Through his numerous appellate court appointments, President Trump has reshaped the U.S. federal judiciary and shifted it toward the right. We examined all 51 of his appointees to obtain a collective portrait of the Trump-populated bench.

With President Trump publicly attacking a judge: Now would be the time for Chief Justice Roberts to speak up. Now would be the time for the Chief Justice to directly and specifically defend the independence of the federal judiciary. I hope he will see fit to, and do it today.

Today the Judiciary Committee advanced a judicial nominee, Ryan Bounds, without support from either of his home-state senators. This has NEVER happened before. It’s yet another example of Republicans breaking the rules to stack our federal courts.

This person, with absolutely no real qualifications for the job, is on the cusp of a lifetime appointment to the federal judiciary.

Can we at least mention that the Senate Judiciary voted to put a blogger w/no legal experience on the federal bench for life?
