The Senate Judiciary Committee will consider five federal judicial nominees Wednesday, including federal prosecutor Pamela Ki Mai Chen. Chen, who was nominated in August by President Obama for a seat on the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of New York, would be the first-ever openly LGBT Asian-American person to serve federal judge. Senate Republicans — already blockading every single appeals court nominee — have indicated they may block all district court nominees until after the election as well.
