There hasn’t been a criminal defense lawyer on the Supreme Court in 25 years. That’s a problem.

A criminal defense lawyer has not been part of the United States Supreme Court in over 25 years. This is problematic, since many of the cases are ones that concern criminal cases, yet there is no one on the bench to discuss represent those who provide a defense in those cases. The court has two ex-prosecutors currently, and if President Trump gets his appointment of Neil Gorsuch confirmed, the court will have a total of three, making up 1/3 of the justices.
