Obama-Appointed Judge is Giving Jan. 6 Defendants Harsher Sentences Than Necessary

Reuters Twitter

A U.S. District Judge appointed by former President Obama is doling out harsher sentences to January 6th protestors that trespassed inside the Capitol building. U.S. District Judge Tanya Chutkan has already sentenced multiple pro-Trump protestors to more prison time than what was originally being sought by the prosecution.

The Daily Wire reports:

Earlier this week, Judge Chutkan sentenced two cousins, Robert Bauer and Edward Hemenway, to 45 days for trespassing and taking selfies in the Capitol on January 6. The prosecution was seeking up to 30 days in prison.

The report added that Chutkan sentenced Dona Sue Bissey, a 52-year-old from Indiana, to two weeks of incarceration on Tuesday, though the prosecution recommended the defendant serve probation, “citing her early acceptance of responsibility and cooperation with law enforcement,” Reuters said.

Judge Chutkan, who has the discretion to impose harsher punishments, also sentenced Matthew Mazzocco to 45 days in prison for a misdemeanor offense related to the breach. At the time, the “court hearing marked the first time that one of the judges overseeing the hundreds of Jan. 6 prosecutions imposed a sentence that was harsher than what the government asked for,” the report highlighted.

“There have to be consequences for participating in an attempted violent overthrow of the government, beyond sitting at home,” Chutkan said at a defendant’s hearings.

So far about 600 individuals have been arrested and charged with crimes related to the Capitol riot.

Apparently, this judge doesn’t give a sh*t about sentences for the riots in Kenosha, Seattle, Portland and a hundred others. There’s a side of me that would get even but that’s not how conservatives respond to abuse.

It’s just another Obama appointee to go along with cheating the system to get Biden elected to serve his 3rd term.

How can the proprietors of an entire area and everything in it as well as the employers of all working there be prosecuted for entering what is essentially their property to express their concerns to their employees one cannot help but wonder ??

Does this surprise anyone? Like his other far left haters he populated our courts with, she is a radical aiming her vile on those who dare confront our government as a 1st Amendment r right to protest government largesse. Meanwhile, she and his other appointees stay silent when those truly trying to overthrow our government burn down and occupy whole city blocks including federal government buildings. This is the consequence when so many blindly vote for party rarher than policy and competency.

Yes it has, remember how the Constitution slated a person ” is innocent until proven guilty,” but for the past 50 years ( or more ) Democratic Party Judges have changed that to be ” Guilty until you prove your innocent “

Where is the trials for the thousands of people that invaded federal courthouse in Minnesota, Washington, and California, there has not been a single person involved in their attempt to set up their own government and commit multiple crimes including murder just like the so called police officer that killed Babbitt in DC.
