Mitch McConnell will work to confirm 13 lifetime appointed judges to the federal bench as Democrats in the House vote to impeach President Trump.

According to The Daily Wire:

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is set to give Democrats a harsh reminder that elections have consequences on Wednesday as the Senate is expected to begin the process of confirming 13 judges to lifetime appointments on the federal courts.

 

Bloomberg Law reports that McConnell has the following judges on his schedule to confirm:

Matthew McFarland for the Southern District of Ohio;
Anuraag Singhal for the Southern District of Florida;
Karen Marston for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania;
Daniel Traynor for the District of North Dakota;
John M. Gallagher for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania;
Bernard Maurice Jones II for the Western District of Oklahoma;
Mary Kay Vyskocil for the Southern District of New York;
Kea Whetzal Riggs for the District of New Mexico;
Lewis J. Liman for the Southern District of New York;
Gary Richard Brown for the Eastern District of New York;
Robert J. Colville for the Western District of Pennsylvania;
Jodi Dishman for the Western District of Oklahoma;
Stephanie Dawkins Davis for the Eastern District of Michigan.


The move by McConnell comes as Democrats begin the process of impeaching President Donald Trump on Wednesday in a partisan effort over what they claim amounts to obstruction of Congress and abuse of power.

McConnell has already stated that the Democrats lack the evidence to remove President Trump from office.
