Pelosi Congratulates Congressman Jerrold Nadler on Judiciary Committee Ranking Membership


Washington, D.C. – Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi issued this statement after the Democratic Caucus elected Congressman Jerrold Nadler of New York to serve as Ranking Member of the House Judiciary Committee:

“The Democratic Caucus congratulates Congressman Jerry Nadler on his election as House Judiciary Committee Ranking Member, and commend him and Congresswoman Zoe Lofgren both on their strong, principled campaigns.

“Democrats look forward to Ranking Member Nadler’s fierce, fearless leadership to defend the promise of justice and liberty for all.  For decades, Ranking Member Nadler has fought on the front lines of the civil rights fight, and has brought deep expertise and legal acumen to the vital work of defending voting rights and combating voter suppression, fighting discrimination against LGBT Americans and protecting women’s health.  As the longtime leader of key Judiciary Subcommittees, has been instrumental in safeguarding the sacred civil liberties of all Americans.

“Together, Democrats on the Judiciary Committee will continue the fight against Republicans’ discriminatory assault on Americans’ civil rights and liberties.  Congresswoman Zoe Lofgren’s staunch defense of equal justice for all will continue to be invaluable.  Guided by Congressman Nadler and Congresswoman Lofgren’s strong voices, Democrats will continue to stand firm against the Republican attacks on immigrant communities, voting rights and gun violence protection.”
