He’s obviously correct here.
A man who donned fur, horns and red, white and blue face paint while storming the Capitol last week is now requesting a pardon from President Trump.
Jacob Anthony Chansley, who also goes by the name “QAnon Shaman,” turned himself in to authorities Saturday after he traveled to Washington, D.C., at Trump’s call for “patriots” to take a stand against the election results.
His attorney Albert Watkins is now making a plea for a pardon, stating that Chansley was not involved in Wednesday’s violence and surrendered peacefully.
“My client had heard the oft-repeated words of President Trump,” Watkins said, according to local CBS station KMOV4. “The words and invitation of a president are supposed to mean something. Given the peaceful and compliant fashion in which Mr. Chansley comported himself, it would be appropriate and honorable for the president to pardon Mr. Chansley and other like-minded, peaceful individuals who accepted the president’s invitation with honorable intentions.”
Chansley is facing charges including knowingly entering or remaining in any restricted building or grounds without lawful authority, and violent entry and disorderly conduct on Capitol grounds.
So far, Trump has denounced the Stormers at least three separate times, two in statements given specifically for the purpose of denouncing them.
He’s trying to apparently save himself, even though that is obviously impossible.
Trump has been behaving disgracefully since starting that awesome riot.
He should issue a blanket pardon of everyone involved in the Capitol Storm, period.
None of them did anything wrong, and whatever they did do,, they did it on Trump’s almost explicit orders.
