OPPOSITION – Up for a vote by the Senate Judiciary Committee today are Steven Menashi for the Second Circuit and Halil “Sul” Ozerden for the Fifth Circuit, amid speculation as to whether either can get out of committee. Menashi, a White House lawyer, faces criticism from Democrats over his past writings, and for not answering a letter asking if he was involved in the alleged cover-up of Trump’s now infamous call with the Ukrainian president. Republicans were also openly frustrated during Menashi’s confirmation, as he declined to discuss what topics he gave legal advice on in the White House. Ozerden might face even steeper odds, as two GOP Senate Judiciary members say they’ll oppose his confirmation. The nominee has been criticized for his judicial approach to religious liberty cases.
