On June 17, 2010, Barack Obama nominated attorney Amy Berman Jackson to fill the vacated seat Judge Gladys Kessler who was moved up to be the Senior Judge of the US District Court for the District of Columbia.
Jackson had never been a judge before being tapped by Obama to fill the federal judgeship position.
She was confirmed and began serving on March 18, 2011.
Jackson has been involved in several cases in which she has ruled against President Trump, even when he had legal authority for his actions.
On Wednesday, Jackson slapped Paul Manafort with an additional 43 months in prison for two additional conspiracy charges.
Washington Examiner – Paul Manafort gets 43 more months in prison from DC judge – Judge Amy Berman Jackson on Wednesday sentenced Paul Manafort to 43 more months in prison on two conspiracy charges.
The sentence follows the nearly four-year sentence he received last week from a Virginia judge for concealing millions of dollars of overseas income. The conspiracy charges were heard in Washington, D.C., and deal with charges of committing crimes against the U.S. and obstructing justice, to which he pleaded guilty last year.
The new sentence means Manafort still needs to serve nearly 7 years in prison. Here’s how his sentencing breaks down:
- Jackson sentenced Manafort to 60 months total for the first count of conspiracy to defraud the U.S., but gave him credit for half of that time as time served, leaving an effective new sentence of 30 months…
In Obama’s 8 years of illegally serving as America’s leader, he placed over 300 judges on federal benches.
A number of those judges have been using their positions to push their liberal anti-Constitution and anti-American agenda instead of ruling based upon the Constitution and rule of law, and Jackson is one of those.
Our Founding Fathers intended the judicial branch of our government to be the weakest and non-political, but they have made themselves the most powerful and political branch of the government.
