Biden's fight to de-Trumpify the courts, explained

Joe Biden probably knows more about picking judges than any new president in American history.

A longtime member and former chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee, Biden oversaw hundreds of judicial confirmations. He chaired the 1987 hearing that successfully convinced the Senate to reject Judge Robert Borkís nomination to the Supreme Court; then presided over a far less successful hearing that preceded Justice Clarence Thomasís confirmation in 1991.

As president, heís approached judicial selection with a seriousness of purpose that hasnít been seen in a Democratic White House since at least the Carter administration. With eight Biden judges currently sitting on the federal bench, including three court of appeals judges, Bidenís appointed more judges at this point in his presidency than any newly elected president since Richard Nixon.

Bidenís nominated 22 more, and he has the potential to shape much of the federal bench very rapidly. Currently, there are 82 vacancies throughout the federal judiciary, nearly 10 percent of the bench, although most of these vacancies are on relatively low-ranking district courts.
