GOP Reshaping the Federal Judiciary

With Little Fanfare, Trump and McConnell Reshape the Nation’s Circuit Courts: (“As the Senate moves toward confirming Supreme Court nominee Brett M. Kavanaugh, President Trump and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell are leading a lower-key yet deeply consequential charge to remake the entire federal judiciary. * * * The Senate already has installed 24 appellate judges since Trump was sworn in, the highest number for a president’s first two years in office. * * * While much of the focus has been on Kavanaugh and Justice Neil M. Gorsuch, the Senate’s rapid approval of appellate judges is likely to have its own broad impact on the nation, as the 13 circuit courts will shape decisions on immigration, voting rights, abortion and the environment for generations.”)
