During his eight years as President, Obama appointed as many liberal judges as possible. It’s one of the few things he was good at, for Democrats anyway.
Now, while Democrats are still running around with their hair on fire screaming about Russia, President Trump is restoring balance to the judiciary by nominating conservatives to be federal judges.
FOX News reports:
Restoring credibility? Trump’s slate of 11 judicial nominees could shake up courts
Whether former President Barack Obama transformed the country is an open question – but there’s no question he transformed the federal courts.
For example, in the federal appeals courts, one level below the Supreme Court, Obama named about one-third of all judges presently sitting.
Now it’s Donald Trump’s turn to transform the courts. With more than 120 openings on the federal bench, the White House has just announced a slate of 11 new judicial nominees.
Court observers say the nominees will be a positive addition to the courts.
Carrie Severino, chief counsel and policy director of the Judicial Crisis Network, called it a “fantastic list” with nominees who “have shown commitment to principled and even-handed application of the law throughout their careers.”
Jonathan Adler, professor at Case Western Reserve University School of Law in Ohio, called the choices “superlative judicial nominees with sterling credentials and impressive intellects.”
In addition to this, there are already rumors swirling around Washington that another Supreme Court justice will retire this summer, giving Trump another opportunity to nominate another conservative justice.
