That’s what right-wing blogs are screaming about Dianne Feinstein’s conflicts of interest, where the Hell is their side?
As a member of the Military Construction Appropriations subcommittee, Sen. Feinstein voted for appropriations worth billions to her husband’s firms.
Why isn’t the media covering this? Why aren’t Republicans screaming about this?
a) Many congressional Republicans no doubt have similar egregious conflicts of interest.
b) The ruling class will always defend itself against the rest of us. That’s the reason for the media silence and the lack of response from ranking Republicans. War profiteering is something the ruling class often does, and they are terrified this will turn into a major issue.
And it should be a major issue. Feinstein voted for war funding that hugely benefited her husband’s companies. She didn’t recuse her vote and no one in the Senate said this is wrong or tried to stop it. Of course they knew.
This isn’t a Left vs. Right issue. This concerns us all.
