The abuse of Senate rules to obstruct judicial and executive branch nominations must come to an end immediately.
President Obama has announced three nominees with superb credentials to fill the critical vacancies on the D.C. Circuit. Tell the Senate: No More Obstruction; Confirm the Nominees and Fill the D.C. Circuit NOW!
Act without delay to CONFIRM D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals nominees Cornelia Pillard, Patricia Ann Millet and Robert Leon Wilkins. Each one of these nominees has superb credentials, is well within the mainstream and is the definition of uncontroversial.
No more excuses. Fulfill your constitutional duty: Confirm these nominees and fill the vacancies on the D.C. Circuit.
