posted by Hannity Staff – 20 hours ago
The group Demand Justice and its Executive Director and former Clinton insider Brian Fallon are calling for the removal of Sen. Dianne Feinstein from the Judiciary Committee for her recent role in the confirmation hearings of Judge Amy Coney Barrett.
“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,” writes the press release.
“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,” it adds.

“I just want to thank you. This has been one of the best set of hearings that I’ve participated in,” she tells him. “Thank you so much for your leadership.”

Senator Lindsey Graham was officially elected as the newest chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee this week; taking control from Sen. Chuck Grassley who announced last year he would be stepping down in January.
“I’m honored to be selected as chairman of the Judiciary Committee,” Graham said in a separate news release. “I will do my best to continue down the path charted by Senator Grassley of having a fair and vibrant committee process.”
“The confirmation of conservative judges will be one of my top priorities as chairman,” he added.
Graham confirmed Wednesday that he plans to launch investigations into allegations the FBI and other agencies illegally surveilled the Trump campaign during the 2016 election.
Sen. Dianne Feinstein will remain as the ranking Democrat on the committee.
