Today I spent time with John Cornyn and Ted Cruz!

I had to attend an Investiture (swearing in) of another new Trump federal judgeship. When I arrived there were cops and Homeland Security everywhere. I did not know at the time the two worst Senators in this country would be there along with almost all the judges in Texas.

I listened to them brag about the 150 federal judges they have sworn in since Trump went into office. They say they only have one open bench in Texas and hope to have it filled and take the filled positions to 100 percent, something that has not happened in many decades. It was sickening to watch and hear them gloat.

The worst part was from Ted Cruz (of course it was). He spoke about how the new judge would no longer be a Republican because we (USA) uphold the Rule of Law. Cruz added that the new judge would rule based on the law and the facts with no partisanship. The people around me were upset with me when I muttered a little too loudly “So this means you will vote to impeach Trump?”

We can never let the Republicans hold up our judicial nominees again. I rarely practice in federal court and yet I currently have cases in front of 4 Trump appointed federal judges!

1. You have given us a priceless look at what happens out of public view, normally.

It's fascinating and appalling all at the same time.

I'm curious as to what kinds of cases you practice, if you're allowed to say, of course.

Thank you for your very interesting post!

2. I mainly handle mass torts like plant explosions, BP oil spill, defective products, but

also accidents and other odd ball stuff like the Waco biker shootout at the Twin Peaks (civil rights violation).

It is just amazing how they can be so hypocritical with a straight face!

6. Can't believe there are 150 conservative judges out

there. The good news is maybe they've run out?

10. Some will be worse than expected, a few will surprise, and most

will settle into stark but subdued conservatism. They won't all be crusaders.
