
Wish I could say the same of either of my State Senators!
Sounds like DiFi got a friendly reminder as to who she is expected to unfailingly support at all times.
Dentate Intelligent Committee? Shouldn’t the head of that committee HAVE INTELLIGENCE?
Looks like someone “got Feinstein’s mind right”.
