Hatch On Judges

Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Orrin Hatch defends his efforts to confirm Bush’s judicial nominees in this article from The Hill. Conservatives remain unconvinced. Most recently, it appears that Senator Hatch plans to fast-track the confirmation of longtime friend and fellow Mormon Thomas Griffith to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit. Hatch dismisses criticism of the move as merely “anti-Mormon prejudice.”
