Now Feinstein supports a filibuster because she does not agree with the nominee’s nomination.
Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) said that to filibuster a Supreme Court nominee, “you really have to have something out there whether it’s gross moral turpitude or something that comes to the surface,” during in an interview on Face the Nation in 2006.
CBS’ Bob Schieffer asked Feinstein if she would support filibustering then-nominee Judge Samuel Alito, about whom Feinstein had previously expressed concern.
“I do not see the likelihood of a filibuster…I don’t see those kinds of egregious things emerging that would justify a filibuster,” Feinstein told Schieffer.
Feinstein went on to say: “I think when it comes to filibustering a Supreme Court appointment, you really have to have something out there, whether it’s gross moral turpitude or something that comes to the surface. Now I mean, this is a man I might disagree with. That doesn’t mean he shouldn’t be on the court.”
Today however, Feinstein has succumbed to pressure from outside progressive groups and will support a filibuster of Supreme Court nominee Judge Neil Gorsuch because she disagrees with Gorsuch’s nomination.
