“I have actually been quite impressed with the Trump nominees to courts of appeals,” Katyal said at the Aspen Ideas Festival.
Neal Katyal said on Tuesday at the Aspen Ideas Festival that he thought President Trump had nominated “some of the most qualified people” of his generation to fill vacancies on the federal judiciary.
What makes Katyal’s comments newsworthy is that Katyal argued against Trump’s travel ban on behalf of the state of Hawaii in the Court of Appeals.
An audience member asked the panel, which Katyal was part of, if he thought whether the vetting process for federal judiciary vacancies is likely to produce qualified candidates in the future.
“I have actually been quite impressed with the Trump nominees to courts of appeals,” Katyal responded.
Katyal continued by telling the audience that Trump has nominated “some of the most qualified people in my generation, certainly conservative, but I think reasonable, smart, very accomplished individuals.”
“So that’s one…bright spot we have seen,” Katyal concluded.
