A former public defender in Washington, D.C., U.S. District Court Judge Tanya S. Chutkan
argues that Jan. 6 is among the worst crime scenes she’s ever witnessed. Many observers believe Trump already confronts a nearly insurmountable task in receiving a fair trial in the nation’s capital, a city that voted 92% for Joe Biden. Further, the Justice Department has a near-perfect conviction rate in Jan. 6 trials. Chutkan’s extensive record of comments suggest the judge presiding over his case will not make it any easier.
