Statement by Senator Biden Following the Indictment of I. Lewis Libby

A statement from Senator Biden on Harriet Miers Withdrawal:

Thursday, October 27th, 2005

I never got a chance to get to know Harriett Miers and make any determination about her qualifications to serve on the Supreme Court. But, clearly, she is a woman of accomplishment, and she has been treated very unfairly by those who created a caricature in an effort to undermine her.

Face the Nation

Monday, October 17th, 2005

This past Sunday, Senator Biden appeared on CBS’s Face the Nation, where he discussed both the situation in Iraq and the Supreme Court nomination of Harriet Miers.

Since I first authored the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) in 1994, the law has had a tremendous impact on the lives of women and children in our country.

A statement on the Nomination of Harriet Miers to The Supreme Court

Wednesday, October 5th, 2005

I congratulate Harriet Miers on her nomination to be Associate Justice of the United States Supreme Court.
