Judge Makes Anti-Trump Remarks in Court and on Facebook, Pays the Price

A Utah judge was suspended without pay for making anti-Trump remarks in court and on Facebook.

The Supreme Court in Utah suspended Taylorsville Justice Court Judge Michael Kwan for six months for undermining public confidence over a series of anti-Trump comments he made both in court and on social media.

“Welcome to the beginning of the fascist takeover,” Kwan wrote on Facebook referring to Trump’s presidency. “We need to be diligent in questioning congressional Republicans if they are going to be the American Reichstag and refuse to stand up for the Constitution, refuse to uphold their oath of office, and enable the tyrants to consolidate their power.”

Kwan also made comments about the “Access Hollywood” tape where Trump made lewd comments about groupies and gold diggers. “Think I’ll go to the shelter to adopt a cat before the President-Elect grabs them all,” Kwan wrote on Facebook referring to the “Access Hollywood” tape.

On another occasion, Kwan blasted a defendant who said he would pay off hefty court fines with his tax rebate, saying Trump’s tax cuts are only for the very wealthy.

Kwan is the son of Chinese immigrants who fled persecution and he feels his anti-Trump comments were more about policies rather than candidates.

But the Utah Supreme Court felt differently and suspended him without pay.

“Judge Kwan’s behavior denigrates his reputation as an impartial, independent, dignified, and courteous jurist who takes no advantage of the office in which he serves,” said the ruling, authored by Utah Supreme Court Justice John A. Pearce. “And it diminishes the reputation of our entire judiciary.”

“Fulfillment of judicial duties does not come without personal sacrifice of some opportunities and privileges available to the public at large,” the opinion said. “And as a person the public entrusts to decide issues with the utmost fairness, independence, and impartiality, a judge must at times set aside the power of his or her voice.”

The city is expected hire Kwan back after his six month suspension is over.

Kwan will likely return to the bench once his suspension is over, Taylorsville spokeswoman Kim Horiuchi told CNN.

Just another person out there that believes only one side can be power hungry. His entire political party is calling for disregarding laws and allowing people to enter the nation unlawfully. Creating a third class of residents in this country who are not held accountable for their actions. Pulling over an illegal is a true experience. You have no idea who they are, they are completely unverifiable. If they do have ID you don't know if it's real, and you have no real idea who they are. They can be Juan Gomez or they can be Jose Gomez or a number of aliases. Inevitably they end up being released from the traffic stop with no ticket or anything to show they were even stopped. Try doing that as an American citizen. They truly are above the law, unless you catch them in the act of a felony. Then you can arrest on the spot and figure out who they really are through fingerprinting.

Six months later and he'll be back on the bench, and he will be worse because now he'll be more circumspect in what he says but, especially as revenge, he'll rule with even more bias. I'll show them, he'll think, as he twists the law in his court. That'll show them! He should never get to be a judge again.

Exactly. Any Democrat who spews crap about fascism and Reichstag and tyrants and breaking laws and ignoring the constitution and refusing to uphold their oaths of office and all the rest of that crap has apparently never once in their lives looked into a mirror. Those describe today's Democrats perfectly.

Again, exactly. That's precisely the sort of childish vindictiveness that also defines Democrats perfectly.

But according to Judas Roberts, judges aren’t left wing or right wing.

Except Judas himself, who gets to be either left or right, almost randomly, with the goal of “equality”. (His words basically, except my slight flourishing.)
