New York Supreme Court Justice Juan Merchan does not like Donald Trump, and that is quite evident from statements he has made in the past.
To that point, Donald Trump’s attorneys filed a petition to have Merchan recuse himself from the case.
As expected, Merchan denied the request, reported Newsweek.
In the Best Interest…
In Merchan’s denial, he stated that he believes it is in the public’s best interest to have him preside over this case.
Trump’s attorneys could have taken a variety of approaches, but they chose to focus on a total of $35 in donations that Marchan made to Democrats and Democrat organizations.
They added that Marchan’s daughter, who works for a digital marketing agency that opposes Trump, will benefit if Trump goes down.
Bragg, of course, opposed the recusal.
Merchan, in his decision, stated that “this Court has examined its conscience and is certain in its ability to be fair and impartial,” reported The Washington Post.
That, of course, is a complete and utter lie, as we have already seen with some decisions that were handed down by the court.
Just the fact that Bragg was able to create three dozen felonies off of ledger entries shows you this entire case is set up against Trump.
By the way, it was Merchan who presided over the Trump Organization case that resulted in a fine of $1.6 million, the stiffest penalty allowed.
Believe me, if Marchan gets the chance to stick it to Trump, he is going to take it.
