The California senator angered liberal groups after she praised Trump's Supreme Court nominee and the GOP senator in charge of confirmation hearings.
The California Democrat was swiftly criticized this week for praising GOP Sen. Lindsey Graham for his running of the Supreme Court confirmation hearing.
“I thought it was a very poor set of hearings,” the California congresswoman said.
The two senators even shared a hug afterward. Now a progressive group is calling for her removal from the Senate Judiciary Committee.
Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) and Ranking Member Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) shared a maskless hug after the conclusion of the confirmation hearings for Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett.
Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett twice said “sexual preference” instead of “sexual orientation” when referring to the LGBTQ community, a term that suggests sexuality is a choice.
The Supreme Court nominee would not weigh in on President Donald Trump's threats to delay the election — a power he does not have.
Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett declined to answer whether the Constitution would allow President Donald Trump to delay the presidential election.
Some progressives are furious that they're legitimizing Amy Coney Barrett's rushed, partisan confirmation process by participating at all.
The omissions raise concerns about the "rushed confirmation process," said Sen. Dianne Feinstein, the top Democrat on the committee.
