yet another case of double standards, the media has all but
ignored a scandal surrounding longtime Democrat Senator from
California, Dianne Feinstein. New reports are revealing that
Feinstein had unknowingly let a Chinese spy infiltrate her office,
working for her as her personal driver for twenty years. But there
hasn’t been one mention on television of the story from CNN,
MSNBC, ABC, CBS or NBC, despite the media’s supposed “concern”
over foreign nationals hacking our democracy.
first broke the story in an expose about spies in the Silicon
Valley, July 27. Since then, The
San Francisco Chronicle and Fox News have
picked up the story, but it has yet to be covered by any network
other than Fox.
to that Politico report:
According to four
former intelligence officials, in the 2000s, a staffer in
Senator Dianne Feinstein’s San Francisco field office was
reporting back to the MSS (added
for clarity: China’s Ministry of State Security).
While this person, who was a liaison to the local Chinese
community, was fired, charges were never filed against him. (One
former official reasoned this was because the staffer was
providing political intelligence and not classified
information—making prosecution far more difficult.) The
suspected informant was “run” by officials based at China’s San
Francisco Consulate, said another former intelligence official.
The spy’s handler “probably got an award back in China” for his
work, noted this former official, dryly.
did the FBI fail to press charges against this person, but
Feinstein quietly fired the staffer, without letting the rest of
her office know the reason.
the fact that Feinstein is a prominent politician who has been a
Democrat fixture in the liberal state since the ‘70s, she was the
chair of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, of all
things from 2009-2015, so the media should have more than a little
concern about her office being targeted by a foreign government.
Yet the liberal media has chosen to conveniently ignore her
scandal, and instead hyped the FBI arrest of Republican Rep. Chris
Collins, for insider trading yesterday.
of that intelligence committee, Feinstein had access to classified
information that would be “extremely valuable to the Chinese
government,” according to reports. While the FBI quietly informed
Feinstein of the spy, they’ve treated former Trump campaign aides
linked to Russian nationals much differently, and their cases have
made the national spotlight on a near daily basis in the media.
Senator Lindsey Graham noted this discrepancy on Fox News, August
Look at what they
did with the Clinton email investigation. The FBI agent in
charge of the Clinton email investigation hated Trump like
Clinton, nothing’s happened. The FISA warrant came from a
document prepared by somebody on the democratic party's payroll
and he feels like there is a double standard here. One of the
things that we didn't talk about, I didn’t know about it until
yesterday, apparently about five years ago the FBI told Dianne
Feinstein that one of her employees may be an agent of the
Chinese government and that was the right thing to do. And she
fired him. We are going to send a letter to Director Wray next
week and ask him, what is the policy? Why didn't
you tell President Trump that you had concerns about Carter
Page? Is there a double standard here? If
this is a counterintelligence investigation not a criminal
investigation, the FBI should have told President Trump that
they had concerns about Papadopoulos and Paige. Why didn't
they do for Trump what they did for Feinstein?
Fox News, this story has been ignored by the major networks, CNN
and MSNBC, who are more than concerned at about any update in the
Russia investigation and the arrest of Rep. Chris Collins.

different the media covers scandals when
it comes to the politician’s political affiliation.
