“Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D) seemed to indicate Friday that she expects President ... Trump may disqualify himself from office over potential constitutional breaches and conflicts of interest. Surrounded by a group of mostly liberal protesters outside a Los Angeles fundraiser, Feinstein fielded a slew of questions on her feelings about what the left has alleged are Trump's constitutional breaches.”

“How are we going to get him out?" the questioner asked.

Feinstein replied, "I think he's gonna get himself out.”

On whether Trump has committed impeachable offenses, Feinstein said, "I can't answer that right now." (Politico)

GORUSCH FIGHT. Ahead of Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch’s confirmation hearings, Feinstein “is labeling him an extremist on such issues as worker protections and reproductive rights.”

“As a federal appeals court judge, Gorsuch ‘has consistently sided with employers and corporate interests,” Feinstein said, marking “her first critical comments on President Trump’s selection.” Feinstein is the highest-ranking Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee. (SF Gate)
