Feinstein Rejects Another Judicial Nominee for Religious Views

Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee want to block a Trump administration judicial nominee because of his conservative Christian views.

President Donald Trump tapped Jeff Mateer as a lifetime federal judge. But comments he has made on same-sex marriage and transgender rights are upsetting Democrats Sen. Dianne Feinstein of California and Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse of Rhode Island, according to The Dallas Morning News.

“There’s no question these views cast serious doubt on his ability to fairly enforce federal law and treat people impartially,” Feinstein said in a statement.

Article VI, section 3, of the United States Constitution provides, in relevant part: “… but no religious test shall ever be required as a qualification to any office or public trust under the United States.”  Senator Feinstein, who took an oath to support the Constitution when she was sworn in as a Senator, appears to be laying herself open to impeachment.
