President Joe Biden and leaders in Congress paid tribute Friday to the late Sen. Dianne Feinstein, the longest-serving female US senator in the country’s history. “She was a historic figure, a trailblazer for women and a great friend,” he said. Feinstein, a Democrat from California, died at the age of 90 on Thursday night at her home in Washington.
