Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) is involved in a scandal that so far the media has completely ignored. David Keene Reports
The problems stem from her subcommittee activities from 2001 to late 2005, when she quit. During that period the public record suggests she knowingly took part in decisions that eventually put millions of dollars into her husbands pocket the classic conflict of interest that exploited her position and power to channel money to her husbands companies.

Here it is yet again. Conservatives get the front page treatment while liberals are a protected class.

The old media likes their bread ‘buttered’ and we the taxpayers seldom hear about the money the corrupt in congress pay the ‘old media’ to rub their backs, and in turn ‘butter’ the old media’s bread. It’s a protection racket worthy of prosecution, but the corruption continues.

This is a fact and the MSM and Lawyers are running America. Al Capone and the mafia are not as corrupt as the MSM and Democrat Party. The steady diet of lies being fed to America and the Democrat coverups need to be attacked daily. “Duke” Cunningham and Abramhoff are small compared to the Feinsteins,Pelosi;s and Reids. This crap works for the Democrats because lawyers are in control. No one questions how the Clintons and the ABA covered up 9/11. Remember how the 9/11 Commission had two Clinton layers and a Clinton Democrat cover-up for him. Tim Roemer was a Clinton lapdog. Richard Buenavista was a Clinton lawyer and Jamie Gorelick covered up her part. Sandy Berger manipulated the evidence before the commission got it and the beat goes on. America is doomed if we do not have another Revolution.

I think it has more to do with the Republicans in the House and Senate sitting silent. Again!
The Dem’s would find a microphone every 5 minutes if this were an (R).
Can you imagine our forefathers trying to start a Revolution today? The old media and the corrupt politicians would be calling for them to be killed.

part of the problem that i have been observing is that the libs cry rant rave and pound the drum when they see something like this (real or imagined) ....where as conservatives IMHO simply shrug their shoulders and say thats the media for you...

You got that right. I remember how much effort the left put into getting the Plame story in the news. I bet only one or two people here have contacted their representatives with this story or asked the media for more information on the story.

Why aren’t the rep senators demanding she be investigated? Where is the outrage?

Time for us on the web to call for her to quit.

Maybe I’m off track here... But...
Are the same Dems who are ignoring this the same folks BLASTING Haliburton/KBR, Blackwater, etc, for “war profiteering”??? Seems like more of the same hypocrisy from the liberal left.....
To clarify..... I don’t think Halliburton, etc, are profiteering... just that they are accused of it....

Why is there such widespread corruption in the Democrat party?

Another example of the MSM’s selective reporting syndrome.
Where is the senate minority leader on all of this ?

O’Reilly said it best when he illustrated how Soros’ billions get funneled through Media Matters. If a Rat is elected in 08, (God forbid) Media Matters can openly start saying “We will decide what is fit to report and what is not.”

She quit the committee so that’s a good enough reason to forgo an investigation by the AG or for her to be held accountable for her illegal activity. (I’d like to know how much $ she and her hubby made as a direct result from her decision/influence while on that committee). Fact: US politicians (mostly Dems) are obviously above the law. Why? because we, the common citizens, continue to allow it.
To: liberty or death
I want to know WHERE ARE THE REPUBLICANS who SHOULD BE drumming her out of office on this??? Are they investigating? Any committees to do so?
