The judge in the Pennsylvania case, Matthew Brann, is a Republican who,before his nomination, was involved in Republican politics,the NRA and the Federalist Society. He said the Trump case was "without merit and speculative accusations" "unhinged" and a "Frankenstein's monster". https://t.co/qakfwm0Cwg
Conservative twitter is erupting w these Obama-judge takes, but it's all delusional. Judge Brann was a Federalist Society member who served on the Pa. GOP State Comm, on his county Republican committee for 18 years. He reportedly was picked by Toomey.
Brann is a Republican. Though technically nominated by Obama, he was selected by Sen. Toomey because of his conservative bona fides: leader in the county GOP, member of the Federalist Society. https://t.co/M9X8ZdokC7
Even a judge from the Federalist Society threw out Trump fake and unsubstantiated claims, called them meritless and as badly stitched together as Frankenstein, literally write that in his opiniin. https://t.co/6Pko5pXR6n
Imagine being a federalist society judge who went to school to learn about private property and rule of law and respecting billionaires even when they do pedophile rings and having to watch these coked out barely literate Q anon lawyers beg you to let Trump have a second term
- The Judge is a Lifelong Republican.
- The Judge was a Delegate at Republican National Conference in 2008.
- The judge is part of the Federalist Society (Right-wing).
- The Judge was one prominent Republican Senator's (Sen. Pat Toomey) choice when being appointed.
BREAKING: PA judge Matthew Brann dismissed Trump's latest lawsuit with a brutal rebuke.
Rudy Giuliani (and right-wing pundits) say its because he's progressive. Judge Brann was in the Federalist Society, served on the PA GOP, and on his county Republican committee for 18 years.
Judge Matthew W. Brann, a federal judge in Pennsylvania, issued his ruling yesterday in the case of Donald J. Trump for President v. Boockvar, argued by Rudy Giuliani. Before his appointment by President Obama, Judge Brann was a Federalist Society NRA member Republican. https://t.co/j1AS8mKKMa
corollary: it took me 2 quick google searches and maybe 3 links to find and confirm that Judge Brann was a Federalist Society, NRA, "Specter rule," Toomey-nominated Obama appointee paired with a Casey-nominated judge, and both were unanimously confirmed by the Senate in 2012 https://t.co/RzRFpbEijN
Salient point: "It is true that Brann was appointed by former President Barack Obama, but he is a Republican and Federalist Society member who was sponsored by the state’s Republican senator Pat Toomey." https://t.co/ih0TUijyJs
@realDonaldTrump Regardless of what your handlers are saying to calm a petulant child, “your judges” are tossing out one case at a time.
Did they tell you what Judge Brann said yesterday? You know the Federalist Society picked, Trump appointed Judge Brann.... https://t.co/VJxvzrwJwE
@CarmineSabia Hmm, I noticed you failed to mention that Judge Brann is also a conservative REPUBLICAN and member of the FEDERALIST SOCIETY...just a slight oversight on your part like tRump's legal team failing to present proof of evidence and habitually getting laughed (cursed?) out of Court?
@traceydeemc@PittsburghPG Appointed by obama as part of a bipartisan deal where Sen Casey and Sen Toomey were each given the opportunity to recommend one. This judge was the conservative federalist society judge picked by Toomey and GOP
@StanTradingMan@AliVelshi A federalist society republican judge appointed by obama * there I fixed it for you.
Plus if your argument is judges are beholden to the party or person who put them in place than the supreme court is moot right?
