Supreme Court Delivers Big Win for January 6ers and President Trump

(NEW) Protest in front of US Supreme Court over Roe V. Wade. May 3, 2022, Washington DC, Maryland, USA: Outside of the United States Supreme Court in Washington DC, protestors have gathered to voice their response to the leaked ruling that would overturn Roe V. Wade, the contentious right for women to legally have an abortion in the United States. The law has been in place in the United States since 1973.

The Supreme Court delivered one of its anticipated shockwave rulings on Friday morning that will have implications for hundreds of peaceful January 6 protesters and President Donald Trump. In a 6-3 decision, the court ruled that prosecutors and the DC Circuit Court had been misapplying the law by charging individuals with the Enron document-shredding statute.

More than 300 January 6ers have had their lives destroyed by this judicial malfeasance, and this could very well nullify two of the four charges that Donald Trump is facing in Washington, DC.

The Department of Justice was using 18 USC 1512(c)(2), commonly referred to as “obstruction of an official proceeding,” to add a felony charge to the cases of January 6 peaceful protesters.

This statute was written in the wake of the Enron scandal back in the early 2000s. When Congress wrote the law, it was intended to add stiffer penalties to white-collar criminals who shred documents that are under a DOJ or SEC subpoena (which was what Enron staffers did).

How a document-shredding law applies to people protesting at the Capitol is a mystery for the ages, but 18 district and circuit court judges in Washington, DC shamefully allowed prosecutors to get away with this charge. More than 100 January 6ers were held in pre-trial detention because they had been charged with this crime.

 

It’s a paperwork crime and not a violent crime that you would charge a terrorist with. Yet the January 6ers were treated as terrorists and held in prison for over a year, without trial, because of the 18 USC 1512(c)(2) charge.

A Trump supporter from Missouri was just sentenced last month to five years in prison for the document-shredding charge.

None of these people obstructed an official proceeding. At best, you could say they briefly interrupted a ceremonial proceeding in the US Senate because they were petitioning the government for a redress of grievances—a protected First Amendment action—because they were rightfully upset about the stolen 2020 election.

One of the January 6ers, Matthew Perna, committed suicide after he was charged with 18 USC 1512(c)(2). He couldn’t take the prospect of being sent to prison for several years just because he had peacefully walked into the Capitol for less than 20 minutes.

Leftists can’t say that this was a partisan decision by the Supreme Court. The majority were Chief Justice John Roberts, Samuel Alito, Clarence Thomas, Brett Kavanaugh, Neil Gorsuch… and Ketanji Brown Jackson. Amy Coney Barrett, in her quest to become the next Sandra Day O’Connor, sided with the Justices Kagan and Sotomayor.

Justice Jackson wrote that despite “the shocking circumstances involved in this case,” the lower courts couldn’t simply misapply the law in such a fashion. The Enron document-shredding law has literally nothing to do with anything that the January 6ers did.

It would be like catching someone jaywalking and tacking on a manslaughter charge. It doesn’t even make sense to charge any of the J6ers with 18 USC 1512(c)(2).

More than 110 January 6ers have already been sent to prison because of this statute. The others are still awaiting trial. After the Supreme Court ruling, the court systems in DC were flooded with hundreds of motions to either vacate the sentences of the prisoners or to drop the obstruction charge against them.

This case, known as Fischer v. United States, made it to the Supreme Court finally after Joseph Fischer refused to accept the charge as legitimate. On January 6, the Senate adjourned and left the building because they were all too cowardly to speak to the protesters.

One hour after the Senate had adjourned, Fischer walked in and back out of the building in less than four minutes. Since there was no Senate meeting taking place at the time, how could he have obstructed an official proceeding?

This is huge news for the 300+ January 6ers who are no longer felons. It’s good news for Donald Trump as well. His lawyers have filed a motion to dismiss the two obstruction charges against him.

Now we’re just waiting for the Supreme Court to hand down its decision on presidential immunity, which could vacate all of Jack Smith’s charges against Trump in Washington, DC, and in the Florida documents case. That decision will likely come sometime today or later this week.

    1. Ladies and gentlemen I do believe we have one judical court that is taking a step to start correcting the wrongs Obiden place on people for political reasons not what was right. Our judicial system was hijacked by Obiden and Eric Holder to make sure everything went their way. Now I still want to know what where all these people in judicial system promised, bought out or threatened do Obiden dirty work. Obama weaponized our government from end to the other and we need to get rid of all the bad actors and put in safe guards so this never happens to anyone ever again. What is even worse is we paid for it all by lies. Accountability will be biggest priority in 2025. I would really like to see who hasn’t paid their tax debits for years and make them cough it up. Also would like for them to have to pay our citizens back from retire funds, inside stock trading, money they used for personal gains, giving money to organizations in order to get that money back in donations for campaign. Why did Obama give money to M Obama’s former employee and what happened to all the money in bills passed we never seen what actually went for and so much more. People like M Flynn, J6 prisoners, President Trump and others should be allowed to recoup their money from these idiot. They not only destroyed our country but killed people all over corruption. No more playing around take them all down. Make them live like the rest of us from now on and disgrace them to no end.

      1. Absolutely true. Honest and accurate. Something desperately lacking in our present administration.
        Obama should be deported for treason. We all know who is calling all the shots. Biden is the pathetic scapegoat. He is not running America. Democracy haters are running our country. God bless Trump.

      2. So truth! Would like to know what happened to 775 billion dollars Obama borrowed from CHINA? There nothing being said about it! Was reported he used the 3 west coast state’s as DOWN PAYMENT! So does that make CALIFORNIA, OREGON, WASHINGTON under CHINA AUTHORITY?

    2. Qute: y“A Trump supporter from Missouri was just sentenced last month to five years in prison for the document-shredding charge “

      Wouldn’t the same “Justice” apply to Pelosi for shredding Trump’s SOTU address on Worldwide TV?

