Report: Republicans stacking federal courts with unqualified conservatives

May 14, 2018View for printing

Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee have released a report accusing their Republican colleagues of conspiring with President Donald Trump to reshape the federal judiciary by appointing judges whose only qualifications are youth and conservative ideology.

"President Trump and Senate Republicans are stacking our courts at record-breaking speed," said Senator Dianne Feinstein, the ranking Democrat on the committee and one of several signatories on the report. "Nominees have been largely controversial and incredibly young, allowing them to shape our courts for generations."
