Great news, the Harold Koh cloture vote was a success earlier today and the vote on his nomination to be legal adviser to the State Department will likely be held tomorrow. It will be refreshing for the American people to have such a wonderful legal mind at the State Department, particularly in light of recent international events. Yet, the Office of Legal Counsel in the Department of Justice is still waiting for leadership. Why isn’t Dawn Johnsen’s confirmation moving forward? With the support of both home-state senators and widely respected experts on both the left and right, and all of the important issues facing the executive branch – especially the Department of Justice – it is time for this highly qualified nominee to be confirmed.
