WASHINGTON – On Tuesday, U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) issued the following statement on Wisconsin attorney Sopen Shah’s nomination for appointment to be U.S. Attorney for the United States District Court in the Western District of Wisconsin.
“With each passing day, it is becoming more obvious that we no longer have equal justice being administered in America. Instead, we have a two-tiered justice system – one that protects Democrats and their elite backers, and one for the rest of America. The reason we have a two-tiered system is because our justice system is increasingly populated with political partisans who are incapable of administering justice equally. Through tweets that she has now deleted, Ms. Sopen Shah demonstrated she would be yet another political partisan within our justice system. As a result, I will not support her nomination.”
