MSNBC Panel: Trump Put in Place Staggering Number of Judges, It Took Obama Eight Years to Put in 55
SMIKLE: "I do with this caveat. Undergirding I think a lot of the conversation about impeachment is the sort of stealthy activity that Mitch McConnell is engaged in. Judges, for example, while Donald Trump has been president of the United States, he has supported and nominated and put in place 157, if I remember correctly."
HOST: "Staggering number."
SMIKLE: "50 circuit court judges since he’s been president. It took Obama eight years to put in 55. So when we look at that number, it’s important to understand that part of the Democratic message shouldn’t just be about impeachment, although I think that’s important, particularly for the progressives. It’s also about governance.”
