The rescheduled confirmation hearing for Makan Delrahim, President Trump’s nominee to lead the Justice Department’s antitrust division, is set for May 10, according to a Senate Judiciary Committee calendar.
The hearing, originally scheduled for April 26, was delayed at the last minute due to missing paperwork from the Office of Government Ethics.
Delrahim is expected to be confirmed. Hearings for DOJ assistant attorney general nominees are generally cordial. Sen. Amy Klobuchar (Minn.), the ranking Democrat on the Judiciary Committee’s antitrust panel, has indicated she’ll question Delrahim on potential conflicts of interest related to his prior employment as a lobbyist for companies seeking to merge.
Delrahim, who lobbied for Anthem Inc. in its effort to merge with Cigna Corp., has promised to recuse himself from matters involving the health insurer, according to a questionnaire Delrahim submitted to the committee in April. Anthem and Cigna recently lost an appeal of a federal district court decision siding with the Justice Department in its suit to block their $54 billion merger as anticompetitive.
