We've seen this con played before

Remember when FBI Director James Comey revealed an ongoing investigation of Hillary Clinton just before the election? He violated agency policy because he feared his agency would be considered biased if they didn’t reveal and Hillary won. Turns out, the investigation found nothing illegal and it was dropped, but its revelation twisted the election.

For months, the man who eventually won the presidential contest had been complaining the election was rigged and the FBI was biased, causing Comey to bend over backward to prove it wasn’t. He bent, way too far.

Now Donald Trump is complaining the federal judge who decided a case against him is biased. The Chief Justice of the Supreme Court has come to the judge’s defense, explaining that judges are objective, irrespective of the President appointing them. Is Chief Justice John Roberts now being conned to bend over and overreact to prove no bias in anticipation of a Trump case coming before the Supreme Court?
