Cotton, do you have any insight into when the President will resubmit some (or all) of the 32 judicial nominations that the Senate returned to him yesterday under the Senate rules?

I see that the Judiciary Committee has a “nomination hearing” on their calendar for January 8th. I have no idea how to get a copy of their agenda for that meeting. I’m particularly interested in Andrew Brasher, Trump’s nominee for the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals, who was among the 32. I see Brasher as a potential future Trump Supreme Court nominee.

No I don’t. But the same think happened last year.

And then the Judiciary committee quickly re-sent to the floor the ones it had previously sent.

So the Judiciary committee will have to act before we see any further confirmations.
