Attorneys representing President Trump asked that a judge appointed by former President Clinton recuse himself from Trump’s recent lawsuit accusing Hillary Clinton of being part of a conspiracy claiming his 2016 campaign was colluding with Russia. In a motion filed Monday, Trump attorneys Alina Habba and Peter Ticktin argued that U.S. District Judge Donald Middlebrooks is biased because President Clinton tapped him for the court in 1997.

“There is no question that Judge’s Middlebrooks’ impartiality would be questioned by a disinterested observer, fully informed of the facts, due to Judge’s relationship with the Defendant, either, individually, or by the very nature of his appointment to the Federal Bench, by the Defendant’s husband,” their motion said.

“The most important issue is not simply that justice must be done, but also that justice must appear to be done. This could not be more important in a case like the above styled cause, where wrongs in regard to a presidential election are to be redressed,” it added.
