Federal Judge Reprimands Capitol Riot Prosecutors Over Leaks To Media

(TeaParty.org Exclusive) – The left has been doing everything in their power to demonize Trump supporters since the Jan. 6 Capitol riot incident. Of course, we all know that what happened on Jan. 6 was not a representation of the 75+ million Americans who support President Trump but it was a perfectly timed gift for Democrats and the crooked mainstream media.

Trump and his supporters have been vocal about their support for law enforcement and law and order. What happened on Jan. 6 was a culmination of frustrations over the corruption, lies and deceit that have taken over the people’s government.

Not to mention the fact that left-wing organizations like Antifa were, without a doubt, also involved in the Capitol riot. Nonetheless, the fact remains that it was an isolated incident and nothing in comparison to the deadly and violent leftist riots that have been plaguing US cities for the last year.

The mainstream media and crooked leftist prosecutors have been doing everything they can to ensure Trump supporters are found guilty in the court of public opinion before they even have a chance to stand a fair trial in a court of law.

One federal judge, however, is not amused with these antics. On Tuesday, District Judge Amit Mehta held a hearing for the sole purpose of reprimanding the prosecutors involved in the cases related to the storming of the Capitol because of several inappropriate news leaks.

“No matter how much press attention this matter gets, let me be clear these defendants are entitled to a fair trial, not one that was conducted in the media,” he said, according to the Hill.

Of the issues the judge was upset over were a former acting US attorney for DC giving an interview with “60 Minutes” and the New York Times reporting that more severe charges were being considered, citing anonymous sources of course.

The judge is set to preside over 10 cases against members of the Oath Keepers organization who face a variety of charges such as conspiracy and obstruction for their roles in the Capitol riot.

The “60 Minutes” interview was with Michael Sherwin who had been overseeing the prosecutions until recently. Sherwin told “60 Minutes” that he believed prosecutors had the evidence needed to pursue sedition charges.

Judge Mehta warned prosecutors that such statements “jeopardize the integrity of a criminal case and affect the rights of a criminal defendant.”

“Let me just say at the outset that I am surprised, I’m being restrained in my use of terminology, to say the least, to see Mr. Sherwin sitting for an interview about a pending case in an ongoing criminal investigation,” the judge said.

He went on to say that it wasn’t for him to say whether or not Sherwin’s interview violated justice policy but that he hopes the Department of Justice is looking into the matter.

Rest assured, they aren’t.

He also said that he found it “troubling” that the New York Times was reporting on anonymous sources from within the DOJ and had been “detailing the possibility of additional charges in pending criminal cases and an ongoing criminal investigation.”

According to a spokesman for the criminal division of the US Attorney’s office in Washington, both media disclosures were being reviewed by the department’s Office of Professional Responsibility.

It’s good to see there are still professionals with the judicial system who still have integrity.

  1. Of all the people in the riot of January 6, 2021, Trump would be the last one involved in any such riot. Antifa and BLM were texted to tell them to go to the Capitol and dress like Trump voters, wearing red hats, etc. The democrats knew this was going to happen and another reason to blame on Trump. Trump wanted the election results to happen and contested, he knew that over 100 House and some Senators were doing that, why on earth should he have any blame on what happened. He always wanted peaceful rallies, MAKES NO SENSE. TRUMP VOTERS WERE TIRED OF ALL THE DESCRUCTION OF ALL THE CITIES AND TRUMP WAS THE ONLY ONE THAT CALLED THE CITIES AND OFFERED THE NATIONAL GUARD. IF THE CITIES WOULD HAVE DONE WHAT TRUMP DID REGARDING TEARING DOWN STATUES (10 YEARS IN JAIL) THERE WOULD NOT HAVE BEEN ANY RIOTS ON JANUARY 6, 2021.

  2. People in the liberal democrat party is a different breed of soulless animals that stay together in a herd like and groupthink think environment. The party is the party of hypocrisy beyond ones comprehension. They will break and change every rule for their advantage and they also, play the race cards every opportunity they get, when if you look at them and their rhetorics use can see that they are power grabbers, racist and fear mongers. They used black voters and they keep black voters in their new slavery domain. They don’t want us to think for ourselves or be productive human being, but to depend on government handouts.

    Black and a free thinker, you are a sell out according to demrats if you are a conservative they have a false sense of security that they owned black voters and other minorities group votes.

    I am glad that these legal radical prosecutors are being called out, it’s full time we get some credibility back into the justice system. We are a long way off but it’s great to see at least one judge has a conscience and is not afraid to speak about it. Buckle up the road ahead is looking very bumpy.

  3. I have a suggestion, Since Mr. Biden is so good hearted about ILLEGALS entering THE US, why doesn’t Mr, Biden move them all into THE WHITEHOUSE with him. there is plenty of rooms for the illegals to roam, the Whitehouse can serve them, house them, and seeing how Mr. Biden is so quick to give out the covid shots, the illegals would be in a perfect place.

  4. “It’s good to see there are still professionals with the judicial system who still have integrity.” I laughed at this. Don’t speak until they have proven they have integrity. Actions over rhetoric.

  5. This morning the Mornings on the Mall’s reporters in Texas were reporting live as hundreds of groups of hundreds of illegal alien migrants were crossing the border and looking for border patrol officers to turn themselves in. The reporter described people who were coughing and obviously ill being put on school buses and taken into cities in Texas and “dumped” into communities.

    This is the policy of the Biden administration at work. No medical screening, no treatment for obvious illness, No providing of court date. No accountability.

    This is the actions of the democratic party who wants to violate, once again, the Constitution and the immigration laws for their power control along with the requirement of the Constitution that the States are to manage their elections. This democratic party who are releasing hundreds of covid-19 active cases into our communities wants us to believe that they are federalizing elections for our protection?

    The democratic voter fraud that was observed and recorded on film as well as on internet records did and will continue to silence the legal voter.

    • Similar to obamaGate John , Comey and the left’s hero Hussein Obama will never suffer legally from the many leaks and crimes they’ve committed.

  6. What happened on January is clear to any one with a brain. The biden army of BLM and Antifa interrupted the congress just when VP Pence was going to open the letters of the states that wanted 10 more days because of the voter fraud that was openly evident.

    • Which means that someone was on the inside signaling BLM to break in at the time Pence was beginning to address the corruption in Arizona and their letter asking for the Constitutional 10 days to investigate.
