JUST IN: The White House has announced Trump's nominees for the 9th Circuit and CA district courts — two 9th Circuit renominations from last year (Collins and Lee), but one new one: Daniel Bress. Patrick Bumatay, last year nom'd for the 9th, is now up for a district court seat
The other three district court nominees are renominations from last year (Blumenfeld, Rosen, Scarsi). On the California nominations last year, and how they were the White House's way of taking a jab at Feinstein and Harris: buzzfeednews.com/article/zoetil…
We reported earlier this month that the CA nominations weren't on the mega-list of renominations previously announced because Feinstein was negotiating with the White House: buzzfeednews.com/article/zoetil… Have asked Feinstein's office for comment on the new list
Bress had been on the White House's original list of proposed 9th Circuit nominees: feinstein.senate.gov/public/index.c… Feinstein is still not getting any of the names she had pitched
Following up from last night: Feinstein and Harris are not happy the White House is going ahead with the administration's preferred picks for the 9th Circuit (but they're okay with the district court nominees, calling it a "balanced compromise")
