Senator Diane Feinstein (D-CA) has managed to stay out of the line of fire since the Amy Coney Barrett confirmation hearings.
If you recall, after she hugged Senator Graham (R-S.C.), there were calls for her head.
Well, she is now back under attack, with former Senator Barbara Boxer (D-CA) now calling on Feinstein to step down.
Falling Out of Favor
After the confirmation hearings, Feinstein got rapped across the knuckles by Senator Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.).
Schumer removed Feinstein from her leadership role, and he was even putting pressure on her to retire after “the hug.”
Since then, things have died down a bit, but Larry Elder got things stirred up again.
Elder stated that if he won the recall election and Feinstein were to step down, he would replace her with a Republican until the next election.
Much like Justice Breyer, that renewed calls for Feinstein to step down now.
Boxer put it a bit nicer than others have in the past, merely suggesting that Feinstein consider stepping down.
She stated, “If Senator Feinstein were to call me today and asked my advice, I would say only you can decide this.
“But from my perspective, I want you to know I’ve had very productive years away from the Senate doing good things.
“So put that into the equation.”
Boxer was originally elected to the Senate with Feinstein in 1992, but she is eight years her junior.
Feinstein, 88, has yet to indicate that she will step down, pressure or not.
