Skip to comments.Sen. Feinstein says White House didn't consult on judicial nominees
Posted on 10/11/2018 3:36:40 PM PDT by jazusamo
The top Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee blasted the White House Thursday for picking nominees for the West Coasts appeals court without consulting her, and saying one of the three doesnt have any judicial experience.
President Trump named a new slate of court picks Wednesday, including three judges to sit on the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals.
But Sen. Dianne Feinstein of California objected, saying she had tried to consult with the White House but was rebuffed.
She said she would withhold her blue slip, in a signal that she doesnt acquiesce to the picks. Blue slips are a Senate courtesy that, at times, has given home-state lawmakers a chance to express acceptance of a nominee.

Shut up Swinestain.
Feinstein looking for a courtesy? AHAHAHA. Go feinstein yourself.
She complained that none of them speak Mandarin.
I wonder why she wasn’t consulted?
Just like Elena Kagan.
Sit down and STFU. They never learn.
Didnt consult her maybe.
Citizen judges. Toss a few in the mix. Oh, and bring back star chambers for laughs.
Because Weineystein every other time you’ve been consulted we got idiots on the 9th circuit.
This “Blue Slip” nonsense has to stop.
Senator Feinstein, after what you did with Brett Kavanaugh there is ZERO chance he will call you for anything.
“saying one of the three doesnt have any judicial experience.”
Kind of like Elena Kagan. Did the Senator have an issue with her?
Grassley has been ignoring blue slips since last November. After the stunt ChiSpiDiFi pulled with Kavanaugh, she should be persona non grata to Grassley & Trump. BTW, she had her knickers in a knot last year when Grassley was ignoring blue slips, too.
Support Free Republic, Folks!
What about the communist spy from china that finestein had as her office manager and driver for 20 years? Arrest this compromised traitor.
DiFi, at this point you and your blue slips are as about as effective as a fart in a wind storm.
She knows what to do with her blue slip
