Senate CONFIRMS Trump Judge Eric Murphy to 6th Circuit Court of Appeals 52-46, Democrats ANGRY
Progress! We’re moving forward!
“The #Senate confirmed the nomination of Eric Murphy to the 6th U.S. Circuit Court on a party line vote of 52-46.
Not voting: Sens Jones & Perdue.
One more vote today; at 1:45 pm – Confirmation of the nomination of John Fleming to be Asst Sec of Commerce for Economic Development.”
“New: The Senate just voted 52-46 to make Eric Murphy (who is approx. 39-40, exact age unknown) a judge on the 6th Circuit Court of Appeals.
@realDonaldTrump has now put 90 judges on the U.S. courts for lifetime-tenured jobs.
54 district court judges, 34 circuit court judges, 2 Supreme Court justices.
These are young conservatives—mostly aged 40s or 50s, some 30s.
They will shape the law for generations.”
Democrats didn’t take kindly.
@SenSherrodBrown Republicans continue to put their thumbs on the scale of justice by nominating far-right, inexperienced judges who’ll put special interests ahead of the people of this country—like Eric Murphy & Chad Readler. Judges who’ll try to dismantle our rights.
We must always fight back.
