Ranking Democrat Senator Dianne Feinstein Left Senate During Schiff Testimony – Said "Goodnight" and Went Home…

Many people are becoming aware the Senate impeachment trial is an exercise in politics, nothing more.  The votes are already decided; the trial is simply a pantomime.
To highlight the point, Democrat Senator Dianne Feinstein, the ranking member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, simply walked out during the trial when Adam Schiff was testifying; said “goodnight” and just went home.
Washington Post congressional reporter Paul Kane noted:


(WaPo) Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) walked out of the Senate chamber, said “good night” to two reporters standing nearby, and left the Capitol. Senators are expected to stay in the chamber for the entirety of the arguments. (link)

    Might be worth someone trying by getting up from a trial and claiming the Feinstein rule!
    What did CNN and MSNBC think of Schiff’s relentless babbling:
    “Very powerful and forceful speech”. on the Safari-Simpson scale, it was about an F negative .01 or a negative .01 on the Richter scale
    “One of the great performances”. yes indeed, may get an Academy Award for Best Actor in a fictional performance
    “Opened the Senate trial in dramatic fashion”. a real drama queen performance
    “Rising to the level of Senatorial eloquence”. more like falling to the level of House of Pelosi incompetence
    “Remarkably disciplined laying out of the circumstances”. remarkably disciplined lying about the circumstances”
    “The way he rolled through the facts and the historical concepts of the case”.
    the way he rolled over the facts rewriting history just as he did with his version of the call transcript
    8 down, 16 to go. Wonder who’s keeping the count of sleeping Senators, Senators smuggling in comic books or puzzle books, Senators leaving for potty breaks as well as the length of time it takes, best snorers, how may drool, I’m open to other categories!

    It’s not like she hasn’t already made up her mind on how she will vote.

    • Tl Howard says:

      She broke the rules and so ought not be able to vote, wouldn’t you say?

      • MD says:

        I thought the senators were basically the jurors in this case. What would happen to a juror in a criminal court case who decided to get up and leave during it. They would be removed and possibly face punishment from the judge. Di Fi should be barred from voting on anything with regard to impeachment.

    • Aeyrie says:

      Awww, give my commie senator a break, Treepers. Maybe she is finally getting it through her thick criminal skull that she really does need to go home and start preparing for jail. Heaven knows I’ve helpfully sent her enough flyers on how to!

  3. Bruce_Dern's_Finger says:

    How do you say “goodnight” in Wu, Hunanese, Jiangxinese, Hakka, Yue, Ping, Shaojiang, Min, Fuzhounese, and Mandarin?

  4. nerveman says:

    Even the headlines of clickbait articles are impossible to make enticing. You can’t even make an interesting edited video clip of this snoozefest.

  5. Erick says:

    What a DISGRACE to the AMERICAN People, and The Senate!
    How do you face AMERICA after this, and be taken Serious?
    A great example is unfolding before our demi-Congress are idiot’s and have to fabricate truths..and idiot’s listen to their lies.

  6. nyckers says:

    Schiff thinks he is AUDITIONING for a engage seat. he wants to move up to the big chamber. No it a chance. He is the least compelling of the 52 OTHER reps from California. After this shitshow, why would anyone in the Senate show that narcissistic brainless dipshit any respect? He made them sit there for five hours and listen to his drivel – over and over and over and over.
    Even my liberal CA friends hate Schiff now. As much or even more than Trump.

    • bill says:

      I’m sorry. I strongly disagree. Zoe Lofgren one of the other House Managers presenting (and sadly my Rep from the Silicon Valley) is the least compelling of CA’s reps…. Sadly only followed by ‘full of Schiff’
      Sadly you get treated to both of these Clowns at the same show.

    • dottygal says:

      I read a comment on FB from a lilberal friend who thinks Schiff did a great job! I wanted to throw up – just like every time I hear his nauseating voice. Same goes for Schumer and Nadler: I cannot stomach them.

  7. Harvey Lipschitz says:

    Her assistant wrote Schiffs’s rant ???
    Did she dictate it?

  8. TheWanderingStar says:

    Mitch needs to start today’s proceedings with a stern reminder that ALL Senators (so called) should remain for the entire session.

