This will be a weekly post.
Count remains at 185 judges confirmed.
133 District Court judges
50 Circuit Court judges
2 Supreme Court justices
The Democrites really had a bone for Eleni Roumel - probably because she's Federalist Society.
Jan 8 Confirmed, 51-47: Executive Calendar #462 Eleni Maria Roumel [Federalist Society member] to be a Judge of the U.S. Court of Federal Claims for a term of fifteen years Jan 8 Confirmed, 89-8 : Executive Calendar #329 Matthew H. Solomson to be a Judge of the U.S. Court of Federal Claims for a term of fifteen years
Probably none until after impeachment trial. I predict the next batch comes around February 10th.
I was glad Roumel finally got confirmed.
There are very few awaiting confirmation on the Senate Floor at this point, most got returned to the President. I think the 5th Circuit nominee will not be renominated. Brascher for the 11th circuit has already been resubmitted by the President. There are 22 nominees pending presently, most at the Judicial Committee hearing stage.
On The Senate floor
Diane Gujarati, of New York
Robert Anthony Molloy, of the Virgin Islands
John Fitzgerald Kness, of Illinois
Silvia Carreno-Coll, of Puerto Rico
Philip M. Halpern, of New York
Barbara Bailey Jongbloed, of Connecticut
Travis Greaves, of the District of Columbia
You got that right!
Every single one of em
That includes Manchin!
That includes Doug Jones!
That includes Sinema!
Just wanted to beat that into the heads of all you people around here who think Manchin or Sinema is your friend.
Thanks for the heads-up on the District court queue!
Been a while since I looked at that.
Manchin and Sinema goosestep right along with the rest of them, when the chips are down.
True, but Mitch slammed through 11 of them on the last day of the session last year.
There are many pending nominations (but the list is getting smaller over time); but most need to be extensively vetted from scratch by the FBI, especially at the Circuit Court level, as this would be the first Federal position for most. Appeals Court nominations that are promotions from the Circuit Court only need updated vettings.
Loves me some Leader McConnell.
Hopefully, Mitch is gonna own Granny Botox in the next couple of weeks, then get back to slamming through judges.
