Former attorney general: Trump right to question judge’s fairness

Former Attorney General Alberto Gonzales says Donald Trump is right to challenge the fairness a judge overseeing lawsuits against him.

“An independent judiciary is extremely important. But that value is not the only one in play here,” Gonzales wrote in a Saturday op-ed for The Washington Post.

“Equally important, if not more important from my perspective as a former judge and U.S. attorney general, is a litigant’s right to a fair trial,” he continued.

“The protection of that right is a primary reason why our Constitution provides for an independent judiciary. If judges and the trials over which they preside are not perceived as impartial, the public will quickly lose interest in the rule of law upon which our nation is based.”

    Selective law enforcement and our justice department have made a mockery of the rule of law.

  • Trump has no right to claim that a judge is being unfair based on the judge’s race or “heritage” – especially when the judge was born in Indiana and is an America -not a Mexican. Which part of that is NOT racist?

    Trump made this claim with zero proof – he’s trying to claim that because he proposed building a wall along the Southern border, that this is the reason the judge can’t be impartial.

    What horsesh*t!
