For several weeks True Pundit has hammered U.S. District Judge Tanya Chutkan including her blatant conflicts of interest in the Fusion GPS case.
On Thursday the United States District Court for the District of Columbia re-assigned the Fusion GPS bank record case to a new federal judge, removing Chutkan from making any additional decisions on the case. This is highly unusual move but in this case quite necessary.
Chutkan was presiding over a case that could implicate Barack Obama. She donated campaign cash to Obama. After his election, he appointed both her and her husband as judges. Other Chutkan family members also contributed to Obama’s political coffers.
The mere fact that Fusion GPS’ bank records could implicate Hillary Clinton and her former boss Obama is reason enough to believe Chutkan would opt on the side of The Swamp, in an effort to further protect Obama and his cartel which at this point may or may not include the federal judge who should have recused herself from the case.
Just days ago the Obama crony helped Fusion GPS seal their financial records to keep its clients secret, after Congress subpoenaed the financial records.
Chutkan has a history of not recusing herself from cases with a direct and personal conflict so why would she stop now. She presided over a Homeland Security case without notifying the court or plaintiff’s attorneys she had a close family relative who works for DHS.
Judges may not preside over cases in which they have a direct personal bias or financial interest concerning a party to the case, according to federal law.
But Chutkan is the D.C. District Court’s poster girl for conflicts.
No one else in the media seemed to care very much about that fact, which is telling in itself.
One of the True Pundit stories — published Oct. 29th entitled CRONY: Obama-Appointed Judge Seals Fusion GPS Bank Records; Ruling Insulates Obama, Clinton, FBI — went viral.
So True Pundit is taking partial credit here for the unorthodox and court-mandated recusal. Simply because this story was ignored by the media.
The Fusion GPS case has been re-assigned to Richard J. Leon, a Senior District Judge for the District of Columbia. Leon was not appointed by Obama.
Chutkan is presiding also over the Imran Awan and Hina Alvi bank fraud case in D.C. Chutkan made headlines when it was reported she was appointed to the federal bench by Obama after she kicked thousands in campaign donations to his presidential campaign.
Obama also appointed Chutkan’s husband, Peter Krauthamer, a judge to the bench in the District of Columbia Superior Court in 2011.
Chutkan was born in Jamaica. She lived in Jamaica, the Bahamas, France and Spain before coming to the United States, federal law enforcement sources said.
Chutkan’s former law firm, where she worked until her appointment to the federal bench in 2014, currently represents Huma Abedin, the wife of disgraced former Congressman Anthony Weiner. The firm also is stacked with Democratic lawyers who worked for Hillary Clinton, John Podesta, and Barack Obama’s White House, just to name a few D.C. insiders.
