Until the 2020 Election
UNFIT TRUMP’S JUDICIAL NOMINEES SHOULD NOT BE APPROVED
Trump is unworried about impeachment because he expects vindication by “his judges” being rushed through the Senate. An unfit president shouldn’t have his judicial nominees confirmed. Our MoCs must stop him.
Problematic nominees awaiting Committee vote:
—Steven Menashi (2d Cir.): vile racist, sexist, homophobic record; helped Devos eliminate students’ rights/protections and Stephen Miller craft family-separation; refused to discuss White House work, Ukraine call
–Barbara Lagoa and Robert Luck (11th Cir.): Federalist Society “screened” them for 2019 appointments to Florida Supreme Court; sided with wealthy and powerful over everyday Americans
–Danielle Hunsaker (9th Cir.): Federalist Society; only 23 unpublished decisions in 2 years as Oregon trial judge
—Halil Ozerden (5th Cir.): strong pro-corporate bias; anti-consumer, –workers, –civil rights; protected police/prosecutors against serious misconduct claims; extremely harsh criminal sentences; ruled against women sexually assaulted in ICE custody
–Sarah Pitlyk: unqualified ABA rating; relentlessly eroding reproductive healthcare rights; anti-ACA –equal opportunity programs
Problematic district court nominees pending Senate vote:
—Matthew McFarland (S.D.Ohio): anti-abortion activist; wrote/defended legislation restricting abortion access
–Lee Rudofsky (E.D.Ark.): stripped Planned Parenthood’s Medicaid funding; sought to overturn Roe
–Justin Walker (W.D.Ky.): unqualified ABA rating; no trial experience; opposed FBI independence; anti-ACA, -worker, -environment
Trump is Not Fit to Nominate Judges!
No More Extremist Appointments to
**ACTION ONE: CALL OUR SENATORS**
SAMPLE SCRIPT FOR SENATORS MERKLEY AND WYDEN:
“My name is [–] and I’m a constituent from [town/city], Oregon [zip code]. I am calling because . . .
. . . Donald Trump continues to commit impeachable crimes, expecting “protection” from the consequences of his illegal acts by “his judges” being rushed through Senate by McConnell and his flunkies. Please thank the Senator for his support for impeachment, and tell him to do everything in his power to prevent the confirmation of Steven Menashi, Barbara Lagoa, Robert Luck, Danielle Hunsaker, Halil Ozerden, Sarah Pitlyk, Justin Walker, Matthew McFarland, and Lee Rudofsky. Their extremist beliefs will keep them from being fair and impartial and have no place in our federal judiciary.

**ACTION TWO: CALL COMPLICIT GREG WALDEN**
SAMPLE SCRIPT FOR WALDEN:
. . . Donald Trump continues to commit impeachable crimes. Tell Greg Walden that I demand he put country over party and join colleagues who are standing up for the rule of law in our country by supporting impeachment proceedings.
Through Greg’s actions and inactions — the silence is deafening— he continues to signal that he fully supports Trump, regardless of how much damage Trump is doing to our democracy and to world stability. Know that we are still here, we will hold him accountable, we are working to flip his seat BLUE — #2020IsNow!
