During a Senate Judiciary Committee meeting, Feinstein said “[W]e hold China as a potential trading partner, as a country that has pulled tens of millions of people out of poverty in a short period of time, and as a country growing into a respectable nation amongst other nations. I deeply believe that.”
Feinstein added that stripping foreign sovereign immunity from China would be a “huge mistake” and said that holding China accountable for the virus spread could “allow other countries to do the same to the United States,” according to theWashington Free Beacon. Feinstein said this while debating a bill allowing individuals to sue the Chinese government for releasing and covering up the Wuhan virus.
She must not want to upset her old pals:
SAN FRANCISCO (KPIX 5) – New details emerged Wednesday about how a Chinese spy managed to stay by Senator Dianne Feinstein’s side for nearly 20 years.
It happened five years ago, but additional information is just surfacing about how the Bay Area senator’s office was infiltrated by a Chinese spy.
The Bay Area is a hotbed for Russian and Chinese espionage. Late last year, the feds shut down the Russian consulate in San Francisco.
You may remember the thick black smoke that billowing from building before Russian diplomats turned it over to authorities, presumably produced by burning documents.
Now, all eyes are on Chinese intelligence in the Bay Area after the website Politico reported last week that a staffer for Senator Feinstein turned out to be a Chinese spy who reported back to the government officials about local politics.
On Wednesday, the San Francisco Chronicle uncovered additional details in a column written by reporters Phil Matier and Andy Ross.
The column revealed that the Chinese spy was Feinstein’s driver who also served as a gofer in her Bay Area office and was a liaison to the Asian-American community.
He even attended Chinese consulate functions for the senator.
Feinstein — who was Chair of the Senate Intelligence Committee at the time — was reportedly mortified when the FBI told her she’d been infiltrated.
Why wouldn’t she want to cover for China? They probably have a TON of dirt on her that could ruin her career and her life. Best to just screw over Americans I guess.....