    • David Mitchell says:

      Well, if I were there I’d do that and then propose an amendment to the rules that anyone who leaves early forfeits his/her vote. I’d call out Feinstein by name too.
      Dave “Mitch” Mitchell

  9. Rich Gorman says:

    Elite privilege ! No rules bind them . No laws bind them . No morals bind them. No ethics bind them . Madame Queen Feinstein , have you no sense of decency ?

  10. CharterOakie says:

    Goodnight, DiFi!

  11. Rj says:

    well she plays by her own rules and is allowed to get away with employing a Chinese communist spy for over 20 yrs, what stinking rules ?

  12. namberak says:

    She’s 86 years old. She was already up past her bedtime, cut her some slack!

  13. aarmad says:

    Look for more Senators to leave. They know that adam will use every second of allotted time. He has doubled down in lies already. He is fabricating facts. It is a disgrace that he can stand up their and be a yuge liar!!!

  14. Sherri Young says:

    Wrong link. Pardon me. However much better than more Schiff — on multiple levels.

  15. Bulldog84 says:

    Oh my freaking goodness — can anyone blame the old girl for skedaddling? Bless her heart for staying as long as she did.
    As a trained lawyer, the spectacle of the dem managers is too frustrating to watch, even ignoring the lack of substantive content and repetition of irrelevant details. What I see is poorly trained monkeys literally reading from scripts that they not only did not prepare, but that they have not adequately reviewed or rehearsed. You cannot perpetrate this type of torture on an audience of senators (or anyone, for that matter) and expect to keep their interest for weeks on end.
    For this reason, I suspect this will end quickly with a summary acquittal.

  16. Kevin O'Shea says:

    she signed an oath !

  17. Bob says:

    Since she will vote to convict no matter what, is there any real reason for her to stay and listen?

    • Sherri Young says:

      She is a member of the party that has made impeachment their mission. She and Chuck Schumer work together. She might have been able to prevent this toxic abomination. It is not too much to require her to sit in her chair and listen to every word.

      • Tl Howard says:

        She broke the rules and so ought not be able to vote, wouldn’t you say?

        • Sherri Young says:

          Rather than take away her vote, use this to discredit Schiff and what he was spouting. Although I agree on some level, disqualifying her ability to vote might give Romney and Collins excuses to cast sympathy votes. Use this episode to say that Schiff’s rotten presentation and rotten case were so bad that even a staunch senior Dimm senator could no longer stay to listen for the final hour.
          DiFi may get a wrist slap. The bloggers and meme meisters should turn it into a black eye for Schiff.

  18. willthesuevi says:

    When you lose someone in your own party of Senator Feinstein’s stature and purpose, you are losing everyone.
    She knows this is a lost cause and can do absolutely nothing to reverse the damage. Pelosi has screwed DiFi to the floor. No moves left.
    I would pay good money to be a fly on the wall in the Democrat back rooms right now.
    I am not saying this is won, but it is one step closer.

  19. Zorro says:

    DiFiChiSpi is just keeping the seat warm for future Senate candidate Adam Schiff. He is now auditioning in front of that body.

    • Bulldog84 says:

      He’s throwing himself on that burning pile of excrement for some reason, and he’s such a creepy leaking liar you know his motives aren’t pure. I suspect he wants the speakership gig, and God help us.

      • warrprin1 says:

        IIRC it was proposed on this site a number of weeks ago that Schiffless is Nan’s pick for next Dem SotH. ~ But they gotta win the House Majority back first. 😂

    • Sherri Young says:

      The senators in that room may wish to mobilize for Schiff’s opponent if he dares run for the senate. At this point, his best hope for moving to the upper body for even a little bit would be if DiFi were to become unable to continue in office and Gavin Newsom could appoint Schiff to her seat for the remainder of the term.

  20. upstate909 says:

    Maybe Nancy received a strongly worded phone call last night.

  21. hokkoda says:

    Interesting choice of timing to walk out on your own guy…
    …I wonder if she plans to vote “not guilty” as well…
    She is not a stupid person. Schiff is an ignorant buffoon who is mentally unstable. Kinda makes you wonder if there’s not a message in her choice of exit timing.

