Rep Steve Chabot (R-OH) to Trump on Curiel: 'Settle the damn case'

A Republican Congressman from Ohio penned an open letter to Donald Trump about the Trump University lawsuit telling him: "Settle the damn case, and apologize to the judge."
Rep. Steve Chabot, who chairs the House Small Business Committee, wrote the letter on his blog. Chabot said Trump University sounded like a "get-rich-quick" deal and, as a "recovering lawyer," suggested Trump settle.
"Your latest faux pas is a real doozy," Chabot wrote in his letter to the presumptive Republican presidential nominee.
"You’ve accused the federal judge who’s handling the Trump U case, of “having an inherent conflict of interest”, merely because “he is of Mexican heritage.” I know you want to build a wall and all (so do I), but the guy was born in Indiana. In this country, we’ve never held where an American citizen was born, or where their parents or their grandparents were born, against them. And we shouldn’t start now.
Besides, you should have settled this case long ago. As you know, it stems from your involvement in, what seems to me, one of those get-rich-quick deals – this one promising folks that they could learn the secrets of your success in real estate, for the rock bottom price of only $1,500 (to $35,000 for the Gold Elite program.) Lawsuits have been filed against you in New York and California. It’s not clear that legally you’ve done anything wrong, but it looks, well it looks terrible. And as a recovering lawyer myself, let me give you some free legal advice – settle the damn case, and apologize to the judge."
