Attorney General Eric Holder was the first confirmed witness for the [Senate Judiciary Committee] hearing, according to a Thursday statement from the committee. The hearing is set for 10 a.m. June 25 in Room 226 of the Dirksen Senate Office Building.

A committee spokesperson said no other witnesses have been confirmed besides the attorney general . . . [who] has spoken in favor of the measure. [Sure, why have any opposing views?!]

The attorney general invoked the shootings at the Holocaust Memorial Museum earlier this month and other recent acts of violence as reasons to pass the legislation.

Holder said the hate crimes bill pending in Congress "does away with" what he called "unnecessary jurisdictional requirements" to allow the Justice Department to assist in prosecuting hate crimes.
