Deep State Special Legal Counsel

I would cut the judge some slack here. She presided over days of testimony from victims of horrific abuse. The judge is human, after all. It's hard to watch snippets on the evening news---imagine having to sit and listen and see the tears..

I believe the larger issue is judicial independence. If she didn't react or make a strong statement, what would the body politic do or say? Impeach her? Remove her? Look at some judges that are facing strident criticism because of their perceived light sentences of athletes and sexual assault offenders... One judge is facing a potential recall from the bench.
