Florida federal magistrate judge Bruce Reinhart, the Jeffrey Epstein-linked judge who signed off on the raid of Trump's Mar-a-Lago home, is a victim of anti-Semitism according to Politico.
The Miami Herald reported in 2019 that Reinhart went from prosecuting Jeffrey Epstein with kid gloves to representing his accused accomplices in one year and helped them "receive federal immunity for allegedly trafficking underage girls."
As The Daily Mail reported:
Reinhart was made a magistrate judge four years ago after spending 10 years in the private sector where he worked with Epstein's staff.
He helped the billionaire pedophile's pilots Larry Visoski, David Rodgers, Larry Morrison and Bill Hammond.
He also worked with scheduler Sarah Kellen and Nadia Marcinkova, who was known as his 'Yugoslavian sex slave'.
On New Year's Day 2008 he left his job at the South Florida US Attorney's Office and went to work with the employees the next day.
Just as Attorney General Merrick Garland and FBI Director Chris Wray responded to backlash over their raid by playing the victim, Politico is helping Reinhart play the victim as well.
From Politico, "Florida judge who approved FBI search of Mar-a-Lago faces barrage of antisemitic online attacks":
The Florida federal magistrate judge who approved the FBI search of former President Donald Trump’s Palm Beach County residence has faced an onslaught of antisemitic attacks and threats online, some of which targeted the synagogue he belongs to.
Magistrate judge Bruce Reinhart, a board member at Temple Beth David in Palm Beach Gardens, has seen sustained antisemitic attacks on right wing message boards and other social media platforms like 4Chan since his name surfaced as the judge who signed off on the FBI’s warrant to search Mar-a-Lago.
Republicans, too, have been heavily critical of the judge, including Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), who questioned Reinhart’s impartiality during an appearance on Fox News earlier this week when he claimed: “They found some Obama donor judge, not even a judge, a magistrate, to give them the search warrant.”
Sorry folks, Reinhart is above criticism.
Aryeh Tuchman, a senior associate director for the Anti-Defamation League’s Center for Extremism, said his organization is “monitoring the increased level of threat language generally, and also towards the specific judge.”
“I think it’s fair to say certainly where the judge is concerned, reports of vitriol directed at him and the synagogue have increased,” he said.
Tuchman said that the synagogue Reinhart belongs to has additional security in place and Temple Beth David had to cancel an outdoor service due to concerns of violence. Officials with the synagogue did not return a request seeking comment.
[...] Few, however, have made public statements about threats made toward Reinhardt, even as conservatives on various social media sites and message boards have directly attacked him over being Jewish and over the fact that in 2009 he served as a defense attorney representing employees of convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein.
[...] “Right wingers are weaponizing the synagogue affiliation of a judge who was doing his job,” said Jeffrey Salkin, a rabbi and columnist for Religion News Service. “They are slurring the social justice commitments of contemporary Judaism. Their bigotry is appalling, and I would welcome the protests of the Republican Jewish Coalition.”
If you think it's strange that the judge who signed off on the raid of Mar-a-Lago went from prosecuting Epstein with kid gloves to representing his associates and helping them secure immunity from prosecution you're just an evil hater.
He was just "doing his job."
