“They’ll make her available to all 100 U.S. senators,” said Daniel Goldberg, legal director at the Alliance For Justice, a progressive judicial advocacy group that has been in frequent contact with the White House. “It will be up to senators themselves whether they want to meet with her, but hopefully they will.”
Sen. Joe Manchin, a West Virginia Democrat and key swing vote, said in a statement Friday that he wants to meet with Brown Jackson before he decides whether he’ll support her confirmation.
Goldberg said he anticipates meetings with senators to begin next week and for the hearing to take place in late March. The committee will make a recommendation to the full Senate following the hearing.
