Demand Justice Statement on Confirmation of More Trump Judges


Demand Justice Chief Counsel Christopher Kang released the following statement Thursday in response to the Senate confirming 13 Trump judicial nominees this week: "While all eyes were understandably on impeachment, Mitch McConnell's conveyor belt churned out a shocking number of judges this week in what remains the most underrated story of the Trump era. Trump's hijacking of our judiciary will be his most enduring legacy, and it will continue to threaten everything progressives care about long after he leaves office."

Demand Justice is a progressive movement fighting to restore the ideological balance and legitimacy of the federal courts by advocating for court reform and vigorously opposing extreme nominees.
