Skip to comments.Fifteen Judges Confirmed This Week (no more till after the election)
Posted on 10/13/2018 3:12:41 AM PDT by cotton1706
This will be a weekly post.
Count is now 84.
53 District Court judges
29 Circuit Court judges
2 Supreme Court justices
10% of the Judiciary are now Trump appointees!
This is a good service. Thank you.
Why did the ‘pubs wimp out after one week? I thought they were disgusted enough after the Kavanaugh hearing mob scenes and threats to their lives to keep piling it on.
Just how many more vacancies remain to be filled?
They didn’t wimp out. If the democrats insisted on 30 hours of debate for each nominee up to the election, this same number would have been confirmed. And the democrats wanted to go home to campaign.
So McConnell says, hey let’s confirm these without your usual games. He had them in a vise. The result: 15 confirmations in like two hours.
Good info... thanks for posting!
"We're all just pawns in their game"
I wonder what percentage of the Judiciary was appointed by OBOZO?!?
“something REALLY important at stake” —> Their cushy jobs
It’s a lot better than 10% in some ways... The top picks are the hardest work, and he’s done that heavy lifting: 22% of the Supreme Court, and about 23% of the District Courts of Appeals.
Also confirmed this week: 2 Assistant Attorneys General - both nominated 16 MONTHS AGO!

Really? That’s great! Do you have a source?
Appreciate your keeping tabs on this...Trump is doing so much more than we could have hoped for and diluting the 9th Circus is just one of them - it might give DiFi an embolism....
“I wonder what percentage of the Judiciary was appointed by OBOZO?!?”
Just ran those numbers. Obama confirmed 38% of the judiciary, over eight years, most of them district judges.
2 Supreme Court
55 Circuit court
268 District Court
Trump has Obama tied with Supreme Court nominees, and is over halfway to his Circuit Court number (in only two years).
Thank you for the info. Really appreciate it!
The figures above do not include tax courts, the veterans affairs court, etc., on which there are a few dozen judges.
There are 179 Circuit Court positions and 678 District court positions in total.
Search the following:
PN1407: Nomination of Jeffrey Bossert Clark, of Virginia, to be an Assistant Attorney General (Confirmed by Senate vote 52-45 on 10/11/2018)
PN1409 Nomination of Eric S. Dreiband, of Maryland, to be an Assistant Attorney General (Confirmed by Senate vote 50-47 on 10/11/2018)
Here’s some more info. It was better than I thought!
