Skip to comments.Feinstein’s Cardinal shenanigans [caught in huge financial corruption scam]
Posted on 05/01/2007 7:02:38 AM PDT by pabianice
Anyone who knows much about real power in Congress knows that almost every member of the House and Senate lusts after a seat on the Appropriations Committee and hopes one day to achieve the status of Cardinal. The Cardinals, of course, are the folks who chair the various Appropriations Committee subcommittees and literally control the billions of dollars that pass through their hands.
California Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D) chairs the Senate Rules Committee, but shes also a Cardinal. She is currently chairwoman of the Interior, Environment and Related Agencies subcommittee, but until last year was for six years the top Democrat on the Military Construction, Veterans Affairs, and Related Agencies (or Milcon) sub-committee, where she may have directed more than $1 billion to companies controlled by her husband.
If the inferences finally coming out about what she did while on Milcon prove true, she may be on the way to morphing from a respected senior Democrat into another poster child for congressional corruption.

Like anything’ll come of this.
Lest we not forget, the Congress is the most corruptable group of people in America...and that is nothing new, it is just getting worse because lawlessness in Washington is acceptable (especially if you are a ThugoRat) and it just goes on unchallenged...legislation for sale...lobbyists run amuck...etc, etc.
The Dems are the ultimate when it comes to corruption. Reporting is the secret. Newspapers gotta sell. Remember Captain Ed made his name reporting on the Scandal in Canada.
Hang her from the tallest tree.
The subtitle, 101 More Ways to Salvage Freedom, and the title of chapter 10, Why should they Stop if Nobody Punishes Them? pretty much gives us a hint that this is not a new problem...
Guilty until proven innocent. The demonrat way.
Isn't democracy grand?
Yeah...PURE Democracy=majority rules (except where Liberals have established certain “protected classes”, as in minorities (women, blacks, sex deviates, Democrats, etc.)
BTTT! Democrat Crime Syndicate Member...Method of Operation.
It should be fully investigated and, if true, she should be indicted along with her hubby. The AG though is under so much pressure, he will never do it - he does not have the spine.
The boy fell out of the ugly tree and hit every branch on his way down.
Feinstein profiteered, troops died.
This story first came out about a month ago on an Internet site but has yet to reach the MSM. I smell a cover up. I live in the SF Bay Area, which is Feinstein’s residency. Not one branch of the bay area media has covered this story. If this is not a cover up nothing is. We will see if the Hill, which is paper for DC insiders, will cause it to be covered by the MSM. I have my doubts.
I can’t believe it got this much coverage.
Remember that this falls squarely in the lap of the U. S. Attorneys resident in California. There is at least a chance that one will want to make a reputation as a barnyard dog.
We can hope.
