A Chinese spy worked for Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) for almost 20 years, KPIX in San Francisco reported on Wednesday.
The shocking revelation is of significant relevance to the U.S. Senate race in Tennessee between Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN-07), the Republican nominee, and former Gov. Phil Bredesen, the Democrat nominee, Tennessee Star Political Editor Steve Gill says.
“If Phil Bredesen is elected to the United States Senate and Democrats win the Senate Majority, then Chuck Schumer becomes the Majority Leader and Dianne Feinstein likely becomes the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee,” he notes.
“Conservative judge and Justice nominees won’t only be denied a fair confirmation fair they will be delayed or blocked from getting a vote. Tennessee voters need to remember that Feinstein attacked Federal Court of Appeals nominee, and possible future Trump Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett, for her Catholic faith. A vote for Bredesen empowers this sort of disposable religious bigotry,” Gill points out.
KPIX provided these details of the Chinese spy’s infiltration of Feinstein’s inner circle:
New details emerged Wednesday about how a mole for the government of communist China managed to stay by Senator Dianne Feinstein’s side for nearly 20 years.
It happened five years ago, but additional information is just surfacing about how the Bay Area senator’s office was infiltrated by a Chinese spy. . .
Now, all 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.
The 85-year old Feinstein faces State Senator Kevin de Leon, also a Democrat, in the November general election.
