Default Another President Trump 9th circuit appointee

Senate confirms Trump pick to 9th Circuit -- but Dems Feinstein, Harris oppose fellow Californian




In a 52-45 party-line vote Wednesday, the Senate confirmed President Trump’s nominee to the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals.


The confirmation of California lawyer Kenneth Lee marked the first time neither home-state senator had returned a blue slip, a Senate tradition in which the home-state senator gives their opinion of the nominee, the Hill reported.


Neither Sen. Dianne Feinstein nor Sen. Kamala Harris, both California Democrats, returned a blue slip on Lee’s nomination to the San Francisco-based court. Lee, 43, a native of South Korea, is a past special counsel for the Senate Judiciary Committee.


Sen. Tom Cotton, R-Ark., called Lee “a man of high character” and a brilliant lawyer. The two attended law school together.


“Lee’s record shows that he is far outside the legal mainstream,” Feinstein said, according to the Washington Times.

I believe that's 16 liberal, 10 conservative and 3 needing to be filled......

With any luck that will be called Trump's 9th Circuit by the time his second term is over.

Pulling California away from it's extreme left political bent will be difficult. It cannot occur with the present extreme left 9th Circuit. Making the 9th Circuit a centrist court is not sufficient to make California a centrist politically driven state, but it is necessary.

In the 1990's, a California referendum initiative banned providing public services too illegals. The 9th Circuit overruled the initiative, and the then Democrat governor refused to have the state Attorney General appeal the decision. This loosen the flood gates for the illegal invasion.

2016 was all about senate control for this exact reason.

When Trump is finished the court should be close to 1/2 conservative (13 of 29) so that's reason to celebrate. Especially since many decisions are decided by a smaller group of judges and not the full court.

Your numbers are correct but I would say appointed by a democrat/republican president instead of liberal v. conservative.

Once they're appointed (annotated) for life, you never know how they will decide (e.g. Chief Justice John Roberts)
