Beryl Howell is the judge who signed off on Robert Mueller’s request to convene a Washington, D.C. grand jury, and who apparently will continue to “umpire” disputes over the grand jury’s work (which, in reality, is Mueller’s work). As I discussed earlier today, Howell served for ten years as a staffer for Sen. Patrick Leahy, the hyper-partisan leftist.
Item: Judge Howell presided over a trial in which left-wing talk show host Ed Schultz was sued by a sound engineer for breach of an alleged partnership agreement. According to the Daily Caller, Howell showed blatant favoritism for Schultz and contempt for the plaintiff’s lead lawyer.
Item: According to this report from PJ Media, Judge Howell left out the words “so help me God” from a naturalization ceremony. These words are part of the oath prescribed by the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services.
Item: Speaking of immigrants, according to the same PJ Media article, Judge Howell rejected a challenge to Obama’s executive actions that would have provided work permits to undocumented immigrants who met certain requirements. As we all know, the Supreme Court later blocked this blatantly illegal order from taking effect.
Such a judge needs to be a true straight shooter, not a Washington-issue one. Judge Howell does not even come across as the latter kind. She appears to be a doctrinaire liberal, just as one would expect a former Leahy staffer to be.
I live in the Washington, D.C. area. I know plenty of people around here who aren’t nearly as leftist this judge appears to be, but who despise President Trump. There’s a good chance Judge Howell relishes the chance to stick it to him.
