As the ranking member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, Dianne Feinstein is supposed to be leading the fight to make sure our next Supreme Court justice is qualified, and that the process (which prominent Democrats have called "illegitimate" and "a sham") is fair. During the confirmation hearings, she proved she is not up to the task. Senator Feinstein should step down from the Senate Judiciary Committee, and her colleagues should urge her to do so.
Why is this important?
Republicans are trying to rewrite the rules and force through an unqualified, extremist candidate for a lifetime position to the Supreme Court.
Prominent Democrats spoke our strongly against this move, up until the moment where someone could actually do something. That person is Senator Feinstein, and she did nothing. She made small talk. She asked about Amy Coney Barrett's family. She thanked Lindsey Graham and gave him a hug.
If confirmed, Barrett would be in the position to invalidate some of our most hard-fought rights, like abortion access and the Affordable Care Act. Senator Feinstein is supposed to be fighting on our behalf to keep these rights intact, not thanking their opposition for their "fairness" during a patently unfair process.
As a constituent, I'm calling on Senator Feinstein to step down from her leadership role on the Senate Judiciary Committee, and make room for someone who's willing to fight the hard fights. I ask that her colleagues on the committee join us in voicing their disapproval of her leadership.
