Senate Judiciary Committee Ranking Member Dianne Feinstein just wrote a letter to Chairman Lindsey Graham urging the Committee to put off election lawsuits and allow Biden to make his own picks.
“Now that the 2020 election has concluded, it is clear that the American people have overwhelmingly rejected a second term for President Trump. It is imperative that the Judiciary Committee cease to process judicial nominees and allow President-Elect Biden the opportunity to appoint judges following his inauguration on January 20, 2021,” the letter reads.
Several lawsuits are still being filed by the Trump Campaign, even though Feinstein argues that Democratic vice presidential nominee Sen. Kamala Harris has already started implementing their transition plan. She said President Trump has lost his reelection bid and noted that the only exceptions have been in 2004 following George W. Bush’s reelection and in 2012 following Barack Obama’s reelection.
“The Senate Judiciary Committee will continue to process judges nominated by President Trump. We have confirmed over 220 and look forward to confirming even more,” Graham responded.
Sen. Graham paints a different picture of how to fill the court vacancies. He isn’t letting the media control the results of this election, let alone fill the seats however they please. Republicans have to win only one of the two U.S Senate runoff races in Georgia on Jan. 5 to maintain control of the Senate.
Marketing analysts predict that the spending on ads and other campaign activities could reach up to $1 billion, due to the severity of the political race.
So far there have been three Supreme Court nominees confirmed, 31 federal district nominees awaiting confirmation, two court judges awaiting confirmation, 53 judges added to the U.S federal appeal courts, and 164 judges to federal district courts. Republicans have held a majority in the Senate since the 2014 midterms, having control of 50 seats.
“All eyes are going to be on Georgia. Probably $1 billion is going to be spent by the Democratic Party here in Georgia to try and take those two seats,” said Julianne Thompson, Republican analyst.
If Democrats win both races, their party will take control of the Senate and turn the chamber into radical left territory for president-elect Biden. If Republicans win just one, then they maintain control of the Senate and can prevent a Biden administration from implementing its socialist agenda.
It’s a good thing we have Sen. Graham to work for the American people and cement President Trump’s legacy.
