Senate Judiciary Committee Under Fire Again

The Senate Judiciary Committee comes under fire again this week, yesterday it was by Senator Orrin Hatch and today, in an article in the Wall Street Journal. The article describes the current situation with the Senate Judiciary Committee and chairman Patrick Leahy’s role in holding up judicial nominees. The WSJ interviewed ranking member Arlen Specter and describes him as “spitting mad” about what Leahy is doing and discusses his intentions of following through with his prior threat to “shut down the Senate” until President Bush’s nominees get hearings.
