Senator Dianne Feinstein, Democrat of California, has committed an unpardonable sin to Democrats. She acted like a grownup, not like a screaming leftist junior high schooler, at the recent Barrett confirmation hearings. For that travesty she was publicly taken to the woodshed by Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, Democrat of New York. Privately, who knows.
Schumer is a liberal hack, not a committed leftist. So he could have just made the appearance of a rap on the knuckles, hence his vague comments on the situation.
FNC reports, “Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said Tuesday that he has had a ‘serious talk’ with fellow Democrat Sen. Dianne Feinstein following last week’s Senate confirmation hearing for Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett. ‘I’ve had a long and serious talk with Senator Feinstein. That’s all I’m going to say about it right now,’ Schumer told reporters at a news conference, The Washington Post reported. Feinstein, the 87-year-old senior senator from California, serves as ranking member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, the panel before which Barrett appeared.” Senator Chuck Grassley, Republican of Iowa, also chimed in. By the way, love how Grassley uses PC pieties against the Left.
Democrats calling for Senator Feinstein to step down from Judiciary Ranking Member should think twice abt their sexist & ageist motivations against an outstanding legislator & icon in her own right Attacks on Senator Feinstein are totally unjustified

So attacks from their own party are what happens to Democrats in Washington when they put rabid partisanship aside for a moment and put the country first. Feinstein, as opposed to cretins like Hirono, conducted herself at the hearings as befitting a United States senator. No grandstanding, no bellicose platitudes, no lies of omission or commission. She expressed her displeasure with the selection of the nominee, but not in a personal or over the top manner. From across the barricades, well done Senator
This was in stark contrast with NARAL Pro-Choice America honchette Ilyse Hogue. She spewed, “Amy Barrett and this power grab pose a grave threat to every freedom and right we hold dear and tears the very fabric of our democracy. Americans–whose lives hang in the balance – deserve leadership that underscores how unprecedented, shameful and wrong this process is. The ranking member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, Sen. Dianne Feinstein, failed to make this clear and in fact offered an appearance of credibility to the proceedings that is wildly out of step with the American people. As such, we believe the committee needs new leadership.”
With this attack against Feinstein the hard left are flexing their muscles prior to, what they believe will be, a Biden administration. If and when that happens they will launch a Stalinist purge against honest liberals and center left hacks. Only loony and vicious hard left socialist droids will be allowed in the blood-splattered halls of the modern Democrat/Antifa party. The Feinsteins and even the Schumers will be a thing of the past. Welcome…Senator Ocasio-Cortez.
