President Biden is staging his own operation warp speed, except he is getting judges confirmed and seated at a fast pace.
Biden Is Getting His Judges Confirmed And Seated Faster Than Any President In 40 Years.
Biden isn’t wasting time as he remakes the Judicial Branch:
Nine of Biden’s 33 nominees have already been confirmed, seven of whom were sworn in in the month of July alone, and another 14 are awaiting floor votes in the Senate.
Those numbers put Biden ahead of any president in the past 40 years at this point in their first year, said Russell Wheeler, a fellow with the Brookings Institution who studies judicial confirmations.
