Presumed Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump has been under fire from critics regarding the lawsuit surrounding Trump University that alleged the real estate educational program was fraudulent.
Earlier this week, a federal judge hearing the case ruled against Trump and ordered internal Trump U documents to be unsealed, which included a “playbook” for recruiting people to the program. The candidate’s lawyers had asked the judge to keep these records from the public.
However, Trump supporters have unsealed some information of their own regarding U.S. District Court Judge Gonzalo Curiel and his blatant bias against the presumptive GOP nominee. As it turned out, this judge has massive financial ties to none other than Hillary Clinton.
Trump has repeatedly called Curiel “hostile” and biased against him, but many people did not take his accusations seriously until a bombshell report was released showing the judge’s ties to Clinton.
“I have a judge who is a hater of Donald Trump, a hater,” Trump said Friday at a campaign rally in San Diego, the same city where the judge sits. “He’s a hater. His name is Gonzalo Curiel.”
American Spectator then published a report that certainly supported the GOP candidate’s claim.
One of the firms picked by Curiel to represent plaintiffs in the class action lawsuit against Trump University had financial ties to the Clinton family, according to the conservative magazine.
In fact, those financial ties equal nearly half a million dollars paid to the Clintons by the firm for “speeches.”
“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,” the Spectator wrote.
Robbins Geller, the plaintiff’s firm in question, paid this massive sum to America’s favorite corrupt family in less than a year, according to LawNewz, using data compiled by The Washington Post.
“Defendant became the front-runner for the Republican nomination in the 2016 presidential race, and has placed the integrity of these court proceedings at issue,” the judge said in his order unsealing the Trump U documents, according to Politico.
But it seems that a half-a-million-dollar bias against a party in a case also places the integrity of these court proceedings — and the judge presiding over them — at issue.
Curiel should recuse himself from hearing this case, as his obvious bias could affect the outcome and subsequently hurt Trump in his race against Clinton for the White House in November.
