This week President Trump and the Republican-controlled Senate set a historic record: 200 federal judge confirmations in under four years.
"Following number 200, when we depart this chamber today, there will not be a single circuit-court vacancy anywhere in the nation for the first time in at least 40 years," Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said Wednesday. “As I’ve said many times, our work with the administration to renew our federal courts is not a partisan or political victory. It is a victory for the rule of law and for the Constitution itself."
"If judges applying the law and the Constitution as they’re written strikes any of our colleagues as a threat to their political agenda, then the problem, I would argue, is with their agenda," he continued.
