2020 Recent Vote
The Senate considered President Trump’s nomination of Justin Walker to be U.S. Circuit Court judge for the D.C. Circuit. Circuit courts are often the ultimate arbiters of highly significant cases, including those involving environmental protections, and it is critical that the judges confirmed to serve lifetime appointments on these courts are qualified, non-partisan, and committed to treating parties fairly. Walker is a hyper-partisan who lacks the temperament or experience to serve fairly as a judge, selected for his connections and willingness to fulfill partisan political goals on the bench. A former McConnell intern who appeared on Fox News dozens of times in defense of Justice Kavanaugh and the president, Walker is not a serious choice for one of the most powerful federal courts. On June 18, the Senate confirmed Walker to the D.C. Circuit by a vote of 51-42 (Senate roll call vote 123). NO IS THE PRO-ENVIRONMENT VOTE.
