George Soros sponsored St. Louis Circuit Attorney Kimberly Gardner is laying her career on the line for her patrons’ agenda. Gardner has appealed a judge’s recent decision to dismiss her and her office from prosecution of the controversial case against Mark and Patricia McCloskey.
The Example Soros Wants Made
The McCloskey’s were infamously over-prosecuted with “gun-crimes” after brandishing weapons at a threatening BLM led mob who were trespassing on their gated community. The McCloskeys maintained at the time that they feared for their lives.
According to KSDK-TV.
In a statement announcing the charges, Gardner said the McCloskeys waved their weapons in a “threatening manner” at “peaceful, unarmed protesters,” KSDK reported.
“It is illegal to wave weapons in a threatening manner at those participating in a nonviolent protest, and while we are fortunate this situation did not escalate into deadly force, this type of conduct is unacceptable in St. Louis,” she wrote, according to KSDK.
Fox6 however reported the McCloskey’s side of the argument, “Al Watkins, an attorney for Mark McCloskey, 63, and his 61-year-old wife, Patricia, said the protest was largely peaceful and the pair did not bring their guns outside of the home until two men in particular, both of whom were white, started menacing them.”
Gardner Dismissed for “appearance of impropriety”
McCloskey’s current Attorney Joel Schwartz filed to have the Soros backed St. Louis Attorney Kimberly Gardner removed in June after she sent out a series of political fundraising emails both before and after charges against the McCloskey’s were charged, Judge Thomas Clark II subsequently bumped her off the case on Dec. 10.
“This court does not seek to ‘interfere with the democratic process’ but strongly believes the present ‘circumstances’ justify disqualification,” Clark continued. “Deference to precedent, acknowledging the will of the voters, and respecting separation of powers are all vital to a representative government, an equitable criminal justice system and the rule of law. Likewise, campaigning without tainting the right to a fair trial is equally compelling and constitutionally sacred.”
“After considering the arguments of counsel, the pleadings coupled with the attachments, the applicable case law and the relevant statute, the court finds the emails raise an appearance of impropriety and warrant disqualification,” he continued.
“In short, the Circuit Attorney’s conduct raises the appearance that she initiated a criminal prosecution for political purposes. Immediately before and after charging Defendant, she solicited campaign donations to advance her personal interests.”
In other words, an ambitious prosecutor seeking to score points in an election pandered to special interests (like George Soros who really did bankroll her) by over-zealously prosecuting two citizens for defending their home. It really seems quite despicable, doesn’t it? Get this, in the ultimate expression of projecting your own crimes on another, Gardner has accused the McCloskeys of turning their case into “Political Theater”, this coming from the Attorney who put on a public spectacle to garner support from her rich patrons… little different from a pillory in the town square.
A History of Fighting for Soros’ BLM & Antifa Causes
Gardner is well known for shamelessly advancing the Soros/Antifa/BLM cause by refusing to press charges against violent rioters in June against the strong objections of State Attorney General Eric Schmitt who called her response “Shocking”. She flippantly responded “While the AG continues to fuel the division in the community at a time of great pain, suffering and racial divide. My response to the AG ‘I got work to do’.”
Kim Gardner argues in her bid to stay in the McCloskey case “Their argument of an “appearance of impropriety” falls flat” , but the Code of Conduct for United States Judges seems to disagree when it says “A Judge Should Avoid Impropriety and the Appearance of Impropriety in all Activities”. Shouldn’t the prosecutor be held to the same standard? Clearly counselor, you don’t got this work to do.
