On November 5, 2021, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) and Rep.Louie Gohmert (R-LA), visited the D.C. jail where political prisoners from January 6th are still being held. She reported back to the American public that the detainees charged in connection with the Capitol riot were “suffering greatly.”

Following her visit to the DC Jail, Rep Taylor Greene released a gut-wrenching report titled, “Unusually Cruel” to document her disturbing findings.

Washington Times reports – The Georgia Republican said her visiting the detainees in the “Patriot” wing of the D.C. Central Treatment Facility “was like walking into a prisoner of war camp and seeing men [whose] eyes can’t believe someone had made it in to see them.”

Mrs. Greene said they have “virtually no medical care, very poor food quality, and [are] being put through re-education which most of them are rejecting.”

She said the detainees “have felt forgotten and hopeless” and that she was “greeted by men with overwhelming cheers who rushed out to meet me with tears streaming down their faces.”

The lawmaker is planning to release a report about the visit and said she is committed to bringing an end to this “political war.”

One of the political prisoners Rep. Taylor Greene visited in the DC Jail recently sent her a letter to express his gratitude for her concern over their well-being. The letter, written by Andrew Taake can be seen below. Andrew’s profile can be found on the American Gulag, a website dedicated to keeping tabs on the January 6th political prisoners:

Andrew Quentin Taake

Andrew Taake allegedly engaged in altercations with Capitol Police.  He is accused of pepper-spraying them. It is possible he brought a weapon that appears to be a combination of a baton and whip with him for self-protection.  Taake entered the Capitol Building and is seen pictured in various places throughout the building.

Charges

Obstruction of an Official Proceeding Assaulting, Resisting, or Impeding Certain Officers Obstruction of Law Enforcement During Civil Disorder Entering or Remaining, Disorderly and Disruptive Conduct, and Engaging in Physical Violence in a Restricted Building or Grounds Disorderly Conduct in a Capitol Building, Impeding Passage Through and Act of Physical Violence on Capitol Grounds or Buildings Parading, Demonstrating or Picketing in a Capitol Building

Please keep in mind that in the United States, every citizen charged with a crime is presumed innocent until proven guilty.

Rep. Marjorie Taylor-Greene posted a copy of the letter from Taake on social media. Along with a photo of the letter, she wrote:

I received a letter from a J6 PRE-TRIAL defendant who says he has been transferred to a maximum-security prison and is now in 24-hour-a-day confinement & only gets to shower 3 days per week.

Andrew Taake is the defendant I met on my DC Jail visit that has a mangled finger and has been refused medical treatment all these months.

His letter states that he and 2 others were transferred to USP Lewisburg after my visit.

ALL J6 defendants should be in a pre-trial facility or allowed out on bail until their trial.

Hello, I hope all is well with you and your staff. This is Andrew Take. I am the gentleman you met at D.C. Jail with the horrendously mangled finger…that I also saw you mention on War Room.
I wanted to update you on some of the happenings since your visit. Three of us have been clearly retaliated against by the Government & D.C. Jail as of 11/9/21. Thomas Ballard, Chris Quaglin, and myself have been shipped over 3 hours away to a UNITED STATES PENITENTIARY which is a maximum security facility meant for the worst offenders that get convicted. We are still in Pre-Trial Detainment and SHOULD NOT in any circumstances have come to USP Lewisburg. This place admittingly, by staff, is not even set up for Pre-Trial people.

They have us housed in a maximum-security portion of an already maximum security prison. This is a nightmare even compared to D.C. It’s been 10+ days with no access to a phone to call family or an Attorney. We’re on 24-hour per day lockdown in a 7 X 10 2-person cell, with only 3 times per week out to shower. We are treated like animals, being handcuffed even for 50 feet to get to the shower. We get no recreation time. We have no access to a law library which is another legal right. It seems that we are trying to be hidden and beaten.

Thank you again for taking your time to visit us, and the love and compassion you have shown us!! We are still in good spirits after the tear filled prayer and national anthem during your visit.

It would be a blessing to have your continued support as we try to get ourselves out of “The Big House” (USP Lewisburg) and back to a regular Pre-Trial facility.

P.S. was just told that they had a meeting specifically about fixing my finger…minimum of 6 months to even begin taking care of it

Thank you & God bless,

Andrew Taake and Thomas Ballard

Thank God for brave United States Congressmen and women like Marjorie Taylor Greene, Louie Gohmert, Matt Gaetz and Dr. Paul Gosar who shining a spotlight on one of the most unAmerican acts of injustice in our nation’s history.
