President Trump is requesting that the Clinton judge overseeing his Russiagate case be removed due to obvious conflicts of interest.
The corrupt liberal machine does not believe in addressing their obvious conflicts of interest. We saw it in the Russiagate nightmare. Corrupt FBI Director Jim Comey was fired and his good friend, former FBI Director Robert Mueller was assigned over his case.
The entire team that was put together under Mueller was a group of far-left nutty corrupt Hillary-loving and Trump-hating prosecutors and investigators. The entire investigation was a sham run by biased individuals who hated President Trump and who were on a mission to remove him from office.
President Trump recently sued a number of individuals for their actions related to the Russiagate sham nightmare that these corrupt Democrats and RINOs put America through. But somehow this case was assigned to a Bill Clinton appointed judge.
Now the President is moving that the courts replace the Clinton judge with someone who is not biased. The Washington Examiner reports:
Former President Donald Trump wants to remove the federal judge assigned to his lawsuit against Hillary Clinton, the Democratic National Committee, and others tied to the so-called “Russiagate” controversy.
Trump’s legal team filed a motion to disqualify U.S. District Court Judge Donald Middlebrooks, who is based in West Palm Beach, Florida, citing how the judge was nominated by former President Bill Clinton in 1997, when his spouse was the first lady.
The filing stresses that “there exists a reasonable basis that Judge Middlebrooks’ impartiality will be questioned” and notes the lawsuit is levied, in part, against Hillary Clinton, who ran an unsuccessful presidential campaign against Trump in 2016.
In addition, the motion cites Section 455 of the U.S. Code, which states, “Any justice, judge, or magistrate judge of the United States shall disqualify himself in any proceeding in which his impartiality might reasonably be questioned.”
Trump’s filing does not make any mention of Middlebrooks’s decision in 2016 to toss a civil racketeering lawsuit against Clinton which alleged that the former secretary of state used her private email account and changed U.S. foreign policy to seek speaking fees and donations to the Clinton Foundation.
Conflicts of interest can be real or perceived. This conflict is real and perceived.
