Joe Biden wants to get his flunkies into office as soon as possible. Unfortunately for him, Congress is not cooperating.
You’d think it would just be Republicans slowing down his efforts. Nope! Democrats have created a mess that has prevented Biden from really implementing his administration.
Because of the quagmire, Lindsey Graham is stepping in to put Biden into his place. His AG pick, Merrick Garland, could not get into the Supreme Court.
Now, Graham is making it harder for him to get a cabinet position.
From Biz Pac Review:
With an impeachment trial that 45 GOP senators see as unconstitutional set to begin on Feb. 9, Democrats want to pencil Garland in on Feb. 8.
In his own letter, Graham noted the “highly unusual” request and reminded Durbin that the last five attorney general nominees received two day hearings.
“I agree completely that Judge Garland deserves a hearing — even a prompt one,” Graham wrote. “However, as will be more fully stated, a one-day hearing as you are proposing the day before the impeachment trial of a former president is insufficient. The last five nominees to be attorney general all received two-day hearings.”
Graham shamed the Democrats for trying to rush through Garland’s hearing. They wanted to fast-track his confirmation after only one day.
Normally, there is a two-day process that allows the Senate to fully vet a candidate. But, thanks to the left’s mad effort to impeach and convict Donald Trump, that’s just not possible.
Because Graham is still, for now, head of the Judiciary Committee, he has the power to deny Garland’s hearing.
The Senate deserves to question him fully, over a period of two days. Hey, they could have done that by now, had Democrats not wasted time on this second impeachment.
Republicans voted against even holding an impeachment trial, but the left (and five RINOs) refused to do the same.
They wanted this bogus trial, they have to live with the consequences.
It is likely that Garland will eventually be confirmed. But Republicans deserve to grill the candidate and see just what his positions are (especially in regards to Hunter Biden).
Democrats won’t be able to gloss over the process.
- Democrats and Joe Biden wanted to rush Merrick Garland’s AG appointment.
- Lindsey Graham put the brakes on it, over the impeachment trial.
- Garland won’t be vetted until the Senate can have a two-day hearing.
