Give Merrick Garland his confirmation hearing, and let me testify against him

Today I filed a judicial misconduct complaint against President Obama’s Supreme Court nominee, Chief Judge Merrick Garland of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit. It’s been a long time coming.

You can read the details in the complaint or at, so I won’t rehash them all here, but in early 2015 I filed a judicial misconduct complaint against U.S. District Judge Ellen S.

That complaint was automatically directed to the chief judge, i.e., Judge Garland, and it was supported with transcripts, medical records, emails, FedEx records, and billing records proving the fraud.

My complaint was held in limbo for more than a year – without any investigation – until Judge Henderson dismissed it on February 18, 2016. I appealed the dismissal on March 25, 2016.

Just ask U.S. District Judge Walter S. Smith, Jr., U.S. District Judge Frank Montalvo, or Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton, all of whom are Republicans. … Read more
