Senator's views about the secret hold that preceded this unanimous vote:

“Don’t ask me why she has had to sit around the calendar for 60 days... I won’t go into one of my rants about secret holds. I will save that for another day.” -Sen. Claire McCaskill, D-Mo.

“It’s almost childish” -Sen. Patrick Leahy, D-Vt., chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee.
