Trump VP hopeful Elise Stefanik files ‘misconduct’ suit against judge overseeing hush money trial

New York Republican congresswoman Elise Stefanik, one of several prominent GOP figures currently jostling to be former President Donald Trump’s running mate, has filed a misconduct complaint against Judge Juan Merchan. She alleged that his appointment to Trump’s ongoing Manhattan hush money trial was “not random at all.” Merchan previously donated to the Democratic Party. Stefanik raised questions about whether Merchan was intentionally selected to handle cases involving Donald Trump, the Trump Organization and Steven Bannon for higher conviction chances.
