Democrats Connected to NY Judge in Trump Trial Raised $93 Million from Case

Democrats linked to the judge overseeing President Donald Trump’s so-called “hush money” trial in New York fundraised a staggering $93 million off the back of the case, according to reports.

Concerns regarding potential conflicts of interest have continued to resurface in the trial of Trump’s hush-money case.

Sources close to Trump’s legal team say the defense is considering a motion for Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Juan Merchan’s recusal.

This follows remarks from a former prosecutor suggesting that Judge Merchan’s daughter’s political ties could compromise the impartiality of the trial.

The focus of concern lies with Loren Merchan, the president of Authentic Campaigns, a progressive political consulting firm based in Chicago.

As Slay News has previously reported, the firm boasts prominent Democrat clients, including Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) and the Senate Majority PAC.

Trump’s spokesperson, Steven Cheung, emphasized the financial benefit Loren’s firm gains from the case.

The connection raises questions about potential conflicts of interest.

Loren Merchan’s firm has been instrumental in raising substantial campaign funds, notably aiding Schiff’s US Senate campaign, which accumulated $20 million in donations since leveraging Trump’s indictment last April.

The Senate Majority PAC, supporting Democrat Senate campaigns, amassed $73.6 million in donations following Trump’s indictment.

The company also currently works with the Biden-Harris re-election campaign.

Critics have pointed to the potential bias stemming from Justice Merchan’s daughter’s involvement in anti-Trump politics.

Legal experts, including constitutional and criminal law attorney Alan Dershowitz, have highlighted the legal basis for recusal due to close relationships.

Loren Merchan’s prior work for Vice President Kamala Harris’s 2020 presidential campaign and her public commentary on digital media suggest a political stance that may impact the judge’s objectivity.

In response to mounting concerns, Justice Merchan issued a limited gag order on Trump.

As Slay News reported, the order restricts Trump’s ability to publicly criticize certain trial participants while permitting comments about the judge and his family.

Trump, however, took to his Truth Social platform to express his grievances.

He alleges bias on Merchan’s part and references his daughter’s political affiliations.

“Judge Juan Merchan, a very distinguished looking man, is nevertheless a true and certified Trump Hater who suffers from a very serious case of Trump Derangement Syndrome,” Trump wrote.

“In other words, he hates me!

“His daughter is a senior executive at a Super Liberal Democrat firm that works for Adam ‘Shifty’ Schiff, the Democrat National Committee, Senate Majority PAC, and even Crooked Joe Biden.”

As the trial date approaches, questions persist regarding the impartiality of the judicial process, particularly given the involvement of individuals with political ties.

Justice Merchan has previously supported Democrat causes.

The judge had donated to several Democrats, including President Biden’s 2020 election campaign.

Merchan has yet to address these concerns publicly, however.

The potential ramifications of political affiliations in the judiciary underscore the need for a transparent and impartial legal process.

With the trial set to begin on April 15, Trump’s legal team’s considerations for Merchan’s recusal add further complexity to an already wild legal battle facing Trump as he pursues a comeback bid for the White House.
