This is WONDERFUL news!
I've been a huge fan of Tom Fitton for a long time.
He is doing incredible work through Judicial Watch, but he has very limited power in that role.
I've been saying for a long time that President Trump should give him a real appointment in his Administration and it looks like that is finally happening!
Check this out:
Our friends at The Hill had more details:
The White House announced Friday that President Trump intends to appoint prominent conservative activist Tom Fitton to a judicial oversight agency that would grant him the power to unseat judges in the Washington, D.C., judiciary.
Trump will tap Fitton to join the D.C. Commission on Judicial Disabilities and Tenure.
Fitton heads the group Judicial Watch, and has advocated for investigations into officials from the Obama administration. The activist was vocal about his opposition to former special counsel Robert Mueller's probe into Trump's relationship with Russia and the country's interference in the 2016 presidential election.
He has also warned of a “deep state” that is supposedly seeking to undermine Trump.
He has also called for the elimination of certain coronavirus safety measures such as mask-wearing.
