The Senate confirmed another one of President Joe Biden’s nominees on Thursday night, after a controversial confirmation process with bipartisan hesitation. Despite being credibly accused of eco-terrorism and lying to the Senate, Tracy Stone-Manning to lead the Bureau of Land Management (BLM).

Senate Republicans urged Democrats to oppose Stone-Manning's confirmation, on account of her troubling history and lies to the Senate, unsuccessfully.

With mounting Democrat-caused crises in our country, Senate Democrats’ top priority is to confirm an eco-terrorist collaborator who lied to the Senate. Tracy Stone-Manning should never be the director of @BLMNational. Senate Republicans are united against this dangerous nominee.— Sen. John Barrasso (@SenJohnBarrasso) September 29, 2021

? Conspired w/ eco-terrorists
? Threatened federal employees
? Lied to Congress
This is the person the President nominated to lead @BLMNational. Confirming her would be a huge mistake. I urge my Democrat colleagues to vote no. https://t.co/weQiBVZEoZ
