Michael Scudder, one of the two Illinois nominees, actually clerked for Kennedy.
Re: “Unanimous consent is NOT good.”
The Always-Trumpers claim that these unanimous votes are a “tradition” when the opposing side does not have enough votes to reject the nominee.
That is incorrect.
In 2017, Trump was nominating judges without consulting the Senators, and many of his nominees had significant opposition.
In 2018, Trump started consulting the Senators, and almost all his nominees are sailing through with little or no opposition at all.
Totally untrue. Only Scudder and St. Eve are the ones that didn't receiver 20 to 40=plus no votes from Dems for the appeals courts:
Yea, is that why these nominations are taking so long to clear the Senate, because they are unopposed?
Always-Trumpers?? Excuse me? What does that make you?
“Unanimous consent is NOT good”
Bad sign for sure. Any nominee that gets more then a few Rat votes is almost certainly a bad pick. This is where we are.
