Source: The Hill

“President Trump on Monday released his first batch of judicial nominees as he seeks to make his mark on the federal court system. Trump is nominating 10 judges, including two candidates he had previously floated for the Supreme Court, Joan Larsen and David Straus. … White House press secretary Sean Spicer said the nominees were ‘chosen for their deep knowledge of the law’ and their commitment to upholding constitutional principles. The White House says more judicial nominees will be coming in the months ahead as the administration works to fill the more than 120 vacancies in the lower courts.” (05/08/17)
