REPORT: Trump’s stealth victory – Reshaping the courts


As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News offers the following information published by WASHINGTONEXAMINER.COM:

With less than two years under his belt, President Trump has managed to make a substantial imprint on the U.S. judicial system — one that could be felt for decades to come — by getting the Senate to confirm key judicial nominees.

The fundamental shift has come even as Republicans grumble that Democrats are slow-walking the process in the Senate. Democrats have been demanding maximum debate time for many of Trump’s picks, but even with that obstacle, the courts aren’t lacking for Trump nominees.

The article goes on to state the following:

“What President Trump has done with judicial selection and appointments is probably at the very center of his legacy, and may well be his greatest accomplishments thus far,” Leonard Leo, an outside adviser to the White House on judicial selection and executive vice president of the Federalist Society, told the Washington Examiner.

“By the end of this year, he probably will have transformed about 30 percent of the federal appellate courts in our country, and that’s quite significant when put against other administrations in modern history,” he said.

Liberals mostly hate Trump’s choices.

“Most of the nominees confirmed for the court of appeals seats manifest an exceptional level of hostility to workers, women, consumer rights, environmental protections and people of color,” Nan Aron, president of the Alliance for Justice, told the Washington Examiner. “They’re selected specifically because of the hostility revealed in their records.”

But more are coming. There are currently 80 Trump judicial nominees in the Senate pipeline between the appeals courts, district courts, and the U.S. Court of Federal Claims, according to the Administrative Office of the U.S. Courts.
