Mitt Romney Votes Against Trump’s Judicial Nominee Because He Criticized Obama

The freshman Senator is picking up where Jeff Flake left off as the ‘Never Trump’ obstructionist within the GOP.

Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) voted against confirming a conservative justice to the federal bench earlier today because the man had sharply criticized former President Barack Hussein Obama in 2011.

Michael J. Truncale was ultimately confirmed as the United States District Judge for the Eastern District of Texas by a 49-46 margin, but no thanks to Romney who was the lone GOP defector joining with the Democrats to vote against Trump’s judicial pick.

Truncale had called Obama an “un-American imposter” in 2011, something considered verboten to a man of Romney’s establishment prestige.

“I made many of the comments referred to herein in my capacities as a candidate for the United States Congress or as a political commentator. As a judicial nominee, it would be inappropriate for me to offer comments on any political matters.” Truncale said in a response to written questioning from Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA).

Truncale has also served as a whistle-blower against voter fraud. He testified before the Senate last year that he rejected fraudulent ballots while serving as an election judge in Texas.

“I was once an election judge and had people from other states come by wanting to vote and I denied their ballot because they weren’t even Texans, or properly registered, so I’ve seen that,” Mr. Truncale said.

Romney did not seem to care about Truncale’s consistent record of constitutional fidelity, but was instead more concerned with grandstanding against the President. In his typically self-serving manner, Romney rushed to the fake news shortly after making his vote to virtue signal to the opposition media.

“He made particularly disparaging comments about President Obama. And as the Republican nominee for president, I just couldn’t subscribe to that in a federal judge,” Romney said to Politico. “This was not a matter of qualifications or politics; this was something specifically to that issue as a former nominee of our party.”

Perhaps if Romney had shown as much gumption as Truncale did when running against Obama in 2012, he wouldn’t have lost in such embarrassing fashion and doomed the U.S. to four more years of socialism and racial division.

Romney has opposed Trump recently on issues like the emergency measures declaration at the U.S. southern border and the nomination of Herman Cain to the Federal Reserve board. He will likely continue to undermine Trump’s ‘America First’ agenda in his Senatorial role for as long as he is able.

Democrat Congressmen Introduce Term Limits Legislation for SCOTUS Justices As Trump Prepares Nominee

Interesting timing.

Published

Three Democrat members of Congress are introducing legislation to institute term limits for Supreme Court justices, as President Trump prepares to nominate his third candidate for the court following the death of progressive liberal Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

Democrats Joe Kennedy, Ro Khanna, and Don Beyer are proposing legislation that would limit SCOTUS justice to a maximum term of eighteen years on the court.

Khanna has proposed an idea that would allow Presidents to appoint two judges in each term. “Senior” members of the court would be required to basically retired for every new member of the court.

It’s pretty funny the Democrats are uniting behind these proposals the moment they appear primed to lose control of the Supreme Court for a generation. They weren’t complaining when Obama was trying to replace Antonin Scalia with progressive Merrick Garland, even going so far as claiming that the stealth liberal was entitled to the seat. Reports emerging Friday suggest that President Donald Trump intends to nominate Amy Coney Barrett, a mostly conservative judge with a pro-life and immigration hawk judicial record.

The judicial branch of government is arguably the most flawed element of American governance, and it’s highly questionable how institutions such as the Supreme Court are able to appoint themselves a nearly unlimited amount of political power.

A better reform proposals would be to institute term limits for justices that only go into effect after the current members of the court vacate their seats. Anything else is simply a political power grab.
