DEMAND JUSTICE STATEMENT REGARDING SENATE DEMOCRATS’ DEAL TO FAST-TRACK CONSIDERATION OF 15 MORE TRUMP JUDGES

WASHINGTON, DC—After Senate Democrats struck yet another deal with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to expedite another slew of lower-court judges nominated by President Trump, Demand Justice Chief Counsel Chris Kang released the following statement Thursday:

“This deal was totally unnecessary and it is a bitter pill to swallow so soon after the Kavanaugh fight that so many progressive activists poured their hearts and souls into. This period will be long remembered not just for the historic number of judges Trump has been able to confirm, but also because of how passive Democrats were in response. The progressive grassroots have awoken to the crisis of Trump’s takeover of the courts, and are not going to tolerate this kind of weakness for much longer.”
