No one on the courts should be appointed by this president until he is cleared by the ongoing investigation.
Federalist Society. That is all that you need to know.
Please vote yes on Paul Matey’s nominations for the Third circuit court of Appeals.
No more judges under Trump
I support the confirmation of this nominee, and I would ask that you do the same. Thank you sir, Daniel Odum.
I oppose wait till everyone is cleared and Republicans start doing there job for what they were voted in for the American people
not enough experience. quit stacking the court with inexperienced legal hacks.
I am very uncomfortable with this administration "stacking" the courts. It invites further corruption.
Republican Cult hack - he’s being chosen over better qualified candidates because he will rule as he’s told to politically.
I fully support the confirmation of Paul Matey to our 3rd circuit court of appeals. Keep those confirmations coming McConnell. #MAGA
Let's get the Pres nominees confirmed and let's stop playing political games.
We currently have a legal system load of work, which is overburdened and lacking in justice. This candidate has sincerity in process. He is qualified. Vote yes.
Just another part of the Republican plan to stack the courts with conservative judges. That’s not fair representation. The judge appointment was affiliated with an LGBTQ hate group. These judge appointments will not represent ALL AMERICANS, only the conservative Christian agenda. Republicans don’t allow judge appointments when Democrats are in control, specifically so they can stack the courts. We need to eliminate life-time appointments and instead set term limits. And this should apply to judges AND politicians.
Whatever happened to “We the People”? Perhaps, we the people should have a vote for those that are about to be appointed, since our representatives don’t care about constituents.
Stop with the resisting do nothing policies, approve qualified nominees. The majority of the bar deemed him qualified and the others are playing politics.
We need conservative people who will follow the Constitution.
Just one more in a long line of zealots of the Federalist Society, being packed into the courts by a Senate that wouldn’t give more qualified candidates the time of day for 6 yrs.
Another far right Federalist society disgrace to our courts
Blind liberal logic on this app is amusing. All the non relevant opinions and distorted facts about this nomination from the anti Trumpers is exactly why we seeing this. Read the facts and history of this nomination and notice Booker and Menendez did not respond due to continued Dem partisanship not his qualifications.
