It may be time for U.S. Sen. Dianne Feinstein to retire. She is making her fellow pro-abortion legislators look bad.
Even the liberal mainstream media couldn’t give the California Senator a pass earlier this week when she struggled to mention even one accomplishment of her favorite presidential candidate, Hillary Clinton.
During an interview with The San Francisco Chronicle on Tuesday, Feinstein was asked to name one of Clinton’s signature accomplishments during her time in the U.S. Senate, according to the Free Beacon.
“Golly, I forget what bills she’s been part of or authored,” Feinstein told the newspaper’s editorial board.
Feinstein, who recently endorsed Clinton for president, told the newspaper that she was caught off guard by the question.
“I didn’t really come prepared to discuss this,” she said. “But she’s been a good senator. There are things outside of bills that you can do, and I know that she’s done them for her state.”
According to the report, Feinstein then directed an aid to “get on Google” and find some of Clinton’s accomplishments.
But, the Free Beacon noted, Clinton had very few accomplishments during her tenure in the Senate from 2001 to 2009:
Feinstein, who was elected in 1992, said that Clinton did not work in the Senate long enough “to achieve the degree of seniority that affords her the ability to do more.” The California lawmaker did argue that Clinton helped New York City secure $20 billion to rebuild after the 9/11 terror attacks.
During her eight years in Congress, three bills that Clinton sponsored became law. The statutes were noncontroversial and established a historic site, a post office, and highway in New York. Clinton also cosponsored 74 bills that ultimately became law.
Feinstein meanwhile authored and passed the 1994 assault weapons ban within the first two years of her time in the Senate, The Chronicle noted.
Feinstein’s comments did what the mainstream media often fails to do – expose the truth about Clinton’s record. They have consistently given Clinton a pass on her radical stance on abortion which is out of touch with most Americans, while attacking pro-life candidates.
If elected, Clinton has promised to overturn the Hyde Amendment, forcing Americans to fund abortions with tax dollars; and she openly opposes restrictions on late-term abortions when babies are viable outside the womb. Most Americans don’t stand with Clinton on these issues.
Feinstein, too, has a radical pro-abortion position. Feinstein voted against partial birth abortion bans in 1995, 1997, 2000, and 2003. Likewise, Clinton defended partial-birth abortion earlier this year in an interview.
