Sen. Dianne Feinstein called on the Bureau of Land Management to “cap” pre-existing oil-wells around the country this week; saying the issue poses a “major danger” to the environment during the national pandemic.
“Oil companies have abandoned millions of oil wells across the country. This poses a danger to the environment and surrounding communities. That’s unacceptable. We’re calling on the Bureau of Land Management to develop a plan to cap these oil wells.

FEINSTEIN FAIL: FBI says ‘NO INVESTIGATION’ into Mysterious Kavanaugh Letter
Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s last-minute curveball to derail Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearings ended in total failure Friday, with the FBI saying they have no plans to open a criminal investigation into the legislator’s mysterious letter.
The left-wing lawmaker suddenly announced this week the existence of a secret letter sent to the FBI regarding Kavanaugh’s nomination; citing the anonymous message as a reason to indefinitely delay the proceedings.
Insiders say Feinstein has had possession of the mysterious material since mid-summer.
“Several officials confirmed that the letter was referred to the FBI. But the bureau does not plan to launch a criminal investigation, according to a person familiar with the matter — a probe that would normally be handled by local authorities if it were within the statute of limitations,” writes the Washington Post.
“Instead, the FBI passed the material to the White House as an update to Kavanaugh’s background check, which already has been completed,” adds the article.

APOCALYPSE NOW: Feinstein Warns ‘PEOPLE WILL DIE’ if Gov Shuts Down
Leading Democrats have officially abandoned their dire predictions of ‘Armageddon’ surrounding the GOP tax cuts, but are now warning that “people will die” should the government shut down Friday evening; saying the move will cause “necessary functions” to cease for civilians throughout the country.
Left-leaning Senator Dianne Feinstein escalated her war of words with her Congressional opponents on Thursday, breathlessly claiming the pending shutdown would likely cause death and destruction for an untold number of Americans.
“Shutting down the government is a very serious thing. People die, accidents happen. You don’t know. Necessary functions can cease,” Feinstein told CNN.
“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,” she added.
Despite the liberal Senator’s concerns, Feinstein announced she will not vote for any budget deal that doesn’t include a ‘Dream Act.’
“I won’t vote for a CR without the Dream Act. We need to get the Dream Act passed, negotiate a multi-year budget agreement and fund the government through September, and we need to do so now,” Feinstein tweeted.
