There’s good reason why President Trump recently said that the judge overseeing his case, New York Supreme Court Justice Judge Juan Merchan, ‘hates me.’ In fact, there are at least 5 good reasons why this judge should recuse himself IMMEDIATELY thanks to a potential conflict of interest. In this clip, Glenn provides those reasons and he explains why he believes this judge represents a ‘clear partisan [and] political move.’
Below is a rush transcript that may contain errors
GLENN: Let me tell you what happened yesterday.
And I'm going to use it by substituting Stu for Donald Trump. Here's what happened yesterday in court. In the attempt to cover up a crime, Stu committed a crime.
In the attempt of -- in the attempt of covering up a crime, Stu committed a crime.
In the attempt to cover up a crime, Stu committed a crime.
Now, also, I would like to say, that in the attempt to cover up a crime, Stu committed a crime. But I'm not done.
In the attempt to cover up a crime, Stu committed a crime.
STU: Wait. What crime was I trying to cover?
GLENN: Great question, Stu. I wasn't even done. I have 35 of those charges. And they're all very different.
Let me switch to 28. In the attempt to cover up a crime, Stu committed a crime.
STU: What crime?
GLENN: Yeah. That's exactly what I would expect somebody who hates George Soros to say. That's what happened yesterday.
STU: Yeah. He didn't tell us what the crime was.
GLENN: What is the crime? What is the crime?
STU: He only told us what crime he supposedly committed. When he was covering up the crime he wouldn't tell us what it was. Which is amazing.
GLENN: Correct. So we would like to define the crime please.
Could you define the crime?
Now, some people say, it's a campaign finance crime. Well, is it?
Because the FEC turned it down. The feds turned it down. Even the corrupt Justice Department turned this down. But you picked this up, and that's a federal crime.
Unless somehow or near, in Alvin Bragg's head. Well, states, you got to go to the Constitution for this one. So I know this definitely did not happen.
States are in charge of the vote and the election.
So states should be the ones. Really?
STU: It's still a federal crime though. So that would not make any sense. They know they have nothing on that.
GLENN: Well, it's a tax crime.
STU: The tax crime is my favorite.
GLENN: Tax crime. How is it a tax crime?
Wait a minute. Wait a minute.
I heard you should pay your fair share. And I even heard it's patriotic to pay your fair share.
STU: And we've heard for years and years, that Donald Trump will not pay his fair share. He will not pay his taxes this guy.
GLENN: So this is apparently the tax crime.
He paid more taxes by paying Cohen all of the, quote, bribe. Which wasn't a bribe.
He paid that as income, back to him. So he actually paid more taxes, than he should have.
STU: This guy, that they have been begging him to release his tax records. For the entire time, that he's been in the public eye. Just so he could prove, that he does not pay his taxes. Have now tried to put him in prison for paying too much taxes. That's legitimately what happened today.
GLENN: Yeah. It was those -- it was the payment of those extra taxes. That was the attempt to cover up the crime.
STU: That's what they're trying to say.
And if you don't know what happened. Cohen paid $100,000 to good old Stormy.
STU: I mean, who hasn't. She's expensive apparently.
STU: Then to reimburse Cohen. Instead of giving him $130,000, which would have been a reimbursement for an expenditure, but their accusation would have been, it would have to have been recorded in a certain way that may give away that they paid off a porn star. So instead what they did was they paid him a salary of -- I think it was around $400,000. And the thought there was, you give him basically double the money. So he can pay taxes and still maintain the amount he gave to Stormy Daniels. So they didn't want to give him the exact amount.
They gave him more than that. And they gave him a bonus on top of that. I think of $60,000, just for I guess good tidings. So that's basically what they're saying. Is that because he was actually not giving him a payment for work done, instead, they were just repaying him for the expenditure, that they shouldn't have overpaid him. Because that meant too many dollars went to taxes.
That is legitimately what they are trying to get him on. Too many dollars.
GLENN: Right. He paid too much in taxes.
STU: I mean, this is -- I didn't think there would be anything here. We said it before.
GLENN: This is less than we thought.
STU: We said over and over again.
We haven't actually seen the indictment. We haven't seen the charges. And we hold out. Maybe they have something.
GLENN: Well, they do. In the attempt to cover up a crime, Trump committed a crime.
STU: But, no, he didn't. And not to mention, if he did, it passed the statute of limitations.
GLENN: Let me explain it more clearly for you.
In the attempt to cover up a crime, which we don't know about. He paid too many taxes. Okay?
