    IMO, a more important question is whether RGB should recuse herself from any case in which Trump‘s motives are a factor. Recall what she said about him last year: "He is a faker."

The press seems to be very gentle with him on that." "I can‘t imagine what this place would be -- I can‘t imagine what the country would be -- with Donald Trump as our president." Who thinks she would give him a fair shake?
