Judge Tanya Chutkan of the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia is reportedly in charge of the former president Donald Trump’s lawsuit there.
She formerly worked at the same legal office where Hunter Biden used to work and had a strong working relationship with the Ukrainian oil company Burisma.
Before being appointed to her present post by the previous President Obama, Chutkan spent 12 years working for Boies, Schiller & Flexner LLP (BSF), where she specialized in white collar litigation and antitrust defense.
Before joining BSF, Chutkan practiced law at various private businesses and worked as a public defender in Washington, D.C.
She earned degrees from the University of Pennsylvania law school and George Washington University.
When he was appointed to the board of Burisma in April 2014, Hunter Biden was employed by BSF in the same year.
According to emails on Hunter Biden’s laptop, Hunter swiftly enlisted BSF partners to help Burisma in its efforts to influence U.S. politicians.
Hunter Biden and his business partner Devon Archer discussed how BSF might provide them with “protection” and collaborate with policymakers on behalf of Burisma in April 2014.
Trump was charged on Tuesday in Washington, D.C., by Special Counsel Jack Smith of the Department of Justice (DOJ) for allegedly meddling in the 2020 presidential election and his claimed participation in the Capitol riot on January 6, 2021.
On Truth Social, Trump made the indictment public just before the news broke.
