Neera Tanden is back, in a new WH job that doesn't require Senate confirmation https://t.co/QybAah88HO

Neera will be a progressive voice inside Joe Biden's White House. This is a good outcome. https://t.co/oRGkBWTD4E

SCOOP from me & @NickSurgey: In new leaked video dark money group Heritage Action brags to top donors about writing “model legislation” making it harder to vote in GA TX IA FL AZ. This is proof of massive coordinated right-wing voter suppression campaign https://t.co/BeBhav73un

Whip Manchin. End the filibuster. Pass the "For the People" Act. By Labor Day. https://t.co/SNzsMzewPg

The Senate Judiciary Committee has added 5 of President Biden's judicial nominees to its agenda today. A vote to advance their nominations will likely be postponed to next week, teeing up confirmation as soon as the week of May 24. https://t.co/DS35PriUAE

@floridalawwoman I can't speak about all of them, but Eunice Lee (the Second Circuit nominee) is the real deal. 24 years doing public defense, and by all accounts, stellar in every respect.

The White House generally tends to have more say on Circuit picks than do home-state senators, but @SenSchumer gets pretty involved in 2nd Circuit selections, and deserves credit along with Biden for this great pick of Eunice Lee. https://t.co/BXjqu5OW0j

The brilliant Eunice Lee would be the first public defender to ever serve on the Second Circuit. https://t.co/9E5S99io9O

The Biden White House continues to impress with their Circuit Court nominees. Eunice Lee for the 2nd Circuit seat out of New York is a federal public defender and Veronica Rossman, for the 10th Circuit, is a federal defender in Colorado. Great picks https://t.co/zVImk9EpXF

Never forget that a huge reason we’re having this war over voting access is that John Roberts invented a totally new constitutional principle out of whole cloth so he could kill the Voting Rights Act for no good reason.

While we were in the streets, they had our backs in the courtroom. These lawyers stood up and fought back against Trump's attacks on our democracy. Now, we need to fight to get them nominated and confirmed to be judges. https://t.co/gN1X6DeIlv

A great ad that highlights so many potential wonderful nominees. It is so important (IMHO) that we appoint/nominate lawyers who fought for democracy! https://t.co/WNEUGJMHq4

The Supreme Court made new voting restrictions possible with a 5-4 partisan decision. & they let unlimited dark money flow into politics. & they okayed partisan gerrymandering. By 5-4 partisan decisions. All their partisan political decisions helped Republican political mischief.

Big news: Facebook deplatformed LifeSiteNews this week for gross distribution of COVID disinformation. This didn't happen because of their good will. @NARAL @mmfa @HRC @glaad worked to document these transgressions and share them with Facebook. And I have some thoughts.🧵

Feinstein says Breyer’s retirement would be a “great loss.” On whether he should step aside? “My general belief is if a person is serving with integrity and working hard and producing for whatever the constituency is, that's what these jobs are all about.” https://t.co/i7BQBzrV2Q

Justice Breyer is wonderful - on SCOTUS & before that on 1st Circuit. He once judged the New England regional finals of the National Moot Court competition and picked yours truly as "best oralist," so I have a soft spot there. But for goodness' sake HE SHOULD RETIRE NOW. https://t.co/ePYZvXQL4S

I respect and admire both Sen. Feinstein and Justice Breyer. In their shoes, I might want to hang on to my seat, too, thinking I’ve got a lot left to contribute. But I’m not in their shoes. So with great respect and admiration, I can objectively say this: It’s time to step down.

Because we all know that Feinstein has an excellent read on when retirement is appropriate. https://t.co/2NFUc3RqEk
