The Mediacrats, to the extent they have covered California Dim Sen. Diane Feinstein’s Chinese government spy at all, insist on calling him a driver. He was, instead, her “staff liasion to the Asian-American community.”
When he was outed by the FBI in 2014—after 20 years—although she was then head of the Senate Intelligence Committee,he was quietly allowed to retire with no retribution whatsoever. He still works in San Francisco.
Read. It. All.

UPDATE: The story has gotten “minimal play” from the Mediacrats. Well, they are Democrats after all and subject to Democrat Privilege.
MORE: Even if he was a mere driver “It’s plenty serious,” one former top Justice Department official told me. “Focusing on his driver function alone, in Mafia families, the boss’s driver was among the most trusted men in the crew, because among other things he heard everything that was discussed in the car.”
“In “Not Close Enough,“ a team consisting of NASA and international astronauts sits in orbit around Mars but doesn’t get to go to the surface. NASA has decided it’s too risky.”
The story is from a good new book Blue Collar Space by Martin Shoemaker. Wherein NASA’s fear of losing astronaut lives is explored. That fear has crippled our space program, space lawyer Laura Montgomery argues. And it makes sense. Such that our only hope to ever land on Mars or do anything else except at great expense is with commercial space, and blowhards like Elon Musk.

“[Former CIA director John O.] Brennan, who supported the Soviet-controlled American Communist Party, meets the textbook definition of a useful idiot for the Russians. At the height of the Cold War, he cast his vote in 1976 for Gus Hall, the American Communist Party’s presidential candidate. He refused to take his Oath of Office on the Bible during his swearing-in ceremony.
“Brennan deplored Ronald Reagan’s description of the Soviet Union as an evil empire and joined other leftists in demanding that he pursue détente with Marxist thugs who make Putin look like a piker. During his time as Obama’s CIA Director he sanitized the concept of jihad and constantly whitewashed Islamic terrorism.
“Now that he’s left the armchair comfort of the CIA he has resumed the radicalism of his youth by calling for civil disobedience and the overthrow of a duly elected president.”

UPDATE: Kimberley A. Strassel in the WSJ: “Mr. Comey stands accused of flouting the rules, breaking the chain of command, abusing investigatory powers. Yet it seems far likelier that the FBI’s Trump investigation was a function of arrogance and overconfidence than some partisan plot. No such case can be made for Mr. Brennan…by his own testimony, he as an Obama-Clinton partisan was pushing information to the FBI and pressuring it to act.”
He never actually worked as an agent. As for why he’s still employed, could be his associates fear his Deep State background:
“We know Peter Strzok III, the man who sent those vile text messages about our President…was raised in Iran and Saudi Arabia…
“…[He] was placed in the FBI to ensure a win for Hillary Clinton and buffer negative press (like the Weiner laptop case, which he covered up). That’s the real deal. Revealing Peter Strzok’s identity would have been a problem because it’s called unmasking but since he is in the limelight and out of the shadows it’s time to lay all the cards FACE up on the table for all to see who Peter Strzok really is.”

This is how we testify before Congress, the closest thing you have to accountability. As if. And then we impeach presidents who oppose us.
Trump throwing a server wrench into the Mueller indictment machine.
“So let me just say that we have two thoughts: You have groups that are wondering why the FBI never took the server. Why haven’t they taken the server? Why was the FBI told to leave the office of the Democratic National Committee [DNC]? I’ve been wondering that,” Trump said.
“I’ve been asking that for months and months, and I’ve been tweeting it out and calling it out on social media. Where is the server? I want to know, where is the server and what is the server saying? … I have President Putin, he just said it’s not Russia. I will say this: I don’t see any reason why it would be, but I really do want to see the server.”
“The shrinks call that ‘inappropriate affect’ and it sure was. What the hell was this guy smirking about? Even in the remote possibility (oh, how remote) that his bias had no direct political and investigatory consequence, he had shamed himself, his family, and the FBI and its personnel tremendously, damaging the organization materially for years to come. And yet he was smirking.”
When he wasn’t lifting his chin in the air, like Mussolini and Bronco Bama.
He had no idea what a fool he was making of himself.
