Eleanor Holmes Norton
Yesterday at the Senate Judiciary Committee’s #monstermarkup, I led @OfficialCBC members in protest of Trump’s nominees. Thomas Farr, nominated to sit as a federal judge in North Carolina, has spent his career opposing and denying African Americans the right to vote. Eric Dreiband was nominated as the Assistant Attorney General for Civil Rights after having made his reputation as a corporate attorney opposing the protection of many of the rights he would administer. During his first year in office, Trump nominated only one African American for a lifetime federal judgeship. These courts determine our rights far more than Congress or the president. Time to wake the country up!
