As former President Trump was indicted in a Manhattan courtroom on Tuesday, speculation that the judge was already biased against him ran rampant as it was revealed that his daughter has worked for Vice President Kamala Harris as well as a whole list of high-profile Democrats.

Loren Merchan, the 34-year-old daughter of Manhattan Judge Juan Manuel Merchan, worked for Harris’ 2020 presidential campaign as well as other progressive ones according to the Daily Mail.
Trump blasted the judge on Truth Social before his arraignment on Tuesday:
“VERY UNFAIR VENUE, WITH SOME AREAS THAT VOTED 1% REPUBLICAN. THIS CASE SHOULD BE MOVED TO NEARBY STATEN ISLAND – WOULD BE A VERY FAIR AND SECURE LOCATION FOR THE TRIAL. ADDITIONALLY, THE HIGHLY PARTISAN JUDGE & HIS FAMILY ARE WELL KNOWN TRUMP HATERS. HE WAS AN UNFAIR DISASTER ON A PREVIOUS TRUMP RELATED CASE, WOULDN’T RECUSE, GAVE HORRIBLE JURY INSTRUCTIONS, & IMPOSSIBLE TO DEAL WITH DURING THE WITCH HUNT TRIAL. HIS DAUGHTER WORKED FOR “KAMALA” & NOW THE BIDEN-HARRIS CAMPAIGN. KANGAROO COURT!!!”
The judge’s daughter is the president and a partner in Authentic Campaigns, which is a leftist digital firm. She has worked on a number of high-profile Democratic campaigns which include President Biden’s.
It’s understandable how Trump would reach the conclusion that the judge “hates me” given his daughter’s political activism. The former president also asserted that the case is rigged, biased, and part of the politicization and criminalization of the US justice system.
Trump has demanded that his case be moved from Manhattan to a different venue. That request will likely not be granted after he was charged with 34 felony counts of falsifying business records by a leftist grand jury.
The former president said on Tuesday morning that the case should be moved to Staten Island which would provide a “very fair and secure” alternative location.
Loren Merchan worked previously as the director of digital for Harris’ 2020 presidential campaign from February 2019 until December of that year, according to her now-deleted LinkedIn page.

She continued to work for Harris and Biden after the future-vice president ended her failed bid for the presidency. After that, she became the digital director at Authentic Campaigns. After evidently stepping on and over others to climb the corporate ladder, she became a partner in five years at the company as well as the president and COO of Authentic Campaigns.
Clientele of the firm not only includes Harris and Biden, but it also caters to other top-tier Democrats such as California Gov. Gavin Newsom, New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker, House Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries of New York, Arizona Sen. Kyrsten Sinema, California Rep. Adam Schiff, among a number of others.
Judge Merchan previously presided over a tax fraud case involving two corporate entities at the Trump Organization. Although Trump himself was not on trial, a jury found the two Trump entities guilty on all 17 counts, including the falsification of business records and conspiracy. Many believe he should recuse himself from the current case against the former president.
“The entire system is rigged!” Trump’s son, Eric Trump, tweeted Tuesday.
The entire system is rigged!

“Yet another connection in this hand picked democrat show trial,” Donald Trump Jr. tweeted Tuesday. “The BS never ends folks.”
The indictment of Trump is already backfiring on Democrats. According to the Daily Mail, Trump has raised well in excess of $10 million since his indictment. He’s also surging in the polls and the move has ostensibly made him even more popular among American voters.
