Feinstein Caught on a Hot Mic

During the Senate session regarding Judge Amy Comey Barrett's confirmation to the Supreme court, Diane Feinstein had a Hot Mic moment. Feinstein was overheard saying, "She's been pro-life for some time I suspect it's deeply personal and comes with her religion." The comment was caught on C-span that did not turn off their mic's during downtimes.

"Article VI specifies that “no religious Test shall ever be required as a Qualification to any Office or public Trust under the United States.” This prohibition, commonly known as the No Religious Test Clause, banned a longstanding form of religious discrimination practiced both in England and in the United States."

Judge Barret was propelled to fame during her confirmation to the 7th circuit court when she was attacked by Senator Diane Feinstein for her religious beliefs claiming "the dogma lives loudly with you."
