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.

  1. But will the Republicans dig in or disqualify him?
    Unfortunately, these incompetents will probably try to rationalize this ridiculous situation and fight to keep him as judge.

    This is one of the most egregious abuses of power in White House history. I can’t imagine that even the rethugs can explain their way out of this. Especially as they have now come out against fellow rethug Roy Moore.

  3. Why not?
    For starters Republicans stole the seat for the last Supreme Court Justice .
    They started the Iraq war for the oil and self profit.
    Hell they even stole 3 whole Presidential elections.
    Why the heck not???

  5. This man-child is such an idiot that he FORGOT TO MENTION his wife on his informational statement to the Senate. Ya know, the one that asks about conflicts of interest?

    That should, at the very least, give cover to at least the three Senate amigos–McCain, Flake, and Porter–to nix this nomination. And, they will all look like heroes, too.

  6. “Conflict of what now? You don’t think that applies to US surely?”
