    The nominee, Brett J. Talley, is awaiting a Senate confirmation vote that could come as early as Monday to become a federal district judge in Alabama. He is married to Ann Donaldson, the chief of staff to the White House counsel, Donald F. McGahn II.

    Mr. Talley was asked on his publicly released Senate questionnaire to identify family members and others who are “likely to present potential conflicts of interest.” He did not mention his wife...

    I'm just trying to understand the thought process this guy had, I mean, did he really think not listing his spouse on the questionnaire that it would magically erase his wife working in the WH?

    Having a spouse that works in the WH as a chief of staff to WH counsel doesn't appear to be a potential conflict of interest? Especially one that already was a witness for Muller's investigation?

    Trump's sister is a judge on the 3rd Circuit court of Appeals still so far as I know. Doesn't necessarily create a conflict of interest.

    Seems like a silly thing to omit when you know it is going to come out one way or another.

    Is she also a member of the Trump administration?
