New York City, NY – President Trump’s attorneys have requested the recusal of the judge in a criminal case in New York. The case relates to charges of fraud and corruption against the Trump Organization, which has been under investigation for several years.
The attorneys argue that the judge in question, Judge Barrett Roberts, should not be presiding over the case due to her alleged connections to a prosecutor who has been investigating Trump’s businesses. They claim that Judge Roberts has a bias against the president and is not fit to oversee a fair trial.
In response, Judge Roberts has denied the allegations and maintained that she will continue to preside over the case. She stated, “I have no conflict of interest in this matter, and I will judge it impartially and fairly. Any suggestion to the contrary is baseless.”
The Trump Organization has been under investigation for alleged financial crimes, including tax fraud and money laundering. The case has been ongoing for several years, and prosecutors are reportedly close to bringing charges.
The request for recusal by President Trump’s attorneys has added another layer of complexity to the case, which is being closely watched by legal experts and Trump critics alike. Many see the case as a test of the U.S. justice system’s ability to hold powerful individuals and corporations accountable for their actions.
