Over the last two months, Senator Diane Feinstein (D-CA) has taken considerable flack for her conduct as the ranking member of the Senate Judiciary Committee.
The tipping point came during the Amy Coney Barrett hearings, where Feinstein complimented Barrett for her answers rather than going on the attack.
She also gave Senator Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) a hug after the hearing, which really set people off.
The far left in the party were furious, and now it appears as though Feinstein will slink away and cower to their demands.
Feinstein has been a fixture in Democrat leadership for more than a decade.
Her first chair assignment was on the Senate Rules Committee in 2007 and she has served as either the Chair, Vice Chair, or Ranking Member for her respective committee ever since.
In 2021, that will all come to an end, as she is going to take a step back and let new blood take over her leadership role.
After massive pushback during the Amy Coney Barrett hearings, Feinstein had been designated as a relic by her party in this never-ending war against conservatism.
The charge for her to step down was led by AOC’s Demand Justice Executive Director, Brian Fallon, who stated, “It’s time for Sen. Feinstein to step down from her leadership position on the Senate Judiciary Committee. If she won’t, her colleagues need to intervene.”
Feinstein, on stepped down, stated, “After serving as the lead Democrat on the Judiciary Committee for four years, I will not seek the chairmanship or ranking member position in the next Congress.”
This is just the beginning of the uber-progressive takeover in Congress, as you can rest assured, for every inch they are given, they will try to take a foot.
The Democrat party will be making a huge statement when it chooses Feinstein’s replacement, but we are pretty sure we already know what that message will be.
