Activists Call on Dianne Feinstein to Resign Following News She Will Cede Top Spot on Judiciary Cmte.

HeadlineNov 25, 2020

California Senator Dianne Feinstein is stepping down as the top Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee. Feinstein faced intense backlash last month over her weak performance during the confirmation proceedings for Justice Amy Coney Barrett. She has also drawn ire among climate activists after a widely circulated video in which she disparaged young children asking her to support the Green New Deal. The Sunrise Movement said in response to the news that Feinstein should not just step down but resign to make way for a progressive California lawmaker who supports the Green New Deal.
