Third Circuit Becomes First Federal Circuit To ‘Flip’ Control Under Trump

The Daily Wire

Excerpt:

Yesterday, the U.S. Senate confirmed, by a 54-45 vote, Paul Matey to be a judge on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit. The Third Circuit has federal appellate jurisdiction for the states of Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Delaware. With the confirmation of Matey, the Third Circuit becomes the first of the 13 federal appellate circuits to "flip" control under President Donald Trump from majority Democratic nominees to majority Republican nominees.

USA Today reports:

For the first time, [Trump] turned a federal appeals court previously dominated by Democratic presidents' nominees into one with a majority of Republican presidents' choices.

Senate confirmation of Paul Matey to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit, with jurisdiction over Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Delaware, gave Trump and his GOP predecessors in the White House a 7-6 majority there. ...

Matey, 48, a former top counsel to New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, became Trump's 35th appeals court nominee to reach the bench with seven more pending, continuing a record pace. The Senate also has confirmed 53 of Trump's picks for federal district courts, with another 54 nominees pending.

As conservatives know all too well, the partisan identity of a nominating president is hardly an even remotely reliable indicator of a judge's methodology and exegetical approach, once firmly ensconced on the bench. As but one example, despite having a firm "partisan" majority on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit, Second Amendment supporters were left disappointed last summer when the Fifth Circuit upheld, via an en banc vote, a controversial anti-gun federal statute.

Regardless, conservative legal commentator Ed Whelan, writing at National Review's "Bench Memos" blog, has a full breakdown today of the current composition of the federal appellate courts based on the partisan identity of the judges' nominating presidents (with "V" standing for "vacancy"):

Except when nominated by a democrat.

When some people ask me why I would vote for Trump this is always my first response. Imagine for a second *shudder* that Hillary was president.
