A federal judge on Friday declined to force the recusal of a fellow Joe Biden-appointed colleague in Hunter Biden’s “hacking” lawsuit against a former policy analyst in the Trump White House, writing that the effort failed just like the former president failed to remove a Clinton appointee from the never successful Trump v. Clinton RICO case.

U.S. District Judge Hernan Vera was the target of Garrett Ziegler’s recusal motion, which reasoned that Vera’s status as a 2023 appointee of President Joe Biden appointee, coupled with a donation to the president’s 2020 election campaign and the political “subject matter of the litigation,” raised reasonable questions about whether he could be impartial. But Vera was not the one who rendered a decision on recusal. The motion was referred to U.S. District Judge Monica Ramirez Almadani for a ruling, and she agreed with Hunter Biden’s lawyers that former President Donald Trump’s unsuccessful Trump v. Clinton RICO suit recusal bids were “instructive.”
