Supreme Court To Hear Case That Could Undo Charges For Trump, J6 Protesters

via LiveNOW from FOX

The U.S. Supreme Court will review charges against former President Donald Trump and J6 protestors for obstructing an official proceeding related to the certification of Electoral College votes.

The review will impact Trump’s trial start date and has implications for over 1,200 people prosecuted in connection with J6.

The Justice Department’s handling of cases has sparked controversy, with some Republicans calling for more humane treatment of prisoners, alleging FBI involvement in instigating violence, and raising concerns about the application of federal law in obstruction cases.

“More than 1,200 people have been prosecuted with charges stemming from J6 with more than 650 defendants pleading guilty. The Justice Department’s seemingly endless stream of cases has roiled Washington where Republicans have called for more humane treatment of prisoners subjected to deplorable jail conditions while awaiting trial,” the report noted.

“Congressmen like Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) have organized trips with other GOP leaders to offer support to J6 prisoners.”

“Rep. Clay Higgins (R-LA) has pointed to FBI involvement during the riots to claim that the federal government intentionally helped instigate violence on J6.”

“Ray Epps, a protestor who gained notoriety by calling for violence and going years without prosecution, was alleged to be an FBI informant, a charge that Bureau Director Christopher Wray denied before Congress. Epps was charged earlier this year with a single count,” the report added.
