RINO Lindsey Graham Accused Of Fast-Tracking Biden’s Judicial Nominees

The Republican Party has been accused of playing politics with judicial nominations for years, but now there are accusations that Senate Judiciary Committee chairman Lindsey Graham (R-SC) is fast-tracking President Joe Biden’s judicial nominees. The accusations come from some Republican senators and conservative groups who say that Graham is attempting to reward Biden for his victory in the 2020 election.

The accusations come as the Senate Judiciary Committee is set to hold a hearing on the nomination of Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit. Jackson is the first of Biden’s judicial nominees to be considered by the Senate and she is expected to be confirmed.

Critics of Graham’s approach argue that he is attempting to rush the confirmation process for Biden’s nominees in order to reward the President for his electoral victory. They also argue that Graham is attempting to avoid a drawn-out confirmation process that could be used to delay or block the confirmation of Biden’s nominees.

“This is a blatant attempt to rush through President Biden’s judicial nominees,” said Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX). “It is a slap in the face to those of us who believe in the importance of the Senate’s constitutional advise and consent role in the confirmation process.”

Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) also criticized Graham’s approach, saying that he was attempting to “circumvent the Senate’s advice and consent role.”

“This is a dangerous precedent that could have long-term implications for the confirmation process,” Hawley said.

Conservative groups have also criticized Graham’s approach, with the Judicial Crisis Network accusing him of “trying to railroad through President Biden’s nominees.”

“This is an egregious violation of the Senate’s role in the confirmation process,” said Carrie Severino, the president of the Judicial Crisis Network. “The Senate should not be used as a rubber stamp for the President’s nominees.”

The accusations against Graham come as the Senate is set to consider a number of Biden’s judicial nominees. Biden has already nominated more than 50 judges to the federal bench and has indicated that he plans to nominate more.

The confirmation process for Biden’s nominees is expected to be a contentious one, as Republicans are likely to oppose many of his nominees. However, the accusations against Graham suggest that he is attempting to fast-track the process in order to avoid a drawn-out confirmation battle.

It remains to be seen whether Graham’s approach will be successful, but it is clear that his actions have sparked a debate about the Senate’s role in the confirmation process. While some Republicans have criticized Graham’s approach, others have defended him, arguing that he is simply following the rules of the Senate.

Ultimately, it is up to the Senate to decide whether Graham’s approach is appropriate. However, the accusations against him suggest that he is attempting to fast-track Biden’s judicial nominees in order to reward the President for his electoral victory. Whether this approach is successful remains to be seen, but it is clear that it has sparked a debate about the Senate’s role in the confirmation process.
