( – Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) during an episode of his podcast “The Verdict with Ted Cruz,” claimed that Tanya Chutkan, the U.S. District Judge who will be overseeing former President Donald Trump’s case relating to his attempts to remain in power after the 2020 presidential election was “relentlessly hostile” towards Trump.

Cruz argued during his podcast that Chutkan Is known for belonging to the far left and that she has previously dismissed federal death penalty cases while issuing harsher sentences to those involved in the Jan. 6, 2021, Capitol attack. He proceeded to say that they can expect that the judge in Trump’s case is going to be extremely hostile towards the former President while at the same time abiding by every request made by the Department of Justice and President Biden.

Chutkan, who is a nominee of former President Barack Obama, was confirmed in 2014 by the Senate unanimously. This means that Cruz was one of the people who had voted in favor of her confirmation.

However, now he has argued that if Trump’s case ends up being trailed in Washington, D.C., then there was a higher chance of him being convicted because D.C. tends to lean to the left.

He added that in D.C. they are not supporters of Donald Trump and that it is likely that a D.C. jury is going to choose to convict Trump regardless of the law just because he is hated. He pointed out that this was also the reason why the Department of Justice had wanted the case to be brought In D.C. so that they could have a far-left judge and jury.
