This is bad.

The White House announced Friday that President Trump intends to appoint prominent conservative activist Tom Fitton to a judicial oversight agency that would grant him the power to unseat judges in the Washington, D.C., judiciary.
Trump will tap Fitton to join the D.C. Commission on Judicial Disabilities and Tenure.
Fitton heads the group Judicial Watch, and has advocated for investigations into officials from the Obama administration. The activist was vocal about his opposition to former special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe into Trump’s relationship with Russia and the country’s interference in the 2016 presidential election.
He has also warned of a “deep state” that is supposedly seeking to undermine Trump.
He has also called for the elimination of certain coronavirus safety measures such as mask-wearing.
The commission is made up of two non-legal members, four attorneys and a judge. One of the members is appointed by the president to a five-year term.
The body is granted the power to remove judges from their posts for misconduct or mental or physical incapacitation.
Okay first off this Fitton guy is a Right Wing troll and conspiracy theorist who frequently makes guest appearances on Fox News.
I am still constantly receiving emails from his Judicial Watch hate group telling me that they have once again uncovered evidence concerning Hillary’s illegal use of a private server or her complicity in starting the Russian probe against Trump.
The only reason that Trump would assign this guy to this agency is that he hopes that he will target judges appointed by Obama that he can then replace with his own judges.
And, of course, that is exactly what he will do.
