The Senate just made a nearly unanimous decision and the DC swamp is stunned. President Trump has won big again, despite the petty actions of two Democrat holdouts.
William Nardini was easily confirmed by the Senate this week to fill a vacant spot on the U.S. Second Circuit Court of Appeals. Trump’s nominee won in a landslide, with a vote of 86-2. But not everyone was pleased with the decision.
Senators Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) and Ed Markey (D-MA) issued voted against Nardini, but their reasoning was not immediately known — leading many to conclude that they were just ‘protest votes’ against Trump.
The Second Circuit Court of Appeals is a New York-based court and historically liberal. Hopefully, with Nardini on the court, some legal balance can be restored — even if some Democrats fight every step of the way.
In fact, the court is “now split evenly between nominees of both parties,” according to The Connecticut Mirror. This is welcome news and will benefit our judicial system for many years to come.
Before being nominated by Trump, Nardini served for 19 years in the Connecticut U.S. Attorney’s Office. He came highly recommended and, therefore, was “one of the strongest votes for an appellate court nominee,” said one legal analyst.
