The best thing about the demorats’ years-long impeachment obsession?
They have taken their eyes off of other important issues such as President Trump’s record-setting number of judicial appointments. And Mitch McConnell is about to confirm 13 more conservative nominations before 2020.
While the demorats spend countless hours on their fantasy of removing President Trump, McConnell isn’t about to let that stop him from helping shape our judicial system.
Excerpts from Bloomberg Law:
“The Republican-led Senate is aiming to squeeze in a final round of confirmations in another big year for conservative judicial nominees. Trump has appointed more than 170 district and appellate judges since taking office as well as two to the U.S. Supreme Court in a bid to remake the judiciary with young conservatives.
Most of the trial court selections advanced by McConnell for votes this week would go to eight states with at least one Republican senator and five represented by Democrats. Democrats have expressed frustration with many Trump judicial selections, saying they lack the requisite legal qualifications or are too ideological.
McConnell made his move amid reports that Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) is resisting efforts to negotiate a package of lower court judges that could move before adjournment and be approved without roll call votes. Democratic aides said they do not expect a year-end package that is approved by unanimous consent to include more judges.”
