Trump Marks Senate's 150th Judicial Confirmation

By    |   Friday, 13 September 2019 09:08 PM

The Senate confirmed President Donald Trump's 150th judicial nominee this week — bringing the total to 152, including two Supreme Court justices, a milestone lauded by Trump himself Friday.

"Historic Milestone indeed!" Trump said on Twitter, referencing a report from The Washington Examiner on the occasion.

The 150 milestone was reached on Wednesday, said Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham, R-S.C.

"I'm very pleased that the Senate has confirmed 150 federal judges thus far in President Trump's first term," Graham said in a statement. "This is a historic milestone.

"As Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, I will continue to push through highly qualified, conservative judges at all levels of the federal courts.

"These conservative judicial appointments will impact our nation for years to come," Graham said.

Trump's presidency includes the confirmation of more than 100 district judges, as well as 40 circuit judges and two Supreme Court, the Examiner reports.

The SCOTUS picks are Justices Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh.

In addition, the Senate also confirmed two district court judges first nominated by former Democratic president Barack Obama: Stephanie Gallagher in Maryland and Mary McElroy in Rhode Island.

They were confirmed under an agreement between Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., and Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., to approve judges in Republican and Democratic states, the Examiner reports.
