According to this AP report, the Senate could confirm up to four appellate judges – Brown, Pryor, Griffin and McKeague – in the next week or so. The article also notes that Reid hopes confirming these four judges will put the issue behind him. It also (mistakenly) claims that confirming these four would take care of “almost all of the judges involved in the centrist agreement that averted a showdown over judicial filibusters.” Well, not exactly. The agreement itself addressed nominees Myers and Saad, and the negotiations also concerned Brett Kavanaugh and William Haynes. And then there’s Thomas Griffith, and Susan Neilson . . .
