During her decades-long, brave and stunning tenure as a Lionness of the Senate — or whatever stupid narrative the corporate state media is pushing about its dead puppet today — consummate Swamp creature Dianne Feinstein managed to accumulate a fortune for herself measured in the hundreds of millions of dollars.
She managed this feat, curiously, while making a (nominal) salary of $174,00 per year.
Now that she finally kicked the bucket, after being functionally dead for several years at this point, her Swamp vulture progeny are warring over her bloated carcass before it’s even in the ground, a continuation of a feud that’s been brewing since at least the summer.
Via Daily Mail:
“Dianne Feinstein’s daughter and three stepdaughters are set to inherit the late senator’s $102 million property portfolio, as well as her $62 million private jet.
The California congresswoman, who died in DC Friday aged 90, leaves behind an Italianite mansion with stunning views of San Francisco Bay that’s worth $21 million.
Democrat Feinstein – whose vast wealth raised eyebrows – died in a Washington DC mansion she owned that’s worth $7.4 million.
She also owned a $5 million Hawaii duplex, $7.5 million beach house in Marin County, California and a $62 million Gulfstream G650 jet she used to shuttle between her property empire.
Feinstein’s already-vast coffers were further swelled by the sale of two other enviable homes in recent years – an Aspen ranch sold last year for $25 million, and a Lake Tahoe compound sold for $36 million. She is also believed to have had around $70 million cash in the bank.”
Via The New York Times:
“A judge in San Francisco on Monday ordered the two factions of Senator Dianne Feinstein’s family fighting over the estate of her late husband, the wealthy financier Richard C. Blum, to try to settle the case through mediation.
The order, which both sides agreed to, came as the lawyers in the case appeared in a courtroom for the first time after trading hostile accusations in legal filings over the summer.
On one side is Senator Feinstein, who at 90 is in declining health and has faced questions about her ability to carry out the duties of her job, and her daughter, Katherine Feinstein, a former San Francisco judge. On the other side are the three daughters of Mr. Blum from a previous marriage, and his former business partners who are the trustees of his estate.”
Here’s how Feinstein’s grift worked: she got herself married to a Manhattan investment banker, the above-mentioned subhuman Mr. Blum. From her perch in the Senate, she funneled to him and/or his business associates insider information and crafted policy favorable to his current or prospective investments, he acted on said information and favors, and they both amassed a pretty penny for themselves.
That’s how this game is played, and it’s why fellow Lionness of the House of Representatives, Nancy Pelosi, who runs the same scam, has publicly rejected calls to curb insider trading.
A modest proposal: let’s see Feinstein off to her maker by appropriating her stolen fortune and returning it back to the 168 million taxpayers of the United States who financed her historic grift in the form of return checks.
Her spoiled children deserve the opportunity to work for a living for once in their miserable lives. To borrow a phrase from the late Christopher Hitchens, they might try their hand on the street selling pencils from a cup.
What sweet schadenfreude it would be!
A boy can dream.
Someday, though, a little rain is gonna come.
“The sky will open up this time
We won’t overlook a thing
Criminal, criminal, criminal
We won’t overlook a thing
Criminal, criminal, criminal…
Someday a real rain is gonna come
And clean up the mess”
