Jenny Beth Martin, the president of The Tea Party Patriots Action, informed Steve Bannon last week that she was seeking for a creative method to assist President Donald J. Trump with the fraudulent FBI political raid on his Florida family home, which stunned the nation in early August.
Martin went on the War Room show to report to Bannon her group’s activity in attempting to have the magistrate who approved the FBI raid removed from his job, claiming that her request is not all that uncommon in situations with obvious conflicts like Trump’s.
“We have filed a lawsuit against the Magistrate Judge who granted the search warrant for the Mar-a-Lago residence of President Trump. In addition, the complaint describes the problem. Therefore, we believe the court should have compelled him to withdraw himself. Therefore, we are now requesting that the chief judge of the eleventh circuit reprimand Magistrate Judge Reinhardt, and we want him removed from his position.
He commented about President Trump on social media, and he recused himself from a case involving Hillary Clinton in June of this year due to a conflict of interest; he has given to Democrats. In 2016, he contributed to Jeb Bush’s campaign against Donald Trump.
Martin told Bannon, He’s not unbiased, and he should not have been presiding over this; he should have recused himself already.”
Bannon replied to Martin, “I’ve never heard of this, so you’re filing a complaint in a real Court. In a federal court against this magistrate. This is the first I’ve heard of somebody coming from an outside group filing a complaint against a magistrate in another case or a case unrelated to you; you’re not party.”
Martin answered to Bannon, “In 2021, 1282 such complaints were submitted last year.” Against this judge, the most of them do not end up going where we want them to go. Probably due to the fact that the case has been concluded and the judge is no longer engaged. Or because there is insufficient proof.
However, when we submitted the complaint, we detailed our concerns. We included articles and papers that addressed the topics we deemed objectionable. We filed the case in Atlanta in the 11th circuit. And honestly, when my attorneys filed it, they said, “We don’t know; we’ve never done this before, so we don’t know what will happen next.”
Conservative Brief’s Jon Doughtery reported, “In the lengthy complaint filed with the Judicial Council of the 11th Circuit Court, Tea Party Patriots CEO Jenny Beth Martin argued that Reinhart has a vendetta against the former president and therefore should not have been involved in approving the warrant.”

“Judge Reinhart has a conflict of interest and a pattern and history of hostility to President Trump,” said the filing. It went on to include a number of instances where Reinhart attacked Trump on social media as well as documenting his financial donations to critics of the 45th president including Barack Obama and one of Trump’s 2016 GOP challengers, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, according to the Washington Examiner.
“Judge Reinhart should be disciplined and removed as a federal magistrate because of his failure to meet the standards of ethical conduct and character necessary for the public to have confidence in the nonpartisan role of a judge in a matter of this extreme public interest,” says the sixth of seven charges listed in the ethics complaint, the outlet reported, adding: CONTINUE READING…
