Skip to comments.No Judges Confirmed This Week (Senate fully reconvenes next week)
Posted on 01/04/2020 5:04:36 AM PST by cotton1706
This will be a weekly post.
Count remains at 185 judges confirmed.
133 District Court judges
50 Circuit Court judges
2 Supreme Court justices
We likely won't see any confirmations before February.
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. Im particularly interested in Andrew Brasher, Trumps 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.
