Critics Call For Impeaching Federal Judge Who Criticized Trump On CNN

via KTVB

A federal judge was criticized by conservatives for comments he made about Donald Trump on CNN regarding pending legal cases against the former president.

Judge Reggie Walton characterized Trump’s remarks criticizing a New York judge overseeing his case as “troublesome” and a potential threat.

“And it’s particularly problematic when those comments are in the form of a threat, especially if they’re directed at one’s family,” Walton said. “I mean, we do these jobs because we’re committed to the rule of law and believe in the rule of law, and the rule of law can only function effectively when we have judges who are prepared to carry out their duties without the threat of potential physical harm.”

“It’s very important that people in positions of authority be very circumspect in reference to the things that they say so that they’re not causing others to act on what they say and maybe cause injury or deaths somewhat as a result of that,” he added.

Walton also previously said Trump doesn’t care about democracy based on his claims of election fraud.

Conservatives including a legal group founder said Walton’s comments showed bias and violated codes of conduct for judges commenting on pending matters.

“Unfortunately, we have charlatans like our former president, who doesn’t, in my view, really care about democracy, but only about power. And as a result of that, it’s tearing this country apart,” Walton said.

Trump’s attorney accused prosecutors in New York of coordinating with the Biden administration to hamper Trump politically through legal actions, noting Trump previously wasn’t charged over similar allegations.

“[Garland’s] the puppeteer, effectively, and so is the current president, or resident, as I call him, in the White House. Truly, there is obviously a coordinated effort. There’s no question about that,” attorney Alina Habba said.

“Back in the day, this case was looked at, it was investigated, charges were not brought. Indictments were not made because they knew the case was not real,” Habba said. “Then [Trump] ran for office. They bring the charges. If you look at that timeline alone, I wanna know how they’re gonna wipe this story away because it speaks volumes. You didn’t bring the charges. You said there was no story.”
