Back in the United States, the Senate has confirmed two more of President Trump’s nominees to the federal bench. Neomi Rao will replace Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh on the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals. She’s a former law professor and clerk for Justice Clarence Thomas who’s backed by the archconservative Federalist Society. Also confirmed this week is Paul Matey, who previously served as legal counsel to ex-New Jersey Republican Governor Chris Christie. He’ll serve on the U.S. 3rd Circuit Court in Philadelphia. Their confirmations mean one out of every five appeals court judges have been nominated by President Trump.
