Perhaps only the more engaged right-leaning voters will even see this story, and it’s not one of those “pocketbook” issues, but it’s concerning because it adds a couple more notches to the belt of our corrupt “justice” system as it continues overseeing its own power.  The first one has to do with the wrongful death lawsuit filed by the family of Ashli Babbitt, the collateral damage from January 6.

The suit filed in the Babbitts’ home jurisdiction of Southern California has been moved at the request of the DOJ to Washington, DC, the city in which she was killed by a member of the Capitol Police who suffered no repercussions.  The DOJ asked for this in April, and on June 12, the case was transferred electronically to DC.  Over the following two days, all the relevant documents were transferred.

The case will now be heard by 2021 Biden appointee Judge Jia Cobb, who followed Judge Emmet Sullivan (remember his pathological, self-appointed prosecution of Michael Flynn?) into that position.  She previously was a partner in the DC law firm Relman Colfax, which according to its website is all for “Protecting Civil Rights...Exposing Injustice...Fighting for Fairness.”  For some reason, I don’t have a lot of confidence that this “fairness” is going to extend to the family of anyone who was at the Capitol that day.

Plus, if Ashli’s relatives and loved ones want to attend the trial, are they going to have to trek all the way from California to DC?  That alone seems unfair, if the case could be tried where they live.

And now the second notch in the DOJ’s belt:  As reported by POLITICO, “Washington DC’s left-leaning politics has no bearing on its residents’ ability to be fair jurors in trials of those who stormed the Capitol on January 6, 2021, a federal appeals court said Tuesday.”

A three-judge panel of the DC Circuit Court of Appeals (DC again!) ruled unanimously in the case of J6 defendant and former New York City Police Officer Thomas Webster, who was seeking a change of venue.  Out of the more than 150 J6 defendants who have argued for a change of venue, NOT ONE has been given this. Trump won’t get one, either, if/when his J6 case, prosecuted by pretend “Special Counsel” Jack Smith, goes to trial.  Judge Tanya Chutkan, who’s on record expressing massive bias concerning J6, has been assigned Trump’s case.

Obama appointee Patricia Millett, wrote, “The political inclinations of a populace writ large say nothing about an individual’s ability to serve impartially in adjudicating the criminal conduct of an individual.”  (Oh, really?  Did she SEE the outcome of Trump’s New York trial?  Of course, the judge had a lot to do with that as well.)

Cautionary tale:  the other two judges who concurred with Millett are Trump appointees, and they went along with this.  Have they all just been in DC too long?

Again from POLITICO: “The ruling is a ringing rejection of Trump and his allies’ longstanding claims that fair trials are impossible in cities with Democrat-leaning populations.”

Even though they are.
