Catholic League president Bill Donohue comments on the status of a nominee to the federal bench:
Over four months ago, President Trump nominated Wisconsin attorney Gordon Giampietro to a seat on the federal district court. It is being held up because Wisconsin Senator Tammy Baldwin has failed to turn in her blue slip on his nomination. Giampietro has unfairly come under fire for simply voicing the Catholic understanding of marriage and the family.
I am asking Senator Chuck Grassley, chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, to begin hearings on Giampietro’s nomination. He does not have to wait until Baldwin acts (that is because the requirement that the Trump administration consult with both home senators has been met.)
