Sen. Feinstein on California's UFO history: “I don’t know what you’re talking about"

Ep. 37 — Sen. Dianne Feinstein (7-27-2023)

We asked Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) about California’s long history of UFO sightings, along with contemporary whistleblower David Grusch.

“I don’t know what you’re talking about," Feinstein, the recent former chair of the Senate Intelligence Committee, replied.

For those who complain we’re bothering a Level 3 convalescent — we’re in 1,000,000% agreement.

It’s been appalling watching Feinstein wheeled from her stately hideaway suite tucked in the hidden, maze-like attic of the Capitol to the Senate floor to vote in word only.

But Feinstein is one of a mere 100 US senators. I have always treated her with the respect her title commands, which means telling her constituents — her voters — exactly what I see.

Last August that meant reporting on Sens. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) and Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) escorting a bewildered Feinstein off the Senate floor — with Warren comparing the senior senator of California to her own puppy.

On January 26, 2023 at 3:05 AM, Raw Story published my exclusive of Feinstein telling me she wouldn’t announce her 2024 intentions until 2024.

“I need a little bit of time,” Feinstein told me. “So it's not this year.”

Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) announced his bid to replace her just hours later, because it seems Sen. Feinstein stepped on her staff’s talking points — about her.

Watching a titan deteriorate in front of your eyes is something I wish on no one.

This is a complicate Congress, otherwise I’d ask lawmakers to define where politics-as-usual ends and elder abuse begins.
