Report: Feinstein The Political Zombie, Here’s Who’s Really Pulling The Strings

It looks like despite Senator Dianne Feinstein’s prolonged health troubles, her aides still have their hands firmly on the wheel as far as her voting record and other decisions are concerned.

Feinstein’s return to the Senate has been accompanied by a continued protection from the press and the public, something that has raised eyebrows even in the Democratic camp.

David Axelrod, a former adviser to President Barack Obama, was outspoken in criticizing the Feinstein aides’ approach, saying “They have a responsibility to give her brutally honest counsel and then adhere to her wishes, as she — and not they — were elected. And they have an obligation to help her meet her own responsibilities to her state and the office.”

Even though Feinstein’s chief of staff James Sauls claims staff are only there to advise her and Feinstein ultimately makes the decisions, it seems to be a lot more than that.

Feinstein has not only missed six votes, she has not attended any committee hearings or caucus lunches since her return. And of course, the protection from the Capitol Police and the Senate sergeant-at-arms.

When Feinstein denied having encephalitis during a CNN interview, quickly correcting herself afterwards, it was an embarrassment for her aides.

Since encephalitis is inflammation of the brain caused by an infection or an autoimmune response, it’s easy to understand the confusion. Feinstein further added to the confusion by saying she only had a ‘bad flu’.

It it just her aides pulling Feinstein’s string? According to reports—No… Former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s daughter has reportedly helped the Democrat make political decisions that effects thousands of Americans.

Given all this, her comments from her biographer Jerry Roberts, made in the 1990s, about not letting staff run you, seem especially poignant. While it’s understandable that Feinstein needs the help of her aides, it might not be a bad idea to actually listen to her own advice.

Democrats are not going to allow Feinstein step down, and I don’t think she has the capacity to step down anymore. That said, desperate Democrats are going to let Feinstein die in office just like they did SCOTUS Lib, RBG.

We all know that Feinstein is an experienced politician and senator, for better or worse, it’s pretty despicable to hear that her aides are essentially using her as a zombie puppet.
