WASHINGTON (AP) – Supreme Court nominee Merrick Garland has submitted a questionnaire detailing his experience to the Senate Judiciary Committee on Tuesday, taking another step in the White House’s effort to break a Senate blockade on his nomination.
Although Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Charles Grassley has said he won’t consider Garland’s nomination, the White House had him fill out the questionnaire anyway. The committee posted the document online, as is routine with all nominations.
In the document, Garland lists basic information such as education, memberships and a list of all of the jobs he’s had.
Among his most significant rulings, Garland lists a case that upheld a ban on campaign contributions from federal contractors. He also calls the prosecution of Timothy McVeigh for the Oklahoma City bombing one of his most significant experiences.
