Judge Chutkan’s ties to Obama and her controversial decisions in the Trump case raise questions about the latest indictment’s basis for discerning his beliefs.

Judge Chutkan’s Association with Obama

  • The U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia’s Judge Tanya S. Chutkan, currently presiding over the January 6 case involving former President Donald Trump, was first nominated to her position by ex-President Barack Obama in 2014.

Chutkan’s Contributions to Obama’s Election Campaign

  • Open Secrets data reveals financial support from Chutkan towards Obama’s election campaigns in 2008 and 2012.
  • The donations to “Obama for America” totaled $1,500, made in three separate transactions during 2008 and 2009.

Judge Chutkan’s Decision on White House Records Access

  • In November 2021, Chutkan ruled against Trump’s endeavor to prevent the House select committee, which was investigating the January 6 events, from acquiring over 700 pages of his White House records, such as call and video logs and schedules.
  • The judge stated, “Presidents are not kings, and plaintiff is not president,” signifying her judgment against Trump’s attempt to conceal these documents.

Judge Chutkan’s Stance on January 6 Defendants

  • Chutkan has controversially imposed longer sentences for those involved in the January 6 incidents than the ones suggested by the government, indicating she will not be unbiased when dealing with President Trump.
  • Many of the Jan. 6 defendants were peaceful protestors but were still hit with unfair sentences by Chutkan.

Latest Indictment of Former President Trump

  • The special prosecutor Jack Smith reported the third indictment of Trump this week, relating to the January 6 charges.
  • The indictment includes four charges: Conspiracy to defraud the U.S.; Conspiracy to obstruct an official proceeding; Obstruction and attempted obstruction of an official proceeding; Conspiracy against rights.
    • It remains unclear how prosecutors discerned Trump’s personal beliefs apart from being informed by others that his fraud suspicions were baseless.
