Judge blasts Justice Department for unfair treatment of January 6th protestors

Democrats have been trying to milk the January 6 incident at the Capitol for all it’s worth. Unfortunately, that has translated to unfair and outsized punishments for those involved.

Judge Trevor McFadden slammed the Justice Department for going tougher on the January 6th protestors, Breitbart reported. McFadden, who was appointed by former President Donald Trump, has been hearing some of the cases and speaking out.

“I think the U.S. attorney would have more credibility if it was even-handed in its concern about riots and mobs in this city,” McFadden said. He made this remark during the sentencing of Danielle Doyle, who was just one of many protestors who entered the Capitol building.

Since the incident, 300 people have pleaded guilty to charges related to rioting, with most carrying sentences of a year or less for their offenses. However, another 100 are still awaiting trial as far into the future as 2023. There have been a total of 800 charged for the Capitol riot.

Meanwhile, the 2020 riots following the death of George Floyd haven’t received as much attention despite their destructiveness. According to Axios, those riots cost insurance companies more than $1 billion.

“It does feel like the government has had two standards here, and I can’t abide by that,” McFadden said, according to the Washington Post. He went on to say that he couldn’t recall another time when first offenders with nonviolent charges were “sentenced to serious jail time … regardless of their race, gender or political affiliation.”

McFadden contrasted a January 6 protestor Jenny Cudd, a 37-year-old florist, with Code Pink’s Tighe Barry. “The government’s sentencing recommendation here is just so disproportionate to other sentences for people who have engaged in similar conduct,” the judge noted as repeat offender Barry got 10 days while first-time offender Cudd got 75 days and one-year probation.

The people who breached the Capitol did so unlawfully. However, they don’t deserve stiffer punishments simply because it was done in Trump’s name — and that seems to be the only difference.

I just hope the next president will nullify all these chargers and clean up all their records to where records are clean and charge the DA and justice dept. with corruption for the way they have handled the whole mess
