Anti-Trump Judge Slammed With Complaint After CNN Interview

A prominent Trump supporter wants liberals to understand that lawfare is a game that both sides can play.

The conservative legal group, the Article III Project, headed by activist and former Supreme Court clerk Michael Davis, is reportedly going after a U.S. district judge who, in a recent CNN interview, essentially accused Trump of threatening a judge in New York and the judge’s daughter.

The gag order ordered by Justice Juan Merchan, who is supervising Trump’s trial in Manhattan for allegedly fabricating company documents, was endorsed by D.C. District Judge Reggie Walton during Thursday’s CNN appearance.

The social media postings made by Trump about Merchan and her daughter, according to Walton, were completely unacceptable in the US.

Relentless Democratic prosecutors, such as special counsel Jack Smith at the federal level, Manhattan’s DA Alvin Bragg, and Fulton County, Georgia’s  Fani Willis, have repeatedly pushed the boundaries of the law to the breaking point to prosecute Trump on criminal charges.

The claim that judges are vested in upholding the rule of law about Trump and his followers may not hold water with conservatives or even intellectually honest Americans.

That doesn’t even take into consideration the notorious civil case filed by New York Attorney General Letitia James, which seeks to financially cripple or perhaps bankrupt Trump for participating in ordinary real estate transactions.

Davis accused Walton of making “highly prejudicial” remarks against Trump in a complaint he filed with the Judicial Council of the District of Columbia Circuit Court, which is in charge of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit.

Included in the case are Trump’s statements made on Truth Social in which he called Merchan’s daughter a “Rabid Trump Hater” and claimed that she had shared a photo of Trump in jail, a claim that Collins denied.

The lawsuit also highlighted that Collins promoted the interview on her X account, which significantly boosted its viewership compared to the average CNN audience:
