In Latest Controversy, Democratic Senators Ask Trump’s Nominees about Religion

First, it was Bernie Sanders, but now it’s Dianne Feinstein, Dick Durbin and Al Franken joining in on the religious litmus test [1] for government officials and judicial nominees.

Sanders asked a nominee to the Office of Personnel Management (OPM), Russell Vought, about his religious views during his hearing. At the time, conservatives were outraged by the appearance of a religious litmus test, which could be a violation of the Constitution.

Now, fellow Democrats Feinstein, Durbin and Franken grilled [1] one of President Donald Trump’s judicial nominees on her Catholic religion influencing her verdicts as a judge.

Would the Democrats ask a practicing Muslim similar questions? Most unlikely.
