The newest Democrat to demand the resignation of Senator Dianne Feinstein of blue California is reportedly a member of the far-left “Squad” of progressive politicians.
Rep. Ro Khanna, D-Calif., a fellow Democrat, continued to urge Feinstein to step down gracefully, so Michigan Rep. Rashida Tlaib Retweeted him on Twitter.
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. https://t.co/99oegbg4OR

Tlaib criticized the senator from California for skipping votes on the Senate floor, which allowed the GOP to advance legislation through the upper house.
Tlaib is the most recent Democrat to demand on Feinstein to step down following her lengthy tenure serving as California’s senator.
People who want Feinstein to leave the Senate have cited the senator’s advanced age, poor health, and questionable mental capacity as justifications.
Khanna and Rep. Dean Phillips, D-Minn., both demanded that the California senator leave the upper chamber earlier this month.
Feinstein, 89, who has been a senator for more than 30 years, was hospitalized last month for shingles and has experienced various health problems, including alarming claims about her mental state.
Before stating that she would retire once her current term ended, she had already received demands for her resignation.
