Feinstein calls for deputy AG to name special prosecutor or resign
The Hill/by Jordain Carney
A second key Senate Democrat is calling on Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein to resign if he does not name a special prosecutor to handle the investigation into Russia's election interference.
Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) said in a statement that she supports "Senator Durbin’s call for Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein to resign if he is unwilling to appoint a special counsel.
These investigations are far too important to risk disruption, delay or interference."
Feinstein's comments were part of a larger statement calling for the Judiciary Committee to hold hearings on President Trump's decision to fire FBI Director James Comey. Feinstein is the ranking Democrat on the committee.
