Trump's district court nominee withdraws after struggling to answer basic legal questions - ABC News
​By Jordyn Phelps

"After struggling to answer basic legal questions during his confirmation hearing last week, President Donald Trump’s nominee for a U.S. District Court Matthew Spencer Petersen has withdrawn his name from consideration."
"Mr. Petersen has withdrawn his nomination and the president has accepted," a White House official told ABC News."
"Petersen’s withdrawal comes after a video went viral of him fumbling through a line of questioning on points of basic legal procedure by Republican Sen. John Kennedy during a hearing on Wednesday."





====================================================

There was obviously no other option left for him but to withdraw his name after his poor showing at the Senate confirmation hearing. It is good that Senator Kennedy grilled him thoroughly as he did in order to ascertain whether he was the right person for the job or not.
