Re: “Totally untrue.”

Thanks, Kazan.

I actually looked for a comprehensive list of Trump judges before I posted, but I couldn’t find one.

LOL, perhaps the trick is to use “List Of” in my search terms?

By the way, I did not invent my original declaration out of thin air.

About six weeks ago someone posted an article here at FR after a judge was confirmed by a huge margin.

That article said the same thing I did, that when no Democrats vote against a Republican nominee, that is a grave danger signal. The article also said that Trump’s White House Counsel was now handling all judicial nominees, that the Counsel had reinstated the tradition of gaining the approval of home state Senators, and that the nominee approval process was expected to speed up considerably and with much less acrimony.

“The article also said that Trump’s White House Counsel was now handling all judicial nominees”

I saw the White House Counsel address CPAC this year on their approach to judicial appointments.

He indicated that they are strategically selecting nominees, and that their guiding objective is to develop a judiciary that will serve as a check on, or will systematically roll back, the powers of the administrative State. That was the key feature of Gorsuch’s career, that made him their pick.

Hopefully, they are able to maintain their strategic momentum, while adopting new tactical approaches.

I expect that next year, Republicans will have a greater majority in the Senate. In the outside chance that the Republicans get 60 in the Senate, a new approach might be in order.
