Squad Member Calls For Feinstein To Resign

Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) called on Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) to step down on Friday, joining a small group of House Democrats who are urging the six-term Senate stalwart to resign due to her prolonged absence.
In a tweet on Friday, Tlaib voiced concerns that Senate Republicans have been able to push through legislation while Feinstein remains sidelined while recovering from shingles, and that the chamber has not been able to confirm partisan judges with her out of the Capitol.
“Because Sen. Feinstein was absent, Republicans are passing legislation through the Senate, undermining the right of our residents to breathe clean air. And with a far-right judiciary targeting our human rights, we are unable to confirm judges. Sen. Feinstein must step down,” Tlaib said.
