Donald Trump to nominate slate of conservative judges

Still, Committee for Justice President Curt Levey said Senate Democrats are likely to slow the confirmation process by “exploiting” debate time at “a record level.” He said Democrats also could try to defeat nominees “by abusing the ‘blue slip’ privileges granted to the two senators from each nominee’s home state.”

“If Democrats go that extreme, Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley [Iowa Republican] may be forced to curtail the 100-year-old blue slip tradition,” he said.

Mr. Levey noted that five of Mr. Trump’s first six expected nominees to federal appeals courts are younger than 50 years old.
