As Twitchy reported earlier, Sen. Dianne Feinstein capped off the Amy Coney Barrett confirmation hearings by thanking Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham for holding “one of the best set of hearings that I’ve participated in.” The two then shook hands and even hugged.
Liberals are furious that Feinstein wasn’t harder on Barrett and that she praised Lindsey Graham, and now they’re demanding that she step down from her position on the Judiciary Committee.
Probably @SenFeinstein's last act on the Committee. Daring to hug @LindseyGrahamSC after #ACB Hearing. After saying this: ""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." pic.twitter.com/AmGO9KbYM7

Brian Fallon, Hillary Clinton’s campaign spokesman and now executive director of Demand Justice, is demanding that Feinstein step down in a tweet including a screencap of the two hugging and linking to a piece from Action Network.

Just asked a Dem senator about Demand Justice's call for Dianne Feinstein to step down as ranking Dem on the Judiciary Committee after her handling of Barrett's hearing.
"It's very hard to watch a colleague in decline. That this is occurring publicly is even harder."

Norman Ornstein, a resident scholar at the American Enterprise Institute, is also saying her praise of Graham is a clear sign that she should step down.
Diane Feinstein praising Barrett, and then inexplicably praising Graham, is a clear sign that she should not remain as the top Democrat on the Judiciary Committee.

Civility is now racist lol ? https://t.co/d3737IRAtI

Norman, who I doubt has not had the benefit of walking through the wreckage of a civil war as I have, should not normalize incivility.
Normalizing the conception of mere opponents as the enemy is dangerous, stupid and evil.
Stop it. https://t.co/VEHlmhemHr

Brian Tyler Cohen has some thing on YouTube we’ve not seen but he does have more than a quarter-million Twitter followers.
Here's Sen. Feinstein hugging Lindsey Graham after the SCOTUS hearing concluded, in case you were wondering about the extent to which Democrats need to elect people actually capable of fighting.pic.twitter.com/V5Od6dQ3T4

People who only want to destroy people who they disagree with are the reason we're as fucked up as we are today.
Fuck you Brian https://t.co/gbRqlZrhsx
