What do you think about Senator Mitch McConnell telling Reagan, Bush I, & Bush II appointed federal judges to consider retiring now so Trump can appoint younger judges to the federal bench?
If true, it’s a shrewd political move. ‘Probably not the first time it’s been tried.
It’s a shame that the appointment of judges is so politically influenced. It’s a shame a judge’s political loyalty becomes one of the most, if not the most, important considerations in choosing a judge, instead of pure judicial competence. I’m a political and social conservative, but I’d rather see competent politically liberal judges who are so competent that they don’t let politics affect their judgment than have a less-competent politically conservative judge on the bench who puts politics before the impartial administration of the law.
