Graham Supports Mukasey for Attorney General
WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) today voted in support of Judge Michael Mukasey to serve as Attorney General. Mukasey was voted out of the Senate Judiciary Committee by a vote of 11-8.
Graham made this statement after the vote.
“I’m very pleased Judge Mukasey was reported out of committee. He is the right person at the right time to lead the Department of Justice.
“All who have appeared before him as a judge speak of his independence, judicial temperament and experience. He’s an expert on the legal issues surrounding the War on Terror and will provide leadership to a rudderless Department of Justice.
“Judge Mukasey is part of the solution, not the problem, when it comes to interpreting our obligations under the law. I think he’s a fine man in every sense of the word and hope he receives swift confirmation by the full Senate.”
