BUSTED: Trump Judicial Nominee Did Not Disclose He’s Married To Trump’s Lawyer
One of President Trump’s most controversial judicial nominees did not disclose that he is married to a senior to a senior White House lawyer, the New York Times reported Monday.
Brett Talley, who Trump nominated to the position in September, is married to Ann Donaldson, the chief of staff to the White House counsel.
Talley is awaiting a Senate confirmation vote that could come as early as Monday to become a federal district judge in Alabama, The Times reports.
Mr. Talley, who is awaiting a Senate confirmation vote that could come as early as Monday to become a federal district judge in Alabama, 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.
Talley is the fourth of Trump’s judicial nominees to be deemed unqualified by the American Bar Association.
His wife was interviewed by investigators looking into whether the Trump campaign colluded with Russia and on conversations she had with her boss, White House counsel Donald McGahn, about the firing of James Comey as FBI director.
