Ranking Member Graham to President Biden: Withdraw Third Circuit Nominee

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina), Ranking Member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, today urged President Joe Biden to withdraw Adeel Mangi’s nomination for the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit.

“It has been a long-standing position of mine to give great deference to executive appointments, particularly judicial appointments, for both parties. However, it is clear to me that concerns about this nomination are widespread, not just among Republicans in the Senate.

“I urge President Biden to seriously listen to these concerns and withdraw Mr. Mangi’s nomination.”

Background on Mr. Mangi’s nomination:

Adeel Mangi’s nomination to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit is opposed by over a dozen law enforcement organizations, including The Police Conference of New York which represents more than 50,000 professional police officers. His nomination is also opposed by every Republican on the Senate Judiciary Committee, ten Republican Members of Congress representing constituents in the Third Circuit, and several Jewish organizations.
