Former AG and a Latino Alberto Gonzales: Trump right to question judge’s fairness

This whole story line has been greatly overblown simply because the corrupt media thinks they found a way to injure Trump.
  Wrong again, folks!  This whole thing amounts to a whole lot of nothing that won’t hurt Trump in the least.  In fact, the media fuss helps him in the long run. 

The Hill reports former Attorney General Alberto Gonzales says Donald Trump is right to challenge the fairness a judge overseeing lawsuits against him.
“An independent judiciary is extremely important. But that value is not the only one in play here,” Gonzales wrote in a Saturday op-ed for The Washington Post.

"Equally important, if not more important from my perspective as a former judge and U.S. attorney general, is a litigant’s right to a fair trial,” he continued.

“The protection of that right is a primary reason why our Constitution provides for an independent judiciary. If judges and the trials over which they preside are not perceived as impartial, the public will quickly lose interest in the rule of law upon which our nation is based.”

Trump on Thursday said U.S. District Judge Gonzalo Curiel’s Hispanic ethnicity is “an absolute conflict” in three civil fraud lawsuits against the billionaire.

Good for Alberto for manning up and speaking truth to the corrupt media.  Paul Ryan doesn’t have half the cajones Alberto Gonzales has.
