 (Washington, DC) — Democratic Senator Dianne Feinstein’s praise for Republican Lindsey Graham is drawing backlash from liberal groups. The California lawmaker called the Amy Coney Barrett confirmation hearings “one of the best” she’s taken part in. She also thanked the South Carolina senator and gave him a hug when it was over. But, some critics were upset because of the Democratic push against nominating a Supreme Court judge during an election year.
