Feinstein Had Dinner Meeting With Iran's Foreign Minister
Townhall ^ | May 23, 2019 | Leah Barkoukis

Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) had a dinner meeting with Iranian foreign minister Javad Zarif, Politico Playbook reported Thursday morning—a move even the left-leaning media outlet called “unusual.”

Feinstein’s staff told Politico the meeting, which took place a few weeks ago, was “in consultation with the State Department” but it was not at State’s request that she go.

"The office was in touch with State in advance of the meeting to let them know it was happening and to get an update on U.S.-Iran activity," the California Democrat’s office said.

Iran is desperate due to President Trump's sanctions.

There only option may be to work with the dishonest traitors in the Democrat Party.

The Communist Chinese may have told the Iranians the best way to deal with Senator Feinstein.

Are there not laws against this sort of thing?

The democrats are acting like Presidents.

I don't know if he can do it, by an E.O. stating no legislator can meet with foriegn leadership without Presidential permission or a Presidential emmisarry present might be in order.

President Trump will survive all of this and do a second term, but too many precedents are being established that will kill the U.S.A.

She is probably trying to replace her driver for the last 20 years who was a Chinese spy.

Feinstein’s got her mouth, and her ability to divulge classified material to which she is privy.

PDJT has the United States Navy, the Air Force, the Marines, and all the satellites and other surveillance assets of the executive branch.

At least those that aren’t busy spying on him and his staff and turning over what they discover to the Democrat Party.

Not that I think Feinstein would act in the interest of the United States, but presidents have been known to use non state department people to deliver messages. It has to be done carefully. You could have dinner with a foreign politician and be legal so long as you don’t profess to represent the government. Frankly though, this was a bad idea on her part. There is no way anything she discussed would help the United States. If it was recorded she could be accused of treason.

“presidents have been known to use non state department people to deliver messages. It has to be done carefully”

It appears that neither President Trump nor the State Department wanted Feinstein to do this.

From the article:

“it was not State’s request that she go.”

Feinstein: "Laws? Laws are for you little peons. I am a Democrat."

Martha Stewart left behind some good recipes for Feinstein's future dinners in "Prison Life Cook Book: Cookin' For A Crowd."

She may be too nervous to eat dinner after meeting "Butch" her lifer bunkmate.

And AOC will try to bring her a cake with a file in it---a disc with a pdf file.

LOL ..... he was windsurfing. Kerry's political positions and his hobbies both depend on which way the wind blows.
