Senator calls for new Russia investigation


(CNN)California Sen. Dianne Feinstein is uniquely situated at the center of the ongoing probe into Russia's involvement in the 2016 election as she sits on both the Senate intelligence and judiciary committees. (She is the highest-ranking Democrat on the judiciary committee.) Feinstein's centrality to all of this means that when she talks, we would do well to listen.

And, man, did she have something to say Friday. Here's her full statement on President Donald Trump's latest tweets about the special counsel investigation being led by former FBI Director Bob Mueller:



"I'm growing increasingly concerned that the President will attempt to fire not only Robert Mueller, the special counsel investigating possible obstruction of justice, but also Deputy Attorney General Rosenstein who appointed Mueller.

"The message the President is sending through his tweets is that he believes the rule of law doesn't apply to him and that anyone who thinks otherwise will be fired. That's undemocratic on its face and a blatant violation of the President's oath of office.

“if the president thinks he can fire…Rosenstein & replace him w/ someone who will shut down the investigation, he’s in for a rude awakening”

3. To elmac...oh it gave me goose bumps to read your post!! In a good way

Only once in my life have I ever had a truly prophetic dream. I actually saw my father's impending sudden death, who I was very close to. At first I awakened and thought...who died?

A couple of weeks ago, at the edge of awake and asleep, I said to myself... he's gone!! I knew it was the orange man immediately. The feeling I felt in that dreamy state was one of such relief!!

Dream... and it might come true...a line from a 1944 tune. Hope hope hope!!!!

4. Thank you for your reply

I remember I had mixed feelings during the dream, relief at first then realizing that Pence would be president and so nothing had really changed. I remember the dream and my thoughts quite clearly.

6. Malcolm Nance was on Stephanie Miller this morning...

he said he didn't think for one second Dumpster would resign and he'd have to be dragged out of the WH by the Sergeant at Arms and thrown into a car to unceremoniously in NYC. LOL....Wouldn't that be great!!???

13. Nope

It could go on for 8 more years. The GOP is loaded with sociopaths and the voting machines appeare to be rigged. Add to that, that this slow rolling coup has been going on since Reagan and I think you competely underestimate the staying power of this horror.

5. I'm confused. thought Rosenstein was gonna have to recuse himself due to being

involved in Comey firing, which meant he couldn't oversee Mueller's investigation of that????

10. Democrats are not tiptoeing around

Their timing is impeccable having given Trump enough rope, now they are
seizing legitimacy, morality, as well as the elusive common good, and public
opinion is moving against Trump. High sails and a wind at our back ... let's
keep it going.
