WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina), Ranking Member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, spoke on the Senate floor regarding judicial nominations.
- GRAHAM: “The White House decision to withdraw Michael Delaney from consideration for the First Circuit Court of Appeals was correct. I say this with no animosity toward Mr. Delaney, but his performance at the Senate Judiciary Committee answering questions regarding his handling of sensitive litigation was beyond the pale. This was disqualifying him, in my view, for such a consequential position.”
- GRAHAM: “Judicial nominees should expect to be questioned about their record and basic understanding of the law, and our Republican committee members will continue to do so.”
