Even prior to when President Donald Trump took office, his team was busy planning what the future of the Senate Judiciary Committee would look like.

Leading the reshaping the of the Judiciary committee was Donald McGahan II, who was later given the role of White House counsel. His goal has been to appoint young and conservative-leaning appellate judges.   “Mr. McGahn, instructed by Mr. Trump to maximize the opportunity to reshape the judiciary, mapped out potential nominees and a strategy, according to two people familiar with the effort: Start by filling vacancies on appeals courts with multiple openings and where Democratic senators up for re-election next year in states won by Mr. Trump — like Indiana, Michigan and Pennsylvania — could be pressured not to block his nominees. And to speed them through confirmation, avoid clogging the Senate with too many nominees for the district courts, where legal philosophy is less crucial,” writes the New York Times. “Nearly a year later, that plan is coming to fruition. Mr. Trump has already appointed eight appellate judges, the most this early in a presidency since Richard M. Nixon, and on Thursday, the Senate Judiciary Committee voted along party lines to send a ninth appellate nominee — Mr. Trump’s deputy White House counsel, Gregory Katsas — to the floor.”

Just last week four of Trump’s judicial nominees were confirmed, including Judge Joan, Amy Coney Barrett, Stephanos Bibas, Allison Eid, and Trevor McFadden.

The left has the key against these appointments: accuse them of ogling women.

Don’t believe, either prove that they’re not - or give it up regarding Moore’s baseless allegations.

The scary thing is what would be happening if The Beast had won...but anyone Trump can get on the bench is a BIG PLUS for the country and may delay (and hopefully diffuse) what would have literally been a civil war.
