WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee on Monday is due to vote to advance Merrick Garland, President Joe Bidenís attorney general nominee, paving the way for the U.S. Senate to vote to confirm him to the post.

Garland has garnered support among both Democrats and Republicans, who cite his prior experience as a prosecutor and a judge.

The timing of a full Senate vote on Garlandís nomination was not immediately clear.

1. Good.

He's already been through a previous confirmation (24 years ago where both Turtle and ASSley voted against him on some nonsense principal of whether to fill that D.C. Circuit seat).
