Biden gets 40 judges confirmed in first year, double Trump’s number | Washington Examiner

President Joe Biden is moving at twice the pace filing vacancies in federal court than his immediate predecessor during his first year in office, but the Democrat has a long way to go in catching up to Donald Trump’s total first-term number.

With the Senate confirming a raft of judicial nominees late Friday into early Saturday, Biden’s 2021 total was brought to 40 federal court nominees confirmed, which is 21 more than the 19 Trump had in 2017.
