Jeff Flake Keeps Promise to Stall Judicial Nominations Until Robert Mueller Protection Receives Vote

  • Robert Mueller must be protected or nominations for federal judgeships will remain stalled, Senator Jeff Flake promised on Nov. 14.
  • Flake has frequently clashed with and spoken out against President Donald Trump’s behavior in the ongoing investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential elections, as well as some of Trump’s incendiary statements about race and foreign policy.
  • However, following midterm elections disastrous for the GOP and Trump’s subsequent successful demand for Attorney General Jeff Sessions’s resignation, Flake said on the Senate floor Nov. 14 that he wanted a bill advanced for a vote that would restrict Trump’s ability to fire Special Counsel Mueller.
  • Flake’s refusal—coupled with Democrats standing united in opposition—has meant none of President Donald Trump’s lifetime judicial nominations can advance in the current congressional session.
  • The GOP retained and slightly expanded its majority in the Senate in midterm elections, rising from 51 seats to 53.
