Sen. Dianne Feinstein at Gorsuch hearingsFor 20 years, Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) had a Chinese spy working for her who attended official functions on her behalf and served as her personal driver – while she was the United States Senate Intelligence Committee chairman.

“Along with driving duties, the staffer was a gofer and a liaison to the Asian American community,” WND reported. “He even attended Chinese Consulate functions for the senator.”

Clueless in San Francisco

The revelation that Feinstein’s trusted worker was a spy apparently alarmed the veteran Democratic senator – who was shocked after discovering his alleged connection with the communist Chinese government’s intelligence and security agency.

“Feinstein reportedly had no idea that her office was being infiltrated by a man who was feeding information to an individual linked to China’s Ministry of State Security,” the Federalist reported. “She was ‘mortified’ when the FBI showed up at her Washington, D.C. office five years ago to warn her about the mole.”

Dems foolishly sending out spy with intelligence

There was suspicion that the covert Democratic staffer was delivering political intelligence to officials based at the local Chinese Consulate – while he was based in Feinstein’s office in San Francisco, California, yet it was disclosed by Politico that none of the information was classified as top secret.

It was further noted that author Zach Dorfman was informed by a former intelligence official that the suspected Chinese spy was “run” by those working at this Chinese Consulate.

Another report explained that several years ago, Feinstein was alerted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) that an ongoing investigation was being carried out on her driver, who was under suspicion of being a covert Chinese informant under her employment, according to an unnamed source familiar with the probe, as reported the San Francisco Chronicle’s Andrew Ross and Phillip Matier.

According to the Chronicle’s source, Feinstein’s staffer had ties to an affiliate with the People’s Republic of China’s Ministry of State Security while he was visiting relatives in Asia during a trip, and it was noted that on ensuing visits ,the contact stayed in touch with him.

Apparently, the Chinese spy was oblivious to the Chinese government’s intent – at first.

“[Feinstein’s staffer] didn’t even know what was happening – that he was being recruited,” the source told the Chronicle. “He just thought it was some friend.”

Getting off scot-free

Because of the particular kind of information the suspected spy was gathering – and subsequently disseminating to the Chinese government – it was difficult for the FBI to prosecute the infiltrator in the U.S. justice system.

“The FBI wasn’t able to charge the individual – possibly because he was passing on political intelligence, rather than classified materials – making the prosecution nearly impossible,” Fox News reported.

After being questioned by the FBI, it was determined that nothing of great substance was divulged by the driver.

But the information found by the FBI against him spurred Feinstein to take immediate action against the spy – but his termination was kept under wraps.

“They interviewed him, and Dianne forced him to retire – and that was the end of it,” the Chronicle’s source added. “None of her staff ever knew what was going on. They just kept it quiet.”

Communists paying for U.S. intel?

The interrogated staffer’s covert job was reportedly part of an ongoing scheme to dig up information on the inner workings of the U.S. government – intelligence that the communist regime’s top officials hoped could be of some use as one of America’s top competitors.

“[The Democrat’s staffer] was allegedly part of an effort to spy and pass on political intelligence to the Chinese government,” Fox News’ Lukas Mikelionis explained.

For taking part in the scheme to infiltrate Feinstein’s Northern California headquarters and extract crucial information, it is believed that Chinese officials paid out some sort of monetary compensation.

“A former official said that the spy’s handler ‘probably got an award back in China’ for his efforts to penetrate Feinstein’s office and pass on intelligence,” Mikelionis pointed out.
