McConnell Gives Trump HUGE GIFT After Acquittal – Schumer Furious

Well, that didn’t take long.

On Wednesday afternoon, the Republican-controlled Senate voted to officially acquit President Donald Trump on both articles of impeachment.

Not even an hour after the final votes had been tallied, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell twisted the knife in the heart of the Democrats by working to confirm several new conservative judges.

The Senate is expected to take its first procedural vote on the slate Monday evening, where Republicans will need a simple majority to end the debate on Andrew Brasher’s nomination to be a judge on the Eleventh Circuit.

After the vote on Brasher, the upper chamber will consider U.S. District Judge nominees Joshua Kindred, Matthew Schelp, Joshua Kness, and Philip Halpern.

Trump shared the message and added, “Now up to 187 Federal Judges, and two great new Supreme Court Justices. We are in major record territory. Hope EVERYONE is happy!”

Here is the list of judges posted by the Senate Cloakroom Twitter account on Wednesday afternoon:

Consider the hilarity of it all.

Practically minutes after the Senate voted to acquit the president of the bogus impeachment charges, McConnell filed measures to get 6 more conservative judges confirmed.

This marks a significant accomplishment for Trump, who has already confirmed 187 conservative judges to federal district and circuit courts across the country.

According to a recent analysis, Trump is on pace to appoint 30 percent of all federal judges currently on the bench by the end of his first term.

If Trump wins re-election in 2020 and serves another four years — it’s more than likely that he will have appointed more than 50 percent of all federal judges when he leaves office in 2024.

And, most importantly, many of the judges are in their 40s and some in their 30s.

This means that these conservative judges will serve on the courts for many, many years.

Trump’s judicial appointments also include two Supreme Court justices, Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh.

That’s certainly a historic accomplishment, and the Republican-controlled Senate is reshaping the federal courts across the country for decades to come.

And if Ruth Bader Ginsburg can’t make it much longer, Trump may get a third Supreme Court nomination very soon.
