Hello and welcome back to Trump Watch. I’m your host Cogan Schneier, Washington, D.C.-based litigation reporter at the National Law Journal. It’s been a wild week here in our nation’s capital. The Senate is still in shock that a Democrat from Alabama will soon join their ranks, a major tax overhaul bill is nearing completion and Omarosa Manigault resigned from her job in the White House, though some press reports suggest she was fired (little bit of history repeating, right? See Episode 9 in Season 1 of “The Apprentice”).

But you know what’s been extra whackadoodle this week? Judicial nominations! Two of President Donald Trump’s judicial nominees will not be confirmed, the first of his picks to fail. What does it mean and why should you care? I’m breaking down all the #judgedrama in this week’s newsletter. Tips, comments, concerns? Email ‘em to me at [email protected] or tweet at me.
