Arizona resident Jacob Chansley, the bare-chested guy with horns and face-paint was one of the first people who breached the Capitol building to be identified. The hard-core Q-Anon supporter and attention seeker was easily identified in multiple photos across social media wearing the same getup as he wore when he breached the Capitol building.
After his arrest, Chansley was hoping that President Trump would issue him a pardon for his part in the Capitol siege. President Trump, who never asked for anyone to illegally enter the Capitol building did not respond to his request.
Now, Chansley’s lawyer, who also has a penchant for seeking attention, is blaming Trump for his client’s decision to breach the Capitol building. According to the anti-Trump Daily Mail, Chansley’s attorney Albert S. Watkins has offered for his client to testify at Trump’s impeachment trial.
Watkins said his client was previously ‘horrendously smitten’ by Trump but now feels let down after Trump’s refusal to grant Chansley and others who participated in the insurrection a pardon.
Lawyer Albert Watkins said he hasn’t spoken to any member in the Senate since announcing his offer to have Chansley testify at Trump’s trial, which is scheduled to begin the week of February 8.
For weeks, Democrats, RINOs, and their allies in the media have been unjustly accusing President Trump of inciting a riot at the Capitol building on January 6th. A simple look at the facts, however, proves that Trump had not even ended his speech by the time protesters were outside of the Capitol building and were already involved in clashes with the police.
Unless Chansley was able to fly to the Capitol building, it’s highly unlikely he was even present during Trump’s speech that took place in front of the Elipse in front of the White House, a 40-minute walk to the Capitol building.
Life Site News – As investigations continue to clarify the events surrounding the January 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol, official timelines increasingly contradict Democrats’ narrative that President Donald Trump “incited” attackers.
Democrats specifically highlighted his statement that “if you don’t fight like hell, you’re not going to have a country anymore.”
“Thus incited by President Trump,” they purported, “members of the crowd he had addressed, in an attempt to, among other objectives, interfere with the Joint Session’s solemn constitutional duty to certify the results of the 2020 Presidential election,” committed “seditious acts.”
In fact, in his speech at the Ellipse ahead of the Capitol riot, Trump told protestors “to peacefully and patriotically make your voices heard.” The broader context of his “fight like hell” comment was a call for “election security,” with no clear indication that the statement applied to Congress’s certification of the 2020 election.
Based on Chief Sund’s timeline, the riot at the Capitol began more than thirty minutes before Trump finished his speech, and long before he made the only comment that Democrats pointed to in order to back up their baseless claim that the president “encouraged” insurrection.
Here’s the Daily Mail video showing Chansley inside of the Capitol building:
Daily Mail reports – Chansley hasn’t yet entered a plea to charges of civil disorder, obstruction of an official proceeding, disorderly conduct in a restricted building, demonstrating in a Capitol building, and other counts.
He is scheduled to be arraigned Friday in Washington.
In successfully seeking his detention until trial, prosecutors said Chansley went into the Capitol carrying a US flag attached to a wooden pole topped with a spear, ignored an officer’s commands to leave, went into the Senate chamber, and wrote a threatening note to then-Vice President Mike Pence.
