The Daily Beast: Biden Follows Trump’s Lead and Races to Line Up His Judges
This excerpt is from a piece that originally ran on January 7, 2020.
Daniel Goldberg with the liberal group Alliance for Justice calls the letter from the incoming White House counsel “a welcome signal” that the Biden administration will prioritize judges in a way that past Democratic administrations haven’t. And it’s not just the White House, he says, as Democratic senators “are energized like they haven’t been in the past to make quick nominations and to fight for confirmation. It makes obstructionism harder if they’re sending up names now and putting pressure on McConnell.”
