Donald Trump Requests Removal of Jamaican-Born Judge from His Upcoming Trial

Jamaican-born District Judge Tanya Sue Chutkan has been appointed to preside over the latest case brought against former United States President Donald Trump regarding interference in the 2020 presidential election.

With the former President facing a host of criminal charges against him, Chutkan being the judge over the case might add to the difficulties that the former President is facing.

Judge Chutkan was appointed by former President Obama and is seen as an old foe of President Trump.


A judicial committee of Congress investigated the Capitol Hill raid, and Trump’s White House records in the summer of 2021, and Chutkan rejected Trump’s efforts to prevent the documents from being provided to the committee for investigation.

On January 6 of the same year, she also handed down lengthy sentences to Trump supporters who stormed the US Capitol.

Considering the history between the two parties, former US President Donald Trump said Sunday that he would petition to have a different judge oversee his historic criminal trial, which is expected to take place in the coming weeks, as well as try to get his case removed from Washington.


Trump made the following comments regarding the matter via social media: “There is no way I can get a fair trial with the judge ‘assigned’ to the ridiculous freedom of speech/fair elections case. Everybody knows this, and so does she.”

A hearing before Judge Chutkan, in which Trump’s trial date in the election case will be announced is expected to be held on August 28.

It’s unlikely the embattled Republican leader will get his wishes in the upcoming case against him.
