Far-Left Judge Claims Cuccinelli is Ineligible for His DHS Post

A federal judge in Washington D.C. ruled on Sunday, without evidence, that Ken Cuccinelli was unlawfully appointed by President Trump to serve in a leadership role in the Department of Homeland Security, as CNN reports.

The ruling came from Judge Randolph Moss of the U.S. District Court in Washington D.C., who falsely claimed that Cuccinelli’s appointment as the Deputy Secretary of DHS “did not satisfy the legal requirements…under the Federal Vacancies Reform Act.”

Judge Moss claimed that Cuccinelli’s position is merely a “label without any substance,” and cited an episode of the sitcom series “The Office” as proof to support his ruling, claiming that Cuccinelli’s position is comparable to a fictional position on the show called “assistant to the regional manager.” This, Moss claimed, was proof that “the acting Secretary [of DHS] created a position that is second in command in name only.”

Moss further claimed that, as a result of his ruling, all of the immigration policies implemented by Cuccinelli must now be overturned. A DHS spokesperson said that the agency would resist the ruling.

Moss previously served in the Justice Department under President Bill Clinton, before being appointed to his current seat by Barack Obama in 2014.
