Trump Adds Two More GOP Judges To 9th Circuit Court Of Appeals in December

President Trump has continued his immense transformation of the nation’s courts in December.

Per OANN, President Trump has added conservative influence to the federal appeals court best known for its Democrat judges. The Senate officially confirmed the president’s decision to add two conservative judges to the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, which oversees cases in the western part of the U.S.

This month, Judges Lawrence VanDyke and Patrick Bumatay were appointed by President Trump. The court, which was once dominated by liberals, now has more than a third of the president’s appointees.

The Republican-majority chamber approved Patrick Bumatay, who previously worked as a U.S. attorney in Southern California, to a lifetime seat on the federal appeals court. The vote was 53-40.

The U.S. Senate also voted mostly along party lines to confirm Lawrence VanDyke to a lifetime appointment to the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals based in San Francisco.

Christmas Eve, President Trump tweeted:

187 new Federal Judges have been confirmed under the Trump Administration, including two great new United States Supreme Court Justices. We are shattering every record! Read all about this in “The Long Game,” a great new book by @senatemajldr Mitch McConnell. Amazing story!
