In a bizarre decision, Joe Biden has chosen to nominate a district judge who is currently overseeing accused child sex trafficker Ghislaine Maxwell’s case.
Biden nominated Judge Alison Nathan who currently serves as a judge on the U.S. District Court for Southern New York. She has officially been nominated by Biden to the U.S. Court of Appeals.
Biden made the nomination after being pushed by Democrat Senator Chuck Schumer to do so. Biden’s choice has many people scratching their heads.
Judge Nathan is currently overseeing the woman who allegedly helped Jeffery Epstein sexually abuse underage girls. Many believe Biden made the move to butter up the judge to take it easy on Maxwell during her trial.
While all eyes are on the Rittenhouse trial, Biden just nominated the judge presiding over Ghislaine Maxwell trial to the Second Circuit.
Her trial begins November 29.

If approved, Judge Nathan will be the second ever openly lesbian judge to serve on the U.S. Court of Appeals.
The Press is Ignoring Maxwell’s Trial
This past week, almost every media outlet covered Kyle Rittenhouse’s trial non-stop. Well, while the Rittenhouse trial was ending, Ghislaine Maxwell’s trial was just beginning.
Ghislaine’s pre-trial procedures began last week and jurors are set to be selected and approved by the end of November.

One of the jurors who was originally undergoing the process of being a member of the Maxwell trial was dismissed; that happened after he admitted to meeting Epstein during a few occasions on business terms.
Many users on Twitter believe the Rittenhouse trial is being reported on so much to direct the attention away from certain facts.
The facts are that Ghislaine Maxwell (the woman who allegedly “prepared” young women for Epstein and other high profile political leaders and celebrities) might just spill the beans on everybody.
It’s been reported that Ghislaine Maxwell, Jeffery Epstein and Bill Clinton hung out numerous times. That’s not all.
Prince Andrew allegedly sexually abused a minor under Maxwell and Epstein’s knowledge. Many celebrities in Hollywood have not said a word about Ghislaine’s trial in hopes their names won’t be called out in any point of the trial.
No Cameras Allowed!
At the Rittenhouse trial, there were cameras everywhere; almost every major network (Fox News, MSNBC, ABC, CNN) was present during the trial.
Ghislaine Maxwell’s case will not allow any cameras into the courtroom because she’s undergoing federal charges.
The Federal Rule of Criminal Procedure 53, which was created in 1946, bans cameras in a federal court room. In 1972, all live broadcasting was also banned from inside of federal courtrooms.
That’s why, in a federal court, most news outlets and papers will just use sketches to depict a person on trial.
Many people would rather have more transparency in a federal court case, but others believe the no camera rule helps jurors not be persuaded from any outside news in the age of social media.
