Feinstein: Obama Broke Law

Obama’s real play was different.

Senate Intelligence Committee Chair Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) offered further thoughts on the Gitmo exchange: “The concerns are bipartisan. I strongly believe that [Congress] should’ve been consulted, but the law should have been followed, and I very much regretted that was not the case.” While Democrats like Feinstein are no doubt genuinely angry at Obama for not consulting with them, there is a significant concern about covering their own rears with voters right now. Obama may have elected to bypass Congress in order to give Democrats – those who are already vulnerable because of ObamaCare and his energy policies – plausible deniability in connection with the Gitmo exchange, because he was going to make that exchange regardless. Fox News and the rest of the mainstream media are only now catching up with what we posted Monday, suggesting that Obama really did think this would be a big plus for him among many constituents.
