President Trump’s victories aren’t celebrated enough. He’s done something remarkable in his first year in office, yet the accomplishment has been overshadowed by political dramas. Nearly a dozen federal judges have been confirmed, a modern record.
Courts decide the law. Trump’s decision to stuff courtrooms with conservatives will have huge effects on society. The Senate confirmed three new nominees this week, to the annoyance of the Democrats.
“The nominees, Leonard Grasz, Don Willett, and James Ho were appointed to the 5th and 8th U.S. Circuit Courts of Appeal. The Senate has cleared 12 nominations to the circuit courts since President Donald Trump assumed office,” reports the Daily Caller.
Liberals are particularly angry about Grasz and Willett. Both men are notorious conservatives.
“They will uphold the Constitution and fairly apply the law,” said Carrie Severino, chief counsel of the Judicial Crisis Network. “As the president continues to nominate exceptional individuals to the federal bench, I look forward to the Senate quickly confirming them to fill the many remaining judicial vacancies so they can serve the public for years to come.”
Nominating federal judges isn’t glamorous, but it’s an important part of the president’s job. The Supreme Court rules on landmark cases with huge implications. Whether the deciding judges are conservative-leaning or liberal really makes a difference.
“I have known the both of them for decades,” Sen. Ted Cruz said Wednesday about Grasz and Willet.
“Both are close friends. Both are brilliant lawyers. Both have spent decades earning a reputation as principled constitutionalists who will remain faithful to the law and will not impose their own policy preferences from the bench.”
