Subject: OT: Wow! What an "accomplishment"
'Trump judge nominee, 36, who has never tried a case, wins approval of
Brett J. Talley, President Trump’s nominee to be a federal judge in
Alabama, has never tried a case, was unanimously rated “not qualified”
by the American Bar Assn.’s judicial rating committee, has practiced law
for only three years and, as a blogger last year, displayed a degree of
partisanship unusual for a judicial nominee, denouncing “Hillary Rotten
Clinton” and pledging support for the National Rifle Assn.
On Thursday, the Senate Judiciary Committee, on a party-line vote,
approved him for a lifetime appointment to the federal bench.
Talley, 36, is part of what Trump has called the “untold story” of his
success in filling the courts with young conservatives.
“The judge story is an untold story. Nobody wants to talk about it,”
Trump said last month, standing alongside Senate Majority Leader Mitch
McConnell (R-Ky.) in the White House Rose Garden. “But when you think of
it, Mitch and I were saying, that has consequences 40 years out,
depending on the age of the judge — but 40 years out.”'
Not only is this proof of just what an asshat, Trump is...
....how do Republican senators justify voting for a lifetime appointment
to the bench to a nominee who has not only never tried a case as a judge...
....but has never so much as argued a motion in court?
'“He’s practiced law for less than three years and never argued a
motion, let alone brought a case. This is the least amount of experience
I’ve seen in a judicial nominee,” said Kristine Lucius, executive vice
president of the Leadership Conference on Civil Rights.'
But not one of you right wing nuts will so much as squeak about this.