      1. NOT to leave out Hillary Clinton destory classified documents too! But you should know these DEMOCRAT POLITICIANS will never be arrested! TRUMP SHOULD HAD PUT HER IN PRISON IN 2016!

  1. Send ALL governmental officials who participated in this to gitmo for EXECUTIONS, GUARDS TOO !

    1. Yes!!!! My idea too! All that sit on PELOSI COMMITTEE SHOULD BE EXECUTED BY FIRING SQUAD! They all know they are guilty! Just trying hard to hide the truth! But the PEOPLE ARE SMARTER THAN AN POLITICIANS!

  2. This kangaroo court should be in jail they are not going by the law of the land they are going by a criminal want to be dictator just like the idiots around the world. The morons in this kangaroo court are nothing more than puppets I am not sure if they have gone to kiss fat ass Trump’s ass lately aren’t they about due they are the laughing stock of the world are court system is much worse than a third world court

    1. The court system was set up by DEMOCRAT POLITICIANS! It been abused by all those people who didn’t care if other people were sent to PRISON for a crime THEY DID! Just as long as it kept them out of prison! Why do you think the CLINTON HAD 54 PEOPLE KILL TO KEEP FROM TESTIFY AGAINST THEM?

  3. This shows how the Democratic Attorneys and Judges work. Anything to “GET” Donald Trump! Justice is Served Finally! Now to see how many Law Suits are filed to Compensate the Ones that have UNLAWFULLY been imprisoned.Also Trump’s Attorney may need to go back to LAW SCHOOL !!

  4. Let’s get over all the BS in Washington’s staged show Considering all the rioters of BLM and organizers who destroyed burned down buildings in Portland Wisconsin and other,cities where are they now bailed out no charges brought millions of dollars in destruction. Only Jan. 6ers Trump Maga supporters What a hypocrisy the leftist BS

    1. What about all the violence and riots, destruction of property, by Antifa and others when Trump was elected president. What about all the emails, etc., 32000 of them were destroyed by Hillary and cohorts.

  5. After reading the article. What was the document shedding act? How does it apply to those people that were at the capitol? Biggest surprise to me was that BARRETT VOTE! Trump put in as SUPREME COURT JUDGES! ONE OF THE FEW MISTAKE TRUMP MADE! She should know NONE OF THESE DA OR JUDGES HAD ANY RIGHT TO CHARGE JANUARY 6TH PEOPLE WITH THAT! Did she study laws or did same as Harris on her knees? But these far leftist judges and DA should be DISBARRED AND EXPELLED FROM HOLDING ANY JOBS IN GOVERNMENT! So were the ARRESTED OF PELOSI AND HILLARY AND ALL OF THOSE POLITICIANS THAT WERE ON THE PELOSI COMMITTEE BOARD? WASN’T THERE SHEDDING OF DOCUMENTS BY THOMPSON AND RANKIN TO KEEP FROM PASSED OVER THE EVIDENCE OF JANUARY 6TH? Show like a lot of people deserve to be EXECUTED BY FIRING SQUAD IN DC COURT SYSTEM!

  6. “Justice Jackson wrote that despite “the shocking circumstances involved in this case,” the lower courts couldn’t simply misapply the law in such a fashion.” The lower courts in many cases have done NOTHING but misapply the law” to obtain the left’s desired results. Remember back to when Jeffrey Epstein was given a slap on the wrist and the ruling came down that none of his co-conspirators could be brought to account? Hillary Clinton has yet to account for over $2 Billion of Relief money that went “unaccounted for” after being funneled thru the Clinton “Foundation” (more like Trust), under orders of then Secretary of Take – Hillary Clinton after the 2010 Haitian Earthquake. Bill DeBlasio and his wife have NEVER been investigated for the $850,000,000 of NYC taxpayer money that they could not account for. Now Newsom out in California cannot account for $24 Billion of California taxpayers money. Still no charges or investigations. ALL of Nancy Pelosi’s insider trading recierved a pass – no investigations no charges. After 3 1/2 years Pelosi has finally admitted that she ordered the Capitol Police to “Stand Down” right before theis so called “insurection”. I wonder when will people start asking WHY – she told the Capitol Police that were guarding her San Francisco home to “Stand Down” – mere hours before her husband was attacked? Wherever Pelosi is concerned – something stinks.

  7. I would add to that $850,000,000 of NYC taxpayer money that DeBlasio cannot account for that – ALVIN BRAGG – sure went tooth and nail after Trump for $130,000 paid to a woman to keep quiet about an affair that may have occured when Trump was a Private Citizen – not an elected official. BRAGG is taking victory laps over that. IF I was a New Yorker I would be demanding that BRAGG get off of his ass and find out what happened to “OUR” $850,000,000!

  8. All of the j6 who have been in prison, will get money for faults I imprisonment.. look at the way these people have been treated by the democrats, namely, Obama, Biden, Pelosi, garland, Wray. These people need to be held accountable. Hillary Clinton to.

  9. I agree! God bless Trump! God Bless everyone who backed Trump and all True Americans!! Time to get our country back! Time to clean out the Swamp for good!! We can never let this happen again!

  10. Right on–for all the above remarks.
    Remember, the White House, is the people’s house . We all were allowed at one time, to go in and visit our politicians anytime we wanted to. What happened to that? All of a sudden, no one can go into the White House, it doesn’t belong to the people any longer? And what about Cheney? So pulled a really fast one, with our money, a phooey trail? And the police officers that lied on the trail? So really sad for our country. It’s become a nation of lies, deceit, fraud and non-accountability. Mr. Trump is the only truth teller, a true American and patriot, God bless him. He is for America and our nation. Vote for our Hero!