Now how do you feel America? Now, how do you feel?
Now, for those of you who you might think, well, this is a Soros DA. And are we going to be able to get justice?
I want you to know, the judicial system is fair and honorable and honest. Let me tell you a little bit about the judge. Now, you might have heard Donald Trump say, well, this judge is against me. Okay. What?
He didn't vote for you. Is that how he's against you. No. No.
Uh-uh. According to the FEC. The Federal Elections Commission, the ones who decided not to prosecute Donald Trump, because they didn't find a crime.
The judge donated three times to Act Blue in the summer of 2020.
Now, if you don't know what Act Blue is. Congratulations, you're not part of the alliance for the dark lords and the siths.
Act Blue is the -- is the funder or the mechanism that all of the laundered money goes through.
You know, for progressive things. So he has donated three times to Act Blue in the summer of 2020.
Once on July 26, when the judge donation, according to the FEC, was earmarked for President Joe Biden's 2020 presidential campaign. The other two contributions were pledged to the Progressive Turnout Project.
This is a left-wing pact, that rallies voter turnout for democratic candidates. And stop Republicans.
Now, that doesn't sound partisan at all.
So he's funding, quote, stop Republicans, which their whole thing is dedicated to, quote, resisting Trump and the Republican Party.
But it doesn't stop there. No.
His daughter Loren previously worked for Kamala Harris.
Now, she was part of the failed 2020 presidential campaign. So I don't know if we just say she was just a partisan hack. Or just stupid.
I mean, who worked on that campaign?
She is now the president of a consulting company, that proudly lists the Biden/Harris campaign as its client.
STU: It's just --
GLENN: Oh, my gosh.
STU: You can't make it up. You can't make this up.
You can't make this up.
So she went to Sunni. The college -- the crazy liberal Cloward and Piven college in New York.
She has now deleted her LinkedIn page, which listed her pronouns, confirmed she graduated from Sunni in 2011. And the account also showed in 2019, she worked as the director of digital persuasion. For Kamala Harris for the people.
Digital persuasion. Wow!
What a euphemism. That sounds like propaganda. Or brainwashing.
Currently, she serves as president of authentic campaigns. A consulting digital advertise -- now, you go from digital persuasion, to authentic campaigns.
Oh, yeah. There's no -- there's no psychosis there. There's no split personality there. Unless they're doing exactly the same thing.
This is an online fundraising agency that raised $250 million for progressive campaigns. Could I just ask, do we have anything like this that I've never heard of?
You know, I've never heard of authentic campaigns before. And they've raised $250 million.
Do we have John Adams for sticking it up their butt?
Do we have that pact or anything?
STU: Dot-com. Yes.
GLENN: Okay. They've raised 250. A video of a smiling Harris being greeted by a crowd of supporters.
Is the autoplay on the site's landing page? Also, Biden/Harris campaign logo is at the top of its campaign roster.
Authentic campaigns have won a collection of accolades, mostly for its work on the Harris campaign.
While Loren was awarded the covenant 2020, rising star title, considered one of the most prestigious honors in the campaign world.
The president of -- of authentic -- authentic campaigns is Loren Merchen. Wow.
That's the daughter of the judge. In a pair of Truth Social posts, Trump said, yeah. He's a highly partisan judge that hates him.
I don't think that goes far enough, Don. I don't think that goes far enough.
This is clearly a partisan political move. And the judge is bought and paid for.
I don't know how you don't get at least him to recuse himself. Or a change of venue.
But I don't think you will. Now, here's the extra super special part. Alvin, you know him. One of the chipmunks, also now running the New York DA.
Alvin said -- I'm just thinking, there's a parody song in there, someplace, with all the crime going on, and somebody just going, Alvin!
Anyway, Alvin is -- is making sure that all this is on the up and up.
And so the next time the court will meet on this subject, is January of '24.
Now, they're telling him early, because, you know, the Iowa caucus is happening in January of '24.
If this isn't so obvious of what's going on, they clearly want Donald Trump to be the candidate. They clearly want him to be the candidate.
They also clearly don't want him to be the candidate.
This is why I always say, you know, don't play these little games. Don't -- don't play these little games. Just do the next right thing.
Because the last time they played this little game, and they were like, we'll outsmart him.
We'll show America highway stupid he is. We'll put Trump wall-to-wall coverage.
Didn't work out the way you thought it would.
I have a feeling, this might not work out the way you might think it would either.
