Democrats Demand Dianne Feinstein's Resignation

 April 14, 2023

Democrats are turning their backs on one of their own and calling for Democrat Sen. Dianne Feinstein of California to resign.

"Two House Democrats took to Twitter Wednesday to express their wishes for Feinstein to resign, alluding to concerns over her health and ability to perform her duties as a senator, despite the fact she announced her intention not to run for re-election earlier this year," reported Fox News.

"It’s time for [Feinstein] to resign. We need to put the country ahead of personal loyalty," Democrat Rep. Ro Khanna of California wrote. "While she has had a lifetime of public service, it is obvious she can no longer fulfill her duties. Not speaking out undermines our credibility as elected representatives of the people."

Democrat Representative Dean Phillips of Minnesota wrote, "Senator Feinstein is a remarkable American whose contributions to our country are immeasurable. But I believe it’s now a dereliction of duty to remain in the Senate and a dereliction of duty for those who agree to remain quiet."

"Feinstein, 89, who has served in the Senate for over 30 years, was hospitalized for shingles last month and has faced other health issues, including concerning reports related to her mental fitness. She had previously faced calls to resign prior to announcing her retirement," reported Fox News.
