A judge in the state of Utah has been suspended
after attacking President Donald Trump in the court an the Internet.
The state’s Supreme Court has allowed the six month suspension stay in effect because,
it said, the judge undermined the public confidence. “It is an immutable and universal rule that
judges are not as funny as they think they are,” it said in its decision, The New York
Times reported. “Every time a judicial officer engages in
misconduct, he or she spends the good will of the judiciary as a whole. Here, we readily
conclude that Judge Kwan has been spending our good will,” the court said.
Judge Kwan isn’t the first judge to be accused of violating the axiom that the judiciary
should be separated from politics. A federal judge in San Antonio was suspended in 2016
from conducting naturalization ceremonies after telling new United States citizens that
they should “go to another country” if they did not like Mr. Trump’s presidency,
The San Antonio Express-News reported. Mr. Trump had also publicly lodged his own
complaints about judges’ partisanship, particularly those who had ruled against his administration. In explaining Judge Kwan’s suspension, the
Utah Supreme Court described a January 2017 exchange between the judge and an unidentified
individual in his courtroom who was proposing that they paid court fines with money from
their tax return. “You do realize that we have a new president,
and you think we are getting any money back?” Judge Kwan asked. “I hope,” the person said.
“You hope?” Judge Kwan said. “I pray and I cross my fingers,” the person
replied. “Prayer might be the answer,” Judge Kwan
said, “‘cause, he just signed an order to start building the wall and he has no money
to do that, and so if you think you are going to get taxes back this year, uh-yeah, maybe,
maybe not. But don’t worry, there is a tax cut for the wealthy so if you make over $500,000
you’re getting a tax cut.” The Utah Supreme Court also outlined “blunt,
and sometimes indelicate, criticism” that Judge Kwan posted on his LinkedIn profile
and private Facebook page in 2016 and 2017. The Salt Lake Tribune

    Karma will be a bad dose of medicine that will be hard to swallow without choking. When the Tribunals hang the first several idiots of the democRATS. It will cause great fear for any high office holders to cringe in fear…. They will run and hide. We know where they live. They cannot stay off their I-Phones. We know where they are.
