First Two Jan. 6 Appeals Reach Supreme Court

via ABC

The U.S. Supreme Court has scheduled a conference for December 1 to consider two significant Jan. 6 case appeals, potentially marking the first time a Jan. 6-related case is reviewed by the Supreme Court.

The cases involve a federal agent carrying a firearm at the U.S. Capitol and the Department of Justice’s use of an evidence-tampering law to prosecute Jan. 6 defendants for felony obstruction of Congress.

The outcome could impact hundreds of defendants, and defense attorneys argue that the DOJ’s use of the statute represents prosecutorial overreach. (Trending: Jury Reaches Verdict In Paul Pelosi Hammer Case)

“If the Biden DOJ’s adventurism is allowed to stand, it will permanently change the ability of the government to suppress the rights of American citizens,” legal researcher Jonathon Moseley stated.

The second case involves the prosecution of a former DEA agent for carrying his service pistol and credentials onto Capitol grounds, with his appeal arguing that he was legally authorized to do so.

The Supreme Court’s ruling would have nationwide implications for federal law enforcement.
