A Democratic senator mocked one of President Trump's judicial nominees on Thursday, posting video of the nominee struggling to provide answers to a GOP senator's line of questioning. Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-R.I.) posted video of Matthew Spencer Petersen, a commissioner on the Federal Election Commission, facing questions during a hearing Wednesday on his nomination to become a district judge on the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia. Whitehouse touted the video as a "MUST WATCH," noting that the nominee was unable to answer "basic questions of law" after being asked by Sen. John Kennedy (R-La.) about legal procedure. After asking Petersen and four other nominees in the video whether they had ever "tried a case to verdict," Kennedy narrowed his questioning to Petersen, who admitted he had not. "Do you know what a motion in limine is?" Kennedy asked. "I would probably not be able to give you a good definition," Petersen responded. "Do you know what the Younger abstention doctrine is?" Kennedy continued. "I've heard of it, but again," Petersen responded, trailing off. "How about the Pullman abstention doctrine?" Kennedy added. Again, Petersen was unable to respond, shaking his head. Petersen defended his inability to answer the questions in a brief statement, telling Kennedy that he is aware that his path to the nomination for a district judge was unorthodox. "I haven't had to do a deep dive ... and I understand, and I appreciate this line of questioning, I understand the challenge that would be ahead of me if I were fortunate enough to be named a district court judge," he said. "I understand that the path many successful district court judges has been a different one than I have taken," Petersen continued, adding that he believed that he was still qualified. The White House announced this week it would withdraw two controversial judicial nominees opposed by Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), who chairs the Senate Judiciary Committee. Those nominees were under fire for controversial statements made in the past, and one had also practiced law for less than three years.

Corey Booker Testifies Against Jeff Sessions at Confirmation Hearing 1/11/17. Senator Cory Booker today got a lot of attention for testifying against Senate colleague and Trump AG nominee Jeff Sessions in what he called a matter of conscience but what more cynical observers felt was his kickoff to a 2020 presidential run. Booker acknowledged at the outset today just how extraordinary his testimony is (more on that here), but said, “In the choice between standing with Senate norms or standing up for what my conscience tells me is best for our country, I will always choose conscience and country.” Leading up to his testimony today, there were reports highlighting Booker’s praise of Sessions last year when the two senators came together to award the congressional gold medal to Selma marchers. He said at the time he felt “blessed and honored” working with Sessions on it. Booker acknowledged this in his remarks today, but he maintained that he believes his colleague has shown “hostility” towards certain aspects of criminal justice that he believes are important for the U.S. attorney general to hold. He said Sessions would not be a leader in tackling racial bias in police departments across the country at a time when America needs more “hope and healing.” One of the biggest reactions to Booker’s speech circulating on Twitter was that he was using it to raise his national profile for a presidential run:
