On Friday, writing for CNN, Jennifer Rodgers detailed how the most "uniquely qualified" people to expose the truth about the January 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol are federal judges who have presided over the rioters' cases.
"There is one group of government officials who have been mostly quiet about the root causes of the events on January 6: federal judges," wrote Rodgers. "In recent days, however, three judges have made news with comments and rulings about the events on or leading up to January 6."
The three judges are Amit Mehta, who called one riot defendant a "pawn" who was "told the election was stolen when it was not," while the Republican leaders who pushed Trump's Big Lie remain unpunished; Reggie Walton, who slammed a defendant as "gullible enough to come to Washington D.C. from Florida based on a lie" and compared Trump unfavorably to Al Gore for not accepting election results that were clearer than those Gore accepted; and Magistrate Judge N. Reid Neuriter, who ordered two pro-Trump Colorado lawyers to pay the legal fees of a defamed election equipment company and said they sought to "manipulate gullible members of the public and foment public unrest."
"Measured, fact-based descriptions of relevant events by judges have the potential to persuade where hyper-partisan rhetoric from elected officials may not," wrote Rodgers. "Indeed, the public should place greater weight on what judges are saying because of their unique role as neutral arbiters and their mastery of the relevant evidence. Let's just hope people are listening."
