Pleased to announce a bipartisan agreement to expedite Merrick Garland’s confirmation as the next Attorney General. After unprecedented Republican obstruction, Judge Garland will finally get the hearing & vote he deserves. Hearing to occur 2/22 & 2/23. Vote in Committee on 3/1.

It’s long overdue, but Merrick Garland will finally get a hearing and will be confirmed as our next Attorney General.

There is no excuse for Senate Judiciary Republicans to delay Judge Merrick Garland’s nomination to be the next Attorney General. I’m calling on Sen. Graham—who is still Chair of the Committee even though his party is in the minority—to end this delay & schedule this hearing now.
