Is Peter Thiel Angling For Donald Trump Supreme Court Nomination?

by Graham Gremore September 15, 2016

Here’s a frightening thought: Proud gay Republican/anti-government tech billionaire Peter Thiel as your next Supreme Court Justice. According to the Huffington Postthis may not be outside the realm of possibility under a President Donald J. Trump.

A source close to the Trump campaign says the Republican nominee for President “deeply loves Peter Thiel” and thinks that he would make an excellent Supreme Court justice. So much so that he may have already offered him a spot, should he be elected to the oval office.

Thiel acquired a J.D. from Stanford Law School in 1992. He briefly clerked for Judge J. L. Edmondson of the United States Court of Appeals for the 11th Circuit the year after he graduated, and worked a whopping seven months at a New York law firm. But that’s about the extent of his legal experience. (Aside from the whole hiring a team of lawyers to sue Gawker out of existence thing.)

Huffington Post adds:

It’s not clear whether Trump has indeed offered to nominate Thiel ? only that Thiel has said Trump would nominate him and that Trump’s team has discussed Thiel as a possible nominee. Both sources requested anonymity, given that Trump and Thiel have each demonstrated a willingness to seek revenge against parties they feel have wronged them. In Thiel’s case, he secretly financed lawsuits against Gawker.com with the intention of destroying the publication. He succeeded, and his role in the assault was only revealed in the final stages.

Trump’s press secretary said there is “absolutely no truth” to rumors that Trump had offered Thiel a seat on the Supreme Court. Thiel’s rep also denied the claims, saying he “hasn’t had any conversations about a Supreme Court nomination and has no interest in the job.”

Of course, being nominated for a seat on the Supreme Court and actually getting the job are two different things. Thiel would still need to be confirmed by the Senate, which we’re pretty sure would never happen. But it’s still a terrifying thought nonetheless.
