The judge in the Trump University case, who has been frequently criticized by Donald Trump’s lawyers for perceived political bias, has been revealed to have been a member of a legal group affiliated with the largest radical Hispanic organization in the United States.
According to a report in The Daily Caller, Judge Gonzalo Curiel revealed that he was a member of La Raza Lawyers of San Diego during a questionnaire before his appointment as a federal judge in 2011.
On the group’s home page, its “community” links include the radical group La Raza. La Raza, which translates literally as “the race,” has been critical of Trump’s campaign, even going as far as calling “Saturday Night Live” a “platform for hate” when “SNL” allowed Trump to appear on the show last year.
Curiel, it should be noted noted, has attended at least two meetings of La Raza Lawyers of San Diego and was involved in giving “a law school scholarship to an illegal alien” through the La Raza Lawyers of San Diego Scholarship Fund. He is also a supporter of Hillary Clinton.
“The judge was appointed by Barack Obama, federal judge. Frankly, he should recuse himself because he’s given us ruling after ruling after ruling, negative, negative, negative,” Trump said at a rally in San Diego in late May.
“What happens is the judge, who happens to be, we believe, Mexican, which is great. I think that’s fine,” he added.
In an appearance on “The Alex Jones Radio Show” on Saturday, Trump surrogate Roger Stone said it was time for the judge to recuse himself from the case.
“I think first of all it’s important to establish that the judge is not only a Mexican radical, he’s a Hillary Clinton contributor,” Stone said.
“Trump University was a real estate course and it was a very successful one for many people. Now there were a very small percentage of students who were unhappy with the success of the course because they didn’t go out and make a million dollars immediately,” Stone added.
“There’s an overwhelming satisfaction rate. The number of dollars involved here are relatively small. This scandal pales in comparison to Laureate University.”
Stone is referring to Laureate Education, America’s largest for-profit education provider. Bill Clinton was formerly an honorary chancellor, a cool $16 million dollar gig. However, when it was revealed that Hillary Clinton’s State Department had directed $55 million to a group run by Laureate Chairman Douglas Becker, Bill stepped down from the organization.
“Our organization has not been involved in organizing any of the anti-Trump rallies, much less encouraged our members or anyone to participate in any illegal activity,” La Raza Lawyers of San Diego said in a Wednesday statement. “We help empower Latino attorneys, judges and law students, and provide services to the greater local Latino community.”
Regardless, the fact that a Hillary Clinton contributor was a member of a legal group that gave a scholarship to an illegal alien could be reasonably trusted to sit on a case which involves a man running against Clinton and who has been an outspoken critic of illegal immigration. It turns out Donald Trump was right all along — this judge really is against him personally.
