Federal judge wonders if Capitol rioters are experiencing a double-standard
US District Judge Trevor McFadden questioned if Capitol riot defendants are experiencing a double standard or not.
McFadden, appointed by former President Trump, proposed that the rioters were receiving harsher treatment than DC rioters following the murder of George Floyd.
“The US Attorney’s Office would have more credibility if it was even-handed in its concern about riots and mobs in the city,” McFadden said.
Over 600 people have been charged in connection to the events of Jan. 6.
