Original post made by Michael Austin , Pleasanton Meadows, on May 12, 2023

During Senate hearing for nominee Charmelle Bjelkergren, she was asked basic questions on the U.S. Constitution.

"Tell me what is article V of the constitution"?
Her answer: "Article V is not coming to mind at the moment."

"How about Article ll?"
Her answer: "Neither is Article ll."

With Feinstein return to the senate, she was confirmed.

Charmelle Bjelkengren was nominated by President Joe Biden to serve as Judge US District Court for eastern Washington.

Bjelkengren previously served as administrative law Judge for driver's License disputes and unemployment disputes.

A third question she was asked during her senate nominee hearings was "What is Purpovism?" She was unable to answer that question as well.

Bjelkengren is just one of several nominees being confirmed for Federal judge positions, without any prior experience in the judicial system.
