[Ed. – This is utterly farcical. The real question about this poor guy seems to be whether he’s even competent. But the benefit of continuing the farce is that he erodes the narrative about the Capitol riot more effectively than almost anything else. If he looks scary to the media, judges, or a bunch of Democrats, that just clarifies how off their rockers they are.]
Jacob Chansley, the self-proclaimed “QAnon Shaman” who participated in the Jan. 6 riot at the Capitol, will not be released from jail ahead of his trial, a federal judge determined on Monday.
In court documents cited by CNN, Judge Royce Lamberth argued that Chansley’s statements holding former President Trump accountable for his alleged illegal entry into the Capitol building showed that Chansley was unremorseful about his actions.
“The court finds that no condition or combination of conditions of release will reasonably assure defendant’s appearance as required [in court] or the safety of others and the community,” Lamberth ruled.
