U.S. District Judge John Holcomb wears Santa Claus attire throughout the U.S. The annual Santa Claus trial before district judge David O. Carter occurred on Dec. 16 in Santa Ana, California. At Carter’s holiday pancake breakfast, Holcomb, a 2020 Donald Trump appointee, was released from the handcuffs and hugged by his wife, ending yet another recurring tradition.
U.S. District Judge David O. Carter’s annual trial of Santa Claus
One of Santa’s lawyers cited Carter’s current notoriety as the judge who determined that Trump and his attorney John Eastman most likely committed crimes related to the attempted coup on Jan. 6.
Andrea Jacobs, a deputy public defender for the Central District, cautioned the jury that many working elves would lose their jobs and become homeless. She asserted that Judge Carter must order Mayor Bass and Eric Garcetti to address the homelessness crisis in Los Angeles. According to Jacobs, the societal effects of imprisoning Santa go beyond the increase in homelessness caused by unemployed elves and the reduction in responsibility for wrongdoing caused by stuffing coal in stockings.
The accusations of trespassing, breaking, and child labor were presented by Assistant U.S. Attorney Melissa Rabbani. A source posted that the prosecutor continued by saying that Santa frequently works in sweatshop conditions with children or small people.
The government has detained their client to end joy, happiness, and the holiday spirit, according to Santa’s attorney Kate Corrigan, who addressed Rabbani as “ASUA Grinch.” Santa is not a threat to the community, she added. She also mentioned Santa’s “stable marriage” to Mrs. Claus and his lengthy tenure in the neighborhood.
His fellow Americans were on the jury that freed Holcomb, senior U.S. District Judge James V. Selna, and District Judge Fred Slaughter.
Jan. 6 Committee Pursue Prosecutions
The House Select Committee to Examine the American Attainment of Jan. 6 with a unanimous vote on Dec. 19 to approve its final report. The Capitol appeared to patch some previously visible cracks in its otherwise tightly scripted wall of unity, thehill.com wrote.
The committee’s original task was to ascertain what occurred and, more importantly, to offer suggestions to avoid repeating it. Instead, it prioritized the pursuit of prosecutions that it lacked the right to bring. As a result, Congress’s criminal referrals are not given extra weight by the Justice Department.
