After he eluded the large gaggle of reporters standing right outside of the Senate’s dining room Tuesday, Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) released a photo on Instagram of his high-stakes breakfast with President Barack Obama’s Supreme Court nominee, Merrick Garland.

“Had pleasant bfast w Judge Garland this morning. Explained why the Senate won’t be moving fwd w his nomination. Next prez will decide after the ppl have a voice,” the Senate Judiciary Committee chair wrote in the post.

Grassley did speak with CNN and said “nothing has changed” as he exited out of a back hallway.
