Video: Toomey addresses Senate regarding Justice Dept. nominee

The U.S. Senate is slated to vote this afternoon on the nomination of Debo Adegbile as assistant attorney general for civil rights in the U.S. Department of Justice.

Both Pennsylvania Senators, Republican Pat Toomey and Democrat Robert Casey, oppose the nomination of Adegbile.Their opposition was outlined in an earlier blog post.

The Senate will first vote to end the debate on Adegbile’s nomination. A vote to confirm the attorney will follow.

Adegbile has drawn criticism for representing Mumia Abu-Jamal during the convicted-killer’s appeals process.

A video of Toomey addressing the Senate is below.
