Republican lawyers and lawmakers are operating collectively to install conservative judges at a rate not observed in decades.
The result could be a federal judiciary that is as partisan and polarized as Congress itself.
On today’s episode:
• Charlie Savage, a New York Instances reporter primarily based in Washington.
• Republicans are systematically filling appellate seats they held open for the duration of President Barack Obama’s final two years in office with a especially conservative group of judges with life tenure. Democrats have little power to stop them.
