They are gearing up to remove judges they think are liberal if tRump loses. They are trying to stop any attempt to return the court to a neutral balance. Notice the post is for five years so when Biden wins this asshole stays on the board. Hugs
The Hill reports:
The White House announced Friday that President Trump intends to appoint prominent conservative activist Tom Fitton to a judicial oversight agency that would grant him the power to unseat judges in Washington, D.C.,’s judiciary. Trump will tap Fitton to join the D.C. Commission on Judicial Disabilities and Tenure.
Fitton heads the group Judicial Watch, and has advocated for investigations into officials from the Obama administration. He has also warned of a “deep state” that is supposedly seeking to undermine Trump. He has also called for the elimination of certain coronavirus safety measures such as mask-wearing.
Fitton last appeared on JMG when he sued the NIH to dig up dirt on Anthony Fauci. As you can see at the extensive Wikipedia entry for Judicial Watch, they subscribe to every batshit conspiracy theory out there, from QAnon to Seth Rich to Hillary’s emails to JFK’s assassination. Judicial Watch was founded by nutbag lawyer Larry Klayman.
Trump to tap conservative activist Tom Fitton to serve on judicial oversight body
Fitton heads the group Judicial Watch, and has advocated for investigations into officials from the Obama administration. The activist was vocal about his opposition to former special counsel Robert Mueller‘s probe into Trump’s relationship with Russia and the country’s interference in the 2016 presidential election.
The commission is made up of two non-legal members, four attorneys and a judge. One of the members is appointed by the president to a five-year term.
The body is granted the power to remove judges from their posts for misconduct or mental or physical incapacitation.
The announcement came the same day Trump was taken to Walter Reed National Military Medical Center after he tested positive for COVID-19.
