Demand Justice Calls for Dianne Feinstein’s Removal as Lead Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee

WASHINGTON - Demand Justice Executive Director Brian Fallon called for Sen. Dianne Feinstein to be removed as the lead Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee and issued the following statement:

“It's time for Sen. Feinstein to step down from her leadership position on the Senate Judiciary Committee. If she won't, her colleagues need to intervene.

"She has undercut Democrats' position at every step of this process, from undermining calls for filibuster and Court reform straight through to thanking Republicans for the most egregious partisan power grab in the modern history of the Supreme Court. If Senate Democrats are going to get their act together on the courts going forward, they cannot be led by someone who treats Sunrise activists with contempt and the Republican theft of a Supreme Court seat with kid gloves.”
