Fox Business Network is reporting that Judge Andrew Napolitano has met with Donald Trump to discuss the Supreme Court vacancy left by Scalia.
President-elect Donald Trump has been busy since Election Day carefully choosing members who will fill his cabinet. But in the midst of the rush to staff his administration, Trump took time for advice from Fox News Senior Judicial Analyst, Judge Andrew Napolitano. The judge outlined desirable qualities for a potential nominee who could fill an empty Supreme Court seat vacated by Justice Antonin Scalia who died in February.
The judge advised the president-elect on how to scope out the best candidates based on intellectual, ideological, and temperamental qualities.
“He was interested in a broad range of ideas and attitudes about the type of person who would best fill Justice Scalia’s seat,” Napolitano told the FOX Business Network’s Stuart Varney.
Even though the story says that the President Elect was seeking advice from the Judge, it is a good sign that he meet with him in the first place.
The appointment of Judge Napolitano would be huge for the Liberty movement in the United States. He is a bonafide Libertarian that would bring sensible rulings to the bench.
