The Answer (assuming that I understand the question) is "NO". Because Congress does not appoint Federal judges in the first place. Only the President does. The U.S. Senate, confirms the appointment. The President cannot delegate that power either to Congress, , or to other Federal judges. There are Magistrates in the Federal Court system. Are those the "judges" that you are referring to? Magistrate judges are authorized by 28 U.S.C. § 631 , and they are appointed by a majority vote of the federal district judges of a particular district. BTW, if this is for a school research paper, please tell me and I will opt out for someone who can assist in such a project.
