Trump is nominating Thomas Cullen to a federal judgeship. Cullen suspended the civil liberties of political dissidents (RAM and others), including putting Jack Corbin in pre-trial solitary confinement for the offense of "cyberstalking" a member of Antifa. https://t.co/63dqz1uTUO— DSA Striker Is Amazing (@AarickStriger) December 19, 2019
Donald Trump should be impeached within the hour.
It is hard to think of a bigger f*** you to those of us who supported him in 2016 than nominating Thomas Cullen to a U.S. District Court.
“RICHMOND, Va. — President Donald Trump has nominated U.S. Attorney Thomas Cullen for a federal judgeship to fill a vacancy in U.S. District Court in Roanoke.
Cullen, 42, has been the U.S. Attorney for the Western District of Virginia since 2018. He’s had several high-profile cases during his tenure, including criminal prosecutions related to the Unite the Right white nationalist rally in Charlottesville in August 2017.
The White House made the announcement on Wednesday. …”
In Trump’s defense, he likely doesn’t know anything about Cullen or why this is a problem. There is no one in the White House who could even tell him it is a problem. This has been the story of the Trump administration. In spite of running as a nationalist and a populist, he has more or less turned the government over to conservatives and his victory in 2016 didn’t change anything aside from furthering the careers of these people.
