Where Are They Now?

The Daily Beast:

Jacob Chansley—the man who became notorious as the behorned “QAnon Shaman” when he stormed the Capitol earlier this month—has asked to return to the building to testify against Donald Trump at his imminent impeachment trial. Chansley turned on Trump when the former president failed to offer him a pardon before he left office last week.

Well this will be interesting. Coat, tie, horns and spear?

Chansley and at least four others facing federal charges stemming from the riot have said they were simply taking orders from Trump—and Watkins said it’s important that lawmakers hear directly from Chansley when they try Trump over his role in stirring up the Capitol mob.

I’m really surprised that any legal counsel would be OK with sending in the client to testify why he did something and in plain language confessing?

    It’s pretty obvious they’ve opted for a mental incompetency defense.

    I hope they will take the precaution of putting a pair of those goat noodles on his horns when he arrives for his testimony.

    Behorned? Such an ugly word. I prefer bedazzled. Also, if you check the historical records you will see that it is normal for a Nazi to claim ‘I was just following orders’ as a defense.

    Will he bring his little inbred neck-beard as a corroborating witless?

    “If he were a real trump disciple he would have painted his face orange. No further questions, Mr. Some Other Justice.” (Roberts says he doesn’t want to do it again.)

    Since loyalty is a one-way street with Suckface, repercussions can be a truly painful kick in the nuts.

    That’s Albert Watkins, a St. Louis lawyer.
    He says he’s angling for that pardon LDN promised.
    From St Louis Post-Dispatch

    A St. Louis-based lawyer for one of the men charged with participating in the U.S. Capitol riot last week says President Donald Trump should pardon his client because he was following Trump’s instructions.

    He also claimed he got a letter with suspicious white powder from the wilds of Arizona, saying “you will NOT represent these traitors” but it isn’t clear if he’s a traitor because he attacked the capitol or a traitor because he’s crying about LDN neglecting to pardon him.

      Talk about being a day late and a dollar short.

        I think that’s why he’s offering testimony in the impeachment trial. He’s hoping for someone else to pardon him in return for coming forward. Not that this would be legal.
        Perhaps he hopes for leniency in return and the chance to bring his impeachment trial testimony back to his own trial as evidence of his being duped – surely that will play well in the courtroom

    can’t see why they’d want someone with obvious mental problems (just my opinion) to testify unless they’re hoping under cross-examination the lawyer/s defending ldn (whoever they may be) will make him cry and ask for his mommy. y’all remember ‘mommy, they don’t got organic in jail!!!”?
