Senator Rubio Trolls Democrats: Guess What We Did While You Were Impeaching Trump
While the Democrats have been wasting time working on impeaching President Trump the Senate has been very busy.
While Democrats like Rep. Rashida Tlaib were laughing her way to vote on impeachment, the Republicans were getting down to business. The Republicans in the Senate have been using their time to confirm more of the President’s judicial nominees.
On Monday while Schumer was whining about wanting things fair McConnell file cloture on 13 of President Trump’s district court picks.
Republicans in the Senate have confirmed 174 judges this year and have almost turned the tide of the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals. McConnell has been on the record saying the best thing long term the Republican Party can do is get as many judges appointed as possible.
Last night Senator Marco Rubio posted, “Today in the Senate we worked on things that matter to Americans. We continued filling vacancies in the judiciary with good judges. Tomorrow we will confirm more judges & a deputy Sec of State & we will fund the govt for rest of the fiscal year.”

Other Republicans also decided to join in and poke fun at the Democrats while the Senate gets things done.
The Senate confirmed 12 district judges today, bringing President @realDonaldTrump to 187 Article III judges:
– Justices Gorsuch and Kavanaugh
– All-time record 50 circuits
– 133 districts
– 2 int’l trade court

So, Nancy, you can hold onto those articles of impeachment all she wants, let’s let the Senate continue to reshape the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals and other districts in our country. Thank you, Democrats, for giving the Senate Republicans the time to send more constitutional judges to lifetime appointments.
