Harris, Feinstein fume after White House re-nominates two conservative California judges

I am surprised this is not here already.
www.foxnews.com...
This,imo, is THE most important job Trump has been given with his presidency.
He has already made 2 SCOTUS picks and changed the face of the SCOTUS for a generation.



California Democratic Sens. Dianne Feinstein and Kamala Harris lashed out at the White House after President Trump, under pressure from conservative activists, re-nominated two conservative California judges to the 9th Circuit federal appeals court over their opposition. “We are deeply disappointed that the White House has chosen to re-nominate Daniel Collins and Kenneth Lee to the 9th Circuit,” Feinstein and Harris said in a joint statement late Wednesday. “We made clear our opposition to these individuals and told the White House we wanted to work together to come to consensus on a new package of nominees.”

It appears now he will have a meaningful impact on the 9th Circuit, the most liberal activist of the appeals courts.



The White House announced the nomination of Collins and Lee, among other judicial designees. Daniel A. Bress was also nominated to the 9th Circuit. The nomination of Collins and Lee bypasses the traditional "blue-slip" process in which the senators of the home state of the nominee give their consent to the pick.

After the shenanigans pulled with the Kavanaugh hearing why would these 2 "ladies" expect to be part of any selection process?



On Thursday, Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham, the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, praised Trump's nomination of Collins, Lee and Bress. “I’m very supportive of the nominees submitted by President Trump to serve on the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals. These are highly qualified nominees and I am hopeful they will receive wide bipartisan support,” Graham said. “These nominations continue a trend by the Trump Administration of selecting highly qualified men and women to serve on the federal bench.”

Perhaps the Senate will get off its butt and fill these vacancies?

Tone deaf, absolutely not even remotely aware of how this looks to most people.

So now nancy wants to "work together to come to a consensus".

I wish people would vote out all these lifers and get rid of this cabal.

We should all vote for Bloomberg in the primaries since nobody is running against Trump. Most likely wouldn't make a difference since the Democrats rig their elections anyway, but worth a shot to not have Kamala as the front runner. That woman wants to take all our money and redistribute it.

They want, as does every minority party in either house, bi-partisan work...

Until they get the majority back, then all that talk ceases. Dems want it now, when the GOP is second fiddle, they'll want it.

Awwwww, Feinstein and Harris are mad at Trump for breaking tradition? He hurt their feelings.

Perhaps they shouldn't have tried to torpedo his Kavanaugh pick like they totally did.

Politics hurts when you play full contact.

We see plainly how "Bipartisan" the Pelosi led house is. It's it the epitome of working together.

Someone tell those hags that 'Murica ain't Burger King.

In a 'democracy' they're not always gonna get it their way.
