“was sentenced to just 15 months in prison on Friday after the Biden Justice Department intervened on her behalf, pressing the court to issue a sentence below the guidelines that called for 10 years”
The female half of the Molotov Cocktail lawyer duo was just sentenced and received a measly fifteen months in jail. Why did they even bother? They may as well given her time served.
That would be time served at home, by the way. She has been under house arrest while awaiting sentencing.
This domestic terrorist firebombed a New York police station with a Molotov cocktail.
She faced 10 years in prison.
The Biden DOJ intervened.
She only got 15 months.
Horn Man got 41 months for taking selfies on the Senate floor.
The Biden DOJ is rotten to its core. https://t.co/3tqzh6XfVu

From the Washington Free Beacon:
Left-Wing Lawyer Who Firebombed Police Car Dodges Five-Year Sentence, Will Spend Just 15 Months in Prison
Urooj Rahman, a public interest lawyer who firebombed a police cruiser during the 2020 George Floyd riots, was sentenced to just 15 months in prison on Friday after the Biden Justice Department intervened on her behalf, pressing the court to issue a sentence below the guidelines that called for 10 years.
U.S. District Judge Brian Cogan of the Eastern District of New York handed down the sentence to a packed courtroom in Brooklyn, where Rahman’s allies gathered in solidarity. Rahman, who faced up to five years in prison, told supporters the sentence “wasn’t the result we wanted.” Her attorney, Peter Baldwin, said Rahman’s defense team was “obviously disappointed with the result, but we are excited that Urooj can move on to the next phase of her life.”
Rahman and her accomplice, Colinford Mattis, leveraged their connections to top universities, white-shoe law firms, and the Obama administration, to win sympathy from liberal elites. They were the subjects of glowing profiles in national media during their prosecution, and struck a sweetheart deal with the Biden Justice Department, which, in a rare move, intervened to ask the court to go easy on them after the Trump administration had pressed for an aggressive prosecution.
The Justice Department declined to comment.
MEANWHILE . . .
Over at NBC News:
A Donald Trump fan who was convicted on all counts after telling jurors that he thought he was “following presidential orders” when he stole a liquor bottle and a coat rack from the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6 was sentenced to three years in federal prison on Friday.
Dustin Thompson, a college-educated Ohio man who testified that he believed Trump’s lies about the 2020 election, was convicted on six charges in April after he told jurors he was seeking Trump’s “respect” and “approval” on Jan. 6. His prior attorney argued that Trump “authorized” the attack on the Capitol, and took advantage of “vulnerable” people like his client.
“You didn’t love America that day,” Senior U.S. District Judge Reggie B. Walton told Thompson while sentencing him on Friday. Walton said he didn’t understand how “people can be gullible enough to accept a lie and act on that lie.”
Thompson was sentenced to 36 months in federal prison, and will get credit for the roughly seven months he’s served since he was convicted, meaning he’s still got more than two years to spend behind bars.
