Chinese spy who worked for CA Sen. Feinstein 5 years ago is now center of media focus

Chinese spy who worked for CA Sen. Feinstein 5 years ago is now center of media focus

The news may be an attempt to undermine Feinstein’s current support among California voters.

The last time we check on the California race for US Senate, The state’s Democrat Party leadership endorsed progressive challenger Kevin de Leon over the incumbent Dianne Feinstein.
Therefore, the timing of a new report about a Chinese spy who was by Feinstein’s side for nearly 20 years is fascinating.

…[A]ll eyes are on Chinese intelligence in the Bay Area after the website Politico reported last week that a staffer for Senator Feinstein turned out to be a Chinese spy who reported back to the government officials about local politics.

On Wednesday, the San Francisco Chronicle uncovered additional details in a column written by reporters Phil Matier and Andy Ross.

The column revealed that the Chinese spy was Feinstein’s driver who also served as a gofer in her Bay Area office and was a liaison to the Asian-American community.

He even attended Chinese consulate functions for the senator.

He was forced to retire 5 years ago, after FBI officials apprised Feinstein about his activities.

“Besides driving her around when she was in California, the staffer also served as gofer in her San Francisco office and as a liaison to the Asian American community, even attending Chinese Consulate functions for the senator.

According to our source, the intrigue started years earlier when the staffer took a trip to Asia to visit relatives and was befriended by someone who continued to stay in touch with him on subsequent visits.

That someone was connected with the People’s Republic of China’s Ministry of State Security.

“He didn’t even know what was happening — that he was being recruited,” says our source. “He just thought it was some friend.”

The FBI apparently concluded the driver hadn’t revealed anything of substance.

Why is this news being released? A possible explanation is that the Democratic Party’s current leaders in the Left Coast want a fresh face sooner rather than later, and a recent poll focused on the state of the senate race does not look promising for Feinstein’s challenger:

In her bid for a fifth full term as US senator, Dianne Feinstein leads fellow Democrat and state senator Kevin de León 46 percent to 24 percent among likely voters, with 9 percent undecided. She has majority support among Democratic likely voters (66%) and leads de León among independents (38% to 24%). With no Republican candidates to choose from, 47 percent of Republican likely voters and 24 percent of independents say they would not vote in this race.

Feinstein leads by at least 20 points among likely voters across education and racial/ethnic groups, as well as among women, those age 55 and older, and residents in Los Angeles and the San Francisco Bay Area. When the likely voters who volunteer that they would not vote in this race are excluded, Feinstein has a 28-point lead (58% to 30%).

Perhaps the Democrats think that news of a Chinese spy might cause Feinstein’s Republican and independent voters to reconsider their choice. Another good sign for the current US Senator: She did NOT make Obama’s endorsement list.

I doubt the “spy story” will work as hoped, and I pray Feinstein has 6 healthy years ahead of her. I dread what is likely to follow when she finally leaves office.

Let’s see… Debbie Whatsername Schulz let a bunch of Pakistanis run rampant through the Dim server network, Feinstein had a Chicom spy on her payroll for half a decade, Hillary took hundreds of millions from various foreign governments, Obama got caught on a hot-mic saying he’d be “more flexible after the elections” to let the Russians roll through some more Eastern European countries, but….

Russia! Russia! Russia!

For fuck’s sake, do they honestly not understand why they’re being called “Fake News?”

    “the timing of a new report about a Chinese spy who was by Feinstein’s side for nearly 20 years is fascinating.” He worked for her for 20 years, not 5.

Since I live in California–where we have a jungle primary–my two choices on the general election ballot for US Senator both have a (D) next to their name. As in Dumb and Dumber. And that was certainly true back in the days when Barbara “Baghdad” “Call Me Senator” Boxer roamed the Senate floor alongside Di Fi. But Di Fi appeared to be the smarter of the two Senators from California. Admittedly that was a very low bar, but she was smarter than Babs.

Now it appears she had a Chicom spy on staff for half a decade(?) twenty years(?) –I’ve heard both figures. So yeah, she’s dumb.

But her fellow Democrat opponent this November–Kevin De Leon is a real peach. He makes Di Fi look like Albert effin Einstein. There is more than a taint of corruption around him. Just imagine what fun the Senate will have with Kevin De Leon and Kamala Harris.

Feinstein has been on the Senate Intelligence Committee since 2001.

… a staffer for Senator Feinstein turned out to be a Chinese spy who reported back to the government officials about local politics.

Somehow, I don’t see reports on local politics as likely to be at the top of this guy’s “to do” list.

Would it undermine Feinstein’s support? Chi-Com favorability has been trending in California since the ’60s.

Forget it, Jake, it’s a Democrat.

Funny thing is that Feinstein is one of the more honest and competent democrats – low bar there I know.

20 years. It just goes to show the deep state has a torpedo for everyone, just saved up for when it’s time.

Recall the old days – DiFi wanting guns banned -while for years and years – she carried a .38 revolver after the Milk murder.

DiFi grandstanding on a stage with anti gun activists in SF holding a AR-15 with her finger on the trigger. I’m sure the photo is on the net somewhere.

It was always said that DiFi would leak intel because she was the sort of person unable to keep secrets. She simply ran her mouth to feel important. That’s an old story from the mid 90’s

Given the mindset of the average California Democrat, this actually might be good for her re-election prospects.

as a native #Failifornian conservative, registered “Independent” because the state GOPe is set on “Fail”, i’m voting for De Leon.

why?

because Fineswine is an evil fascist with lots of seniority.

DeLeon is also just as evil, just as dumb, but with ZERO seniority, and, as such, along with Kamala-toe, won’t be able to get anything dome, other than grandstanding, running their mouth, and voting the way Fineswine & Boxer shorts would have anyway.

it’s a win for #Failifornia AND the nation.

and it’s also the same reason conservatives should have voted for Villarboboso in the governor’s race, instead of a more preferred candidate with ZERO chance of winning in November.

vote with your brain, not your heart: always make sure there’s a less dangerous evil to choose, that can actually win.

“I dread what is likely to follow when she finally leaves office.”

Ain’t it sad when you “dread” what follows…

She’s always been corrupt and full of crap.

Now, she enabled espionage. (Come on – nobody is that dumb, not even wasserman schultz.)

“He was forced to retire 5 years ago…”

Wait, WHAT??? He was a SPY and was not FIRED? I don’t care that he was unable to pass on any information of substance; why was a SPY not fired? Holy cow. I assume this means that we are paying his retirement income and benefits. I have no words. Well, I have words, but they are not repeatable.

Given how many Democrats are getting caught with spies working for them it does make me wonder whether they really didn’t know they were spies.
