The Week reports:

After “the horrific death of George Floyd while in police custody in Minneapolis,” the Senate Judiciary committee will conduct a hearing on police use of force, committee chair Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) announced Friday.

Both he and Ranking Member Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) “are appalled at what we saw,” and will hold the hearing to “shine a bright light on the problems associated” with Floyd’s death “with the goal of finding a better way forward for our nation.”
