President Trump has linked an article from The Washington Examiner which calls out Senator Dianne Feinstein's (D-CA) flip-flopping on a government shutdown.
From The Washington Examiner:
Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., cautioned Thursday that “people die, accidents happen” when the government shuts down, as it is poised to partially shut down Friday night if Congress doesn’t pass a government spending bill. It was her second shift in position on the bill in just one day.
“Shutting down the government is a very serious thing. People die, accidents happen,” Feinstein told CNN. “You don’t know. Necessary functions can cease. There is no specific list you can look at and make a judgment: ‘Well everything is going to be just fine.’ You can’t make that judgment. So, I think it’s a last resort. And I’m really hopeful we don’t get to it.”
Feinstein told CNN she hadn’t yet decided whether she will vote for the short-term spending bill unveiled by congressional Republicans earlier this week. The stopgap measure funds the government until Feb. 16 and reauthorizes the Children’s Health Insurance Program for six years.

Diane Feinstein has confirmed that she leaked the the testimony transcripts at the request of Fusion GPS lawyers.
From Dailycaller.com: WASHINGTON — California Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein told The Daily Caller that Fusion GPS lawyers asked her to release company co-founder Glenn Simpson’s testimony transcript.
She released the testimony Tuesday before consulting with Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, which she told TheDC she regrets. Feinstein is the top Democrat on the committee.
“We were written to by the lawyers of the company asking that it be released, and the reason, of course, is because it has been used by rumor and innuendo and falsity so much that the time came for people to see exactly what was said,” Feinstein said.
She said Wednesday that she felt “pressured” to release the transcript, though she later denied saying that.

Sen. Feinstein is actively helping the very people she’s supposedly “investigating.”
