Good new. Unfortunately at the top there are still at least five SCOTUS judges including Chief Justice Roberts fully committed to the Left’s agenda.
53 Circuit Court openings filled. That almost completely negates Obamas effect on the Circuit Courts. 200 Judges and 200 miles of Wall built.
Way too many, but the federal judiciary is certainly better than it was 4 years ago. Or 12 years ago.
So who broke ranks? Can I assume it was milt?
Susan Collins voted NAY. Willard voted YEA.
