Many people have speculated about why President Trump is taking so long to fight back against the Deep State.
Many people assume that Trump has evidence against many Deep State actors, but yet he continues to delay doing anything with it.
Perhaps the answer lies with the Federal Courts.
You see, what good would it do to bring a case if we just end up with a Roberts Moment (remember when Justice Roberts reportedly switched his vote to uphold Obamacare in that infamous ruling?)
So prevailing wisdom is that President Trump is first spending as much effort as possible to get good, quality, CONSTITUTIONAL judges in as many different Federal Court positions as possible!
Of course Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh were two big names, but did you know Trump has appointed a record number of other Federal judges?
Here's more detail from our friends over at MAGAvoter:
According to new information, President Trump and his administration achieved remarkable progress in appointing federal judges during the 2018 year, outpacing his five previous predecessors and shaping the US court system in a major way.
While Trump’s record pace of confirming federal judges has alarmed many of his progressive-leftist critics, his conservative allies view the move as a powerful benefit to the country, and one which will impact the nation for years to come.
Now, as Democrats prepare to take over control of the House on Thursday, conservatives see Trump’s appointment of federal judges as a way to bolster his support among voters as 2020 draws ever nearer.
Trump’s confirmations have largely gone unreported by the mainstream media, who have focused more on his Supreme Court appointments, specifically the recently-confirmed Justice Brett Kavanaugh, whose confirmation hearings drew national attention in the fall.
And from the left-leaning NPR:
The Trump administration more than doubled the number of judges it confirmed to federal appeals courts in 2018, exceeding the pace of the last five presidents and stocking the courts with lifetime appointees who could have profound consequences for civil rights, the environment and government regulations.A new analysis by Lambda Legal, which advocates for the LGBT community, reports that five of the country's 12 circuit courts are now composed of more than 25 percent of Trump-appointed judges.
The report concludes that the 8th Circuit, which covers Arkansas, Iowa, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota and South Dakota, has experienced the "most significant transformation," followed by the 7th Circuit across the U.S. Midwest and the 5th Circuit, which spans Texas, Mississippi and Louisiana.
Those courts play a major role in shaping the law, since they are often the destination of last resort. The Supreme Court agrees to hear only a small percentage of the petitions it reviews.
"Judges protect what we value most in society. No matter who you are, where you come from, what you look like, or who you love, we all deserve judges who can be fair and impartial," said Sharon McGowan, legal director and chief strategy officer at Lambda Legal. "That's why protecting our courts needs to be a two-party job. Democrats and Republicans alike owe it to the American people to ensure that the federal courts remain an impartial institution administering 'equal justice for all,' not just the wealthy and the powerful."
Lambda Legal has closely followed the Trump judicial picks, because it argues the administration has been selecting candidates with a "hostility" toward LGBT people. That includes a judge who wrote that transgender people are "delusional," and another who sat on the board of the Nebraska Family Alliance, which advocated for conversion therapyand against marriage equality.To conservatives, the Trump approach to judges represents the administration's most enduring legacy and a central reason he won the White House. Many of the Trump nominees are members of the Federalist Society, an elite group that has made a point of creating a pipeline of future judges.
Last year, at its annual gala, the group honored former Trump White House counsel Don McGahn and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell — a nod to their success in confirming federal judges. In a year-end fundraising letter for 2018, the Society reported that its network now numbers 75,000 people and "we are on the eve of closing a calendar year that was hardly imaginable in our early days."
It continued: "Our members--students, lawyers, law professors, legislators, public officials and more--are filling key positions in state and federal governments, in academia, and the private sector."
The trend on judges is likely to continue this year, since Republicans hold 53 seats in the Senate. McConnell often points to confirming judges as a key success of the GOP-controlled Senate since Trump was elected. It's a message that may have boosted the enthusiasm of conservative voters in the midterm elections, particularly with the heated confirmation battle over Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh coming just weeks earlier.
Since Democrats won control of the House, effectively blocking the conservative legislative agenda for two years, confirming judges and other presidential appointees in the Senate is perhaps the clearest avenue for Trump to advance his agenda before facing re-election in 2020.
