Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., said Sunday she trusts the Iranians and Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu should “contain” himself.
Feinstein spoke on CNN’s “State of the Union” with CNN Senior White House Correspondent Jim Acosta, who, though less flashy than a couple of others, is one of the best questioners in the White House briefing room.
FEINSTEIN: I wish that he would contain himself, because he has put out no real alternative, in his speech to the Congress, no real alternative, since then, no real alternative . . .
I believe that this foreign minister (Javad Zarif) and this Iranian president (Hassan Rouhani), both of whom are moderates, really want to show that there is another way for Iran, and therefore, giving up this program is worth it.”
ACOSTA: You mentioned Foreign Minister Javad Zarif a couple of times. It sounds like you trust him. Do you trust the Iranians?
FEINSTEIN: I believe he (Zarif) is sincere. I believe that President Rouhani wants this. And it looks like the supreme leader will be agreeable.
Netanyahu, Feinstien repeatedly added, was not being “helpful.”
As in, please help arrange your own demise.
Feinstein wouldn’t even acknowledge that Iran has been trying to develop a nuclear weapon. Talk about unhelpful. She really needs to contain herself.
