[Ed. – If the authorities keep freeing people who were arrested, the Democrats are going to need another therapy session.]
A Washington Judge ordered the release Friday of a New Mexico county official and Cowboys for Trump founder who was charged for crossing police lines at the Jan. 6 Capitol riot.
Otero County Commissioner Cuoy Griffin has been held in custody since his arrest near the Capitol three days prior to the inauguration of President Joe Biden, Politico reported. A Washington magistrate judge ordered Griffin’s detention given his history of threats levied toward elected officials and deemed him a flight risk.
Chief U.S. District Judge Beryl Howell overturned the prior decision, according to Politico. Howell said that Griffin’s alleged misconduct at the riot did not fit in with the most “brazen” and armed rioters. Howell added that Griffin left the Capitol grounds “peacefully.”
“He was not a participant in the violent break-in at the Capitol or the marauding mob roaming the halls” … Howell said.
