Judge Merchan’s anti-Trump bias continues to be exposed. Loomer broke that Judge Merchan’s wife, Lara Merchan, was a paid employee of New York Attorney General Letitia James’s office. AG James ran on a platform of “getting Trump.” We also reported Tuesday that The Democrat Attorney’s General Association paid Judge Merchan’s daughter’s company, Authentic Campaigns, for consulting work. Loomer’s exclusive reporting on Loren Merchan reveals she is the partner and part-owner of Authentic Campaigns, a firm whose “featured client” is the Biden-Harris Campaign. Loren Merchan’s X account, known as @LorenM426, featured a profile picture of President Trump behind bars in a jail cell. This further proves President Trump can’t receive a fair trial in Joe Biden’s America. 

Judge Merchan’s mortgage satisfaction document proves that he and Lara are or were married, as the original mortgage section of the document reads “Juan Merchan and Lara Merchan.”

Records show that the New York State Attorney General’s office employed Lara Merchan from 2009-2022. Letitia James became New York AG in 2019. The New York AG’s office had a Democrat AG in office during Lara Merchan’s time there.

Letitia James ran on a “get Trump” platform. A video shows James leading lock-up Trump chants and saying, “The illegitimate President who sits in the White House, his days are numbered. Ultimately, I will bring him down.”

Loomer posted on the Merchan family’s latest conflict of interest, “Do you think they all go on family date nights to the Voodoo shops in Chelsea, NY to put pins into Trump dolls? I think about that sometimes… ”

Loomer also reported that a financial disclosure form from 2023 shows payments from the Democrat Attorney General’s Association to Authentic Campaigns, a company owned by Judge Merchan’s daughter Loren. These payments happened in October 2023, when President Trump’s civil trial was taking place in the case brought by NY AG Letitia James.

Loomer posted on these developments, “Major conflict of interest. Judge Merchan must recuse himself since Michael Cohen is Letitia James’s star witness, as well as @ManhattanDA Alvin Bragg’s star witness in the Stormy Daniel’s case against President Trump under which Judge Merchan is overseeing.”

Loomer previously reported that screenshots show Loren Merchan’s X account resharing a photo of her speaking at an Authentic Campaigns event, an organization she is part-owner of. A zoomed-in photo shows Merchan’s @LorenM426 handle flashing behind her on the podium. An X post from Authentic Campaigns on January 9th, 2020, stated that Authentic Campaigns was “excited to announce that Loren Merchan is being named partner and part-owner of Authentic Campaigns.” Loren Merchan’s X account, @LorenM426, shared this announcement.

Authentic Campaigns’ website lists the Biden-Harris campaign as its “Featured Client.” Other clients of Authentic Campaigns include Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries, Rep. Ilhan Omar, Governor Gavin Newsom, Adam Schiff and the Wisconsin Democratic Party. This raises a significant question: how is President Trump supposed to receive a fair trial when the judge presiding over his case has a daughter whose client is Trump’s main political rival?

These facts make clear that Judge Merchan has a financial interest in Trump being found guilty in the trial he presides over. Merchan must recuse himself from Trump’s case.
