It’s been reported that the new, larger Republican Senate majority is going to exercise its power and downsize the Senate Judiciary Committee. It’s a brilliant plan for two different reasons.
The first reason is that fewer Democrat senators will have the opportunity to showboat and eat up precious time with the sort of antics they displayed in the confirmation hearings for Justice Kavanaugh. Confirmation of more federal judges at the district court and appeals court levels is the most important priority for Senate Republicans, and this proposal would streamline and therefore speed that process.
