Democratic Sen. Feinstein says judicial nominee has conflict

Democratic Sen. Feinstein says judicial nominee has conflict

Donaldson is chief of staff to White House counsel Donald McGahn.

Talley did not name Donaldson in response to a question on the questionnaire asking him to list any "family members or other persons, parties, categories of litigation, and financial arrangements that are likely to present potential conflicts-of-interest".

President Trump nominated Talley in September.

.

Mr. McGahn has played a key role in helping Mr. Trump transform the federal bench by filling vacancies with young, deeply conservative judges. She was recently interviewed by investigators as part of Special Counsel Mueller probe's examination of Russian interference in the 2016 election (with an emphasis placed on the firing of former Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey), according to reports. The probe into possible obstruction of justice is a part of Mueller's wider investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election. Dick Durbin (D-IL), a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, asked Talley in another written questionnaire. But a White House official said Ms. Donaldson was not involved in that process.

Talley had a prolific online media presence prior to his nomination; Talley referred to Hillary Clinton as "Hillary Rotten Clinton" on his public Twitter account which has since been made private, and pledged his total support for the National Rifle Association one month after the Sandy Hook school shooting where a gunman killed 20 elementary school children in Newtown, Connecticut in 2013.

Talley, who now serves in the Justice Department's office of legal policy, has never tried a case and has only practiced law for about three years.

The White House has pushed back on the "not qualified" label. He's the fourth Trump nominee to receive a "not qualified" rating from the American Bar Association and the second to receive the rating unanimously from the group.

Talley is now a deputy assistant attorney general in the Office of Legal Policy at the Justice Department.

The attorney appointed to a federal district seat is unqualified and biased, and yet, Republicans in the Senate Judiciary Committee have confirmed him. Almost 8% of Trump's nominees screened by the ABA have received the "not qualified" label, a much higher rate than the judicial nominees of past presidents, such as Presidents George H.W. Bush, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, and Barack Obama.
