MORE JUDGES - President Trump is poised to gain his fifth and sixth judicial appointments to the Ninth Circuit. The Senate Judiciary Committee is scheduled today to vote on the confirmations of Daniel Collins, a partner at Munger Tolles, and Kenneth Lee, a partner at Jenner & Block. California’s Democratic Sens. Dianne Feinstein and Kamala Harris have declined to return blue slips that indicate their sign-off. If confirmed by the full Senate, Collins and Lee will join four other Trump appointees to the Ninth Circuit, which has 29 judicial slots. The court currently has four vacancies.

BACK TO REALITY - Where will Mueller and his team land now that their report into Russian election tampering is wrapped up? Ryan Lovelace reports that including Mueller, 74, the special counsel team had four former Wilmer partners. The legendary tight lips of the group are not revealing their next move, but odds are that Wilmer could get at least some of them back. Other team members are expected to return to their previous government posts.