    • Battleship Wisconsin says:

      “Schiff is an ignorant buffoon who is mentally unstable.”
      No, Adam Schiff is not an ignorant buffoon, nor is he mentally unstable. He is an ambitious, highly calculating opportunist who sees his participation in the House impeachment and Senate trial of Donald Trump as his ticket to gaining more power and influence in the US Congress and among his cohorts in the Democratic Party in general.
      Schiff knows he cannot be defeated in his own House district and so he has nothing to lose by pushing the envelope to the bleeding edge and beyond in attempting to remove Donald Trump from office.

      • hokkoda says:

        No, he is a sociopath. You can see it in his eyes, the breathless ease with which he lies to your face, gets caught, and denies lying while fabricating an implausible excuse. A good sociopath can easily con people into going along with them.
        Our Government is increasingly populated with sociopaths. Adam Schiff is one of the more visible ones.

        • Battleship Wisconsin says:

          Adam Schiff is only a partial sociopath. He doesn’t possess the full list of clinical traits that describe a total sociopath. Schiff does exhibit those sociopathic traits which are most common among professional politicians:
          – Glibness and superficial charm
          – Manipulative and cunning
          – Never recognize the rights of others
          – See his self-serving behaviors as permissible
          – Grandiose sense of self
          – Pathological lying
          – Lack of remorse, shame or guilt
          Nothing is included in this partial list of sociopathic traits which precludes Adam Schiff from also being an ambitious, highly calculating, highly intelligent opportunist who sees his participation in the House impeachment and Senate trial of Donald Trump as his ticket to gaining more power and influence in the US Congress and among his cohorts in the Democratic Party in general.

    • Scott Miller says:

      Perhaps she got wind of the *alleged* Buck/Schiff/MethDen photo and saw a smart exit; always self before party.

  22. T2020 says:

    That was a “goodnight” spank.

  23. James W Crawford says:

    Feinstein desperately needed to change her Depends.

  24. Don says:

    Jeepers people…. she’s 86 years old ! I get she the issues and all….and we all know its a farce and so does she… you all had grandmothers….. yikes – a tough crowd…..
    THIS really says more about what’s really going on with this futile exercise than anything….
    Not for nothing… maybe its time to begin MANDATORY retirement age legislation more than anything…. (especially as it appears that Term Limits legislation will never be allowed to see the light of day to put an end to the CAREER politician…and the corruption it invites)

    • warrprin1 says:

      Don, respectfully to you and everyone here…. Getting old is a stark reality of life. Each of us does so on our own bio calendar. But enough is enough at Sen. Feinstein’s age. Each of us needs to recognize when it’s time to leave the stage. This individual, who has become so wealthy and influential, at taxpayer expense, demonstrates an unwillingness, or an inability, to recognize that her sun is setting low on the horizon.
      The jokes that are posted here reflect the comic relief we all need in order to keep slogging through the destructive mayhem served us by the corrupt Democrat Party leadership – which the longtime Senator DIFi from sad, filthy San Francisco, CA, has long championed.

  25. Cocoon says:

    She did what 99 others wanted to do.
    Now let’s see if anyone attacks her for walking out!

  26. Trialdog says:

    None of the smarts or other gifted lawyers asked my opinion on witnesses but I have one, so listen up.
    The Constitution says the House has the sole power to issue articles of impeachment. This has been done after gathering evidence. The articles issued have been sent to the Senate for trial.
    Now, there’s talk of witnesses at the trial. The witnesses they want to call are fact witnesses the House has not heard from. If there are new facts provided that the House has not considered when issuing the articles, the new facts have to go back to the House so the House can vote on whether impeachment articles stand. Then, if so, the articles would have to go back to the Senate for trial.
    If not done this way, the Senate could convict on new grounds for impeachment the House has not voted on. Since the House has sole power, the Senate can’t co-opt that power to look for additional grounds to impeach then convict.

    • Pew-Anon says:

      IMO, the House would weasel out of that argument by claiming all the proposed Senate subpoenas were originally issued by the House pursuant to their impeachment investigation, but failed because of “obstruction”. They present nothing new to the articles. Of course we all understand the defect in the obstruction claim, hence the defective need for Senate subpoenas.

