Judge Who Presided Over Michael Flynn’s Case and Recused Himself — IS OBAMA APPOINTEE WHO ALSO SITS ON FISA COURT!

On Thursday evening U.S. District Judge Rudolph Contreras recused himself from former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn’s criminal case. Emmet G. Sullivan will now oversee over the trial.

The Gateway Pundit’s Josh Caplan reported on this earlier today.

At this time, no details have been made public as to why Contreras recused himself from the case.

Judge Contreras was appointed by Barack Obama in in 2012 as United States District Judge for the District of Columbia.

Judge Rudolph Contreras was appointed to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISA) court in 2016.

Joe Hoft reported this in March 2017—
Every single judge on the FISA Court as of today was appointed during Obama’s Presidency!

Five of the current eleven judges on the court are scheduled to be on the court for President Trump’s entire first term with six of the judges’ terms expiring before January 2021.  Seven of the judges are scheduled into the year 2020.

Current Chief Justice John Roberts has been in his role since 2005 and therefore he has appointed all the judges to the FISA court.  Judge Roberts is famous for supporting Obamacare in two radical positions, one of which Justice Antonin Scalia, in his withering dissent, refered to as “applesauce”.  Knowing this, it is concerning that Judge Roberts also is responsible for the makeup of the current FISA court.

Contreras suddenly recused himself from former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn’s criminal case today.

So was Judge Contreras also the FISA Judge who signed off on the application to spy on the Donald Trump campaign — including General Flynn?
