J6 Legal Fund, a corporation spearheaded by a January 6 defendant that raises funds to safe conservative attorneys for political prisoners, has retained the distinguished polling and market analysis agency to craft bulletproof information for a Change of Venue movement.
While the Department of Justice United States Attorney’s Office has roughly a 60 % total conviction charge in non-J6 jury trials, the United States Attorney’s Office has secured convictions in one hundred pc of January 6 jury trials.
Donald Trump and his authorized crew have touted arguments for shifting the previous president’s prison case out of Washington, D.C. Trump’s crew contends the District of Columbia’s far leftwing political would deprive him of an neutral jury and the January protest evokes an emotional response amongst DC resident that’s distinctive to the area.
Trump’s crew has requested Federal District Court Judge Chukan to permit a complicated statistical examine, proving that Washington DC’s jury pool is irreparably biased in opposition to him and the Jan 6ers. Like each federal choose on the bench in Washington, DC, presiding over a whole bunch of prison instances stemming from the Capitol riot, Chutkan has rejected all of their requests.
“People in this country have strong views … we expect people to have opinions. And one of the things — it’s fine to have an opinion,” Chutkan mentioned in September 2022 in rebuke of defendant Russell Alford’s bid to relocate his Jan. 6 case.
“But what I’m going to be instructing the jury is, ‘Can you put aside your opinion and adjudge the defendant based on the evidence?’ And it’s amazing how, I have found, how seriously jurors take that charge,” the choose continued. “And what we’re looking for is not people without opinions; what we’re looking for is people who are able to put aside their opinion and focus their decision solely on the evidence presented in this courtroom.”
Triton Polling, headed by Sean Bartley, has teamed up with protection attorneys employed by J6 Legal, a corporation created by J6 defendant Jake Lang, to plot a treatment they hope shall be utilized to the plain unfairness within the discussion board.
The agency intends to survey a whole bunch of Washington DC residents about their true emotions about Trump and January 6 and again up claims in regards to the rigged jury pool in a never-before-seen novel approach.
Earlier this month, legal professional Steve Metcalf, Lang’s lawyer, sounded the alarm on jurors being “recycled” on Jan. 6 trials, an oddity he and different attorneys representing J6 defendants declare they’ve “never seen in all their years of practicing law.”
Approximately 20 jurors have been known as to jury responsibility on his consumer Zachary Alam’s trial after they have been known as for jury responsibility in one other J6 trial and struck down simply days prior.
“The survey we intend to conduct with Triton Polling is a creative solution to present statistics showcasing jury bias in a way that no one has done before,” Metcalf informed The Gateway Pundit in an unique interview.
“The same jurors are being called to jury duty on January 6 trials over and over again,” he mentioned. “Not to say, how many individuals, potential jurors in DC, are registered Democrats in that jurisdiction? How many individuals have harsh emotions about January 6ers as an entire? How many individuals have harsh emotions about January 6 as an entire due to the protection that they’ve seen? How has this one incident basically divided our nation politically?
And then, to prime it off, individuals harbor sturdy, deep-rooted emotions about explicit teams and people that have been there that day. Think in regards to the Proud Boys; all the potential jurors and the jurors who have been chosen had these preconceived notions of who the Proud Boys have been, about how they’re ‘white supremacists’ — that’s deeply rooted. That is a core perception that you simply’re not going to have the ability to put aside. The complete function of being a juror is to be truthful and unbiased.
Lang is seen in footage close to the Rotunda on January 6 sporting a fuel masks as he pulls individuals up off the bottom. J6 defendant Phillip Anderson and Tommy Tatum, who has but to face fees “for his role in the Capitol riot,” credit score Lang with saving their lives on January 6. As dozens of demonstrators fell on prime of them, Lang picked them up and walked them to security. Lang can also be seen in footage from January 6 rendering help to Roseanne Boyland moments earlier than Officer Lila Morris beat Boyland’s unconscious physique.
“J6Legal began embarking on this to survey the jury pool in DC a few weeks ago, but we need the American people’s help to bring this vital expedition to fruition,” Lang informed TGP in an unique interview.
These venue motions have been filed on January 6 instances for the final two years,” he mentioned. “The strategy we’re taking is exclusive, attempting to make clear the issues that haven’t been adequately addressed to date.
The Gateway Pundit has solely obtained among the questions that shall be on this groundbreaking ballot.
Here are a number of that shall be requested on the official change of venue ballot:
1. Have you ever heard about or seen a video of the massive Trump protest on the Capitol on January 6, 2021?
2. Did you watch any of the January 6 Select Committee hearings that Congress televised on TV or see any clips on social media?
3. Did you see movies or photos of protestors being violent with the police?
4. Did these movies actually horrify you?

“These questions have been specially designed to root out the insurmountable bias that every Washington DC resident has against Trump and the January 6 protestors,” Lang continued. “Legally talking, this inherent bias leaves the DOJ in a Constitutional disaster; both the court docket should violate Trump and the Jan 6 defendants’ Constitutional Right to an unbiased jury, or, with any knowledge – they need to change the venue of the court docket to a different extra appropriate space.
“This polling process administered by Triton Polling could be very thorough and costly! In order to achieve a 5 % margin of error, a whole bunch and a whole bunch of DC residents, must be cross-sectioned, authenticated, and polled.
“Please help pay for the retainer costs, which only half of is currently paid! Please visit J6Legal.org now and donate, your generosity is greatly appreciated. This very well might be the one shot the Jan 6ers have to get out of DC and into an unbiased jury pool.”
