NEW: The Senate just confirmed Biden's judicial nominee Nina Morrison, putting someone onto the federal bench with the extraordinary background of having helped to free dozens of innocent people from prison and death row. https://t.co/jGQXpWDQ2l

the answer to "why don't the democrats tell manchin and sinema to eat shit and go to hell" is: "Morrison, 52, has spent the last 20 years being the senior litigation counsel at the New York-based Innocence Project" https://t.co/6le7EIQs9D

the biden admin successfully seated a 52-year old district court judge who has *personally* worked to free more than 30 wrongfully convicted people from prison and she will remain there for life unless she moves up in the ranks.
if they didn’t have manchin and sinema on board for this vote, they would not have gotten collins, murkowski or graham.
i don’t really care about “giving biden credit”, but they have earned it when it comes to their judiciary picks, and that should matter a *hell of a lot more* than it does to people who claim to care about fairness and justice.
Despite — I’m sure the man would want this on the record — Tom Cotton’s best efforts to block her:
That a person living with some of the highest moral, Biblical, American, democratic principles—gets confronted by the gross stupidity of one the pathetic ogres of negative polarization—is such a contrast to the shining courage it takes to fight for truth and justice. pic.twitter.com/N1qc92n4JO
