Unqualified Federal Judge Nomination Story Gets Even Better

November 13, 2017 By: El Jefe Category: Judiciary

Remember how we talked over the weekend about Brett Talley, the unqualified man-child nominated by Cheeto Jesus to the Federal Bench?  Well.  A little detail came out today that he conveniently omitted from his Justice Department disclosure…Talley happens to be married to…wait for it, Ann Donaldson, the chief of staff to the White House counsel, Donald F. McGahn II.  That’s right, folks – Donald Trump just nominated, and the Judiciary Committee just approved, a candidate for a lifetime federal judgeship who has NEVER argued ANY case in court, has been out of law school for three years, worked in the Justice Department office that determines judiciary nominees, AND is married to a current White House lawyer.

Outside of his obvious profound lack of qualifications, I think I just counted THREE blatant and easily disqualifying conflicts of interest for this nominee.  The corruption and incompetence of this administration is like none I’ve ever witnessed – or even read about.

Judicial Branch Removed from whitehouse.gov

Charles Johnson of the conservative website Little Green Footballs pointed out yesterday another alarming move by Cheeto Jesus’s administration – the removal of the judicial branch from the official website, whitehouse.gov.  Here’s the tweet from Johnson:

Steve Bannon, avowed racist and Cheeto’s extreme right hand man, is a big fan of Andrew Jackson, another white supremacist who defied the courts to maintain racist policies.  Looks like the ghost of Old Hickory is back; there’s even a portrait of Jackson now hanging in the Oval Office.  The removal of reference to the judicial branch on the website is not an oversight; it’s intentional and likely the first shot in a constitutional crisis that Bannon is trying to incite.  Here’s the web address so you can see for yourself.
