Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) held an improvised “town hall” meeting on Friday with activists. She had been attending a fundraiser for her 2018 reelection campaign at a Los Angeles home, and was stopped right after leaving the building by a small crowd of liberal protesters.
She was asked by one of the activists about Pres. Donald Trump’s many conflicts of interests, and “how are we going to get him out” of the White House.

We have a lot of people looking at this, technical people. And I think he is going to get himself out. …
I think sending sons to another country to make a financial deal for his company and then have that covered with government expenses — I think those government expenses should not be allowed.
When another activist yelled at her to “take a stand,” Feinstein replied by saying, “Young man, I’ve made more stands in my lifetime than you are old by far.”
Feinstein later said she was committed to holding a town hall, to meet the demand of many in the crowd.
Several activists thanked her for taking the time to speak to them, and she was given a round of applause.
