That “So-Called” Judge Ctd.Posted: February 5, 2017
Not content with his previous verbal lashing against the federal judge who enjoined his travel ban, the president has escalated his verbal assault on the judge with his latest tweets:
Mr. Trump’s tweets about the judge have gone well beyond fair criticism and now border on express incitement. He is trying to intimidate the judge, indeed all judges who would dare to question the constitutionality of his executive orders. The president’s attacks on our independent judiciary are beyond irresponsible.
The words of one Connecticut lawyer are not enough to persuade the president of the importance of our federal and state judiciaries. But if the members of our profession stand and speak together, I believe we can make a difference. I ask all bar associations across the country to condemn the president’s reckless comments. We must all speak, now, before it is too late.
