    Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), a member of the Senate Judiciary Commitee, today said that Attorney General Albert Gonzales should step down. “I believe he should step down. And I don’t like saying this. This is not my natural personality at all,” Feinstein said on Fox News Sunday. “But I think the nation is not well served by this.
