You know him, don't you?
I won't let you go!
Don't you judge me!
Does it sounds like /tʃ/ in these examples? And If, why?
I've got one more question for you:
Do I have to pronounce T in following examples:
(You know I'm talking about BrE, right? )
You know I can't do that!
He won't like the idea at all.
It's high time she went away.
Thank you very much,

The second, shown in your examples, is coalescent assimilation, when the two sounds combine to form a third, different sound.
