The Senate will be focusing exclusively on judicial nominations this week, all of which are Court of Appeals nominations.
1 to the 5th Circuit
1 to the 6th Circuit
3 to the 7th Circuit
1 to the 10th Circuit
Added to the 15 Court of Appeals nominees already in place, that would bring Trump to 21 Court of Appeals Judges.
3rd Circuit: 1 Trump Judge in place.
5th Circuit: 3 Trump Judges in place, 1 about to come on board.
6th Circuit: 3 Trump Judges in place, 1 about to come on board.
7th Circuit: 1 Trump Judge in place, 3 about to come on board.
8th Circuit: 3 Trump Judges in place.
10th Circuit: 1 Trump Judge in place, 1 about to come on board.
11th Circuit: 2 Trump Judges in place.
D.C. Circuit: 1 Trump Judge in place.
Trump has not appointed any Judges to the 1st, 2nd, 4th, 9th or Federal Circuits.
The 5th & 8th Circuits were already conservative dominated, nevertheless, they will likely become even more noticeably conservative. Trump has shifted the balance of power on the 6th and 7th Circuits from liberal to conservative. Trump has not made a noticeable impact on the other Courts of Appeals to which he has successfully appointed Judges to this point.
