GOP Senator Ted Cruz warned Thursday that “there is a very real possibility that Donald Trump ends up being convicted,” this time because the judge and eventual jury in the latest indictment will all be “far-left” individuals who are blinded by their “hate” for Trump.
“The likelihood that a D.C. jury will vote to convict Donald Trump is exceptionally high and the facts don’t matter, the laws don’t matter: They hate him,” Cruz stated, explaining “That’s a big part of the reason why the Biden DOJ wants to bring this case in D.C. Which means, with a far-left judge and a far-left jury, there is a very real possibility that Donald Trump ends up being convicted.”
Cruz noted that the Obama appointed federal judge in the case, Tanya Chutkan, has a history with Trump and has handed down longer sentences for January 6 defendants than the government requested.
Declaring that the U.S. has now “entered banana republic territory,” Cruz added that Chutkan will be “relentlessly hostile” towards Trump, will “bend over backwards” for Biden’s DOJ, with both wanting to ensure the trial happens “after he’s nominated but before the general election”.
“If it goes to trial, you will have a jury that is drawn from the District of Columbia. The District of Columbia is the jurisdiction in the United States that is the most Democrat of any jurisdiction in the country,” Cruz further warned.
U.S. District Judge Tanya Chutkan, who will handle the case, was an Obama appointee in 2014 and contributed roughly $4,300 to his presidential campaign and victory fund combined between 2008 and 2012.
