Senate Judiciary Committee Ranking Member Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) said, "I hope that our witness today, former Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates, can shed additional lies."
When Sen. Josh Hawley (R-Mo.) asked Yates on the Page warrant applications, Feinstein came to Yates' defense. Hawley argued, "Nobody appears to know anything in this government, and yet somehow a federal court was deliberately and systematically misled. ... If this doesn't call for a cleaning of house at DOJ and the FBI, I don’t know what is." To which Feinstein said, "I see there’s no reason for those remarks. They’re inflammatory." She later said that she hopes Yates can shed additional lies.
