Will Dems manage to stall inquiries into the leak of classified information on sensitive intel operations until November 7?
Of all people, Dianne Feinstein is pointing fingers at the White House, via AP:
The Democratic leader of the Senate Intelligence Committee said Monday that the White House appears to be responsible for some leaks of classified information.
“I think the White House has to understand that some of this is coming from their ranks,” Sen. Dianne Feinstein told a World Affairs Council forum.
Needless to say, Feinstein is still protecting Obama:
The California lawmaker said she was certain that President Barack Obama, who receives a daily intelligence briefing, isn’t disclosing secret information, but she was uncertain about others at the White House. “I don’t believe for a moment that he goes out and talks about it,” she said.
Of course Obama is talking not about classified information. The people who want to show how tough he has been on terrorism and Iran know what to do without his say so.
Update: DiFi has changed her story already, Feinstein backtracks on statement that White House leaked secrets. Good thing, otherwise she’d be seated at the Cory Booker table in the outer parking lot for the Dem Convention.