  27. jello333 says:

    You guys know me, and how much I hate political correctness, so hopefully I’ll get the benefit of the doubt in this comment:
    I kinda wish we’d cut it out with the “Depends” jokes. I mean, I’m sure many of us have loved ones who are now to the point in life where they’re now reliant on stuff like that. Could be due to advanced age, or could be something else; could even be a younger person. And from my experience, it does NOT make them feel good… some literally become quite depressed. So anyway, yeah… I think you guys get my drift.

    • TreeClimber says:

      Stroke. Postpartum issues. Menstrual issues. Pregnancy issues. Those are just the ones I can think of off the top of my head. It feels shameful.
      I agree. Everyone here is always saying “we’re better than they are” but I don’t always see it.

    • YY4U says:

      I agree jello333. I’d add that if we lie long enough, we’re all gonna be “there”.

  28. YY4U says:

    Things I’m tired of or bored with:
    Greta Thuneberg
    Climate change. It’s cold here this week. Was hot here last July. Climate change!
    Propaganda ads on TV trying to convince me all burglars are white guys in hoodies
    Propaganda movies trying to convince me that a 98 pound lady can beat up a 200 lb guy
    Lefty Scriptwriters slipping “the Liberal Tell” in every movie or TV show. (Blue Bloods is the latest)
    The media
    Impeachment because you know if POTUS wins in 2020 the Democrats aren’t going to accept THAT election either

    • warrprin1 says:

      YY4U, taking back the majority in the House, and holding it in the Senate will stop the further efforts to re-impeach PDJT. The Dem clowns in the Legislative Branch would love nothing more than to go for a 2nd impeachment – because that would be a historical marker.
      Everyone VOTE, and VOTE GOP across the board, even if you have to hold your nose: in 2020 AND in 2022. If the elected GOPers attempt to go off our Reservation, we stop all small donor $$$ contributions and we’ll have time to identify and run better candidates.
      Never give up. Just like PDJT – never give up.

      • jello333 says:

        Agree. Before Trump, I had never voted for a Republican at any level. But now I can say I’ll never again vote for a Dem… well, not unless they totally repudiate their own party, and stick up for Trump (about a thousand to one shot of course 😏 )

  29. Nowut Ameen says:

    Feinstein was speaking prophetically.

  30. philip l horner says:

    Arguably an OLD bat.

  31. ed357 says:

    I thought the rule in the Senate…
    Was that attendance was mandatory……
    Put her a$$ in cuffs/chains and drag here a$$ back in there….
    Just another example of Orwellian behavior……”Animal Farm” style.

  32. Christine Barry says:

    Anything that comes out of Adam Schiff’s mouth is an outright lie! He wouldn’t know the truth if it slapped him in the face! He is a pathological liar and I don’t know why the Senate allows him to perpetrate these lies about the Commander in Chief of the United States! This is worse than the KAVANAUGH hearings! He should have his top secret clearance removed and he should be removed from office for what he and his corrupt mob has done to our duly elected President! It’s disgraceful! It’s treasonous and these evil demons answer to no one! They abuse their power, make up their own laws, give themselves raises whenever they want, only work (if you can call it that) 100 days out of the year! (are you kidding me)! They should all be impeached for treason and go to GITMO! No I’m not kidding! We the people are SICK OF THE LIES AND CORRUPTION IN OUR GOVERNMENT! We’re paying their salaries and they’re spending money lol drunk sailors, while I’m living hand to mouth on $1281/month on Social Security and get a $7.05 cola this year when they want to do away with Social Security and give all the illegals welfare and insurance!! Ask me if I’m pissed? I’d like to see them live on $1281/month!
    They better hope to God a Democrat doesn’t get in in November, because they will get treated worse than TRUMP! In fact, Trump deserves a second term for what these assholes did to him and get away with it! He can’t even sue them because they have immunity!! How convenient!! All the cards are in their favor, because they write all the rules, is that the way it goes? Seems a little one sided to me.
    There better be some changes made pretty quickly, because the people are getting restless and they’re starting to circle the wagons.
    If this doesn’t get FIXED, somebody’s gonna have their hands full and it isn’t gonna be me.
