- Garland’s hearing will include questions about the current federal investigation into Hunter Biden, the president’s son, a spokesman for Grassley told Fox News in January.
- Garland will appear before the Senate panel on the first day of the hearings while outside witnesses will appear on the second day, Politico reported.
The schedule makes a confirmation vote on Garland’s nomination likely for March 1, Politico reported, noting that Judiciary Committee Chairman Dick Durbin, D-Ill., and ranking member Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, had agreed to the schedule.
Garland, 68, is a native of Chicago who has served since 1997 as a federal judge on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit.
