Dianne Feinstein

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 is that I should have spoke with Senator Grassley before,” she told NBC News. “And I don’t make an excuse but I’ve had a bad cold and maybe that slowed down my mental facilities [sic] a little bit.”

Grassley said Tuesday that Feinstein’s decision to abruptly publish the documents was “confounding” and said he expected the documents to be released “when we both agreed to release it.”

    More than likely the drugs and alcohol.

    • ReverendDraco✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ ᵃᶜᶜᵒᵘᶰᵗ

      Alcohol does cause memory loss – you can tell by looking at her that she’s an alcoholic. She was probably blackout drunk.

      • Sallie Ann

        Correction “IS” a blackout drunk

        • ReverendDraco✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ ᵃᶜᶜᵒᵘᶰᵗ

          Was at the time.
          I’m sure it’s common, but I was referring to this one instance.

    • gabe

      I expect she is one of the people who the congress pharmacist admitted sending Alzheimer meds to.

  • Vernon Bennett

    Feinstein must have been suffering from a ‘bad cold’ for years!

  • elbustaroyjetspeekerson

    “Uhhh, sorry I killed that guy with an icepick, woodchipper and howitzer, Officer….I had a really bad cold”……..Hey, works for Slimestain. It should oughtta work for m………um, just a sec….huh? What’s that?……REALLY?……OK. Nevermind.

  • Cynical Old Bastard

    “Mental facilities? ” Heh-heh. Nice. Now let’s see how long it takes before some else understands

    Now let’s see understands.

    • ReverendDraco✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ ᵃᶜᶜᵒᵘᶰᵗ

      She lost control of her faculties a decade or more ago.

      • Cynical Old Bastard

        And belongs in a facility?

        • ReverendDraco✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ ᵃᶜᶜᵒᵘᶰᵗ

          Belongs in a facility with her name on it.

        • no job

          called prison

          • elbustaroyjetspeekerson

            As long as it’s called “Hell”…..

  • Phil

    A bad cold slowed down her ‘mental faculties’? How about the fact that she’s 84 years old and has been in the Senate since Moses wore short pants!

    • elbustaroyjetspeekerson

      Since Christ was a corporal……

      • ReverendDraco✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ ᵃᶜᶜᵒᵘᶰᵗ

        Since Hector was a pup.

  • Uncle Sham

    was this illegal?

  • Jim

    Feinstein is the perfect example of why there should be a mandatory congressional retirement age of 75. At 84, she is no longer of any use in congress, not that she was any use in congress in the first place.

  • elbustaroyjetspeekerson

    Damn, I was having a GREAT day, until I pulled up this non-story and got a good look at that uglier-than-sATAN’S-wide-open-asshole mug……. “….She’s got….Georgie Soros eyes….”….NO apologies to Kim Carnes.

  • Phil_Ossifer

    Her “bad cold” looks more like terminal cancer of the soul to me.

  • A bridge too far

    84. She has no business running again in 2018. RETIRE!

    • Sallie Ann

      those Communist Democrats over 80 will NEVER RETIRE….they’ll DIE FIRST as the money’s too good to pass up!!!

      • no job

        insider trading is the best in the world here. and kickbacks on top of that.

  • Sallie Ann

    BAD COLD???? Hmmmmmmm….. she should get that killer flu….and DIE….that would be a more acceptable excuse. Nice Try Diane….no CIGAR FOR YOU!!!! You need to take some Nancy lessons on stupid excuses!!!

  • Agent 86

    I guess she has had a bad cold for a very long time now.

    • elbustaroyjetspeekerson

      Say HI! to 99 fer me, Max!

    • no job

      30 years

  • elbustaroyjetspeekerson

    Aaaaand, Stewie gets the “DUH Of The Day” Award!!! Sorry, but you just missed the deadline for qualifying for “Duh Of The Week”……

  • no job

    at 84 years old, she probably doesn’t even know where or who she is. why can’t these old farts retire for crying out loud. Are they that power hungry?
