Senator Lindsey Graham will be the new Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee.

According to Fox News:

Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., was elected Wednesday to serve as Senate Judiciary Committee chairman.

The role was previously held by Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, who announced in November that he would be stepping down. Grassley became the Senate Finance Committee Chairman on Wednesday, according to a news release.

“I’m honored to be selected as chairman of the Judiciary Committee,” Graham said in a separate news release. “I will do my best to continue down the path charted by Senator Grassley of having a fair and vibrant committee process.”

He said that “the confirmation of conservative judges will be one of my top priorities as chairman.”

Senator Feinstein is the ranking member of the committee but Graham will have control over Trump's judicial nominees.
