This will be a weekly post.
Count is now at 43.
The McConnell slow-walk of conservative judges continues.
who did 27 Republicans oppose?
I believe this judge is from Hawaii and was appointed the 9th Circuit. Not sure if it was one of Trump’s better appointments. I wonder who recommended him for the position and why.
Mark Jeremy Bennett
Republican defectors said Mr. Bennett is hostile toward gun rights and free speech.
Mr. Bennett, a former Hawaii attorney general now nominated to the 9th Circuit, had backed a limited interpretation of Second Amendment rights an interpretation that was later rejected by the Supreme Court.
Thanks for the info!
He’s a Linda Lingle acolyte.
Yes, this one is a clunker.
Looks like Barney Frank and Rodney Dangerfield’s love child.
Please may the mid term elections give the Republicans a super majority to clean up this mess quickly.
Absolutely dreadful pick. Anti 2nd was pro gay marriage from the begnning. A total Rat pick who the picked this guy for trump?
And Trump gave McConnell’s wife a job in his administration, while the turtle continues to screw him.
It’s a very simple and easy rule to follow. Never, ever appoint anyone from Hawaii to any governmental office unless surfing is a part of the job description.
Mark Bennett, he former AG from Hawaii that defended the state's gun control laws.
He is a Republican and joined the Federalist Society in 2016.
What’s with the ginormous plastic beaded necklace?
