MRS. FEINSTEIN: THANK YOU. RESERVING THE RIGHT TO OBJECT, I'D

LIKE TO MAKE A COUPLE OF REMARKS AS TO WHY. SENATOR CRUZ,

BELIEVE IT OR NOT, I HAVE ACTUALLY PLAYED A ROLE, PARTICULARLY

IN THE 1990'S, IN HELPING DISSIDENTS TO BE RELEASED BY THE

GOVERNMENT OF CHINA AND HAD SOME SUCCESS, AND WE DID THAT BY

TALKING TO THE GOVERNMENT. I THINK TO DO THIS IN THIS WAY WILL

SET BACK THE CAUSE AND ACTUALLY BE DELETERIOUS TO THE RELEASE

OF THIS -- OF THESE PEOPLE. SO I OBJECT.
