Nightmare is brewing as Trump is assigned a judge in the most recent case against him

Former President Donald Trump appears to be in for a rough 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, as The Western Journal reported.

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.

The Trump case has been assigned to U.S. District Judge Tanya S. Chutkin, who AP News describes as "the toughest punisher" of J6 cases, jailing all defendants in every case.

When it comes to "justice" in D.C., this seems par for the course.

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.

She is the judge who compelled Trump to turn over his records to the J6 committee.

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.

According to Smith, the 45th president knew his allegations of fraud were false when he made them.

“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.

Earlier Tuesday, Trump pushed back against the possibility of being indicted again by the special counsel’s office writing on Truth Social, “I hear that Deranged Jack Smith, in order to interfere with the Presidential Election of 2024, will be putting out yet another Fake Indictment of your favorite President, me, at 5:00 P.M.

“Why didn’t they do this 2.5 years ago? Why did they wait so long? Because they wanted to put it right in the middle of my campaign. Prosecutorial Misconduct!”

He added in another post, “Also, why are they putting out another Fake Indictment the day after the Crooked Joe Biden SCANDAL, one of the biggest in American history, broke out in the Halls of Congress??? A Nation In Decline!”
