WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) made the following remarks on the Senate floor regarding the need to confirm more of the president’s well-qualified nominees, including the nominee to serve on the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals, Eric Miller:
“This week the Senate will resume our work in the personnel business by considering yet another of President Trump’s qualified judicial nominees. Eric Miller has been chosen to sit on the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals, and one look at his legal career to this point says he’s well-prepared to do so.
“Mr. Miller is a graduate of Harvard and the University of Chicago, where he served on the Law Review editorial staff. He has held prominent clerkships on both the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals and the U.S. Supreme Court. And his record of public service at the Justice Department and in private practice reflects a legal mind of the highest caliber. So I hope each of my colleagues will soon join me in voting to advance the first circuit court nominee of this new Congress. And that will be 31 since President Trump took office.”
