    I called Feinstein's office because I'm a constituent who wanted to hear what they had to say. I reported what they said because I thought it would be of general interest. If they had said they stand by the quote I would have reported that as well as a matter of general interest. If they had said she will put out a clarifying statement later today I would have reported that as a matter of general interest etc.

    I just called her office and here is what I was told.

    The senator was "misquoted" in that article.
    The Senator has always and continues to support Pelosi on her handling of impeachment.
    An impeachment trial must include all relevant witnesses and documents.

    Make of that what you will.
    If you think I called your source into question then quote me, exactly, where I did that.

    I think it's his attempt at mimicking firstfloor's wit, but he's not nearly as clever a wordsmith.

    Democrats got cowtowed into bowing to Pelosi's insanity, more like.

    Well yeah, that's the point, OBP. You said "more accurately, she got the idea from watching John Dean on CNN" but you simply repeated what the article said which was that "she got the idea from watching John Dean on CNN." Just sayin!

    Even Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., called out Pelosi for the delay.
    “The longer it goes on, the less urgent it becomes,” Feinstein told Politico. “So if it’s serious and urgent, send them over. If it isn’t, don’t send it over.”

    What I make of it is the Democrats didn't want their laundry aired, Feinstein got push back and her office is attempting a walk back. But if it were a misquote, why aren't they confronting Politico? Politico is decent about its retractions - and likely would retract a misquote. But here's the update info from the article:

    Source as above


    Nothing since 12:34 pm PST (3:34 pm EST). It's been nearly 24 hours but no update from Politico to correct the misquote? Is Politico suddenly unwilling to correct its errors - or is Feinstein's office so negligent as to not report it?

    Or did they just lie?

    It was meant as a general reply. I edited my post to remove my quoting of you.
