WASHINGTON Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell on Wednesday reached a significant milestone during the Trump presidency by filling the final vacancy on the U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, an achievement that fulfills his goal of remaking the federal judiciary as more conservative for a generation but also one that is less diverse.
McConnell, who has vowed to leave no vacancy behind, heralded the achievement on the Senate floor Wednesday, noting that there hasnt been a fully appointed Circuit Court in decades.
When we depart this chamber today, there will not be a single Circuit Court vacancy anywhere in the nation for the first time in at least 40 years, McConnell said. Our work with the administration to renew our federal courts is not a partisan or political victory. It's a victory for the rule of law and for the Constitution itself.
The conservative shift of the court under President Donald Trump and McConnell is not just ideological the federal courts have also become younger, more white and more male.

Mitch isn’t perfect but let’s give him an NFL-style smack on the bottom for the judge appointments.
They could announce a cure for cancer and the Media/Libs/Dems/Commies would bitch about putting cancer research labs out of work.
“the federal courts have also become younger, more white and more male”
When Oh When will we have a ChiCom Judiciary?
It’s only fair.
McConnell has been working on this plan for a number of years, including the last years of the Halfrican clown.
They want courts that look like the NFL.

Darn right - good judges will pay dividends for decades.
Not just courts.
The entire government is supposed to be “minority” because Da Whiteys Beez Ebil, and must be controlled.
Right up to the day when they aren’t the majority. And then it will flip to “well we are the majority now, so naturally we should be in charge”.
That little change is supposed to happen in about 20 years, courtesy of mass immigration from Planet S***hole.
Not sure about all these “conservative” judges considering what we got with Roberts and Gorsuch.
We need 4 more years of Trump so he can replace the cadavers Ginsburg and Breyer.
And the hopefully, the wise latrina will kick the bucket (has diabetes), leaving only Elena Flintstone as the token liberal.
Repairing the judiciary by almost completely countering 8 years of awful appointments by Obama in 4 years is a signal achievement for President Trump.
We can look forward to making real progress in Trump’s 2nd term.
Ha! I see what you did there. :-)
There is nothing, short of open warfare, that might stop them...
The American people have stumbled along for 100 years ignoring the sacrifices of the Founding Fathers and the gifts of freedom & liberty they left for us...
Now, here we are standing at the edge of the precipice of permanent tyranny and darkness... No more time for discussions, planning, voting, elections, soul-searching, posting to forums, or talk... Lose this election to the communists and there will never be another...
If the communists win, it will be interesting to see how many minutemen actually take arms and show up at the bridge in November...
I survived one war with the Chinese communists... As an 87-year-old living here in MD, I doubt I'll survive this one with the American communists... I just have to look at the pictures of my many children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren and know that I will show up at the bridge...
The only good communist/Marxist is a dead communist/Marxist... Everyone who votes for the communists is a communist...
Well the jury is still out on Gorsuch and Kavanaugh.
They make it sound healthier.
You just keep yourself healthy and plugging away.
We cant have you retirewe need the help!
I could see them also passing a law abolishing the judicial positions, then passing another reinstating them to allow Biden to replace them all.
the federal courts have also become younger, more white and more male....
The Constitution is none of those things so as hillery would say “what difference does it make?”
