Americans everywhere are focused on the presidential race between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton right now. That’s why Barack Obama sees this as the perfect opportunity to quietly do something that the majority of Americans would never want him to do.
This man really does have no shame…
President Barack Obama made history this week when he nominated the first Muslim-American to serve as a federal judge on the U.S. District court for the District of Columbia.
Qureshi was previously working for the law firm Latham & Watkins, where he focused on health care fraud and securities violations. He graduated from Harvard Law School in the late 90s.
“I am pleased to nominate Mr. Qureshi to serve on the United States District Court bench,” Obama said in a statement about the nomination. “I am confident he will serve the American people with integrity and a steadfast commitment to justice.”
If the nomination is confirmed, Qureshi will officially be the first Muslim-America to serve as a federal judge in the nation’s capital. He’ll have to pass through the U.S. Senate first, which has decided not to make any decisions on judicial nominations until after Obama’s term ends in January.
