Who is this judge and why does it matter?
Mueller Selected Judge – Amy Berman Jackson – Keeps Manafort in Solitary Confinement Threatens Gag Order on Roger Stone!
Feb. 04, 2019—Judge Amy Berman Jackson has been assigned to most, if not all, of the Mueller prosecutions. Canon 2 of the Code of Judicial Conduct requires judges to recuse if their involvement raises even the appearance of impropriety.
Jackson has layers of conflicts of interest in violation of multiple Canons in matters related to Robert Mueller and Hillary Clinton:
- Judge Amy Berman Jackson has permitted her long-time former law partners from Trout Cacheris LLP, Robert Trout and Gloria B. Solomon, to represent parties in the Mueller matters. The appearance of impropriety and conspiracy with Mueller’s political agenda is evident.
- Judge Amy Berman Jackson holds direct financial interests in at least two institutions who are notoriously-known donors to The Clinton Foundation (four Fidelity funds and two Capital one funds). This is actual impropriety requiring recusal.
- Judge Amy Berman Jackson concealed about 85 holdings in corporate stocks in 2009 by shifting them into 44 mutual funds that hold those (and more Clintonistas) stocks in 2012. While she may have relied upon the highly dubious “safe harbor” “concept” (it is not a rule, policy or procedure, and certainly is not law since Mar. 14, 2001—yet the judicial community enthusiastically embraces it as gospel—it is described merely as a “concept”) to conceal secret holdings of corporate stocks behind a paper thin mutual fund veil, once those stock holdings are discovered, she has an ethical duty to account for this appearance of impropriety surrounding her concealment. She has been silent.
- Much worse is the fact that approximately 43% of the corporate stock holdings of the “top ten” largest stocks in the portfolios of her 2012 mutual funds are notoriously known donors to The Clinton Foundation and its 35 related entities.
From a strictly financial view, Judge Amy Berman Jackson’s 44 institutional holdings (2012) are “friends of Hillary and Bill Clinton” with an obvious interest in Mueller Special Counsel outcomes that are favorable to Hillary—and therefore to Hillary’s Clinton Foundation donors in whom Jackson is invested.
From an ethical and moral point of view, Judge Amy Berman Jackson’s ethical duties are crystal clear. She must recuse herself immediately, along with Mueller’s equally conflicted special prosecutor, Jeannie S. Rhee.
RIGGED JUSTICE: Mueller, the prosecutor, should not be allowed to pick the judges over his cases, as he has done by picking Judge Amy B. Jackson!
A judge and prosecutor must be assigned who are without biases. Only then can the defendants have any hope of a fair proceeding.
The Code of Conduct for Federal Judges is meaningless if Judge Amy Berman Jackson—with such egregious Clinton Foundation conflicts of interest—does not recuse herself immediately.
