Well isn’t this just precious. A federal judge revealing himself to be something of a rabid anti-Semite — at least in email — and John Podesta just nodding in agreement.


Who is George C. Paine II of Nashville, TN? He was, until his retirement, Chief Judge for the US Bankruptcy Court of the Middle District of Tennessee. He is most famous for having been subjected to a disciplinary proceeding because of his membership in a club that excluded blacks and women. Odd are the number of Jewish members approached zero, too.

The amazing thing about this email is that a federal judge felt comfortable sending it at all. And he wouldn’t have sent it unless he knew that Podesta shared his biases… which is obvious from Podesta’s comment.
