O’Reilly: Trump U Judge Should Recuse Himself, But ‘Not Because He Did Anything Wrong’

billBefore interviewing Donald Trump tonight, Bill O’Reilly leaped to his defense in the Trump University case and the question of whether the judge is biased against Trump.

O’Reilly brought up a report from Mediaite’s sister site LawNewz that the law firm behind the Trump U suit gave money to the Clintons, which he said “makes the legal action look like a political hit job.”

That being said, O’Reilly defended Judge Gonzalo Curiel as “no raging liberal” and praised him for taking on the cartels.

And so, O’Reilly declared he should recuse himself from the case, “not because he did anything wrong––he didn’t––but to eliminate any doubt as to the motivation in court rulings.”
