Biden’s Court Problem

How often it’s been said, judges guard the constitutional way of doing things. So it will go.

From the story: …the U.S. of 2021 will be very different than the Obama years in one key regard—or rather, in 233 regards. That’s the number of judges Mitch McConnell’s Senate has so far confirmed over the past four years, and Donald Trump’s most enduring legacy. Team Biden will struggle to replicate the Obama regulatory machine “because much of what they want to do will be well beyond any statutory or constitutional authority, and what we have now are a number of judges attuned to those issues and unafraid to hold the executive branch accountable,” says Don McGahn, Mr. Trump’s first White House counsel.

Our saving grace.
