Oops! Harry Reid’s ‘NUCLEAR OPTION’ BACKFIRES – Means Trump Will Appoint 100 Judges Immediately

The Democrats keep losing!

Remember in 2013 when Harry Reid used the ‘nuclear option’ to confirm judges?

Harry Reid’s new rule was that no filibusters could be used to stop judges below the Supreme Court. All it took was a simple majority to confirm them.

Harry Reid changed a long-standing tradition in service of Democrat partisanship.

Fast forward to 2017. Republicans will have a simple majority in the Senate. And there are over 100 empty judge spots below the Supreme Court.

There currently are over 100 vacancies in the federal appeals and trial courts.

As Philip Rucker and Robert Barnes at WaPo write, that will allow Donald Trump to reshape the federal judiciary rather decisively and quickly, Trump to inherit more than 100 court vacancies, plans to reshape judiciary:

“Donald Trump is set to inherit an uncommon number of vacancies in the federal courts in addition to the open Supreme Court seat, giving the president-elect a monumental opportunity to reshape the judiciary after taking office. The estimated 103 judicial vacancies that President Obama is expected to hand over to Trump in the Jan. 20 transition of power is nearly double the 54 openings Obama found eight years ago following George W. Bush’s presidency.”
