Judiciary Committee Vote on Attorney General Nomination Democratic members of the Senate Judiciary Committee delayed a vote on whether to send to the full Senate Senator Jeff Sessions' (R-AL) nomination to be attorney general in the Trump administration. During the hearing they questioned whether Senator Sessions, who was one of President Trump’s most vocal supporters during the election, would be able to say no to the president when his actions are unconstitutional, and then refused to attend the scheduled vote. Committee Chair Chuck Grassley (R-IA) rescheduled the vote for the following morning.

Approximately three hours and 10 minutes into the hearing Senator Grassley noted the absence of a quorum and declared the hearing “at ease” and requested the sergeant-at-arms to bring committee members back. After 32 minutes, the hearing resumed with more statements from senators. close
