Fact Check: Were Any Clinton or Obama Judicial Nominees Deemed ‘Not Qualified’ by the ABA?

Four recent judicial nominees from President Donald Trump have received “not qualified” ratings from the American Bar Association, most notably Brett Talley, a 36-year-old lawyer who has never tried a case. In response a post on MSNBC’s website claimed that neither Barack Obama nor Bill Clinton submitted judicial nominees who had received a “not qualified” rating from the American Bar Association.
“In the Obama era, for example, literally none of the Democratic president’s nominees received a ‘not qualified’ rating. The same is true of Bill Clinton’s nominees,” Steve Benen, a producer for the Rachel Maddow Show, wrote on The Maddow Blog.
