‘Why isn’t this headline news?’ Details emerge about long-time Chinese spy who worked under Feinstein

New details emerged about the Chinese spy who managed to stay undetected under Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s nose for two decades.

While the California Democrat has been working to stall the confirmation of Supreme Court Justice nominee Brett Kavanaugh, she has conveniently ignored the bombshell in her own camp.

A staffer for the Bay Area senator, who just won her re-election bid for a fifth term in Washington, turned out to have been recruited by Chinese intelligence and “reported back to China about local politics,” according to Politico. More details about the staffer, who was fired after being connected to Chinese spying in the Bay Area a few years ago, were revealed by the San Francisco Chronicle on Wednesday.

The Chinese spy was reportedly Feinstein’s driver, a gofer in her office and a liaison to the Asian-American community who even attended Chinese consulate functions for the senator.

When the FBI told her she’d be infiltrated about five years ago, the then-chairwoman of the Senate Intelligence Committee was reportedly “mortified.”

The FBI apparently concluded that nothing of any substance was leaked by the driver and Feinstein forced him to retire, according to the Chronicle.

“None of her staff ever knew what was going on,” an unidentified source told the publication. “They just kept it quiet.”

“Think about Diane Feinstein and what she had access to,” former FBI agent and KPIX 5 security analyst told the station. “One, she had access to the Chinese community here in San Francisco; great amount of political influence. Two, correct me if I’m wrong, Dianne Feinstein still has very close ties to the intelligence committees there in Washington, D.C.”

Yet the report seemed to get lost in the cacophony of liberal hysteria over the latest tweet from President Donald Trump, the ongoing probe into alleged Russian meddling in the U.S. election and the most recent tantrum by CNN’s Jim Acosta.

Why not, indeed?

Seems there are always a special set of rules for Democrats.
