‘Are you serious?’: Trump Jan. 6 trial judge shreds rioter who stormed Capitol with mom, rejects ‘hostage’ label at sentencing

Judge ChutkhanU.S. District Judge Tanya Chutkan — the same judge overseeing Donald Trump‘s pending election subversion trial — asked quite the incredulous question at the sentencing hearing this week of Antony Vo, an Indiana man convicted of storming the Capitol on Jan. 6 with his mother.

“Are you serious?” she asked.

The judge’s apparent frustration, she would later explain, came because Vo had “doubled down” on his remorselessness about his conduct even as he and his attorney sought leniency.

Vo was found guilty last September on four charges including entering or remaining in a restricted building or grounds; disorderly or disruptive conduct in a restricted building or grounds, violent entry or disorderly conduct in a Capitol building or grounds and parading, demonstrating or picketing in a Capitol building.

Chutkan ultimately sentenced him to nine months in prison.
