Yesterday President Trump nominated three judges, Daniel Bress, Daniel Collins and Kenneth Kiyul to serve on the infamously leftist Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals.
On Thursday, Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham backed the President's nominees and vowed to get them confirmed.
“I’m very supportive of the nominees submitted by President Trump to serve on the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals. These are highly qualified nominees and I am hopeful they will receive wide bipartisan support,” Graham said in a statement. “These nominations continue a trend by the Trump Administration of selecting highly qualified men and women to serve on the federal bench.”
The left is starting to panic about the nominations, given they will flip the most liberal court in the country.
Dianne Feinstein is the top Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee and her legacy is going to be that she let Trump flip the historically liberal Ninth Circuit on her watch.https://t.co/lKIyE9JfWM— Brian Fallon (@brianefallon) January 31, 2019
Judiciary Committee Ranking Member Dianne Feinstein attempted to control the nomination process and was ultimately rejected by the White House.
I am deeply disappointed that the White House has chosen to re-nominate Daniel Collins and Kenneth Lee to the Ninth Circuit. We made clear our opposition to these individuals and told the White House we wanted to work together to come to consensus on a new package of nominees.— Sen Dianne Feinstein (@SenFeinstein) January 31, 2019
Meanwhile, the Judicial Crisis Network has been running television ads around the country urging Democrats to stop their obstruction.
Last week President Trump sent 51 nominations for federal judgeships around the country to the Senate for confirmation.
"President @realDonaldTrump is winning the fight to save our Constitution and the rule of law from out of control liberal judges," White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders tweeted about the move.
