Barr recounted numerous significant instances in which a coalition of primarily unelected bureaucrats have obstructed Trump’s use of presidential powers to an extent they never have for any other president.
Is there any reason that anonymous negative information from the American Bar Association should be discounted for Vanessa Bryant’s nomination but not for Lawrence VanDyke’s?
The first electoral cycle is that of presidential impeachments; the second is that of Supreme Court nominations. Soon the two cycles may intersect.
It would be both smart politics and good governance to update the list of SCOTUS contenders. When a vacancy emerges, whether before or after the election, who will be considered?
The same thing that so troubled Sen. Patrick Leahy in 2010 happened 25 times in the first eight months of 2019. Leahy not only failed to object, he actually led the effort.
Although the basics of the Brett Kavanaugh confirmation fight will be familiar to many readers, this skillful retelling provides many more details.
Contrasting the list of potential nominees Trump released during 2016, a new ad calls out Democratic candidates’ lack of specifics on the Supreme Court.
The battle of Bogren was about more than a judicial nominee for a district court in Michigan. It was a fight over whether Republicans will accept the mainstreaming of anti-religious bigotry.
Because he’s my cousin, I know that Bogren is respectful of persons of all faiths and a Catholic himself. From conversations over the years, I know he is a solid choice for the district court nomination, certainly no bigot.
The fusion of populism and conservatism as a workable and ideological political movement is emerging in the actions of two newly elected senators: Rick Scott and Josh Hawley.
They may not love him, but GOP activists should be throwing roses at Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell every day of the week.
Legal blog writer David Bernstein accused senators Josh Hawley and Mike Lee of racism for asking judicial nominee Neomi Rao tough questions. That’s preposterous.
All too often, lower courts have used a bad legal doctrine to stop states and local governments from protecting the unborn, even when Supreme Court case law would allow it.
Religious tests are unacceptable––we should never let people of faith be automatically disqualified from public service due to their closely held beliefs.
Both Neomi Rao and Patrick Bumatay have immense potential as conservative jurists. Democrats see that and are getting scared.
The left is fighting Neomi Rao’s nomination to U.S. Court of Appeals for the DC Circuit by dredging up op-eds she wrote as a college student.
Patrick Bumatay would be a highly qualified jurist and a strong conservative voice on the Ninth Circuit Court of appeals. We would be lucky to have him.
Brett Kavanaugh takes his seat amid debates about the Supreme Court’s ‘legitimacy,’ with substantial portions of the population thinking he’s a rapist.
New Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh spoke of leaving behind ‘bitterness’ to take office ‘with gratitude and no bitterness.’
