Last quote by Dianne Feinstein

The director of the FBI must be a leader who has the integrity and strength that will enable him to withstand any attempts at political interference. Will Mr. Wray and the FBI pursue investigations with independence and vigor regardless of who may be implicated? Will he stand up for what is right and lawful? Will be tell the president 'no' if improperly directed to pursue or end certain investigations?feedback

We'll see what the future brings. This may portend that (Flynn) faces something serious.feedback

May 22 2017

I really think that rather than have all these memorandums and issues circulating around, that we need to put the facts before the American people. Did the president fire Comey because of his investigation and was he worried about what the investigation might conclude? If so, that borders on a very serious charge. And it's got to come from Director Comey himself.feedback

May 17 2017

Clearly, this is not the case.feedback

May 14 2017 - Trump Presidency

President Trump and the White House have presented an ever-changing narrative on the rationale for the firing of FBI Director Comey. This triggers a need for the Judiciary Committee to hold hearings and get to the bottom of this. This is a very serious matter, with significant implications for the rule of law and the strength of our democracy.feedback

May 11 2017

That surprised me, that a guy as highly prized as Rosenstein, on the basis of legal talent, professionalism in the department, would pull things out of a newspaper and quote them, in terms of somebody else's opinion of Comey. It means to me we really have to have him in and talk to him, because, wow, I mean, I could have written it.feedback

May 11 2017 - Trump Presidency

I had been hopeful that we could have a line of activity that's going to bring a very divided country together. The problem out there is that people are so divided.feedback

May 07 2017 - American politics

Women's health is a big part of this and women are a majority of the population, and their health interests deserve to be contemplated in any reform.feedback

May 07 2017

What my position is and I believe this is the Democratic position: Don't repeal Obamcare. Take those sections, like the individual market, which has some problems in it, and deal with it and fix those sections, and it can be done. I'm really very worried that in the rush to judgement we create a major health care problem for people.feedback

May 05 2017 - IPhone

I was so struck when San Bernardino happened and you made overtures to allow that device to be opened, and then the FBI had to spend $900,000 to hack it open. And as I subsequently learned of some of the reason for it, there were good reasons to get into that device.feedback

May 03 2017

This move by leadership and appropriators cedes portions of this authority to the executive branch without a public debate.

It simply cannot be the case, as it was with USA Gymnastics, where member's reports of sex abuse were only recognized if they were made in writing.feedback

Mr. Friedman takes extreme positions that will move the two parties further from peace.feedback

Mar 22 2017

That's a good line to recess on.feedback

Mar 22 2017 - Supreme Court

For the life of me, I really don't know when you're there what you're going to do with it. As you say, this isn't text, this is real life. Young women take everything for granted today. All of that could be struck out with one decision.feedback

Mar 22 2017

What worries me is you have been very much able to avoid any specificity like no one I have ever seen before. And maybe that's a virtue, I don't know. But for us on this side, knowing where you stand on major questions of the day is really important to a vote 'aye,' and so that's why we pressed and pressed. This is real life, and young women take everything for granted today and all of that could be struck out with one decision.feedback

Mar 20 2017

We're going to try to put those pieces together so that the puzzle is complete and we have an understanding of what kind of a fifth vote will be going on the court. Voting rights. Right to choose. Guns. Corporate dollars in elections. Worker safety. Ability of federal agencies to regulate. All of the environmental issues – water, air.feedback

Director Comey admits 'the FBI cannot yet assess whether or not this material may be significant.' He cannot predict how long the investigation will take.
