Merrick Garland Withheld Financial Info

Supreme Court nominee Merrick Garland did not respond to a question about his financial net worth when he filled out his nomination paperwork to the Senate on Tuesday. President Obama’s previous picks, Elena Kagan and Sonia Sotomayor, both provided the net worth statement in their documentation. Withholding the information could be a way to kickstart the confirmation process, prompting Republicans to seek more information.
