An interesting DC storyline surrounding Senate Judiciary Vice-Chairwoman Dianne Feinstein, and the lack of support for her based on party backlash, highlights an interesting shift in 2016 that few paid attention to. First, the current story:
(Via CNN) – Senate Democratic leaders on Tuesday pointedly refused to say if they supported California Sen. Dianne Feinstein staying in her post as the top Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee, sidestepping questions about the veteran party elder after she praised Republicans’ handling of the confirmation proceedings for Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett.
[…] “I’ve had a long and serious talk with Sen. Feinstein,” Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer told reporters when asked if he was looking to make changes atop the powerful committee. “That’s all I’m going to say about it right now.” (read more)
2020 Democrats are not happy with Senator Feinstein for not pushing the party narrative to seek and destroy SCOTUS nominee, Judge Amy Coney Barrett. This helps highlight the 2016 motive to remove Feinstein from the vice-chair of the Senate Intelligence Committee.
Senator Feinstein was the vice-chair of the SSCI during the 2016 operation to stop Trump & then frame the “insurance policy” against the incoming president-elect administration.
However, in order for the SSCI, the centerpiece for the legislative coup, to be successfully weaponized against President Trump in 2017, senate leadership knew they needed a different person, a more reliable partisan willing to usurp the administration; and that is why Feinstein was told to abdicate her position and was replaced by Senator Mark Warner.
That is why less than a month after the inauguration of President Trump, the new vice-chair of the senate intel committee was conspiring with political entities inside and outside government to carry out the plan.https://www.scribd.com/embeds/371101285/content?start_page=1&view_mode&access_key=key-pMEa6x5I0qt6SU7fudq7View this document on Scribd
Senator Mark Warner immediately went to work on the effort to remove President Trump by working with Dan Jones (Fusion-GPS) and Chris Steele via Adam Waldman. A few months later that same plan was enhanced with the addition of the Weissmann/Mueller special counsel. Warner was then working with the SCO (inside DOJ) and the team of Jones, Glenn Simpson, Adam Waldman and others outside government.
Part of that original plan included the distribution of the FISA warrant to reinforce an FBI Trump-Russia narrative against the Trump administration. Building validity for that narrative is why Vice-Chairman Mark Warner instructed SSCI Security Director James Wolfe to leak the Carter Page FISA application on March 17, 2017, to media.
