Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is planning to send a harsh reminder to Democrats on Wednesday as the House votes on the articles of impeachment, that elections have consequences, and this could happen to a Democrat president in the future.

This reminder comes on the heals of the Senate confirming 13 judges to lifetime appointments on federal courts.

Here’s more details from Daily Wire:

The Senate Cloakroom, which is controlled by the Republicans, tweeted: “Under the regular order, at 10:30 am, on Wednesday, December 18th, the Senate will proceed to a roll call vote on the motion to invoke cloture on Executive Calendar #382, Matthew Walden McFarland, of Ohio, to be United States District Judge for the Southern District of Ohio.”

The Senate Cloakroom continued: “Absent a unanimous consent agreement, two roll call votes (cloture/confirmation) will occur every two hours during tomorrow’s session of the Senate on the District Judge nominations (13 District Judges) that Leader McConnell filed cloture on during Monday’s session of the Senate.”

Bloomberg Law provides a list of the judges that are going to be confirmed:

Matthew McFarland for the Southern District of Ohio;
Anuraag Singhal for the Southern District of Florida;
Karen Marston for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania;
Daniel Traynor for the District of North Dakota;
John M. Gallagher for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania;
Bernard Maurice Jones II for the Western District of Oklahoma;
Mary Kay Vyskocil for the Southern District of New York;
Kea Whetzal Riggs for the District of New Mexico;
Lewis J. Liman for the Southern District of New York;
Gary Richard Brown for the Eastern District of New York;
Robert J. Colville for the Western District of Pennsylvania;
Jodi Dishman for the Western District of Oklahoma;
Stephanie Dawkins Davis for the Eastern District of Michigan.

The confirmations come as Democrats have begun the process of voting to impeach President Donald Trump in what has amounted to a partisan effort to boot him from office over flimsy claims of obstruction of Congress and abuse of power.

McConnell has already stated this week he’s going to shut down any attempts the Democrats make to remove Trump from office because the Democratic Party lacks the evidence to convict Trump in a Senate trial.
