DIANNE’S NEW DEMAND: After Kavanaugh, Feinstein Sets Sights on 2020 Census

Sen. Dianne Feinstein settled on her next major battle with the White House Wednesday evening; “demanding” the Trump administration “explain” their decision to include citizenship status on the upcoming 2020 census.

Feinstein posted her request on social media just days after the Senate voted to confirm Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court; writing “The Trump administration’s decision to add a citizenship question to the 2020 Census is a cynical ploy to discourage participation. States with diverse communities like California stand to suffer the most.”

“We’re demanding that the Commerce Department explain what led to the inclusion of this question on the census. We can’t allow politics to compromise the information used to determine congressional representation and federal funding,” she added.

Feinstein made international headlines just weeks ago when she revealed an 11th hour accusation against Judge Kavanaugh; nearly derailing his confirmation process at the last minute.
