The long awaited hearings for B. Todd Jones for ATF director will begin next month.

The Minneapolis Star Tribune reports that the Senate Judiciary Committee will begin confirmation hearings on June 4.

Jones, the U.S. Attorney in Minneapolis, could catch some grief from some Republicans in the Senate.

As we’ve seen over the past years, it’s not easy getting confirmed for this post, particularly when the NRA is behind the opposition.

Jones is currently the acting director.

  1. Hoping the Senate listens to the Agents, because they don’t trust this man to be their Director. His agenda is that of his close, personal friend Eric Holder. Holder selected him to cover up Fast&Furious. He has threatened whistleblowers as an US Atty and as the acting Dir of ATF. A truly bipartisan person must be selected for the position.
