Trump withdraws unqualified judicial nominee

Thank heavens. This guy was a completely unprepared and unqualified mess — much like Trump:

The nomination of Brett Talley, the Justice Department official in line for a lifetime judicial appointment, “will not be moving forward,” a Trump administration official told NPR Wednesday.

Talley had been rated “unanimously unqualified” for the post by the American Bar Association this year after an evaluation that questioned his experience. Talley had never argued a case, or even a motion, in federal court, he testified.

Even after Talley’s nomination advanced through the Senate Judiciary Committee on an 11-to-9 party-line vote, media reports and good government groups cast doubt on his credentials for the spot on the U.S. District Court in Alabama, along with raising questions about his alleged failures to disclose blog posts and his wife’s work in the Trump White House.

Talley, a Harvard Law School graduate, came to personify a wave of criticism over the Trump administration’s judicial selections.

    How is it that Trump has gotten 11 circuit court judges approved by congress in his first year in office and Obama only managed to get 3 confirmed in his?

    Didn’t the Democrats have control of both houses for the first 2 years of the Obama administration?

    It must come down to a difference in the priorities between these two men.

    Neo-liberal Democrats are failed idiots.
