Donald Trump Jr. recently took to his Twitter account and posted: “According to reports, Senator Dianne Feinstein of California has just passed away.”

U.S. Sen. Dianne Feinstein of California passed away at the age of 90, her office confirmed Friday.

Feinstein, a Democrat, was the oldest member of the Senate, where she served since 1992. She held her seat in the chamber longer than any other woman, and any senator from California.

She passed away Thursday night at her home in Washington, D.C.

“There are few women who can be called senator, chairman, mayor, wife, mom and grandmother. Senator Feinstein was a force of nature who made an incredible impact on our country and her home state,” her chief of staff James Sauls said in a statement.

Feinstein’s death ended a boundary-pushing political career that spanned more than half a century and was studded with major legislative achievements on issues including gun control and the environment.

During the latter years of Senator Feinstein’s tenure, she encountered noticeable challenges with her health and memory. These obstacles gave rise to a disagreement with certain members of the Democratic Party who opined that she should step down. In light of this situation, Senator Feinstein has declared her intention to retire at the conclusion of her present term in January 2025.

Feinstein’s death leaves it to Gov. Gavin Newsom to appoint a temporary successor. Three leading Democrats are seeking the seat, Reps. Barbara Lee, Katie Porter, and Adam Schiff.

Newsom in a statement called Feinstein “a political giant, whose tenacity was matched by her grace.”

“She broke down barriers and glass ceilings, but never lost her belief in the spirit of political cooperation,” he said. “There is simply nobody who possessed the poise, gravitas, and fierceness of Dianne Feinstein.”

“Jennifer and I are deeply saddened by her passing, and we will mourn with her family in this difficult time.”
