Reps in Senate move to replace Sen. Feinstein on Judiciary Committee
WASHINGTON (KUSI) – Sen. Dianne Feinstein has been absent from Congress for two months following a bout of shingles that has negatively impacted her health long after her technical “recovery”.
Her absence from the Senate Judiciary Committee is preventing roughly one-dozen presidential nominees from being approved/denied.
Senate Republicans are moving to block Democratic efforts to replace Sen. Feinstein, but senior Republicans made it clear they would not support such a vote.
The issue is creating enormous pressure on Feinstein to resign her position or return to Congress.
