A 36-year-old lawyer whom President Donald Trump nominated for a lifetime federal district judgeship and was deemed "not qualified" by the American Bar Association failed to disclose that he is married to a top White House lawyer when asked to disclose conflicts of interest. Brett Talley, nominated by Trump to an Alabama vacancy, failed to disclose his marriage to Ann Donaldson, a senior lawyer in the White House Counsel's office, on public congressional documents. Donaldson is chief of staff to White House counsel Donald McGahn. Asked to list any family members who were "likely to present potential conflicts of interest," Talley didn't mention his wife. Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein of California, the ranking member of the Judiciary Committee, said Talley's failure to disclose the marriage was a betrayal to the American people.
