Comments that California Senator Dianne Feinstein made on Friday to a group of protesters  in which she suggested that U.S. President Donald Trump will "get himself out" of the presidency, have raised questions over exactly what she meant.

As reported by Los Angeles Times reporter Javier Panzar, who also posted the video on Twitter, Feinstein was asked how the president could be removed from office. “We have a lot of people looking at this, technical people,” she said. “And I think he is going to get himself out.”

The Politico website said Feinstein seemed to be saying that he might disqualify himself "over potential constitutional breaches and conflicts of interest," but the politics website noted that the U.S. senator refrained from suggesting that Trump be impeached. And asked whether Trump had committed acts that would be grounds for impeachment, Feinstein replied: ""I can't answer that right now."
