Special Counsel Robert Mueller handed down indictments for key Trump aides in the investigation into Russia interfering with the 2016 election. Trump’s campaign manager faces 12 charges, including conspiracy against the United States, and more indictments are coming.
Sensing the danger for the administration, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is pushing to confirm as many of Trump’s federal judiciary nominees as possible before it all falls down.
Trump’s claim to the presidency is razor thin. He must not be allowed to make lifelong appointments to the federal bench.
After years of obstructing Obama judicial nominations, Senate Republicans have been rapidly clearing Donald Trump’s nominees. Now Mitch McConnell is threatening to keep the Senate in session until the four judges he’s ramming through are confirmed.
Trump’s nominees are extremely conservative, and in many instancesunqualified, judges who will serve for life once confirmed. The impacts of stacking the judiciary with right-wing extremists will impede progress for generations.
It’s simple: A man who may have colluded with a hostile foreign power to steal the presidency must not be allowed to appoint federal judges for life. None of this is okay.
