Adam Schiff Fundraises Following Trump's Guilty Verdict Amid Judicial Controversy

 June 1, 2024

Former President Donald Trump was convicted on multiple counts in a recent trial overseen by a judge connected to a top Democrat's aide.

According to Breitbart, The verdict against Donald Trump on 34 counts sparked immediate fundraising by Rep. Adam Schiff, who has ties to the presiding judge's daughter, raising questions about potential conflicts of interest.

Following the jury's decision in Manhattan, Rep. Adam Schiff initiated fundraising efforts. These actions were swiftly spotlighted by his campaign, particularly in an email that Trump campaign officials quickly publicized.

Connections Between Judge Merchan and Schiff's Campaign Exposed

Judge Juan Merchan, who presided over Trump’s trial, has a daughter, Loren Merchan, who is heavily involved in Democratic campaign strategies. Loren serves as the president of Authentic Campaigns, which has provided services to politicians like Schiff.

The connection between Judge Merchan and Schiff came under intense scrutiny, especially since the judge did not step away from the trial despite his daughter's professional engagements. This has led some, including Trump's team, to question the impartiality of the judicial process in this case.

Trump spokesman Steven Cheung articulated the sentiment that the familial link between Judge Merchan and Schiff's campaign associate posed a serious conflict of interest. Cheung described the situation as one that compromised the justice system's integrity.

Political Repercussions and Calls for Action

The controversy intensified when statements surfaced in March, where Trump's team vehemently criticized Judge Merchan's continued involvement in the trial. They championed his recusal to maintain the judiciary's integrity.

Following the guilty verdict, the criticisms gained more traction. Steven Cheung emphasized, "Authentic Campaigns, and thus the judge’s daughter, is actively making money from this sham attack against President Trump, rendering Judge Merchan conflicted."

Republican Senator JD Vance also weighed in, suggesting that the Republican party needs to take decisive actions, "Why was a Judge whose family has gotten rich off of Democrat Party fundraising allowed to preside over this thing in the first place?...We can not just sit on our hands...We have to be willing to fight back...We should be subpoenaing Judge Merchan and his daughter."


The sequence of events and the sharp reactions from various sides reflect deep-seated concerns about the neutrality of the judiciary, especially in politically charged trials. The timing of Schiff's fundraising efforts, right after the guilty verdict, further complicated public perceptions.

Critics, like Steven Cheenucqng, have been forthright in their disapproval. He stated, "The judge should do the right thing and immediately recuse himself to show the American people that the Democrats have not destroyed our justice system completely... him continuing to be involved in this Crooked Joe Biden-directed Witch Hunt is a complete violation of applicable rules, regulations, and ethics."

The case involving former President Trump has garnered significant attention not only for the verdict but also for the surrounding controversies involving the presiding judge's impartiality and immediate political actions following the verdict. The nexus between Judge Merchan and Democratic fundraising efforts through his daughter and the subsequent actions by Schiff highlight the complex interactions between judiciary decisions and political maneuvers.
