Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Tuesday, November 14, 2017

One of President Trump's most controversial judicial nominees did not disclose on publicly available congressional documents that he is married to a senior lawyer in the White House Counsel's Office. The nominee, Brett J. Talley, is awaiting a Senate confirmation vote that could come as early as Monday to become a federal district judge in Alabama. He is married to Ann Donaldson, the chief of staff to the White House counsel, Donald F. McGahn II. Mr. Talley was asked on his publicly released Senate questionnaire to identify family members and others who are "likely to present potential conflicts of interest." He did not mention his wife ... Mr. Talley also did not mention his wife when he described his frequent contact with White House lawyers during the nomination process.

Just another one of those oh so convenient "oversights" that so many Trump Admin peeps enjoyed while under reporting on required disclosures.

It almost looks like the 'oversights' were calculated, doesn't it.

There is no question he hid it. There's no way to miss this conflict of interest.

The nominee simply didn't understand the form since it wasn't in his native Russian.

Think of it as a gumbo, based mostly on the inane comments I've been reading on Twitter.

Should apply to Jeff Sessions to boot, but we all know that it won't.

I doubt any Dem will vote for this amateur when his vote comes up, and the revelations about this guy could easily sway a few self-respecting Repubs to vote against him. I'll wager that a couple GOP Senators will put out word that they will oppose this clown and his nomination will be withdrawn, so as to save face. Stay tuned...

The collective alzheimers in Dotards administration is a reason for concern.

So far selective amnesia has hit:

Dotard
Dotard Jr.
Dotard in law.
Sheets Sessions.
Goodhair Perry.
Flynn
Manafort
Kelly
Checkbook DeVoss
Munchkin

It's almost like they are trying to hide things.

Still waiting for a good defense for Mr. Talley's amnesia.
Anyone? Anyone? Mueller?
