Re: Judge who resigned is Clinton's most liberal pick

 

Novak must be slipping due to age. His little vignette against Clinton’s liberal judge on the FISA court lacks one critical detail. Clinton appointed him to the Federal bench. Chief Justice Rehnquist appointed Roberts to the FISA court.

 

Hey Bob, it’s nice to be partisan, but it’s better to be correct.

 

 

According to the law:

FISA established a special court--the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC)-- composed of seven federal district court judges appointed by the Chief Justice for staggered terms and from different circuits. Individual judges of the FISC review the Attorney General's applications for authorization of electronic surveillance aimed at obtaining foreign intelligence information. The FISC meets two days monthly.
