Is this the action of a fair and unbiased fact-finder?

Is this even normal behavior?

I’ll let you decide.

This happened yesterday, but I didn’t have time to cover it and definitely didn’t want to miss it, so we’re covering it now.

Take a look:

Even CNN is reporting on it and admitting this is quite strange:

Is it normal for a Judge to get triggered by a witness, get into a verbal sparring match with them, and then shout for them to get out of the Courthouse?

Any attorneys out there able to tell me if this is normal behavior you see?

My friends at TheGatewayPundit had these details:

Here is the exchange between Judge Merchan and Robert Costello courtesy of TGP contributor Paul Ingrassia who is inside of the NYC courtroom live reporting:

Merchan grows irate, begins EXCORIATING Robert Costello on the stand for making a few off-handed remarks and rolling his eyes during the testimony.

Merchan: Are you staring me down right now?

Costello: I’m not.


TGP’s Paul Ingrassia said the trial resumed after a delay following a fiery exchange between Judge Merchan and Bob Costello.

“Merchan is absolutely seething over Costello’s damning testimony. The type of treatment Costello, an experienced prosecutor who once worked for the US Attorney’s Office for New York in the 1970s and early 1980s, is receiving on the witness stand from the judge is disgusting,” Paul Ingrassia said.

“Merchan is visibly perturbed, condescending, and downright abusive of the witness on the stand. Outrageous behavior from a judge, and totally inappropriate for any courtroom! No decorum whatsoever!” Ingrassia said.
