The Senate Judiciary Committee approved the nomination of Judge Merrick Garland to serve as President Biden’s Attorney General, by a vote of 15-7. Garland is set up to easily be confirmed by the full Senate, a vote that could be held as early as this week. 


A handful of Republican Senators including Chuck Grassley (IA), Thom Tillis (NC), Lindsey Graham (SC), and John Cornyn (TX) voted with Democrats to advance Garland’s nomination out of committee. Republican Senators Ted Cruz (TX), Mike Lee (UT), Josh Hawley (MO), Ben Sasse (NE), Tom Cotton (AR), John Kennedy (LA), and Marsha Blackburn (TN) all opposed Garland's nomination in committee.


The hundreds of questions fielded by Garland, and his "subsequent answers" did not satisfy all Republican Senators, including Cruz, who claimed that Garland would not answer "virtually anything."
