“I am pleased that President Bush has moved quickly to nominate a new Attorney General.
As a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, I am looking forward to the confirmation process and to the opportunity to question Judge Mukasey.
I want to ensure that he will provide the leadership that is necessary to return the
professionalism and independence to the Department of Justice.”
