President Trump and his lawyers filed a motion Friday demanding that Judge Merchan recuse himself from presiding over Trump’s upcoming trial on charges brought by Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg. Trump’s recusal motion cited Judge Merchan’s daughter’s work for Authentic Campaigns and her X account as the primary reasons for Merchan’s recusal. Loomer exclusively reported that Loren Merchan 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. The facts make it clear that Judge Merchan must recuse himself for President Trump to receive a fair trial.

President Trump’s recusal motion mentions Loren Merchan’s work with Authentic Campaigns, “Your Honor’s daughter, Loren Merchan, has a direct financial interest in these proceedings by virtue of her ownership stake and leadership role at Authentic Campaigns, Inc. Based on public disbursements data, Authentic, which services exclusively Democrat clients, is the #21 ranked vendor in the country in connection with the 2024 election.”

The recusal motion also mentions Loren Merchan’s X account, “Ms. Merchan apparently “deleted” an X account that contained posts reflecting hostility toward President Trump “last April,” the same month that Your Honor solicited an ethics opinion regarding recusal in a letter containing information that the Court declined to disclose to the defense or the public. The suspicious timing of the alleged decision by Ms. Merchan to “delete” the X account, as well as more recent developments relating to the account, further support this motion.”

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?

 

Loomer posted on these developments, “BREAKING: President Trump just filed a motion requesting Judge Merchan’s RECUSAL from his trial. The motion cites facts from my reporting..It’s another example of WEAPONIZED GOVERNMENT in
@JoeBiden’s America.”

As President Trump’s lead in the polls against Biden continues to grow larger, the New York Democrats controlling the state become increasingly deranged in their attempts to “get Trump.” The prospects of President Trump receiving a fair trial look bleaker each day that Judge Merchan continues with his refusal to recuse himself from the case.
