GOP Chair Stefanik Hits DC Judge Linked To Trump Case With Ethics Complaint

via CNN

House GOP Conference Chair Elise Stefanik, R-N.Y., has called for an ethics probe into DC District Judge Beryl Howell over a speech she gave, blaming the Capitol violence on “big lies” and warning of troubling moments in the country.

Stefanik accused Howell of making inappropriate remarks and having close relationships with partisan friends.

Howell, previously chief judge of the DC District Court, had turned over communications between Trump and his lawyer to Special Counsel Jack Smith and criticized federal prosecutors for being lenient on Jan. 6 protesters.

Stefanik also highlighted Howell’s relationships with Obama-era Attorney General Loretta Lynch and current Deputy Attorney General Lisa Monaco.

“As outlined in detail below, Judge Howell’s partisan speech is obviously highly inappropriate election interference by a federal judge that undermines the public’s trust in our courts,” Rep. Elise Stefanik said.

“Moreover, the public display of the cozy personal relationships between Judge Howell and her partisan friends who appear before her undermines public trust in judicial independence,” she wrote.

“It’s particularly shocking to hear the former Attorney General of the United States praise a sitting federal judge for her handling of the grand-jury proceedings on pending federal criminal charges against a defendant (President Trump), the pending criminal cases against his January 6 supporters, and even make the legal conclusion that an ‘insurrection’ occurred on January 6–despite the fact even the over-the-top Biden Special Counsel Jack Smith never brought such charges against any January 6 defendant,” Stefanik wrote.

“I’ve been in awe of how you remain a model of calm and grace when carrying enormous responsibility for the safety of so many,” DC District Judge Beryl Howell previously said of Monaco.

Stefanik noted, “Judge Howell’s 16 minutes of substantive remarks had little to do with women representing white-collar criminal defendants – and they were hardly apolitical, let alone politically neutral.”

“DC Obama Judge Beryl Howell gave a highly inappropriate speech in which she insinuated the election of President Trump will lead to fascism in America.”

“She also inappropriately allowed a public display of her cozy personal relationships with her partisan friends who appear before her, including the Biden Deputy Attorney General who supervises the January 6 criminal prosecutions,” she said.

This move follows Stefanik’s previous ethics complaint against a New York Supreme Court Judge.
