BREAKING: The 9th Circuit Court Is Panicking!

President Trump has put the 9th Circuit Court on notice and now they are urging senators not to pass legislation to break its power.

The Washington Examiner reported: Judges from the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals are urging senators not to pass legislation to break up that district, which President Trump said was in a state of “chaos.”

Two judges met privately with Republican senators in Washington recently to urge opposition to a court-splitting bill proposed by Republican Arizona Sens. Jeff Flake and John McCain, according to multiple GOP Senate aides. Flake’s staff said the judges also have requested a meeting with Flake.

Trump trashed the 9th Circuit last month after its three-judge panel blocked implementation of his immigration ban. Trump also touted the court’s high reversal rate, a statistic cited by the legislation’s authors in explaining why dividing the court is necessary.

Flake and McCain’s legislation pits the Republican authors of the bill against two GOP-appointed federal judges: Ronald Reagan-appointed Alex Kozinski and George W. Bush-appointed Carlos Bea, who made the trip to Washington. Persuadable Republican senators caught in the crosshairs could determine the court’s fate.

The Judicial Administration and Improvement Act of 2017 would create a new 12th Circuit Court of Appeals covering Alaska, Arizona, Idaho, Montana, Nevada and Washington state. The states remaining in the new 9th Circuit would include California, Oregon, Hawaii and the territories of Guam and the Northern Mariana Islands.
