U.S. District Judge Tom Hogan, who recently transitioned to inactive status, presided over several January 6 cases and concurred with former Department of Justice official Mary McCord’s admission of holding significant partisan biases during her DOJ tenure.

McCord, a seasoned federal prosecutor, gained prominence for her involvement in the Russian collusion controversy. Notably, she was responsible for seeking a FISA surveillance warrant on Trump campaign member Carter Page, utilizing intelligence reports circulated as credible evidence to mainstream media.

Special Counsel John Durham’s investigation revealed that the FBI had fabricated evidence to initiate the probe into Carter Page and the Trump campaign.

Following her departure from the DOJ, she promptly resumed work in Washington, focusing on the Trump impeachment in 2020 and the highly partisan January 6 committee.

Journalist Julie Kelly

Renowned journalist Julie Kelly recently revealed an interview between McCord and Hogan at Georgetown Law in January. During the introduction of the federal judge, McCord mentioned that Hogan was enthusiastic about delving into the January 6 cases once he transitioned to inactive status.

Inactive senior status

“So when he reached out to me a couple of months ago to say, you know, now that I’m on inactive senior status, I can actually talk about the January 6th cases. I can talk about their impact on the court and on the judges and on the entire judicial system and the unprecedented nature of what we saw on January 6th,” McCord said in reference to Hogan.

Active sitting judge

“Because, you know, when you’re an active sitting judge, you really kind of can’t do that. I experienced a similar feeling of having the, you know, gag taken off when I left the government after more than 20 years,” she continued.

“Suddenly, like, you know, you’re not gagged anymore. You can talk and it’s kind of liberating,” she continued as Hogan nodded along in agreement. “Takes like six months to kind of get used to it. And then you, then you realize I have things to say And then you, then you realize I have things to say and you just start saying them.”

Capitol Police

In another part of the interview, Hogan reiterated the false claim that Capitol Police officers lost their lives due to the January 6 Capitol protests. Contrary to this assertion, all four individuals who died that day were supporters of then-President Trump.

When questioned about the impartiality of judges handling numerous January 6 cases, Hogan acknowledged that it poses a significant challenge.

Honest

“And I think if the judges are honest, they’ll tell you that about it. If we go through, because each trial you do, the government will show the most horrendous videos and apply to that defendant they can,” Hogan responded.

Overriding videos

“They’ll also educate the jury so the overriding videos about the riot, like we’ve seen, or more detailed ones about the riot. The judges see that every time they go to trial and see it again and then see it next week again and you see it next week in the next trial,” Hogan explained.

Body worn cameras

“Particularly bothersome I think to the court, at least to me was, the body worn cameras of the police officers. You know, the riot, who had been sprayed with a lot of mace and reacted to it, and then four committed suicide, two within a couple of weeks and two later, a couple of months later. What they had gone through when you see the body-worn cameras of these people attacking them, it affects you, I think,” he continued, baselessly blaming the suicides on protesters.

Prison sentences

Youtube

Kelly pointed out that Hogan, along with most D.C. District Court judges, has imposed extended prison sentences on January 6 defendants, surpassing the penalties given to Black Lives Matter and Antifa rioters in similar circumstances, if they faced any charges at all.

Hogan lied

Youtube

“Hogan lied about police fatalities tied to Jan 6 and what happened to Ofc Brian Sicknick,” Kelly wrote in an X post.

Appellate court

Youtube

“Keep in mind–Hogan was reversed by the appellate court for locking up under pretrial detention one of two men accused of spraying Sicknick with pepper spray. George Tanios spent 5+ months in the DC gulag before he was released on appeal.”

Plead guilty

Kelly highlighted that after detaining Julian Khater for 18 months until he felt compelled to plead guilty to assaulting officers, Hogan permitted Sicknick’s former girlfriend to present a ‘victim impact’ statement before sentencing Khater to 80 months in federal prison.

1,400 individuals

Over 1,400 individuals have been arrested in relation to the January 6 Capitol protests, with prosecutors under the Biden administration pledging to pursue over 2,000 cases by January 2026.
