DiFi and the amazing persuasive powers of the head cold

Tuesday, Senator Dianne Feinstein unilaterally released the closed-session transcripts with Fusion GPS founder Glenn Simpson in what can only be described as a stunning breach of protocol.

Within 24 hours of this brazen action, DiFi found herself in the unenviable position of having to back-peddle.

And while I enjoy watching Democrats get caught in their own short-sighted stupidity, it’s actually been rather painful watching DiFi twist herself into knots over it.

When called to explain why she defied Chuck Grassley and released these transcripts without his knowledge, DiFi first claimed that she was “pressured.”

She was pressured? Who the hell pressured her?

Well, according to DiFi, nobody.

You know, using the rubric established in the news media, I think we need to seriously question DiFi’s mental state.

Because stating “I just got pressured” and then following up by saying, “I wasn’t pressured” is a clear sign something is off.

Maybe we should ask Dr. Wackadoodle of Yale University what she thinks.

But no sooner does DiFi claim she was pressured and not pressured, she came up with another excuse.

She had a bad cold.

Ah, yes. The amazing persuasive powers of the head cold.

From the Daily Caller

“The one regret I have is that I should have spoke with Senator Grassley before,” she told NBC News. “And I don’t make an excuse but I’ve had a bad cold and maybe that slowed down my mental facilities [sic] a little bit.”


So maybe when DiFi said she was pressured, she meant sinus pressure.

Let’s be honest. Feinstein screwed up.

If she thought this would breathe new life into RussiaGate, boy she was wrong.

Sean Davis from the Federalist actually read through every page of the testimony DiFi released.

And I found his observations very helpful.

I’m betting that if releasing the testimony from Glenn Simpson had helped to further the Democrats’ narrative, DiFi wouldn’t be back-peddling the way she is.

But it isn’t helping them.

In fact, Mollie Hemingway – who likewise read through the testimony — provides an excellent breakdown of why this transcript is devastating to the Anti-Trump RussiaGate narrative.

It’s well worth reading Hemingway’s article. So definitely find the time to do that.

Any old how.

You have to hand it to DiFi. Blaming her lack of judgment on a bad cold is certainly imaginative.

It’s like the Twinkie Defense. Only with more mucus.

My guess is, her initial response was probably more accurate — specifically that DiFi was pressured.

But by whom?

Well, Sean Davis has one suggestion. And I think he might be on to something:

Finally, on a side note. Once again, I’m going to encourage you to follow the excellent work Sundance is doing over at the Conservative Treehouse.

It’s clear the entire operation to undermine the duly elected President of the United States is falling apart at the seams. And more importantly, the cast of characters involved are starting to panic.

And I guess we can thank DiFi for inadvertently helping the narrative unravel.

    Feinstein always does stupid crap then back peddles. She has a history of this.

    I had to laugh at the Twinkie Defense reference since that defense launched her to power.

    If a head cold is limiting DiFi’s mental abilities, she should contact Guinness about the world’s longest headcold!
