Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., said Thursday that the Senate Judiciary Committee is moving at a "hurried pace" to approve President Donald Trump's judicial nominees, more quickly than when President Barack Obama's nominees were approved.

The committee, under chairman Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, advanced five federal appeals court nominees in November.

"I've served on the Judiciary Committee since January of 1993, and during my entire tenure our committee has never held hearings for five circuit court nominees in a single month," Feinstein said, according to the Washington Examiner.

"In fact, the committee considered just five circuit court nominees during the final two years of the Obama presidency. So only five were considered during Obama's final two years and now the committee is moving the same number of nominees in a single month," the senator added.

Grassley said to Feinstein that he would stay and listen to her comments after the committee had completed its work, the Examiner reported.

Sen. John Kennedy, R-La., also weighed in on Trump's judicial nominees, saying Wednesday that he would vote against Trump nominee Brett Talley "in a heartbeat."
