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)

            I have to wholeheartedly disagree with you…frankendifi bears a very strong resemblance to Herman Munster these days, but Fred Gwynne carried the image a LOT better…LOL

            I will however say that at least she has the common sense to wear a support bra, unlike botox nan neuroses whose view from the side always shows her b00bs hanging down to her navel.

                Good grief.

                I will acknowledge that DiFi is not unattractive for a woman her age, and was by many people’s standards quite attractive many years ago.

                But RBG?? You must be joking.

                Regardless, the point is that DiFi left the Senate before it adjourned. Left a Senate impeachment “trial.”

                And one of the motives for this fraudulent, unconstitutional impeachment is to try to prevent Trump from appointing RBG’s successor, not to mention his draining of the Swamp, starting with those most vociferously opposing his America First agenda.

                  This is impressively off-topic, but here’s my last comment on the subject.

                  RBG, in photos from her 30’s as an attorney, looks quite good. Remember also that people were generally fitter and slimmer in her generation than today when inferring from the upper body shots what the rest of her might have looked like. High intelligence and energy are to some extent a measure of general health and “good genes” and this does help a bit with things like looks and height and (especially) keeping the looks and health as one ages. I’d say RBG and DiFi even moreso were quite lucky in the genes department.

                Other 86 year old women that I know are holding up much better in the looks department than either frankendifi or nan neuroses, and I know several. While nan could never have been considered a looker, I do agree that a very long time ago difi was much better looking.

                Perhaps it is due to the actions they take in life eventually reflecting in their outward appearance, similar to the story line in the Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde, but neither of them have a painting to hide the blemishes of their character flaws.

            Personally I think the taxpayers should sue them for breach of contract—taking money under false pretenses. We used to pay Congressmen for working for the people Not for the party. Times have changed. Also, what’s up with usually working only 3 days a week? I won’t have a problem with so many two week vacays if the work 6 days a week, 8 hours a day. That would allow them two weeks off every quarter. Holidays must be included in that vacation time not in addition to.
            How many hard working Americans put in 40+ hour weeks only to make under $50,000? How many hard working Americans have to take on a second job? Why should Congressmen make triple the money for working barely 1/3 of the hours? Times should be a changing!

            • They were paid $50/annum in 1789.
              Adjusted for inflation that is $1460.08 in today’s dollars. Seems fair to me.

              https://www.officialdata.org/us/inflation/1789?amount=50

              U.S. Inflation Rate, $50 in 1789 to 2020

              According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics consumer price index, today’s prices in 2020 are 2,820.16% higher than average prices since 1789. The U.S. dollar experienced an average inflation rate of 1.47% per year during this period, meaning the real value of a dollar decreased.

              In other words, $50 in 1789 is equivalent in purchasing power to about $1,460.08 in 2020, a difference of $1,410.08 over 231 years.

              The 1789 inflation rate was -1.12%. The current inflation rate (2019 to 2020) is now 2.29%. If this number holds, $50 today will be equivalent in buying power to $51.14 next year. The current inflation rate page gives more detail on the latest official inflation rates.

Think about it for a moment. On CNN/ MSLSD/ ETC, they have no dissenting voices. All left all day long. Their ratings suck. Fox bills itself as fair and balanced. It helps for our conservative giants to have a foil to push back on. That foil is Juan, Chrissy, and used to be Shep. We need the whiny idiots to keep pushing the rating up. Just my thought.

      Yeah, ordinarily once a person gets into their 80s or so, I’d never say anything about them having far less energy and stamina than they used to. Taking a break (even a nap) now and then is fine. Even going a whole day not doing much of anything is fine, even if they’re otherwise in decent health. And NEVER should someone that age need to “work” unless they just really enjoy it and are still able. Nothing makes me sadder than to see a really old person trying to work a job because they NEED to. Nope, shouldn’t happen.

      HOWEVER, some of these people in politics are doing it out of pure lust for power. Even if their continued “service” is no longer up to the quality it once was, and isn’t helping their constituents… even then, they just keep right on, almost out of spite. So in that case, nope… I don’t have much sympathy no matter their age.

