After Kavanaugh fight Democrats approve 15 judicial nominees so they can campaign

October 12, 2018

  One of the most important jobs a President is tasked with is nominating judges to fill vacancies in the lower courts and to date this is one thing Donald Trump and the Republican Congress has been very successful in doing. But with the exception of Supreme Court nominees this gets very little attention in the public eye.

  On the heals of Brett Kavanaugh’s dirty confirmation battle where the Democrats pulled out all the stops they decided it was more important to hit the campaign trail rather than fight to stop 15 of Donald Trump’s nominees to the lower courts. Here is more:

The Senate confirmed 15 of President Trump’s judicial picks Thursday night after GOP leaders reached a deal with Democrats, clearing about a third of the backlog and closing up shop through Election Day to give senators a chance to campaign.

Three of the judges are for the powerful circuit courts of appeals, while the other 12 were for district court positions.

Needless to say, liberals were not happy:

“This deal was totally unnecessary and it is a bitter pill to swallow so soon after the Kavanaugh fight that so many progressive activists poured their hearts and souls into,” said Chris Kang, chief counsel for Demand Justice.

  When push came to shove the Democratic leaders put winning elections and trying to regain power ahead of stopping judges they are ideologically opposed to and this was clearly a political calculation which was put above policy.

  The Democrats did everything they could do to try to stop Donald Trump from reshaping the Supreme Court yet they threw in the towel as the President is in the process of reshaping the lower courts and the part that should be the most frustrating to Democratic voters is the fact this is the second time the Democrats have done this since the end of August.

      Yeah, this is something that goes under the radar but has long term ramifications. The guy you are thinking of was released from Turkey.
