Senate GOP approves Judge nominee opposed by 20,000 police


This is why we are getting rid of the GOP and why we have so much contempt for those who rattle around in the halls of Congress. They care not one wit. This anti-cop judge who is knee deep in the Freddie Gray case in Baltimore will have a lifetime appointment. This is the contempt message we send to our police officers. Each Senator’s vote can be found at the bottom of the post’s link. Just for the record, here is Freddie Grays fine curriculum vitae  Here  of his life of crime. Just the highlights no doubt.

The Senate confirmed Paula Xinis for a federal judgeship in Maryland by a vote of 53-34, over the protests of major state police unions and outside conservative groups.

The president of Maryland’s Fraternal Order of Police, Ismael Canales, wrote to Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Ala., urging him and fellow senators to oppose the nomination on behalf of “over 20,000 active and retired law enforcement professionals.”

“Based on prior and recent experiences,” Canales wrote, “Ms. Xinis has shown a clear bias [against] law enforcement which began in her position as a complaint examiner … and culminated with her involvement in the civil suit surrounding the Freddie Gray case in Baltimore.”

In her capacity as a complaint examiner for the District of Columbia’s Office of Police Complaints, Xinis ruled against the accused officer in all six cases that came before her.

That record was interpreted as “obvious disdain for the law enforcement profession” in a letter written to each member of the Senate by Baltimore’s local Fraternal Order of Police.

Xinis, a partner and senior trial attorney at the Baltimore law firm representing the family of Freddie Gray, will serve in what is in effect a lifetime position on the U.S. District Court of Maryland. Gray died in police custody and trials are ongoing for the six officers involved in his arrest.

Monday’s vote to confirm President Barack Obama’s nomination of Xinis, 47, was by a relatively tight margin. If three more senators had voted against her, the nomination would have failed.

The 10 GOP senators who did not vote were: Tom Cotton, Ark.; Ted Cruz, Texas; Michael Enzi, Wyo.; Jeff Flake, Ariz.; Ron Johnson, Wis.; Jerry Moran, Kan.; Pat Roberts, Kan.; Dan Sullivan, Alaska; Pat Toomey, Pa.; and David Vitter, La.

    This is a perfect example of why Trump has won the GOP nomination, when will they ever learn?!

      Not possible. They are hell bent to be and do what they want. Cantor should have been a lesson to them. I guess we will have to trot out Trump.

      Those that voted yes should be hung. Primaried right out of office. See that Schlutz is.

    I’ve finally stopped asking myself what the heck is wrong with these people who were elected to carry out the wishes of their constituents. I sleep better at night now and I have less headaches….😉

    Is it a fair assumption that this judge must be a negress? Why else would these cowards on the right ensure her appointment? It is curious that the former conservative law and order police loving presidential candidate Teddy Cruz abstained along with several other conservative heavyweights. Goodnight.

      A good touch of it, it appears regarding your first question. I noticed the same thing. Cruz missing in action. Hatch voted yes, Collins yes in a quick glance for the Rinos. Toomey of PA already got a letter from me.

      I don’t think she’s black (at least by looking at her picture.) However, I would bet you dollars to doughnuts that she’s a lesbian.

        I think you are right about the color. I can find no mention. At least she would be good to play scrabble with. X, always hard to us that X.
