California Sen. Dianne Feinstein alleges financial abuse in lawsuit over her husband’s estate

Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., has called to remove the trustees of her late husband’s estate, alleging that they committed financial abuse against her, according to a lawsuit filed earlier this month.

Feinstein’s late husband, Richard Blum, died last year. According to the lawsuit, he established a trust in the 1990s that was supposed to be created for the California lawmaker after his death. The trust was required to be funded with $5 million in cash and other securities, with Feinstein’s income distributed to her in frequent installments.
