Mississippi Judge Nominated to 5th U.S. Circuit Court Of Appeals

WASHINGTON, DC (Ben Caxton) — Cory Wilson was a member of the state House when he was appointed to the 10-member state court in February 2019 by Governor Phil Bryant. In August President Donald Trump announced he was nominating Wilson to become a federal district judge in southern Mississippi but the Senate Judiciary Committee has not yet acted on the nomination. As the White House switches Wilson’s nomination to a different court, Kristi Haskins Johnson is being nominated for the district judgeship in southern Mississippi. She is a former assistant U.S. attorney and earlier this year, she was named solicitor general for the state of Mississippi. If confirmed, she would be the first woman to serve as a federal judge in the district that encompasses the southern half of the state.

  1. One glaringly obvious reason the party of donkeys is so hopping mad, acting like monkeys flinging their own feces at President Trump: he’s really, really packing the federal courts, including SCOTUS, with conservative-minded judges. And they can’t do a damn thing about it.
