Senator David Perdue Comments On Confirmation Of President Trump’s Judicial Nominees

“These judges will help shape the direction of the courts for years to come.”

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator David Perdue (R-GA) comments on the United States Senate’s work to confirm President Trump’s judicial nominees:

“The United States Senate has been stalled by historic obstruction from Senate Democrats. Despite this partisan gridlock, we confirmed Justice Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court earlier this year, and have since confirmed 15 judicial nominees, including eight judges to the powerful United States Circuit Courts. These judges will help shape the direction of the courts for years to come. Unlike most things in Washington, we are moving quickly to get more judges in place. By comparison, in Obama’s first year in office, only three Circuit Court judges were confirmed. While we are making significant progress, there is still a lot more work to be done. President Trump has been in office for 10 months now and still doesn’t have his full team in place. Washington needs to pick up the pace and get all of President Trump’s nominees confirmed as quickly as possible.”

Background:

  • 16 judges confirmed this year, including Supreme Court Justice Gorsuch.
  • judges confirmed to the powerful United States Circuit Courts.
  • district judges confirmed.
  • 3 judges confirmed to the Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims.
  • There are 15 district and circuit court judges pending on the executive calendar.
  • The oldest judicial nomination on the executive calendar is 113 days.
  • There are 39 judges still pending in the Judiciary Committee.
  • There are currently 145 federal judge vacancies that the Senate will confirm.

WV (D) Joe Manchin III, ND (D) Heidi Heitkamp, and IN (D) Joe Donnelly Vote to Confirm Neil Gorsuch for Supreme Court

Featured, Politics

Senators (D) Joe Manchin, (D) Heidi Heitkamp, and (D) Joe Donnelly broke ranks with the fellow Democrats, to vote for Neil Gorsuch as Associate Supreme Court Justice. All three candidates are facing re-election in 2018. Trump had decisive wins in North Dakota, West Virginia, and Indiana. These are three Senate seats Republicans feel they can gain in 2018. All three Senators may have very strong Republican opponents and they certainly don’t want to be explaining to voters why they voted against Neil Gorsuch for Supreme Court.

Also in our morning monologue, we discuss President Donald Trump’s retaliation for Syria’s use of chemical weapons on their own people. After the monologue we start looking at all the conspiracy theories regarding the power struggle between Chief Strategists, Steve Bannon and Donald Trump’s son-in-law, Senior Advisor, Jared Kushner.
