January 15 – Jacob Anthony Chansley (also known as Jake Angeli), who surrendered himself a week ago for his involvement in the congressional riots, is currently seeking amnesty from US President Trump.
Previously, Chanceley said that he had come to Washington, D.C., to participate in the event “at the invitation of the president”.
According to Business Insider on the 14th, Chansley’s lawyer Albert Watkins issued a statement on Thursday (14th) advocating that his clients and all other “peace and compliance” Capitol “protesters” should be pardoned.
“Consides with Mr. Chancell’s peaceful and law-abiding performance, Mr. President’s pardoning him and other like-minded peacemakers are perfectly correct and noble, who accepted the President’s invitation and came to the Capitol with noble motives,” Watkins said.
During the riots in the United States Congress on the 6th, Chaslee, who participated in the riots, was naked, wearing horns and leather hats, his uniform was painted with red, white and blue oil paint, and held a spear with the American flag.
This photo was spread viral on the Internet at that time, which also made him quickly popular, who was jokingly called “Brother Niu Horn” by some media.
Chanlis later surrendered to the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and was arrested on the 9th. He was charged with “knowingly entering or staying in any building or venue that is restricted without legal authorization, as well as violently entering the Capitol and acting in the Capitol”.
After the riots, Chanceley told NBC News that he didn’t think he did anything wrong.” I only walked into an open door, man,” Angel showed last Thursday (7th). But U.S. federal officials said that this is not the whole thing.
According to the U.S. Department of Justice memo, the FBI believes that Chansley left a note to Vice President Pence in his office, saying that “justice is only a matter of time before justice, and the trial is coming.”
