Addy Schmitt Comments on DC's Female Judges in NPR

"DC's Female Judges Are Central To The Russia Imbroglio, Often Behind The Scenes"



Addy Schmitt, who served as a law clerk for the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, commented on the role of several female federal judges who are overseeing proceedings related to the attempts by Russia to influence the 2016 U.S. presidential election. "The women on the DC federal bench are playing a critical role in these historic events, and it is so exciting to watch," Schmitt said. The judges "have all handled pressure and adversity to get where they are and that experience is serving them well," she added. "No doubt some will criticize their decisions but it will be hard to criticize their thoughtfulness and integrity."