    It is notable that throughout these years of the “Trump-Russia” scam, Senate Democrats (except for Schumer and Warner) have largely averted becoming directly embroiled in this long-running hoax first invented by their former Presidential candidate.

    Sleepy, Hungry, Bored: Senators Pay for Late Night at Impeachment Trial Open

    …Senator Rand Paul glued his eyes on a crossword puzzle hidden under his desk during opening arguments from Schiff, the House Intelligence chairman from California. Senator Bernie Sanders could be seen nodding off, slouched deep in his wooden desk with his chin bobbing on his chest.

    …Clocking in at more than two and a half hours, Schiff’s opening argument left dozens of empty chairs on the Senate floor as Republicans – and a few sleepy Democrats – left the room to converse in the halls or grab a snack.

    When the California Democrat said, “Now let me turn to the second article of impeachment,” McConnell crumpled in his chair.

    “The end is in sight,” Schiff assured, as exasperation boiled on the Republican side of the chamber and more senators trickled out.

    Even Democrats strongly backing impeachment drifted to the back of the room to stretch their legs as Schiff’s opening drew to a close. Booker, towering at 6 feet 2 inches, leaned up against a marble pillar at the back end of the room, still focused on Schiff’s remarks.

    Absent from the room for more than 30 minutes, Sanders and Senator Amy Klobuchar — both pulled from the 2020 campaign trail to judge the impeachment case — cruised back in together to take their seats as Schiff concluded by urging senators to preserve the republic with a fair trial.

    The AP reported Wednesday night on the boring trial:

    “Many senators _ of both parties _ have walked out at different times during the proceedings…and taken their time returning to the chamber”

      I’m not in the mood to research it right now, but I wonder if anything like this happened during the Clinton “trial”.

      The Senate should vote to send articles of impeachment back over to the House so they can do their job and complete their investigation.

      By their own admission (demanding additional information and witnesses) the House clearly, did not investigate this thoroughly. I think the entire Senate is pissed that the completion in falling into their laps. Not happy.

      By sending it back they are saying, (1) you guys really screwed this up. (2) the Senate really really cares what these additional witnesses have to say (choke, choke) but it isn’t our job. (3) finish it and we’ll take another look at it.

      Boy, would that frazzle Nancy.

      I would love it if the President’s team hired a firebrand preacher who speaks at volume 11 give their rebuttal. Let him wave the constitution around like a bible and constantly ask the well, “Can I have an AMEN?”.

    So….let’s see….

    Her driver was a Chinese spy…
    i
    She abandoned her chair on the Gang of Eight committee most likely due to the ultimate stupidity if an attempted coup against the President

    She lost all of her “Slush” money from China

    Even though she is about “two days older than dirt”, she has survived in the Senate using “intelligent corruption” and is attempting to save herself from the fiasco being played out in the face of the American public.

    In other words she is trying to save her ass by the Sgt. Schultz excuse.

    “I know nothing”….and “My dog ate my paycheck”….but she is hip deep in all of this and will go down with the test of em…

    Reminds me of the Linda Ronstadt song…..”It’s Too Late”

    Well….Bye..

    A bunch of weasel-words cleverly stitched together to avoid mentioning the President’s #1 concern with Ukraine corruption: namely, the effort to bring down his 2016 campaign and the money behind it. The Bidens were just collateral damage.

    What was $4 million in State Department money used for? Why were we paying “embeds” in the Ukraine Prosecutor General’s office after Shokin was fired? What third-party dirt was being dug up on Manafort with U.S. dollars?

    Let’s see what the defense team brings out.

    the book says she’s got to be there. If someone walked out on one of her hearings she’d be climbing the walls. Sent Sgt at Arms to her residence and have him return with her over his shoulder, in her pjs, to sit out the balance of the night.

    Once the President’s team gets the floor, I’d work in a reference to this as an example of how weak the case is, and the real disinterest on the other side of the aisle to pay attention and make a judgement based on fact, not political expediency.

    Speaker McConnell should propose an amendment to the rules – any Senator who is not present for the entire debacle forfeits his/her right to vote. Only fair, jurors in a civil trial don’t get to just get up and walk out…
