Trump’s success in remaking the federal judiciary and how that could be his lasting legacy

Hosted by

Brett Talley is a 36-year-old Harvard graduate. He’s a lawyer, but he’s never tried a case before. Talley works as a deputy assistant attorney general at the Justice Department, and he’s blogged about being a fan of the National Rifle Association. The Trump Administration has nominated him to be a federal trial judge in Alabama. He’s the fourth Trump pick the American Bar Association has rated “not qualified” to sit on the bench.
