Dianne Feinstein, a long-serving Democratic US senator from California and gun control advocate who spearheaded the first federal assault weapons ban and documented the CIA's torture of foreign terrorism suspects, has died at 90, a source familiar with the news says..
Feinstein's office did not immediately respond to a request for comment on the news, first reported by the Punchbowl news outlet.
Feinstein was a Washington DC trail-blazer who among other accomplishments became the first woman to head the influential Senate Intelligence Committee.
During almost 31 years in Senate she amassed a moderate-to-progressive record, sometimes drawing scorn from the left.
Feinstein joined the Senate in 1992 after winning a special election and was re-elected five times including in 2018, along the way becoming the longest-serving woman senator ever.
Feinstein's political career was shaped by guns.
She became San Francisco's mayor in 1978 upon the assassinations of mayor George Moscone and supervisor Harvey Milk.
Feinstein was president of the San Francisco County Board of Supervisors when Moscone and Milk were gunned down by a former supervisor, Dan White.
After hearing the gunshots, she rushed to Milk's office.
While searching for his pulse, her finger found a bullet hole.
Feinstein said the horror of that experience never left her and she went on to author the federal ban on military-style assault weapons that lasted from 1994 until its 2004 expiration.
"This is a gun-happy nation, and everybody can have their gun," Feinstein said after a May 2021 mass shooting in her home state as she lamented years of congressional failure to pass new gun control laws to guard against "the killing of innocents".
Feinstein led a renewed effort for tougher gun laws after a 2012 massacre of 20 children and six adults at a Connecticut elementary school.
The legislation encountered furious opposition from Republicans and gun rights advocates and failed in the Senate.
Health issues slowed Feinstein late in her career, when she was the oldest senator at the time.
She announced in February 2023 that she would not seek re-election the following year and was sidelined from Congress for three months ending in May of that year after suffering from shingles and complications including encephalitis and Ramsay Hunt Syndrome.
As Intelligence Committee chair, Feinstein overcame resistance from national security officials and Republican politicians in 2014 as her panel released a report detailing the CIA's secret overseas detention and interrogation of foreign terrorism suspects following the September 11, 2001 hijacked plane attacks on the United States.
"The CIA's actions are a stain on our values and our history," Feinstein said, defending the release of a report that revealed CIA use of "coercive interrogation techniques in some cases amounting to torture" on at least 119 detainees.
"History will judge us," Feinstein added, "by our commitment to a just society governed by law and the willingness to face an ugly truth and say, 'Never again.'"
The report detailed interrogation practices such as the simulated drowning method called waterboarding, sleep deprivation, painful stress positions, "rectal feeding" and "rectal hydration".
Despite CIA claims that the practices had saved lives, the report concluded that such methods had played no role in disrupting any terrorism plots, capturing any militant leaders or finding Osama Bin Laden, who was killed by US forces in Pakistan in 2011.
The late Arizona Senator John McCain, tortured as a prisoner of war in Vietnam, praised Feinstein's release of the report and said, "Most of all, I know the use of torture compromises what most distinguishes us from our enemies".
Feinstein defended US surveillance programs exposed in 2013 by a National Security Agency contractor named Edward Snowden, a leak she called "an act of treason".
"It's called protecting America," Feinstein said of the NSA electronic surveillance of telephone data and Internet communications that critics called a vast government over-reach.
During Republican George W Bush's presidency, Feinstein backed the 2002 Iraq war resolution but later voiced regret.
She supported Bush's Patriot Act to help track terrorism suspects but criticised him for authorising spying on US residents without court approval.
