Sen. Dianne Feinstein to step down as leader of Senate Judiciary Committee

Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) confirmed on Monday that she will step down from her longtime position as Democrat leader of the Senate Judiciary Committee in the 117th Congress. 

Feinstein received major backlash from the left due to her handling of now-Supreme Court Justice Amy Coney Barrett’s confirmation hearings, with a number of pundits suggesting during that process that it was time for the 87-year-old Senator to step aside.

“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,” the California Democrat said in a statement. “I look forward to continuing to serve as a senior Democrat on the Judiciary, Intelligence, Appropriations and Rules committees as we work with the Biden administration.”

Barrett’s confirmation process was rapid and seamless, and leftists were incensed by Feinstein’s failure to stall the process or throw Barrett’s character under the bus in a manner similar to the treatment Justice Brett Kavanaugh received.

After Feinstein offered Graham — who has been characterized as the most reprehensible of humans by the media — an affable embrace on the Senate floor after Barrett’s official confirmation, dedicated partisans simply couldn’t allow her to retain her power any longer.

Brian Fallon, executive director of Demand Justice, issued a statement demanding Feinstein’s resignation from the Judiciary Committee, declaring that “Going forward, Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee must be led by someone who will not wishfully cling to a bygone era of civility and decorum that Republicans abandoned long ago.”

The outcry from Fallon and many others like him quickly gained traction, and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) said that he would have a “long and serious” talk with Feinstein, though the details and results of that conversation were never disclosed.

Politico reported on Monday evening that Senate Minority Whip Dick Durbin (D-IL) is next in line for the job, followed by Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI). Durbin has already announced his intention to seek the position in the 117th Congress.

“I intend to seek the top Democratic position on the Judiciary Committee in the 117th Congress,” said Durbin in a statement. “We have to roll up our sleeves and get to work on undoing the damage of the last four years and protecting fundamental civil and human rights.”

Another misleading headline. Make the headlines more inline with what the story is really all about. Was hoping for some good news, but, not. Feinstein is still going to be there causing problems.

We only look forward to the last Democrat Criminal being prosecuted and sent to prison. The Democrat Party has been a curse on America since before the Civil War. Imagine and America without them. This woman has in her employ a Chinese spy for 20 years driving her around and feeding info back to Biden’s CCP. And She Still Walks Free!

the democrats in the 1860’s could read and understand the constitution. I guess it is OK to secede in 1776 from a tyrant in England, but not secede from one in the Den of Corruption in 1861? Those brave men were willing to separate because of over taxation. Look at all the abuse we complain about, but continue to be cowards and slaves of these sissies & perverts. Amerika has been evil and corrupt for 160 years. Learn some real history, NOT the yankee version

She hasn’t made enough money to quit yet. If she quit, she’d lose her ability to cheat, lie and steal. 87 years old and the voter keeps reelecting her. Doesn’t that seem strange to you?

CAN ANYONE WHO HAS AUTHORITY, AND IS A PATRIOT, PLEASE SHUT DOWN THIS ELECTION FRAUD, FOR WHAT IT IS? JUST AS IT’S BEING SHOWN TO ALL OF US, AS JUST WHAT IT IS, DEMOCRATIC ELECTION FRAUD. AS IT SEEMS THAT ONLY A FEW CREDIBLE PEOPLE ACTALLY ARE COMING OUT TO HELP THE TRUE PRESIDENT, WHICH IS “TRUMP”. NOW IS THE TIME FOR ALL PATRIOTS TO HELP OUT IN OVERCOMING THIS 2ND “COUP” ATTEMPT, FOR THAT’S EXACTLY WHAT IT IS.

I DON’T KNOW WHY THEY KEEP ON INTERVIEWING, TWITTER/FACEBOOK/GOOGLE, AND NO HEADS ARE ROLLING OF TO JAIL? WHY KEEP ON TALKING TO THEM, THEY AIN’T GOING TO CHANGE THEIR ANTI-AMERICAN WAYS, SO JAIL THE BASTARDS.

