Obama appointed WAY too many liberal judges who legislate from the bench. Activist judges. Need to be rid of them all. Sooner we clean up the judicial system, the sooner we can streamline the grand jury - indictment - conviction process to put all these swamp criminals away

That is good news. We are making some progress. 15 lifetime judges that will uphold the constitution. We just need to make sure we take care of business in November, so we can continue the momentum.

Although, is it really good news? If they're saying that they gave in because the Repubs would have gotten the 15 by November anyways, why would you let them go without asking for more? Wasting their time and preventing them from campaigning in close races is worth more than taking a deal for what you would already get.

I meant it is good news they got the 15 judges approved, but I get your point. I should have stated it better. Just my opinion, but I don't think the extra time will help them.

This looks like a political calculation that determined that the negative optics of forcing the Dems to stay in town as we slowly confirm one judge every 30 hours was more detrimental than letting the lunatics go home and pander to their shrinking base.

I call BS. They weren't tied to 30 hr rule. Dems could have moved it quicker if they wanted.
I think this is a tell they know something is about to go down. I'm glad though. WWG1WGA! MAGA!

Democrats agree to confirmations of 15 Trump judges - POLITICO

'So Democrats OK’d an offer to confirm three Circuit Court judges and 12 Circuit Court judges as the price to pay to go home for election season. '

'Senate Democrats accepted an offer Thursday from Senate Republicans to confirm 15 lifetime federal judges in exchange for the ability to go into recess through the midterms, allowing endangered Democrats to campaign. '

'McConnell and President Donald Trump will now have confirmed 84 judges over the past two years, including two Supreme Court nominees, after the deal. '

'Senate Democrats have privately argued it’s in the party’s best interest to allow quick confirmation of judges in order to let endangered red state senators go home and campaign. '

'Democrats also allowed a package of judges to be confirmed in August as a condition of going home. '

This has been an automated message.

Screw their campaigns. Drain the swamp, people. Do not vote for incumbents.

The crux of any news article is always in the last paragraph...

“I give Mitch McConnell all the credit in the world for his perseverance,” Perdue said. But he added that the backlog of executive branch nominees mean “the administration hasn’t been able to form it’s government yet ... I’m ready to stay here next week, the next couple of weeks, whatever it takes.”

Now that was a slight of hand. Not one of them mentioned that they did that. Ha hahha, better go home and campaign you are going to need it. Isn't this typical of them. Votes are more important than integrity. Hahahahah hahahha
