WOW: Judge Presiding Over Trump’s January 6 Indictment Makes INSANE Statement
U.S. District Judge Tanya S. Chutkan, who is overseeing Trump's indictment from January 6, has reportedly drawn comparisons between the Capitol riots and the 9/11 terrorist attacks as well as the Boston Marathon bombing. These comparisons emerged during a courtroom session where she questioned the necessity of a lengthy trial delay for a defendant charged with participating in the January 6 events.
These remarks were relayed by journalist Julie Kelly, who has been covering the trials of those implicated in the January 6 riot through her Substack publication, "Declassified with Julie Kelly."
Judge Chutkan highlighted that the trial for the January 6 defendant would commence "three years, one month, and 27 days" after the events of January 6, 2021. She juxtaposed this timeline with the commencement of other high-profile trials: "The trial concerning the Boston Marathon bombing initiated less than two years after the events. The trial involving Zacarias Moussaoui for his role in the September 11 attacks was set to begin one year after the attacks; however, due to continuances, appeals, and extensive discovery, it began roughly four years later."
While the January 6 riot undoubtedly left its mark on American history, equating it to events that resulted in the loss of nearly 3,000 lives and catalyzed a worldwide war on terror is viewed by many as an inappropriate analogy.
When a judge makes a comparison that numerous people perceive as a stretch, it raises concerns about impartiality and the potential for bias. The judicial system's role is to apply the law justly and without partiality.
Recently, Chutkan established the trial date for Trump's alleged interference in the 2020 presidential election as March 4, 2024. This timing positions the trial squarely within the GOP presidential primary calendar.
The trial's schedule, coinciding with the heart of the primary season, is expected to draw continued intense political attention from Republicans. Notably, the trial's commencement falls just a day before a pivotal event in the Republican nomination process: Super Tuesday.
Judge Chutkan's ruling follows Special Counsel Jack Smith's investigation into Trump's potential involvement in the January 6, 2021 Capitol riot and alleged meddling in the 2020 election outcome. On August 1, Trump faced four federal indictments stemming from Smith's January 6 inquiry.
These charges encompass conspiring to defraud the United States, plotting to obstruct an official proceeding, obstructing and attempting to obstruct an official process, and conspiracy against rights. Trump vehemently denied all allegations, asserting his innocence.
Initially, Trump's defense team proposed a trial start date in April 2026, well after the results of the 2024 presidential election would be determined. Nevertheless, Judge Chutkan firmly rejected this request, stating, "I can tell you right now you are not getting two years. This case is not going to trial in 2026."
"I don't doubt for a minute that you have been working diligently, but you and I have a very different estimate of what time is needed to prepare for this case," Chutkan remarked.
"Discovery in 2023 is not sitting with boxes in a warehouse... We both know the first cut is reviewed by electronic searches," Chutkan continued, underscoring that "no one's sitting there going page by page."
