This is great news for conservatives.
While Democrats and their media allies continue to push their impeachment circus on a disinterested American public, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is getting ready to confirm more Trump judges.
McConnell has become a judge confirming machine.
The Hill reports:
McConnell tees up votes on 13 Trump judicial picks ahead of break
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) is teeing up the Senate to vote on more than a dozen judicial nominations as he tries to wrap up the chamber’s work for the year.
McConnell filed cloture on 13 of President Trump’s district court picks on Monday, a procedural move that will allow them to start coming up for votes on the Senate floor as soon as Wednesday.
Under a rules change implemented by Senate Republicans earlier this year, each nomination will be subject to an additional two hours of debate once it overcomes an initial procedural hurdle.
It’s unclear if Democrats will agree to speed up the votes on the judicial nominations. The Senate also needs to pass a mammoth defense bill, known as the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), and fund the government before it leaves town until January.
A vote on the NDAA is set for Tuesday. The Senate needs to pass the government funding package before the end of Friday.
Progressives are outraged, naturally.
With all that’s going on this week, Mitch McConnell seeks to rubber-stamp another 13 nominees into lifetime seats on our federal courts. https://t.co/rMmrzod0BG

Democrats try to play partisan hardball and then absolutely lose their minds and cry for days on end when Mitch McConnell throws it right back in their face and does it so much better than them.
The best part is that he's confirming judges at the same time.
