[Ed. – It’s not enough. She should retire period.]
Democratic California Sen. Dianne Feinstein will reportedly step down as the top Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee.
Three people familiar say she will step down soon, according to Politico. A number of Democratic senators reportedly criticized Feinstein, saying she was not the right person to serve as the top Democrat for the Supreme Court nomination hearings of now-Justice Amy Coney Barrett.
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer also said he had a “long and serious” talk with Feinstein after the hearings.
In a Politico article published in late September, Democratic senators heavily criticized Feinstein while speaking on the condition of anonymity. One of the senators even allegedly said there is no way Feinstein could pull off leading the hearings for Democrats.
“She’s not sure what she’s doing,” one Democratic senator allegedly said of Feinstein.
