Pathetic. Earlier today she made it quite clear that the leaks are coming from the White House. No equivocation whatsoever. And now?
Sen. Dianne Feinstein said Tuesday that she shouldn’t have speculated about leaks coming from the White House, walking back hear earlier comments that the White House was partly responsible for the leak of national security information.
The California Democrat, who chairs of the Senate Intelligence Committee, said she regretted speculating about the White House’s role in leaks relating to national security.
“I was asked [at the World Affairs Council on Monday] whether the White House might be responsible for recent national security leaks. I stated that I did not believe the president leaked classified information. I shouldn’t have speculated beyond that, because the fact of the matter is I don’t know the source of the leaks,” Feinstein said in her statement.
Feinstein is currently the chair of the Senate Intelligence Committee. She would know where the leaks are coming from. Perhaps her comments were a warning to the White House, but as I noted on Tammy Radio today, the leaking of classified national security secrets warrants a Special Investigator. If Feinstein is limited to playing ‘gotcha’ games in public to get a president of her own party to act properly, you know we’re all in a lot of trouble. Here are her comments which make it clear what the situation is.
Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-Cali.) states that the national security leaks did indeed come from the White House.
“I think the White House has to understand that some of this is coming from its ranks. I don’t know specifically where, but I think they have to begin to understand that and do something about it,” Feinstein said.
