President Trump’s recent decision to nominate Judge Don Willett to the federal appeals court is being praised by Constitutional Conservatives. Willet is another great choice with an excellent record.
The Washington Examiner reports:
On judicial nominees, Trump just keeps on #winning
President Trump hit another judicial home run with his 5th Circuit nominees today. Don Willett and Jim Ho are tremendously experienced and qualified lawyers and public servants whose intellect and legal skills are matched only by their integrity and commitment to the rule of law. I have known them both for a long time and can attest that they will be tremendous assets to the federal judiciary.
Justice Willett’s nomination in particular will make national headlines because of his presence on social media. A decade from now it probably (hopefully!) won’t be unusual to find federal judges tweeting about life, the universe, and everything — but in 2017, Willett is a trailblazer.
Not that he’s snarky or glib or anything that Twitter is known for. Instead, he’s become the judicial Twitter laureate because of the education he gives his fellow citizens on the Constitution and the proper role of a judge (and bacon) all in his own inimitable “judge next door” style. It’s to the enduring credit of the White House counsel’s office and Justice Department that someone who’s not plain-vanilla made it through the vetting process.
Wait until Trump picks another Supreme Court Justice. It’ll be yuge!
