Hypocrite Feinstein, Too?

Hypocrite Feinstein, Too?

Dianne Feinstein, Senator from California, even questioned Carol Lam’s immigration prosecution rates!

[Hypocrisy/Hypocrite; the false assumption of an appearance of virtue…, an actor or pretender of virtue and fairness.]

“Even Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., now one of Lam’s strongest supporters, questioned Lam’s immigration prosecution rates, although Feinstein said she was satisfied with the answer that Lam was focusing on big cases.

Issa and 18 other lawmakers angrily wrote Attorney General Alberto Gonzales on Oct. 20, 2005, about immigration prosecutions, particularly in Southern California.

“It is the responsibility of the Department of Justice to punish dangerous criminals who violate federal laws, and this includes criminal aliens,” the letter reads.”

“In short, not only were Feinstein and Issa bombarding DoJ with complaints about Lam’s lax immigration enforcement for weeks before and after Sampson wrote the “real problem” memo, but the delegation actually was scheduled to meet with DoJ officials on the very day, May 11, that the memo was sent. In short, there is a ton of evidence that DoJ’s explanation (re immigration) was accurate, and not a single shred of evidence to indicate that Sampson had any concerns whatsoever, not even a smidgen, with the Cunningham/Lewis investigations.”

“How, then, could Feinstein, with a straight face, refuse to accept the DoJ explanation that Lam’s problem was with immigration enforcement, when she, Feinstein, knew that the explanation was accurate — and when, of course, as we have seen, Lam was not investigating Lewis?” http://www.spectator.org/blogger

“On May 11, then-Justice Department chief of staff Kyle Sampson wrote an e-mail to an official in the White House counsel’s office asking to discuss “the real problem that we have right now with Carol Lam” that led him to believe she should be replaced. That e-mail was included in documents released by the Justice Department last week.

Justice Department officials have said that Lam was let go because of insufficient prosecution of gun crimes and immigration violations. Gonzales has denied that any of the dismissals of the U.S. attorneys were connected with investigations they were pursuing.

But Feinstein has said that despite those denials she believes Lam’s dismissal had something to do with her prosecution of the Cunningham case. Lam’s office indicted Foggo and Wilkes last month, just two days before she left her post.

Speaking on CBS’ “Face the Nation” on Sunday Feinstein stopped short of claiming that Sampson’s May 11 e-mail was directly related to Lam’s disclosure the day before of pending warrants.” http://www.nctimes.com/articles
