President Donald Trump probably appointed more federal judges than any other presidents in modern time. He believes that the judges he appointed owe him favors. That is part of the reasons why he was so convinced early on that he can use his appointed judges to overturn the will of the American people. Boy was he wrong! Case after case had been dismissed and many of them by conservative judges appointed by Trump.
U.S. District Court Judge Steven Grimberg appointed by Trump turned down a bid to block the certification of President-elect Joe Biden as the winner in Georgia. At the conclusion of a three-hour virtual hearing, Judge Grimberg delivered a withering assessment of the suit that a prominent attorney, Lin Wood, filed to try to stop officials from finalizing a tally that has Trump trailing Biden by more than 12,000 votes.
“Grimberg said it was clear that, as an individual voter, Wood lacked legal standing to mount the challenge to Georgia’s election procedures. But the judge — a former prosecutor whom Trump nominated last year also emphasized that evidence of improprieties seemed limited to isolated cases and far short of what would be needed to justify a federal judge stepping in to alter the state’s election results.
