NAACP President and CEO Derrick Johnson accuses Trump Administration of nomination judges with records of "undermining voting rights."

The NAACP has released a Report connecting the Trump administration’s judicial nominations to its widespread attacks on voting rights, President Trump’s Judicial Playbook: Weaponizing the Bench to Suppress The Vote.

“In 2 ½ years, President Donald Trump has appointed an alarming number of nominees with appalling records of enabling or defending voter suppression,” said Derrick Johnson, NAACP President and CEO.” This is no accident, and the pattern is devastating. Undermining voting rights is now a qualification for nomination to the federal bench. This administration is weaponizing the federal judiciary to restrict the vote.

"Our courts are essential to ensuring full political participation for everyone under the Constitution and civil rights laws. The American people deserve judges who are impartial, fair, and committed to equal justice under law. It is time to stand up to this extraordinary perversion of the judicial appointment process to undermine our democracy. Our rights to fully participate in the political process lie in the balance.”

The Report and President Trump’s takeover of the federal courts will be among the critical topics discussed at NAACP’s 110th Convention in Detroit from July 20th to 24th.
