Description

WASHINGTON Minority members of the Senate Judiciary Committee are prepared to "express their concerns" Thursday about President Bush's decision to recess appoint Charles Pickering (search) to the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals, Democratic sources on the committee told Fox News. Even as Democrats prepare to cooperate on the Senate floor and decline to filibuster the long-awaited omnibus spending bill, four Democrats on the panel are planning to bring up the issue of Pickering's appointment at the top of a hearing to confirm several non-controversial Bush nominees, the sources said. Sens. Patrick Leahy of Vermont, the ranking member of the panel; Dick Durbin of Illinois; Dianne Feinstein of California and possibly Edward Kennedy of Massachusetts are all expected to make opposing statements, said the sources.
