EXCLUSIVE: The FBI background investigation into President Biden’s nominee to serve as the U.S. Circuit Judge for the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals revealed he had his driver’s license suspended on three occasions due to driving-related citations, Fox News has learned.
Fox News exclusively obtained a letter, dated Jan. 7, penned by Biden’s nominee, Andre B. Mathis to Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Dick Durbin, D-Ill., and Ranking Member Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa. A number of members of the Senate Judiciary Committee confirmed the letter’s authenticity, and that they had received the letter, to Fox News.
In the letter, Mathis addressed details of the FBI’s background investigation.
As is standard procedure, the FBI leads background check investigations into judicial nominees. Reports are typically shared with the Senate Judiciary Committee, which is charged with vetting the nominee.
“I understand that the Committee is concerned about my driving record,” Mathis wrote, as he offered to “provide more information and context.”
