On Wednesday, President Trump gave Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) the new moniker “sneaky” because she “unilaterally released the 312-page transcript of Fusion GPS co-founder Glenn Simpson’s August interview with [Senate Judiciary Committee] investigators,” according to Fox News. He took to Twitter to accuse her of doing something “possibly illegal:”
On Thursday, Feinstein was asked why she decided not to tell committee Chairman Charles Grassley (R-IA) about releasing the testimony and stated a “bad cold” had clouded her judgment:
“The one regret I have is that I should have spoke with Senator Grassley before. And I don’t make an excuse, but I’ve had a bad cold and maybe that slowed down my mental facilities a little bit.”
We agree with a comment posted at The Washington Times and think she meant “faculties,” because a “mental facility” is something you escape from. But, you know, cloudy cold brain and all.
Recently, there has been a lot of talk about Trump’s mental capacity and unfitness to serve, but here is Feinstein blaming a head cold for causing her to make a possibly criminal decision. If that’s all it takes to shut down good decision making, can she be trusted with our nation's most sensitive matters?
