Courts unraveling cases against Jan. 6 defendants

The DOJ and FBI have been overcharging defendants and also been holding them in pretrial detention for what amounts to relatively minor offenses.  I suspect they are doing it for political reasons and not for the ends of justice.  Both the FBI and DOJ appear to have had an animosity toward President Trump and his supporters starting with his election and continuing it after the 2020 election.

 Andreas Widburg:

Prosecutors in the cases against the January 6 demonstrators are starting to run into some judicial pushback: Questions about exculpatory evidence in their possession not turned over as the law demands, lower courts assessing the defendant as more dangerous than the evidence warranted, and most significantly, whether the prosecution is overcharging defendants with the federal crime of obstruction.
