Rep. Ro Khanna (D-CA) slammed Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), the former Speaker of the House, for suggesting this week that calls for Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) to resign were rooted in sexism.

Feinstein, 89, has been battling health issues in recent years and was hospitalized last month after being diagnosed with a case of shingles and has continued to experience issues related to infection.

Khanna was the first major Democrat to call for Feinstein to resign, saying that while she “has had a lifetime of public service, it is obvious she can no longer fulfill her duties.”

“Not speaking out undermines our credibility as elected representatives of the people,” he added.

Pelosi responded by telling reporters that she found the situation “interesting.” “I don’t know what political agendas are at work that are going after Senator Feinstein in that way,” she said. “I’ve never seen them go after a man who was sick in the Senate in that way.”

Khanna joined Fox News’ “America’s Newsroom” on Thursday where he discussed his call for Feinstein to resign, saying that while he has a lot of respect for her, “I don’t know any other job where if you’re unable to fulfill your duties, you can continue to have the position.”

“So I think she should do the dignified thing,” he said. “I respect her years of public service and she should know when it’s time to step aside.”

When asked about Pelosi’s comments, Khanna said, “This has nothing to do with gender.”

“I know she’s very much for Adam Schiff getting that seat, but I don’t question people’s political motives,” he said. “This is simply about whether someone can do their jobs.”
