    Jacob Albert Chansley who broke into the Capitol asks for Trump’s forgiveness

    Jacob’s lawyer Albert Chansley said it would be appropriate for President Trump to pardon him, along with other peaceful people who were at the assault on the Capitol.

    A man who burst into the Capitol in Washington on January 6 dressed as a bison, wearing a horned, shirtless cap and momentarily presiding over the Senate, has asked outgoing President Donald Trump to grant him a pardon.

    This was announced by Albert Watkins, the attorney for Jacob Albert Chansley, also known as Jake Angeli, a member of the QAnon conspiracy theory movement that calls itself “Yellowstone Wolf” on its YouTube channel, local media said Thursday.

    “Given the peaceful and obedient manner in which Mr. Chansley behaved, it would be appropriate and honorable for the President to forgive Mr. Chansley and other peaceful like-minded individuals,” said the defender of the subject whose presence on Capitol Hill went viral on social networks and drew the attention of thousands.

    According to the Justice Department, Chansley has been charged with knowingly entering or remaining in any restricted building or land without legal authority, and with violent entry and disorderly conduct on Capitol grounds.

    The assault on that compound resulted in the death of five people, including a policeman from the Legislative building.

    Chansley turned himself in to the authorities and has been detained since last Saturday.

    His lawyer alleged, in statements reproduced by The Hill, that his client “had heard the frequently repeated words of President Trump.

    “The words and invitation of a president are supposed to mean something,” the lawyer defended.

    This Thursday, the director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), Christopher Wray, revealed that more than 100 people have been arrested in connection with the assault on the Capitol, in actions that have taken place in places like Phoenix (Arizona), Dallas (Texas) and Honolulu, in the Hawaiian archipelago.

    The House of Representatives on Wednesday endorsed the beginning of a political trial against Trump, the second he faces since his arrival at the White House, under the charge of “inciting insurrection” for the assault on the Capitol.

    After that action, security measures have been tightened in Washington in anticipation of the inauguration of Democrat Joe Biden as the new president, a ceremony that Trump anticipated he would not attend.
