Senate Republicans are still blocking Judge Merrick Garland’s nomination to be AG. Even after FBI Dir. Wray testified earlier this week about the rising threat of domestic terrorism. Our nation needs its top law enforcement official. It’s time to end the delay.
I was happy to support Merrick Garland as his nomination advanced out of the Judiciary Committee today. He's the type of leader @TheJusticeDept needs to reestablish its independence. Now it's up to the Senate to do the right thing and confirm Judge Garland as 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.
Retweet if you believe Judge Merrick Garland deserves fair consideration. #DoYourJobFriday
