Trump Taps Conservative Watchdog Tom Fitton For Court Oversight Agency | Zero Hedge

President Trump plans to appoint conservative legal watchdog Tom Fitton of Judicial Watch to serve on a D.C. court oversight body which has the power to remove judges within the district, according to Politico.

Fitton’s upcoming appointment to the D.C. Commission on Judicial Disabilities and Tenure was announced by the White House in a Friday afternoon letter. The commission includes four attorneys, one federal judge and two laypeople who can vote to remove judges for misconduct, or force judges into retirement if they become mentally or physically incapacitated.

The president can appoint one of the members to a five-year term.
