Trump Orders Judge To Overturn Case Claiming It’s Unconstitutional

By Victor Winston, updated on March 27, 2024

In a striking move, former President Donald Trump lambasted Judge Juan Merchan following the imposition of a gag order in his New York criminal case.

In a series of critical remarks, Trump accused Judge Juan Merchan and his daughter of bias against him, branding the gag order as unconstitutional, and demanded the judge recuse himself from the case, Breitbart News reported.

The Gag Order Sparks Controversy

Judge Juan Merchan, who oversees Donald Trump's New York criminal case, recently issued a gag order limiting Trump's ability to publicly comment on trial participants, including witnesses, the District Attorney's staff, and their families.

Trump responded vehemently on Truth Social, condemning the order as "illegal, un-American, [and] unconstitutional."

Trump's criticism extended to Judge Merchan's daughter, Loren Merchan. He claimed she demonstrated bias through a social media post depicting him in prison attire. Loren Merchan's position as president and partner of Authentic Campaigns, a company with ties to Democratic politicians, further fueled Trump's allegations of unfair treatment.

Political Connections Under Scrutiny

As reported by Breitbart News, Loren Merchan's professional background includes work with "Kamala Harris for the People" in 2019. Her association with Democrat-aligned Authentic Campaigns raises questions about potential conflicts of interest, given Judge Merchan's role in Trump's trial.

Trump articulated his concerns on social media, stating,

Judge Juan Merchan, who is suffering from an acute case of Trump Derangement Syndrome (whose daughter represents Crooked Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, Adam “Shifty” Schiff, and other Radical Liberals, has just posted a picture of me behind bars.

So, let me get this straight: the Judge’s daughter is allowed to post pictures of her ‘dream’ of putting me in jail... How can this be allowed? The Judge has to recuse himself immediately, and right the wrong committed by not doing so last year.

This detailed accusation highlights Trump’s view of an intricate web of bias, suggesting an untenable conflict of interest at the heart of the trial.

Repercussions and Calls for Recusal

Trump's request for Judge Merchan’s recusal comes amid sharp criticisms of the criminal justice system. He points to the gag order and Loren Merchan's alleged actions as indicative of a broader attempt to silence and penalize him unfairly.

The controversy touches on broader themes of free speech, judicial impartiality, and the intertwining of political affiliations within legal proceedings. It opens a complex dialogue on the standards to which public officials and their families are held, particularly in highly charged political cases.

In summary, former President Donald Trump has directly challenged Judge Juan Merchan's neutrality in his New York criminal case based on the imposition of a gag order and allegations concerning Merchan's daughter's political affiliations.

Trump's vehement objections on social media platforms underscore his demand for Merchan's recusal, framing the incident as part of broader concerns about constitutional rights and the fairness of the judicial process.
