As the establishment moves to protect it’s asset Judge Gonzalo Curiel with accusations of racism against Donald Trump, a different picture is emerging. Judge Curiel – who is presiding over the Trump University lawsuit – was blasted by Trump over having a racial bias in the case because he is a Mexican was defended in a high profile manner in both the New York Times and the Washington Post. Media Matters, the propaganda shop run by Clinton operative David Brock and partially underwritten by George Soros is also promoting the Trump is a racist meme but the mad rush by the Dems to rehash the failed attacks over the controversial real estate school may be about to backfire. According to a reports on conservative websites, the judge is a member of a legal group affiliated with Latino supremacist organization La Raza.
The Daily Caller reports that “Judge Presiding Over Trump University Case Is Member Of La Raza Lawyers Group”:
United States District Court Judge Gonzalo Curiel, the man presiding over the class-action lawsuit against Trump University, is a member of the La Raza Lawyers of San Diego and oversaw the gift of a law school scholarship to an illegal alien.
In his 2011 judicial questionnaire to become a federal judge, Curiel revealed his history with La Raza. GotNews.com originally reported this Tuesday, and The Daily Caller has independently verified.
Curiel lists “La Raza Lawyers of San Diego” as a legal association he has been a part of in the questionnaire. Curiel’s office at the United States District Court for the Southern District of California confirmed to TheDC the judge’s membership in the group.
Curiel reveals more ties to the group in his questionnaire. He has spoken at two receptions held by La Raza Lawyers of San Diego, the most recent being in 2011. Last year, the group also held a reception for Curiel. The description of the event says, “This year we are proud to be honoring Judge Gonzalo Curiel at our reception and recognizing him for his leadership and support to the community and to our Association.
In addition, Curiel served on the selection committee in 2014 for the La Raza Lawyers of San Diego Scholarship Fund. Six of seven of the recipients of these scholarships ranging from $1500 to $1600 were born in Central America. One of them, Ricardo Elorza, described himself as “undocumented.”
The revelations would seem to be representative of a huge conflict of interest that should lead to calls for the judge to recuse himself from what is increasingly looking like a politically motivated witch hunt.
Interestingly Judge Curiel has now moved to reseal documents related to the Trump University case that he himself had just ordered to be unsealed and which led to a media feeding frenzy. The timing is curious given the unearthing of the apparent ties to La Raza and Queen Hillary’s attacks on Trump over the lawsuit. Also of note is the story that has yet to be completely substantiated that the law firm involved in the Trump University class action suit may have paid the Clintons for speeches, this would be a bombshell if true and could blow the case wide open.
