Trump Indictment Update – This Is Not Good News

Published on

Former President Donald Trump appears to be in for a difficult journey in federal court after being indicted on Tuesday by the Justice Department for questioning the 2020 election’s legitimacy.

The case has been assigned to the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia judge Tanya Chutkan, who was appointed by former President Barack Obama in 2014.

The Associated Press referred to her as the “toughest punisher” of the Capitol incursion defendants on January 6, 2021.

According to NBC News, Chutkan is unique among federal justices for imposing longer prison terms on Jan. 6 defendants than the government requested.

Chutkan previously ruled against Trump in November 2021, compelling him to turn over allegedly privileged presidential records to the House committee on January 6.

“Presidents are not kings, and Plaintiff is not President. He retains the right to assert that his records are privileged, but the incumbent President ‘is not constitutionally obliged to honor’ that assertion,” she held.

In the most recent DOJ indictment, Trump is charged with four counts: conspiracy to defraud the United States, conspiracy to obstruct an official proceeding, obstruction and attempt to obstruct an official proceeding, and conspiracy against rights.

Trump created “widespread mistrust” in his attempt to “overturn the legitimate results of the 2020 election,” according to the indictment of special counsel Jack Smith.

The 45th president knew that his allegations of fraud were false when he made them, Smith alleged.

“Each of these conspiracies — which built on the widespread mistrust the defendant was creating through pervasive and destabilizing lies about election fraud — targeted a bedrock function of the United States federal government: the nation’s process of collecting, counting and certifying the results of the presidential election,” the indictment says.