AMERICA IS BEING TAKEN OVER BY MANY, RADICAL BLACKS/MUSLIMS/LGBT, ETC. WE KNOW IT, BUT DO NOTHING TO GET THESE PEOPLE OUT OF OUR HAIR. THEY ARE THE ENEMY, WHAT PART OF THIS DOESN’T OUR GOVERNMENT UNDERSTAND? WHY ARE THEY NOT JAILING THESE PEOPLE, WHO CONSTANTLY DO WRONG AGAINST AMERICA/AMERICANS? I CAN TELL YOU WHY, BECAUSE WE HAVE NO LAW ENFORCEMENT DEPTS THAN ARE TRUE AMERICAN PATRIOTS, AND WANT TO DO THE RIGHT THINGS TO HELP AMERICA. THE LAW OFFICES, DOJ/BILL BARR, AND THE FBI/WRAY, AND THE CIA/HASPEL, ALL SHOULD BE IN JAIL BY NOW, BIT AREN’T? JUST WHY IS THIS MR, PRESIDENT?

AND SPECIAL MENTION, WHY SPECIFICALLY IS GEORGE SOROS, THE WORST GUY AGAINST AMERICA EVER, GUILTY AS HELL ON ALL COUNTS, AND EVEN BLOOMBERG USING HIS RICHES AGAINST AMERICA, WHY ARE THEY NOT IN JAIL ALSO?

You just answered your own question… all that money they have has put them in control they had 4 years to do this while they kept everybody busy with the fake impeachment they were busy planning this with all the swamp in on it and they were paying for it and buying up all the votes. But God has away where there seems to be no way. All the money in the world can not buy them out of hell!

The very people in charge of making these arrest are the ones they should start with. They are just as corrupt ..
That’s why president Trump has made so many changes in government and can’t seem to find enough loyal Patriots to fill there positions. We are all frustrated, but it’s not Trump’s fault.We the people have to finally STOP THE TALK and stand up and back our president up.. How long are we gonna sit back and let them do whatever the hell they want ??? We the people need a plan AND QUICK

How is that they are talking like they have won the Senate I mean GA has a run off and they act like they know they already won it. Is it just me or does this sound like “Okay we had our 4 years now you get yours and then will see what we can do in 4 years from now”. This is the biggest bunch of garbage I have ever seen. No biden will not be my president as he is a crook and the biggest crook I have ever seen. If the repubs take the senate they need to impeach him from day one on the corruption he and his son have done and are doing!

Biden is appointing criminals and chinses mafia as his cabinet, he is already getting his orders form Beijing, to press their communist agenda. This is not the way to run a country. I ask you dems doesn’t seem a little strange that your president has told you how he is going to run the country. All he has done is hide in his basement. I guess your superheroes will take good care of you. Yah right you are going to be well off.

I am sure that Pelosi has been the way she is now her whole life! I am 87 and I have been a conservative person for my whole life. I am very well aware of the difference between right and wrong, but perhaps that is because of my belief in God, as I have attended Church since I was a toddler. I definitely know the difference between right and wrong ! ! ! ! Really hard to believe that the United States is about to fall under the control of those who definitely do not have those values ! ! As long as those who are ready to take over our Government can somehow gain control, we are facing a terrifying future !

I’m so scared. I’ve got kids and grandkids and great grandkids. I’m scared for them. Are they never going to realize the wonder of being a US citizen and growing up in the USA. Will they never know the joy of the simple things in life.All I can say is God help us.

The future of this nation frightens me and sickens me. We will no longer have the freedoms promised in our Constitution and Bill of Rights as those in power will subvert every safeguard our founders left in place. We now have a broken and crooked voting process, which was our last bastion of allowing the true Americans to have their
say in our governing process. I have been a patriotic American for all my 90 years, and in spite of my, and millions of my fellows, prayers, I fear God has had enough of the ugly transgressions that those on the left, have condoned and monetarily supported. Most especially those who profess to love and worship Him, but have denied Him access to schools, government, congregations , and all avenues of Christian expression. If this is truly His will, so be it. But I will never kowtow to this crooked imposter who shames America by calling himself president.

And the way the story unfolds gradually building up the tension while at the same time treading on that fine line between dark and light, good and evil, is just amazing how that was done in terms of sentimentality Ripley ,missed her daughters birthday because fate was cruel to her given the circumstances of her floating out into space for 57 years, after she escaped from the Nostramo.
