The MAGA Army Of Judges Are On Their Way

As the Democrats continue to implode, something historical happened in the Judiciary Committee earlier today.

From the article linked above:

The Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday approved more than three dozen nominees to the federal bench, paving the way for a full vote before the Senate as President Trump continues to reshape the federal judiciary.

The nominees include six to the federal circuit courts, to which Trump has already appointed 30 judges. The Senate Judiciary Committee also approved 34 nominees to the federal district courts, two to the U.S. Court of Federal Claims, and two to the U.S. Court of International Trade.

The 44 judicial nominees passed out of the committee marks the most approved in a single markup since 1981.

The picks will now head to the full Senate where, if confirmed, they will join the 85 judges Trump has named to the federal bench, including two to the U.S. Supreme Court.

Among those approved by the committee are two, Bridget Bade and Eric Miller, to the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, considered the country’s most liberal circuit court. There are currently six vacancies on the San Francisco-based court, and if Trump fills all of the empty seats, it will bring the 9th Circuit closer to parity, with 13 judges appointed by Republicans and 16 appointed by Democrats.

The slate also included one nominee to the 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, Paul Matey, on which there are currently two vacancies. If Trump successfully fills both empty seats, which includes Matey, the Philadelphia-based court would flip.

Allison Jones Rushing, Trump’s nominee to the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, was questioned by Sen. John Kennedy, R-La., about her “life experiences.” She’s also been criticized for her youth — at 36, she would be the youngest appeals court judge if confirmed.

From the article linked above:

There are 179 judgeships for the U.S. Courts of Appeals. Meaning, those 26 appointments had already accounted for roughly 15%.

Only 11 vacancies remain to be filled on the U.S. Courts of Appeals. If President Trump’s nominees are confirmed, his administration could have reshaped as much as 21% of the nation’s second highest court.

We will enjoy this gift from our President for decades to come!
