Politico reporter Kyle Cheney is clearly on pins and needles waiting for the January 6 trial of Donald Trump, which isn’t until next March. But on Monday, he offered “pregame” excitement in a story titled Inside the courtroom of Trump’s D.C. judge.”
Cheney began: “U.S. District Court Judge Tanya Chutkan is poised to preside over a historic trial that will feature a defendant unlike any who has set foot in her court or any other: former President Donald Trump.”
Although Cheney noted she was an Obama appointee, the judge was presented as an impartial hero against Trump: “Chutkan probed potential jurors’ strong feelings about Trump and his lies about the 2020 election. She grappled with disputes over evidence-sharing. And she laid down the law, quite literally, with a recalcitrant defendant who violated the terms of his pretrial release — just as Trump has been accused of by prosecutors.”
