Now what do we think would be the reaction from the press and democrats if this were a judge appointed by a Republican president? That’s right – conflict of interest – recusal – recusal – recusal – constitutional crisis. Yet strangely, all we hear are crickets.
from Fox News:
Judge who upheld Trump subpoena donated to Dems on committee seeking the records
The New York federal judge who ruled on Wednesday that the Trump administration must comply with two subpoenas from the House Financial Services and Intelligence Committees has donated in the past to a slew of big-name Democrats — including two who currently sit on those committees, according to federal election filings.
After an hour of oral arguments, Barack Obama-appointed U.S. District Judge Edgardo Ramos ruled the subpoenas to Deutsche Bank and Capital One have “a legitimate legislative purpose,” and that Trump was unlikely to prevail in a lawsuit to quash the requests. Judges have the option to recuse themselves if there is an appearance of bias.
