Trump Judge Harshest Sentences in January 6 Cases

With every passing day, it seems that we find out that the deck against Donald Trump is getting stacked more than we ever thought possible.

The latest comes in the judge assigned to one of the Donald Trump legal cases.

As luck would have it, Trump has drawn a judge that worked with Hunter Biden at a private law firm.

Oh, and by the way, she has a reputation for over-sentencing people that come before her bench.


U.S. District Judge Tanya Chutkan is an Obama-appointed judge who worked as an assistant public defender. She also worked for a private law firm where Hunter Biden worked as a lobbyist for about five years.

As if that was not bad enough, this judge had a history of dropping the hammer on January 6 protesters, reported Politico.

In fact, when AP did a profile on her, they found out that even when prosecutors were not recommending stiff sentences, she unloaded on them anyway.

This is the same judge that ruled in the National Archives case regarding the classified documents, stating, “Presidents are not kings, and Plaintiff is not President.”

A total of 38 January 6 rioters have come before her bench, and every one of them was sent to jail.

Generally speaking, judges are a bit more lenient than the recommended sentences of prosecutors. Chutkan prefers to go the other way, often turning heads with her aggressive sentences.

In one sentencing, she stated, “It has to be made clear that trying to violently overthrow the government, trying to stop the peaceful transition of power and assaulting law enforcement officers in that effort is going to be met with absolutely certain punishment.”

Compare that to how she characterized the George Floyd rioting, stating, “People gathered all over the country last year to protest the violent murder by the police of an unarmed man. Some of those protesters became violent.

“But to compare the actions of people protesting, mostly peacefully, for civil rights, to those of a violent mob seeking to overthrow the lawfully elected government is a false equivalency and ignores a very real danger that the Jan. 6 riot posed to the foundation of our democracy.”

Mostly peaceful? Our city streets were set on fire every night for months, and billions of dollars in damage was done around the country.

I believe it would be pretty easy to make the argument that the George Floyd riots were mostly violent.
