BREAKING: Feinstein Says LA Times “Misunderstood” Her and She’s NOT Leaning Towards Acquitting Trump

Senator Dianne Feinstein is saying a story from the LA Times that suggested she was leaning towards acquitting President Trump had it wrong and “misunderstood” her.

The LA Times had quoted Feinstein as saying “Nine months left to go, the people should judge. We are a republic, we are based on the will of the people — the people should judge…That was my view and it still is my view.”

The LA Times has now issued an update, writing “Update: Sen. Feinstein clarified her earlier comments suggesting that she could vote to acquit the president by saying, ‘It’s clear the president’s actions were wrong.'”

Feinstein herself tweeted.

The LA Times misunderstood what I said today.

Before the trial I said I’d keep an open mind. Now that both sides made their cases, it’s clear the president’s actions were wrong.

He withheld vital foreign assistance for personal political gain. That can’t be allowed to stand.

Feinstein also re-tweeted Alayna Treene who wrote:

I think the @latimes has this story backwards. I was the reporter who asked @SenFeinstein these questions. She told me she was initially going to vote against impeachment “before this”

But when I asked her to clarify, she said she’s changed her opinion
