Federal Judge Nominations, December 15, 2017

It is NOT NORMAL that the president continues to choose wildly unqualified nominees for federal judgeships (which are, I remind you, lifetime appointments). One of the president’s nominees was unable to explain a motion in limine or the Daubert standard, both of which are fairly basic legal concepts that a federal judge would need to understand. (For context, I have taken exactly one law class in my entire life and I could have done a better job of explaining a motion in limine than the nominee did.)
