Trump Submits Nominees for Federal Judiciary

Jun 12, 2017

While fired FBI Director, James Comey, testified he felt President Trump might have tried to obstruct justice, President Trump submitted his fourth slate of federal judicial nominees. There are currently about 100 judicial vacancies. During the 2016 presidential campaign, candidate Trump promised to nominate federal judges with the same type of judicial philosophy as the late Justice Antonin Scalia. The vacancies within the judiciary allow President Trump to moderate the radical leftist direction of the federal courts. So far the president has nominate over 20 conservative candidates for district court positions.
