United States District Judge Carlos Murguia has submitted his letter of resignation to President Trump, to take effect April 1, 2020. The delay is to permit him to either close out or transfer his remaining cases in an orderly fashion.
Just days ago, he was relieved of all the pending work place sexual discrimination cases that were on his docket.
My only guess is that a “smoking gun” was uncovered that would have resulted in his impeachment and removal from office. If that was the case, glad that he ended this without tying Congress up in another impeachment trial.
He will NOT receive retirement pay or benefits as he had not attained retirement qualification. His pay and benefits will end completely when he leaves office.
Glad to see him gone.
My two previous threads on this case, the first has the full background of his transgressions.
