McConnell: No More Obama Federal Judicial Appointments

On Thursday’s “Hugh Hewitt Show,” Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) explained he did not anticipate the U.S. Senate would confirm any more of President Barack Obama’s federal judicial appointments with the exception of ones signed off on by a Republican Senator.

Partial transcript as follows:

HEWITT: And my last question goes to judicial nominations. I am one of those people who wouldn’t confirm another judge given the antics they pulled last year. But what is the situation vis-à-vis federal judicial nominations and the process in the Senate right now?

MCCONNELL: Well, so far, the only judges we’ve confirmed have been federal district judges that have been signed off on by Republican senators.

HEWITT: And so you expect that that will continue to be the case for the balance of this session?

MCCONNELL: I think that’s highly likely, yeah.
