When faced with basic legal questions, a Trump judicial nominee fumbles

Hosted by  • 

Matthew Spencer Petersen is up for a seat on US District Court for the District of Columbia, but at a hearing Wednesday he failed a legal quiz when he couldn't answer straightforward questions put to him by Republican Sen. John Kennedy of Louisiana. He's also never tried a case and couldn't recall how many depositions he'd taken.
