Despite Objections, Senate Confirms Trump Court Pick Kenneth Lee

According to a report by Huffpost, on Wednesday, the Senate confirmed Kenneth Lee to a lifetime federal judgeship over the objections of both of his home-state senators and despite his past controversial writings on sexism, AIDS, LGBTQ rights, slavery and Native Americans. The 43 year-old Lee reportedly won confirmation on a 52-45 vote to the Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit, headquartered in San Francisco.
