Every day in this country, some judge make a horrific ruling that violates the constitutional rights of a citizen. For example, U.S. District Judge Royce Lamberth, who was appointed for life and is presiding over the January 6 defendants, has now been overruled by the DC appeals court for violating the rights of possibly hundreds of American citizens.

January 6th Defendant James Little did enter the U.S. capital, but there was no evidence he engaged in any violence or destruction. But Judge Lamberth imposed prison time and three years parole for a misdemeanor conviction in violation of federal law. The D.C. Federal Court of Appeals on March 1, 2024 ruled Lamberth violated their rights and ordered new sentencing. The ruling will affect over 100 convictions, including those made by U.S. District Judge Tanya Chutkan. Chutkan also handed down prison sentences in January 6th 2021 riot cases that were harsher than Justice Department prosecutors recommended.

U.S. District Judge Tanya Chutkan is the Federal Judge overseeing Jack Smith’s January 6th case against Trump. Chutkan was a woke Washington, D.C., slip-and-fall lawyer before she was appointed by Obama.

Federal judges like Lamberth and Chutkan are appointed for life. They have immunity to do and say whatever they want “from the bench.” They cannot be prosecuted for their rhetoric from the bench nor outrageous rulings that violated the constitutional rights of American citizens. Appeals courts can check their power. But ultimately, if a federal judge goes too far, they can only be removed through impeachment by the House of Representatives and a conviction by the U.S. Senate. The same as the president. Only the House can impeach a president, and only the Senate can convict and remove a president. Federal courts have no authority to do either. But Jack Smith and Biden are claiming that after leaving office, a president can be put on trial and convicted for actions taken while in office. And that threatens the fabric of our constitutional republic. We’re not a democracy.

The Executive Branch has the sole authority to bring federal charges, which makes it a political action. We may like to think federal charges are not politically charged and motivated, but the reality is its a policy decision made by the president that must be defended to the voters. Biden may learn that the hard way.

For example, Obama ordered the drone killing of an American citizen overseas. Could President Trump have ordered the DOJ to charge, arrest, and try Obama? No. Congress has that sole authority.

Even a member of the House and Senate has criminal and civil immunity for anything they say or do on the floor or on the way to Congress in their official capacity. It’s clearly stated in the Constitution.

“They shall in all Cases, except Treason, Felony and Breach of the Peace, be privileged from Arrest during their Attendance at the Session of their respective Houses, and in going to and returning from the same; and for any Speech or Debate in either House, they shall not be questioned in any other Place.”

We’ve had members of the House commit acts of violence on the floor of Congress. But, again, they can only be removed by their respective bodies, not a court of law. The Executive Branch cannot arrest them while on the floor of Congress. The Congressional Sergeant of Arms has that sole authority.

The constitution clearly outlines the authority of each branch and provides the same mechanism to remove public officials from all offices. That power rests alone in the hands of Congress, starting in the House. The branch closest to the people, in theory,.

That means the courts, who are an equal branch of government to the Executive Branch and to Congress, do not have the constitutional power to put on trial and convict a former President for actions taken while President; only Congress has that power.

And in the case of President Trump, he was impeached by the House, and the Senate found him not guilty for his actions on January 6th. Double jeopardy applies no matter what creative charges Jack Smith tries to drum up. But Dems reject the limits on their constitutional powers and reject the Constitution. They want their vision of fairness to trump the constitution. That’s what’s at stake.

Judge Lamberth and Judge Chutkan, just like former President Trump, cannot be prosecuted in a court of law for actions taken while on the bench. Congress, and Congress alone, has the sole authority to convict all federal office holders. And that’s why no president has ever been convicted in a federal court for actions taken in their official capacity in all of American history. The balance of power between the branches of government is more important than “getting President Trump.”.

Republicans in the House must intervene now and assert their constitutional authority by impeaching U.S. District Judge Tanya Chutkan, who has violated her oath of office and constitutional limits.
