President Trump, who plans to have named 150 federal judges by the end of this year, is on a pace to fill 30% of the bench, a historic legacy being tied to the conservative movement to restore America.
Legal experts said that over his first term, Trump is expected to name some 250 judges to the Supreme Court, district courts, courts of appeals, and the U.S. Court of International Trade. Overall, there are 870 federal judges.
“By the end of this year, the president will have likely nominated/confirmed almost 150 federal judges, including two Supreme Court justices; he may well appoint another justice to the Supreme Court before the close of his first term, as both Stephen Breyer and Ruth Bader Ginsburg are now in their 80s. Also, in key circuits where the Left formerly dominated, we have a conservative majority,” said Timothy S. Goeglein, vice president for external and government relations at Focus on the Family.
And that, said Goeglein, a former George W. Bush administration official, is sparking a conservative restoration of the Constitution.
Give Cocaine Mitch some of the credit.
