When a federal judge ruled against Donald Trump this week in a lawsuit against Trump University, he inadvertently unleashed a bombshell involving Democratic rival Hillary Clinton.
U.S. District Court Judge Gonzalo Curiel unsealed documents relating to the Trump U for-profit real estate program. The documents include information used by the school to convince prospective students to join the program.
Curiel is the same judge the presumptive GOP nominee has called “hostile” and biased against him.
“I have a judge who is a hater of Donald Trump, a hater,” Trump said Friday at a campaign rally in San Diego. “He’s a hater. His name is Gonzalo Curiel.”
And a bombshell report from American Spectator seems to lend credence to that claim.
The conservative magazine said that one of the firms picked by Judge Curiel to represent plaintiffs in the class action lawsuit against Trump University have financial ties to Hillary and Bill Clinton.
Financial ties to the tune of half a million dollars.
From American Spectator:
It seems that Robbins Geller “paid the Clintons nearly half a million dollars in less than a year.” Why? Speeches of course.
That’s right. One of the law firms picked by the Judge in the Trump University case — the very Judge Donald Trump accuses by name of anti-Trump bias — awarded this firm the case after — say again after — Hillary and Bill Clinton had been paid a cool $450,000 for two speeches by the firm.
Using data compiled by The Washington Post, LawNewz was among the first to note that Robbins Geller has paid the Clintons $450,000 for speeches.
And as astonishing as all this may be, the apparent conflict of interest has been of little interest to the press.
