Judge Marchan NOT Chosen Randomly — The FIX Was In — INJUSTICE Prevails — But Not for Long

Democrat-appointed Judge Juan Merchan went out of his way to stack the deck in favor of Manhattan Democrat District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s false criminal case against former President Donald Trump for allegedly falsifying business records. Merchan was allegedly randomly assigned the Trump and Bannon cases by the New York court system. That is a lie — he was also assigned to the politically motivated cases of Trump CFO on tax fraud as well as his War Room Trump advocate Steve Bannon whom he recently sentenced to 4 months for allegedly lying to Congress.

Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-NY) has filed a complaint with the New York State Unified Court System over the claim that Merchan was randomly assigned the case.

“If justices were indeed being randomly assigned in the Criminal Term, the probability of two specific criminal cases being assigned to the same justice is quite low, and the probability of three specific criminal cases being assigned to the same justice is infinitesimally small,” Stefanik wrote. “And yet, we see Acting Justice Merchan on all three cases.”

Merchan is set to preside over criminal cases against the Trump Organization and former Trump White House Advisor Steve Bannon, “One cannot help but suspect that the ‘random selection’ at work in the assignment of Acting Justice Merchan, a Democrat Party donor, to these cases involving prominent Republicans, is in fact not random at all,” Stefanik added.

Last year, Merchan oversaw the tax fraud case against Trump’s company and former Trump CFO Allen Weisselberg who pled guilty in a plea deal and served as a star witness for the prosecution at the Manhattan trial. Trump was not a defendant. Merchan sentenced Weisselberg to five months in prison, and stated he would have handed down a harsher sentence if he hadn’t already agreed to the plea deal. Two business entities controlled by Trump were found guilty of 17 counts of tax fraud and falsifying business record and ordered to pay the maximum penalty of $1.61 million. During the proceedings, Merchan shut down the suggestion from the Trump Organization’s legal team that the case was a politically motivated prosecution against the former president and told attorneys to focus on the specific charges.

“I will not allow you in any way to bring up a selective prosecution claim, or claim this is some sort of novel prosecution,” Merchan said.

Merchan donated to President Joe Biden’s 2020 Presidential campaign, as well as other Democrat groups opposing Trump’s re-election.

His daughter works for a Democrat political consulting company that has raised millions of dollars off the Trump trial for clients like Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA).

These and other politically motivated cases have involved leftist AG Merrit Garland’s Department of IN-JUSTICE has been involved in state level cases; witnesses for defense have not been allowed; gag orders have been in effect; instructions to juries were very bias and guaranteed guilty verdicts; defense lawyers were hushed up in attempts to intimidate and other unconstitutional actions have been taken.

These corrupt trials will continue to backfire on these Judges and Prosecutors.

Already, donations to Trump campaign have increased as a result.

Even more damaging to Democrats is the fact that a majority of law abiding Americans have lost respect for and confidence in a broken system of Justice.
