President Trump and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell have one more judicial vacancy to fill, if they can act in time. A federal judge in Kansas who was appointed by Bill Clinton has tendered his resignation, effective April 1, for sexual misconduct in office, and for habitual lateness – both of them characteristics of the man who appointed him.
