“All they want is fairness” said McCloskey's lawyer.

The Missouri Supreme Court intends to uphold a ruling that bars St. Louis Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner from being involved with the case against Mark and Patricia McCloskey.

According to the Washington Examiner, the reasoning for this decision stems from the fact Gardner demonstrated a particular bias in favor of the BLM movement. A fundraising email from Gardner accused both Trump and Governor Mike Parson as "fighting for the two who pointed guns at citizens during the Black Lives Matter protests."

Given the circumstances of the McCloskey’s case being about the fact they defended their home against BLM rioters who showed up on their front doorstep, it’s relevant. The couple were charged on both brandishing weapons and allegations of evidence tampering.

According to local sources it was back in December 2020 when the decision to remove Kim Gardner initially happened. At the time Judge Thomas Clark said the fundraising emails in question had raised “the appearance of impropriety and jeopardize the defendant’s right to a fair trial.”

The appellate argument was over whether or not Ms. Gardner was simply responding to critics, or whether or not she took a particular stake in the public eye. Judge Clark ultimately believes it was the latter in upholding his initial ruling.

The McCloskey couple quickly became iconic figures last year when they stood their ground in front of their Missouri home amidst a summer of US race riots in America that generated billions of dollars in property destruction.

Republican Gov. Mike Parson even offered to pardon the couple over the belief that the state's Castle Doctrine justified their "use of force" display.
