Feinstein on Being Called a Prostitute: 'He's Got a Rather Large Mouth'

"And all sorts of things come out."

Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), chair of the Intelligence Committee, said former governor of Montana, Brian Schweitzer (D), has "a rather large mouth" for essentially calling her a prostitute over her role surrounding the NSA spying scandal.

Appearing on CNN's State of the Union with Candy Crowley, the senator said her first reaction was to laugh after Schweitzer said, "She was the woman who was standing under the streetlight with her dress pulled all the way up over her knees, and now she says, 'I'm a nun,' when it comes to this spying."

Feinstein elaborated:

My first reaction was that I laughed. To tell you the truth, he's got clearly a rather large mouth and all sorts of things come out. I think that's really too bad, but it is the way it is. 

Crowley asked if he had ever apologized. Feinstein replied, "No." She left it at actions speak louder than words.
