This is a lawsuit between Trump and plaintiffs against Trump University. It is NOT, for crying out loud … a NATIONAL suit, nor is it a matter of national security. The faked outrage is ludicrous!
I would ask the people trying to make this an issue … if your son or daughter was being sued by the parents of a young girl who died in a car accident while riding in the car of this young man or woman … suspected of texting before the accident … and the Presiding Judge … had … just lost his daughter in a similar accident … don’t you believe the lawyers for the defendant would be screaming for the Judge to recuse himself?!
It is the Defendants duty to his/her client(s) to scrutinize the Presiding Judge in every way possible, securing a FAIR judgement.
Judge Curiel may be born in Indiana … but he is of Mexican Heritage who was a member of the LaRaza Bar Association of Lawyers. He is no longer a member … NOT because he felt he needed to in order to at least appear to be unbiased … But … only … because in order to accept his appointment as a District Judge … he was required to give up membership. The plaintiff’s lawyers are devout supporters of the Democratic Party and have paid hundreds of thousands of dollars to H. Clinton for speeches.
Judge Curiel has friendly ties with the head of Univision (which Trump sued).
The main plaintiff, a woman … was ordered to step out of the suit because … there were several previous glowing endorsements of Trump University made by her.
There are thousands of letters and endorsements submitted by satisfied students of Trump University.
In lieu of this woman having to step out of this suit and the amount of endorsements that have come to light … this Judge … SHOULD have thrown this case out, but did not.
Donald J. Trump has every right to want this Judge to recuse himself, and his reasons are valid.
Anyone saying otherwise simply has an agenda to take Trump down by any means, valid or not … or … they are being hypocritical if they are saying that they would not scrutinize the Judge presiding their case. And, the defendant’s lawyers would be remiss.
Bottom line … this is nothing more that BS. And, since when is it RACIST to call a Mexican … Mexican??
Anybody falling for this crap should be ashamed of themselves this is ridiculous. Everybody … back to your safe-spaces!
