But she’s looking everywhere but the U.S. “I think the world has to rise up and say we’ve had enough of this,” Feinstein told CNN’s Candy Crowley. “I think Europe has to come together. I think Germany in particular has to lead. I think we have to continue with sanctions. That’s difficult, because you need Russian help in so many things – the P5+1, Syria, and a lot of our energy is tied up in Russia, but you cannot let this kind of thing happen.” Perhaps she knows she won’t find the necessary leadership from the Nobel Peace Prize winner in the Oval Office.
