Oh, what a beautiful feeling, oh what a beautiful day, I've got a wonderful feeling, everything's going my way.
That's how it feels to be the President of the United States of America, Donald J. Trump right about now (and likely every day).
The “Trump Curse”, as it's commonly known, has apparently chosen its next victim; this time being 9th Circuit Court Judge Alex Kozinski, the infamous Anti-Trump court that tried to defy the President of the United States of America and push their depraved ideology onto the entire nation repeatedly.
Yes, Judge Kozinski is now accused by six, counted, six women of being guilty of sexual misconduct.
According to the women, the Judge subjected them to inappropriate sexual comments or conduct, including asking them to watch pornography in his chambers.
One of the women, Heidi Bond, who was employed as a clerk for the Pasadena, California-based judge from 2006 to 2007, told the Washington Post that she could recall at least three instances in which he asked her to look at pornography, on his computer, asking if she thought it was photoshopped or if it aroused her sexually.
She said that one of the multiple occasions, the images were of college-age students were some were “inexplicably naked while everyone else was clothed.” Another set was a type of digital flipbook that allowed users to mix and match heads, torsos, and legs to create an image of a naked woman.
If the question she was asked was about photoshopped porn, Bond said, she would focus on “minor details of the images”, and avoid conversing sexually.
When Kozinski asked whether the images aroused her sexually, Bond said, she would respond, “No, this kind of stuff doesn’t do anything for me. Is there anything else you need?” She said she recalled at least three occasions when the Judge showed her porn inside of his office.
“I was in a state of emotional shock, and what I really wanted to do was be as small as possible and make as few movements as possible and to say as little as possible to get out,” Bond said.
Emily Murphy, who clerked for Judge Richard Paez at the time of the alleged incidents involving her, said that Kozinski approached her when she was talking with a group of other clerks at a reception at a San Francisco hotel back in September of 2012.
The clerks were discussing their training regimens, and Murphy said she commented that the gym in the 9th Circuit courthouse was nice because it was rarely filled with other people.
Kozinski, according to Murphy and two others present at the time of the alleged incident, said that if that were the case that she was alone, she should work out naked.
The group of clerks were stunned by this blatant sexual harassment, and tried to change the subject, but Murphy and the others present said the Judge continued to point the conversation toward the idea of Murphy exercising naked.
“It wasn’t just clear that he was imagining me naked, he was trying to invite other people, my professional colleagues, to do so as well,” Murphy said. “That was what was humiliating about it.”
Back in 2008 the
LA Times reported that this same Judge had a list of people who he would distribute crude and sexualized jokes to via email.
Apparently, this isn't just some random allegation against Kozinski, who has a long history of being a perverted individual.
There was even a Judicial investigation into alleged misconduct of Kozinski after it became public knowledge he kept a website containing pornographic material on his personal server.
The Judicial investigation eventually determined that Kozinski never intended to allow the public to see any of the materials he had stored and that the Judge and his son were simply “careless in protecting a private server from being accessible on the Internet”, according to the report.
The then Chief Judge, Anthony J. Scirica, of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 3rd Circuit, wrote at the time that Kozinski’s “conduct exhibiting poor judgment with respect to this material created a public controversy that can reasonably be seen as having resulted in embarrassment to the institution of the federal judiciary.”
Scirica’s report also said Kozinski used the server to keep specific images and files that he had received by email, including several TV commercials, video clips, cartoons, games, and song parodies.
As per the sexually explicit files, Kozinski testified at the time “Some I thought were odd or funny or bizarre, but mostly I don’t have a very good reason for holding onto them. I certainly did not send them to anyone else or ask anyone to send me similar files,” according to Scirica’s report.
Kozinski also testified that he “does not visit and has no interest in pornographic websites,” according to Scirica’s report.
Despite this, at the time he apologized for any embarrassment he had caused in” maintaining the email list” and said he had “stopped sending the jokes” to the people on the list.
Bond said the images Kozinski showed her came from his private server, because he pulled them from a site containing the term “kozinski.com.”
Another Kozinski clerk confirmed this but has thus far declined to comment on any specifics.
A separate 9th Circuit clerk said she that was at a dinner in Seattle, seated next to Kozinski when he “kind of picked the tablecloth up so that he could see the bottom half of me, my legs.” She said Kozinski responded, “I wanted to see if you were wearing pants because it’s cold out.”
The former clerk said that she was wearing pants at the time of the incident, which occurred in late 2011 or early 2012 to the best of her memory.
“It made me uncomfortable, and it didn’t seem appropriate,” said the former clerk, who worked for a different Judge.
It's amazing how these Judges, like Kozinski, have repeatedly attempted to subvert the President of the United States of America, as some form of “moral authority”, all while themselves being guilty of terrible atrocities on their own.
The audacity of these individuals, and Kozinski especially, is outright laughable at this point.
The 67-year-old Judge still serves on the court and allegedly has done this to at least one other clerk.
Kozinski, of course, is playing defense, issuing the following statement:
<blockquote>“I have been a Judge for 35 years and during that time have had over 500 employees in my chambers. I treat all of my employees as family and work very closely with most of them. I would never intentionally do anything to offend anyone and it is regrettable that a handful has been offended by something I may have said or done.”</blockquote>
