Andrew Brasher, Trump’s 51st federal appeals court judge, has been confirmed by the Senate. Brasher will take office with the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, according to the Washington Times.
Senators voted along party lines, 52-43.
“My motto for the year is ‘leave no vacancy behind,’” said Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. After the vote, he also pitched four more judges for consideration later this week. They will likely be confirmed by the end of this week. Approximately 25 more district court nominees are waiting for confirmation, as well.
Trump has hit a record number of confirmations: 51 federal appeal court judges, 133 federal district court judges, and two Supreme Court judges.
“The smears by Senate Democrats and their leftwing allies against Judge Andrew Brasher are disgusting—but I’d expect nothing less from them. And thankfully, Judge Brasher (age 38) will soon be promoted to the 11th Circuit—for the rest of his long, long life,” said Mike Davis, president of the Article III Project.
