    Sen. Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.) has refused to endorse his Senate colleague Dianne Feinstein (D., Calif.) in her primary campaign. The 84-year-old Feinstein seeks to retain her seat in the face of progressive challengers, and Sanders declined to endorse any candidate in the race, The Hill reports. The California Democratic Party was split on the race, and Sanders said he would leave the matter of who to nominate up to voters in the Golden State. "It’s an issue for the people of California," Sanders told The Hill. A reporter followed up by asking if he would stay out of the...

    Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D., Calif.) said in a recent piece profiling her Democratic colleague Sen. Kamala Harris (Calif.) that it is "too early" to tell whether the potential 2020 candidate would make a good president. Feinstein's remarks came in a Politico piece published Thursday and titled, "Kamala Harris keeps 'em guessing." The piece reflects on Harris' first year in the Senate and how she has become a rising star in the Democratic party, describing the senator as a "serious-minded lawmaker" and as someone who "bones up on policy and can engage on substance." While the junior senator from California has...

    The California Democratic Party decided not to endorse in the U.S. Senate contest on Saturday, an embarrassing rebuke of veteran Sen. Dianne Feinstein. Feinstein, who has represented California in the Senate for a quarter-century, is facing an insurgent bid by a fellow Democrat, state Senate leader Kevin de León. He earned nearly 500 more votes than the senator, who was first elected in 1992. De León has cultivated relationships with the party’s delegates. He still faces a significant challenge in trying to topple Feinstein, who trounces De León in all public polling and fund-raising. The party also did not endorse...

    The California Democratic Party did not endorse Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D., Calif.) on Sunday, with just 37 percent of the state's delegates supporting her at the party's convention. Meanwhile, primary challenger State Senate leader Kevin de León got the support of 54 percent of the delegates, meaning both fell short of the 60 percent needed to secure the party endorsement, The Mercury News reports: The rebuke of Feinstein by the party delegates comes even though the 25-year incumbent has led polls by wide margins and has received broad support from state party luminaries like Sen. Kamala Harris and House Minority...

    New evidence suggests that a former top staffer for Sen.

    Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., the ranking member on the Senate Judiciary Committee, said the criminal referral is "not based on any allegation" that Christopher Steele, the author of the infamous Trump-Russia dossier, lied to FBI investigators about former Trump aide Carter Page, or what was included in the dossier. Senate Judiciary Committee Ranking Member Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., slammed the criminal referral of Christopher Steele by Sens. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, and Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., saying it has numerous “flaws” and “omits key facts.” In a five-page analysis released Friday, Feinstein says the criminal referral is “not based on any allegation” that...

    ...It didn’t take long for a report to emerge claiming that Russian-sponsored Twitter accounts and bots were the real driving force behind the viral call for the release of the memo. Without worrying about the veracity of this convenient claim, all the usual suspects giddily spread the story across social media — probably because they have such a deep reverence for truth in the Era of Trump. The report also prompted Sen. Dianne Feinstein and Rep. Adam Schiff, both Democrats, to pull out every fearmongering catchphrase available to demand that Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey and Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg perform...

    The top-ranking Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee suggested Wednesday the Republican chairman disrespected a female senator by holding a hearing over her objection to a judicial pick from her home state. Sen. Tammy Baldwin, Wisconsin Democrat, had withheld her “blue slip” on the nomination of Michael Brennan, President Trump’s pick to a seat to a Wisconsin-held seat on the 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. Ms. Baldwin said the state’s bipartisan commission for nominating judicial nominees was ignored by the Trump White House. But Chairman Charles E. Grassley, Iowa Republican, held a hearing on Mr. Brennan on Wednesday, suggesting...

    During his testimony before Congress in August, Fusion GPS founder Glenn Simpson said that the FBI had a source inside the Trump campaign who gave credence to the infamous dossier the company created for the Democrats. He repeated the claim in a New York Times op-ed on January 2. But today, Fusion GPS is retracting that statement, saying that Simpson "mischaracterized" the source. Washington Times: Then suddenly, as quick as the headlines went up, some one close to Fusion was waving off reporters. Mr. Simpsonhad “mischaracterized” the source. It was not some one on the Trump inside, but apparently an...

    WASHINGTON — California Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein told The Daily Caller that Fusion GPS lawyers asked her to release company co-founder Glenn Simpson’s testimony transcript. She released the testimony Tuesday before consulting with Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, which she told TheDC she regrets. Feinstein is the top Democrat on the committee. “We were written to by the lawyers of the company asking that it be released, and the reason, of course, is because it has been used by rumor and innuendo and falsity so much that the time came for people to see exactly what was said,” Feinstein...

Feinstein, who is the ranking member on the Senate Judiciary Committee, released the transcript without consulting Committee Chairman Sen. Chuck Grassley (R., Iowa) and said Wednesday that she was "pressured" to do so. On Thursday, however, she said she was not pressured and denied ever having said that. "I made no statement to that effect," Feinstein said about being pressured. BuzzFeed reporter Emma Loop pressed the senator further, saying that there is a recording of...

    Ever since the transcript of Fusion-GPS Co-Founder Glenn Simpson’s testimony to the Senate Judiciary Committee was released by Senator Dianne Feinstein, several inquisitive media outlets have begun questioning the relationship between the FBI investigators, Glenn Simpson and dossier author Christopher Steele. What we have discovered not only highlights the answer to that question, but it also answers a host of other questions, including: Did the FBI pay Christopher Steele? Yes, but now how media thinks. Was the FBI connected to the creation of the Steele Dossier? Yes, but not in the way the media is currently outlining.

    Washington—Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) today called on President Trump to close the prison at Guantanamo: “It was 16 years ago today that the first detainees arrived at the Guantanamo Bay detention facility. Since then, 780 detainees have been held there. I have called on both the Obama and Bush administrations to remove and transfer all detainees and close the facility, and hundreds of detainees have been transferred or released. Today, 41 detainees remain, five of whom have been cleared for transfer to other countries and 36 who remain in legal limbo. “This prison has cost taxpayers more than $5 billion,...

    This week Sen. Dianne Feinstein released the transcript of an August 22, 2017, Senate Judiciary Committee interview with Fusion GPS founder Glenn Simpson. The Washington Post said the committee has been probing charges that the Trump campaign “coordinated with the Kremlin,” escalating the issue from mere “collusion.” Readers of the 312-page transcript, available here, might form their own judgments.   Simpson was not under oath but the Fusion GPS founder still brought along attorney Joshua Levy. Simpson gave the names of Fusion partners but they are blacked out. There may be others, but Simpson could not recall their names.

    Democratic California Sen. Dianne Feinstein suggested a “bad cold” may have impaired her mental faculties and caused her to release Fusion GPS founder Glenn Simpson’s testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee without telling committee chairman Chuck Grassley. Feinstein published Simpson’s testimony on Tuesday, catching Republicans by surprise. Simpson’s testimony, taken during August of last year, covered his firm’s role in producing the infamous anti-Trump dossier for the Clinton campaign and Democratic National Committee. Feinstein, 84, expressed regret on Wednesday for keeping Sen. Grassley in the dark, and suggested it was because of a “bad cold.” “The one regret I have...
