Oppose Ryan Bounds
The Senate Judiciary Committee has voted along party lines to advance Oregon Assistant Attorney Ryan Bounds for full senate approval to confirm his lifetime appointment to the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals. His home state senators have objected to his nomination, which traditionally has always prevented an appointment from going ahead, but under Trump, these objections are overridden. Like other Trump nominees, Bounds espouses extreme right-wing views and leaves behind him a wake of racist and sexist speech and behavior.
Contact your Senators and ask them to:
a) oppose the nomination of Ryan Bounds to the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals; and
b) insist that the “blue slip” system be honored; the Senate Judiciary Committee should not consider the nomination of a candidate whose home state senators do not return blue slips of approval.
