Pete Jensen, who has been the chief nominations counsel to the Senate Judiciary Committee for the past two years — weathering countless controversial appellate court nominees and two and a half Supreme Court nominees — will be leaving in August to clerk for Judge Thomas Griffith on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit. Like Griffith, Jensen received his undergraduate degree from Brigham Young University, where Griffith had most recently been general counsel. “I first met Pete in my confirmation process and was really impressed with him,” says Griffith. “But when I started making inquiries into whether he’d be interested in doing this, Pete was highly recommended by a number of people I trusted.” Also leaving the committee is Brett Tolman, chief counsel for its crime and terrorism unit. Tolman, who beat out Attorney General Alberto Gonzales’ chief of staff, Kyle Sampson, for the job, was nominated on June 9 to be U.S. attorney for the District of Utah.
