Kirsters Baish| Last week, it came out that Democratic California Senator Dianne Feinstein employed a driver for two decades… and that driver was also a Chinese spy. This information was discovered five years ago by the FBI, but it was never released to the public until the San Fransisco Chronicle and Politico revealed this information. There are now more questions about the spy and Senator Feinstein’s relations to China.
The Chinese driver was reported to have had also represented Feinstein at numerous functions. He also served as a liaison to the Chinese. While the FBI had discovered this information five years ago, the driver was able to retire and the information was never publicized. No arrest was ever made. Staff was neither informed nor questioned about the Chinese spy by Feinstein or the FBI.
Why was this spy never charged? He passed information to the Chinese. The mainstream media is silent.
People are now questioning just how close Senator Feinstein is to the Chinese.
The Daily Wire reports that on September 24, 2015, Republican Texas Senator Ted Cruz introduced legislation which would change the name of the street located across from Red China’s Embassy. The street was to be renamed after pro-democracy activist Liu Xiaobo.
Cruz stated, “This would be the street sign that the Chinese Ambassador would look at each day. This would be the address that every piece of correspondence going into the embassy and coming out of the embassy would have written on it… the PRC officials will be forced to recognize the bravery of Dr. Liu and to acknowledge it dozens of times a day- day after day after day.”
Cruz wasn’t happy to find that Senator Feinstein took the floor in objection. She stated, “I can only infer that it has political implications, because the President of China is due to arrive here tomorrow and, therefore, this would be passed today, moved out of committee without a vote in front of the Senate. I don’t think that is the way we should do business in this Senate. Maybe people don’t believe diplomacy makes a difference, but I do.”
Cruz was clearly unhappy with her answer. He came back onto the Senate Floor. He stated, “The presence of President Xi in this country is precisely the reason that we should stand in unanimity in support of human rights. Dr. Liu is in a Chinese prison, and the Senior Senator from California is standing and objecting to recognizing this Nobel Laureate’s bravery, is standing and objecting because presumably it would embarrass his communist captors. I, for one, think as Americans we should not be troubled by embarrassing communist oppressors.”
No one can object to that and make sense.
Harry Wu spent 19 years with the Chinese Gulag, making his life all about exposing the Communists’ human rights offenses. In 2001, he stated:
“Congress gave me nice support – Senators Helms and Paul Wellstone of Minnesota. When I met Senator Wellstone, he said, ‘Harry, I don’t need a brief – just tell me what you want me to do.’ But they were only some of the Senators. Others took a stand for Communist China based on family or business interests. For example, Senator Dianne Feinstein, her husband is a board member of Cosco [the PLA’s Chinese Overseas Shipping Corporation] and he has other investments in China. You see, this is the kind of person [Feinstein] who is never interested in my work.”

In 2010, Jens Kastler wrote this for the Asia Times:
NO US POLITICIAN IS BELIEVED TO ENJOY TIES TO CHINA’S PREVIOUS AND PRESENT-DAY LEADERSHIPS AS CLOSE AS FEINSTEIN. DURING 30 YEARS OF FREQUENT VISITS TO BEIJING, FEINSTEIN DEVELOPED FRIENDSHIPS WITH CHINESE OFFICIALS AS HIGH-RANKING AS FORMER PRESIDENT JIANG ZEMIN, FORMER PREMIER ZHU RONGJI AND CHONGQING PARTY SECRETARY BO XILAI – NOW ARGUABLY A RISING POLITICAL STAR IN THE COUNTRY.
CONTROVERSIALLY, ON MOST OF HER TRIPS TO CHINA, FEINSTEIN HAS BEEN ACCOMPANIED BY HER INVESTMENT-BANKER HUSBAND RICHARD BLUM, TO WHOM FEINSTEIN HAS BEEN MARRIED SINCE 1980. BLUM HAS BEEN REPORTED BY US MEDIA AS HAVING EXTENSIVE BUSINESS INTERESTS WITH CHINA. FEINSTEIN IS OFTEN DESCRIBED AS ONE OF THE MOST POWERFUL WOMEN IN US POLITICS.
But perhaps her worst reaction in commenting on the 1989 Tiananmen Square massacre. It’s still not clear how many people were killed when the Chinese government sent the People’s Liberation Army (PLA) into the square to clear out the peaceful protesting students.
But in a Wall Street Journal interview in 2010, Feinstein sought to explain the massacre in the best possible light for the Communist Party and the government.
“IT JUST SO HAPPENS I WAS HERE AFTER THAT AND TALKED TO JIANG ZEMIN AND LEARNED THAT AT THE TIME CHINA HAD NO LOCAL POLICE. IT WAS JUST THE PLA. AND NO LOCAL POLICE THAT HAD CROWD CONTROL. SO, HENCE THE TANKS.”It’s All Adding Up: Feinstein’s Chinese Spy Was Just Half of It
