Horrifying Connection Judge In Trump Case Has With Him Revealed

During the initial proceedings of the criminal case against Donald Trump, whereby he stands accused of attempting to overturn the 2020 election, U.S. District Court Judge Tanya S. Chutkan consistently cautioned the legal representatives of the former president from introducing political matters within the confines of her courtroom.

“The fact that [Trump is] running a political campaign has to yield to the orderly administration of justice,” Chutkan said during the August 11 hearing. “If that means he can’t say exactly what he wants to say about witnesses in this case, that’s how it has to be.”

Despite cautioning President Trump about his use of “inflammatory” rhetoric, Chutkan has consistently delivered judgements with political undertones and expressed provocative remarks throughout her oversight of approximately 30 cases involving individuals who supported Trump and were charged in relation to the January 6, 2021, disturbance at the United States Capitol, Real Clear Investigations revealed.

An examination of extensive hearing transcripts indicates that Chutkan has consistently articulated firm and established viewpoints regarding the fundamental matters pertaining to United States v. Donald Trump, the ongoing criminal case within her jurisdiction.

The aforementioned statements made by her pertain to her public affirmations regarding the integrity of the 2020 election, her belief that the January 6 protests were staged by former President Trump, and her argument that the aforementioned president is culpable for criminal offenses. The individual in question has characterized the events on January 6th as a “mob attack” that targeted the fundamental principles upon which our democratic system is built. Furthermore, she has labeled the central matter under consideration in the case she presides over, namely, former President Trump’s assertion that the 2020 election was unlawfully taken from him, as a conspiracy theory.

Despite the common occurrence of judges making remarks from the bench, Chutkan’s use of strong language raises concerns over her ability to remain impartial while presiding over the case involving the expected GOP nominee for the 2024 presidential election.

According to the United States code pertaining to recusal, it is stipulated that any justice, judge, or magistrate judge of the United States is required to disqualify themselves in any legal case if there is a reasonable possibility that their impartiality may be called into question. One compelling rationale for recusal is when the judge has exhibited “a subjective inclination or preconceived notion regarding a party.”

Representative Matthew Gaetz, a member of the Republican Party, from the state of Florida, has just submitted a resolution with the intention of denouncing and formally reprimanding Judge Chutkan for demonstrating “evident prejudice and favoritism in the execution of her official responsibilities as a judge.”

However, it’s a difficult legal challenge if Trump supporters’ goal is to have a new judge assigned to the case. A judge may be removed from office for bias or the appearance of bias, according to Stephen Gillers, a law professor at New York University, “only when the purported bias comes from a source outside the judge’s work as a judge.” He stated, “Almost never will a judge be recused for opinions she forms as a judge – in hearing cases and motions. Judges are expected to form opinions based on these ’intrajudicial’ sources. It’s what judges do.”

Regarding Judge Chutkan’s alleged bias, a Trump spokesman declined to comment. Requests for response from the president of the American Bar Association and the top judge of the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia were unanswered. Not Chutkan either.

Chutkan was one of the strictest judges on Jan. 6 defendants after being appointed by Barack Obama to the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia in 2013. She has frequently sentenced offenders to more time behind bars than what the prosecution had recommended. She sentenced defendants to jail time in at least two cases when prosecutors just asked for probation. Chutkan said that she is “one of the few judges that’s given a lot of terms of incarceration” in Jan. 6 cases during a court hearing in July 2022.

Chutkan made at least one public suggestion in court that Trump ought to have faced criminal charges for his alleged involvement in what she frequently refers to as “an attempt to overthrow the government” on January 6.

Chutkan appeared to bemoan the absence of Trump from prison before to giving Ohio resident Christine Priola, a Trump supporter who pleaded guilty to obstruction of an official process, a 15-month prison sentence. “[The] people who mobbed that Capitol were there in fealty, in loyalty, to one man – not to the Constitution, of which most of the people who come before me seem woefully ignorant, not to the ideals of this country, and not to the principles of democracy,” Chutkan remarked on October 28, 2022. “It’s a blind loyalty to one person who, by the way, remains free to this day.”
