    The U.S. Senate has confirmed yet another Donald Trump nominee to a federal appeals court vacancy, this one on the liberal Ninth Circuit in San Francisco, further solidifying what may become the president’s longest-lasting legacy, balancing the federal courts.

    President Donald Trump is scoring quiet victories with federal court nominations.

    The confirmation of Judge Kenneth K. Lee was not without opposition, which included some remarks that question Lee’s qualifications. Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), ranking member on the Senate Judiciary Committee, was quoted by the Washington Times asserting, “Lee’s record shows that he is far outside the legal mainstream.”

    Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-NY) said all three judicial nominees currently being considered for court slots are “extremists,” according to the newspaper.

    “We have a parade of narrow ideologues, and that’s not who should be on the bench because they will make law rather than interpret the law,” Schumer reportedly stated.

    But Lee, a native of South Korea, got high marks from supporters. Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) reportedly attended law school with Lee, and called him “a brilliant lawyer” and “a man of high character.”
