    10 Reasons Trump U Case Is a Political Witch-Hunt Against Donald Breaking News at Ne

    10 Reasons Trump U Case Is a Political Witch-Hunt Against Donald

    Donald Trump has gotten a lot of flak, even from members of his own party, for calling into question the class-action lawsuit against Trump University in New York.

    According to CNN, Trump has, in particular, called out U.S. District Court Judge Gonzalo Curiel for having an "inherent conflict of interest," noting that he is the son of immigrants and likely opposes a border wall.

    But it seems the presumptive GOP nominee may have good reasons — lots of them — to be suspicious of the motives of those pushing this case.

    Here are just 10 reasons the case and the players involved in it are politically motivated against Trump.

    1. The politician spearheading the suit is campaigning off it — The New York Post reported on Thursday that "a day after attacking Donald Trump on national TV, state Attorney General Eric Schneiderman moved to score political points off a pending case involving the presumptive GOP presidential nominee." Schneiderman is reported to have sent an email blast to supporters of his re-election campaign saying the "allegations" against Trump University are "clear."

    2. The law firm that brought the suit is a Clinton donor — According to Liberty News Now, Robbins Geller Rudman & Dowd "has paid the Clintons a total of $675,000 in speaking fees over the last eight years. Almost a quarter of a million dollars for a couple of speeches and Hillary just spoke there a year and a half ago for $225,000."

    3. The Robbins law firm donated to Schneiderman — "Eric Schneiderman got a $15,000 campaign contribution in 2010 from two lawyers in a law firm named . . . Robbins Geller Rudman & Dowd LLP. They being one of the firms Judge Curiel would assign to the Trump University class-action cases," Spectator.org reported.

    4. Schneiderman reportedly solicited Trump for campaign donations — As Spectator.org reported in 2013, Trump filed a 150-page response to the lawsuit in New York. The filing stated that Schneiderman's campaign "repeatedly solicited campaign contributions and sought other favors from members of the Trump family and its representatives during the pendency of the two-year investigation."

    5. The second law firm bringing the suit is headed by a Clinton donor — Zeldes Haeggquist & Eck LLP, appointed as additional class counsel to the plaintiffs, is headed by a senior partner who has donated to Barack Obama multiple times, as well as the liberal group MoveOn.org, Spectator.org points out. MoveOn.org was founded in 1998 in defense of Bill Clinton following his impeachment.

    6. Judge Gonzalo Curiel is a member of La Raza — "Curiel is, reportedly, a member of a group called La Raza Lawyers of San Diego," Alberto R. Gonzales, White House counsel and U.S. attorney general in the George W. Bush administration, wrote in the Chicago Tribune.

    7. Judge Gonzalo Curiel is an Obama appointee — U.S. District Judge Gonzalo Curiel was appointed by President Barack Obama, New York magazine reported. Obama has repeatedly lobbed insults at Donald Trump, and it's hard to say Curiel won't be taking any cues from the man who helped get him to the high bench.

    8. Judge Gonzalo Curiel is a Democratic donor — Spectator.org pointed out that Curiel is a campaign contributor to House Democratic Conference Chairman Xavier Becerra. Curiel is likely a down-the-line Democratic supporter and, as such, would have interest in hobbling the presumptive Republican nominee.

    9. Judge Gonzalo Curiel is the son of immigrants — "The future federal judge was born in East Chicago, Indiana, in 1953. His parents, both immigrants from Jalisco, Mexico, were naturalized citizens," CNN reported. As someone whose family benefited from immigration, Curiel is likely in opposition to Trump's plan to get it under control — possibly with a border wall.

    10. These allegations arise many years after students left Trump U — After giving Trump U positive ratings in their exit papers — and being offered a liberal refund policy — Trump U students said nothing for years. That was until Trump became a vocal critic of Barack Obama and then a presidential candidate.

    All of the points are very good, but this one stands out to me to be very significant. I read an article that said 80,000 people attended the free seminars, of those 9,000 signed up for paid classes, and of those 1,000 paid up to $35,000 for mentors and additional types of training. 40% of the 9,000 received refunds, that's 3,600. That leaves 5,400 students who paid for classes over about 5 years of the life of the school which changed from a University because of some accreditation requirement in New York in order to use the term "university", and it was changed to a seminar type program to accommodate that legal requirement.

    Most of the students were happy, felt they had gotten their monies worth, and said so in interviews and in their evaluations of the school. Are some not happy because things didn't work out for them? I'm sure that's the case. I'm required to attend a mandatory continuing education for part of my profession. Do I learn anything? A little bit. Do I complain about it? Sure. Is the school liable to me for my dissatisfaction with both the mandatory requirement, the cost, the time and the lack of benefit? No. Do we fill out survey evaluations? Sure. This is normal adult education, seminar business as usual. There is nothing at all unique, fraudulent or arm-twisting about filling out an evaluation of the courses you take. Every seminar or course does this, every day all over the country.

    If someone filed a class action lawsuit and sent me a letter asking me if I wanted my money back, would I sign on? Probably not, but for those who do, does that make it right to years later decide you were cheated somehow because some big law firm is telling you that? No it doesn't.

    Yes, it is a witch hunt set in place by those who voted for O, bush, rapist bill clinton & now planning to vote for subversive hillary that as "1'st lady" hung a mao ornament on their white house Christmas tree & left the place filthy, rented out the Lincoln room, in preparedness for an unappreciative follower that is worried more @ unappreciative slaves (sold by their own people), building the WH & was their ticket to be here rather than be worried @ famine, disease, ebola in their country today -- it only proves how far the takeover by subversive globalists that follow the money has progressed to date.

    Switch the gears America & EU to preserve our heritages as all should be preserved from anywhere- recognize that it is not what the greedy globalists want to impose but the rightful citizens' desires are paramount. Unfortunately, members of our own political class are at fault. How much has bilderberger's ms lindsey graham been paid to participate?
