Statement by the President on the Withdrawal of the Nomination of Caitlin Halligan
Today, I accepted Caitlin Halligan’s request to withdraw as a nominee for the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit. I am deeply disappointed that even after nearly two and a half years, a minority of Senators continued to block a simple up-or-down vote on her nomination. This unjustified filibuster obstructed the majority of Senators from expressing their support. I am confident that with Caitlin’s impressive qualifications and reputation, she would have served with distinction.
The D.C. Circuit is considered the Nation’s second-highest court, but it now has more vacancies than any other circuit court. This is unacceptable. I remain committed to filling these vacancies, to ensure equal and timely access to justice for all Americans.
Presidential Withdrawal Sent to the Senate
WITHDRAWAL SENT TO THE SENATE:
This sickens me. President Of The United States, Barack Hussein Obama, has not the right to select his appointees for positions he deems these people qualified because of racist, ignorant dumbass Congressmen & Senators obstructing The Presidents choices.
Every past POTUS has had smooth sailing when it comes to picking personnel for their cabinet.
Except this Black American President.
Remember when the Senate approved Clarence Thomas?
There is no reason Ms. Caitlin Halligan should NOT be U.S. Court Of Appeals For The District Of Columbia Circuit Judge.
