Who appoints federal judges?

Video Transcription

Federal judges are nominated by the President of the United States. They have to be approved by both senators of the state in which they reside. It’s very, very political, and oftentimes people who have been outspoken on good causes, or bad causes, don’t get approved. You find that in the federal judiciary you very often get lawyers appointed who have really not taken strong stands on important issues of the day. It’s very, very unfortunate. These federal judges are appointed for life; they’re called Article 3 judges. Whether they’re federal judges at the trial level, called United States district judges, or at the appellate level, called federal appeal judges, or the United States Supreme Court, they’re called justices, they serve for life. It’s critical, and I always tell my friends regardless of your politics, when it comes to presidential elections it’s all about the United States Supreme Court.
