Chuck Grassley reassures Republicans he’s still against confirming Merrick Garland

Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, insisted on Wednesday that he doesn’t plan on having a confirmation hearing for Merrick Garland during Congress’ lame-duck session if Hillary Clinton wins the presidency. During a question-and-answer session at the Sioux City Rotary Club on Monday, Grassley said he was personally opposed to having hearings if Clinton won the election, but added that he wouldn’t get in the way if a majority of senators disagreed with him.
