Putting Judge Neil Gorsuch on the Supreme Court will just be the start.
While the mainstream media won’t mention it, President Trump actually has an opportunity to rebuild the entirety of the disastrous, heavily-opinionated federal courts.
Nominating Gorsuch was a huge step, but more that 13 percent of all lifetime judiciary positions still remain vacant. The question now is, “How quickly will he appoint?”
The Daily Caller reports:
The U.S. Court of Appeals currently has 18 vacancies, the District courts have 91, the Court of International Trade has 2 vacant seats, and the Court of Federal Claims has 6. Many of these picks would have the potential to change the balance of several U.S. courts.
Right now, less than half of the judges on the Circuit Courts of Appeals and only about 35 percent of judges on District courts were appointed by a Republican president.
While a judge’s ideology usually does not impact decisions in most District court cases, Circuit Court judges have a lot more room to apply their own opinions in their rulings — as seen with the recent 9th district ruling against Trump’s temporary immigration ban.
