    UPDATE: This almost happened.

    The QAnon shaman tried in court to have his guilty plea thrown out, on the legal grounds of "Tucker Carlson said it was okay".

    And the judge was not having it.

    Chansley finished his sentence in March. But after leaving prison, he asked Lamberth to undo his conviction, saying security camera footage from inside the Capitol aired by Fox News host Tucker Carlson a few weeks prior showed police allowed him to wander around the building on Jan. 6. The attorney who represented Chansley when he took his plea told Carlson he did not have that video at the time.

    Lamberth, in a 35-page ruling, denied Chansley's bid while laying out in detail why the claim that he and other rioters were allowed in and around the Capitol by police are false.

    All but 10 seconds of the video Carlson showed was produced to Chansley before his sentencing, Lamberth said, and the surveillance video Chansley now claims undermines his conviction is duplicative of police body-camera footage he was given months before he decided to plead guilty.

    "These videos are decidedly not exculpatory," Lamberth wrote. "Such footage, conveniently omitted by the [Fox News] program, shows nearly all of Mr. Chansley's actions that day, including: carrying a six-foot-long pole armed with a spearhead, unlawfully entering the Capitol through a broken door, disobeying orders from law enforcement on more than a half-dozen occasions, screaming obscenities, entering the Senate chamber, climbing onto the Senate dais, sitting in the Vice President's chair, and leaving a threatening message for the Vice President." He added, "That law enforcement officers outnumbered by the quantity of rioters did not physically engage Mr. Chansley or impede his progress is irrelevant."

    Lamberth said that if Chansley had gone to trial or fought conditions of the plea, as he now says he should have, he would have still been convicted and faced a higher sentence for not accepting responsibility. He said he was "disappointed" that Chansley had disavowed the remorse that had impressed the judge at sentencing.

    "Such an about-face casts serious doubt on the veracity of any of Mr. Chansley' s claims, here or elsewhere," Lamberth wrote.
    Yes, Lamberth openly regretted giving such a light sentence to a now admitted liar. Oh, and murderous insurrectionist.

    After dismissing Chansley's claims that the government failed to turn over information and that his attorney was not effective, Lamberth went on to express his concern with Carlson's misleading depiction on the riot, calling it not just "ill-advised" and inaccurate but "alarming."

    "The host explicitly questioned the integrity of this Court - not to mention the legitimacy of the entire U.S. criminal justice system - with inflammatory characterizations of cherry-picked videos stripped of their proper context," he wrote, "language resembling the destructive, misguided rhetoric that fueled the events of January 6 in the first place."

    The judge suggested that "members of the public who are concerned about the evidence presented in Mr. Chansley's case and others" read the public filings and attend court hearings.

    "Those of us who have presided over dozens of cases arising from, listened to hundreds of hours of testimony describing, and reviewed thousands of pages of briefing about the attack on our democracy of January 6 know all too well that neither the events of that day nor any particular defendant's involvement can be fully captured in a seconds-long video carelessly, or perhaps even cynically, aired in a television segment or attached to a tweet," he wrote.

    He absolutely should, I wish that they could, but I hope he learns from this and stop giving these magatards lenient sentences.

    Jan. 6 rioter who assaulted officer with flagpole sentenced to 4 years in prison

    For those of you wondering why attacking an on-duty law enforcement member with a metal club is only four years in prison, it's because the officer in question was wearing the wrong shoes.

    No, really.

    Every single one of those Capitol law enforcement officers, death is the remedy, that is the only remedy they get
    -- the insurrectionist in question, in a video submitted at trial

    Whoops! How did that evidence of motive get there? I meant to quote this instead.

    Stager said Monday that he thought that the officer was a member of antifa, and that all he saw were the officer's shoes and that it was “kind of odd” for people to be dressed in tactical gear and wearing hiking boots.

    "What I remember, ultimately, was the feet," he said.
    Then he plead guilty, blamed his parents, and Trump.

    Bruno Joseph Cua, member of the insurrection who assaulted an officer and sat in Pence's chair, gets a year in prison and three years of supervised release.

    Despite his prominent role in the murderous insurrection, it seems he was given a lighter sentence as he was 18 and brought by his parents.

    Mike Pence held a town hall.

    Trump's most devout murderous insurrectionists gathered to shout him down.

    “There’s the sellout! There’s the traitor!” they yelled at Pence as he exited his vehicle. “Why’d you sell out the people?”

    On Friday night, one town hall participant, Mary Bartel of Windham, asked Pence why he didn't go along with that plan. Pence explained, as he has previously to other skeptical voters, that he did not have the authority to overturn the election.

    He also told her to write down and look up “Article Two, Section One, Clause Three” of the Constitution.

    “I will,” she said.
    "Sounds like he's got a spine after all."

    No.

    “I know the people in this movement, whether they support me or not, are the best people in this country,” he said as he pointed to the protesters in the corner of the room.
    Fucking coward-ass pussy. Oh, wait, do I have to wait till his wife is in the room before I call him a dickless GOP sellout?

    More than 1,100 people have now faced Jan. 6 criminal charges

    Trump is one of them.

    110 people have been found guilty at trial and about 366 have been sentenced to incarceration in connection to the attack, according to figures from the U.S. Attorney's Office for D.C. through Aug. 4.

    About 632 people have pleaded guilty to federal charges, including many who could face incarceration at sentencing.

    Of the nearly 1,000 individuals charged with entering or remaining in a restricted federal building or grounds, 104 have been charged with "entering a restricted area with a dangerous or deadly weapon," per the U.S. Attorney's office for D.C.

    About 140 police officers were assaulted during the Capitol riot.

    A Capitol insurrectionist was supposed to be sentenced today, but he skipped the court hearing, now he has a warrant out for his arrest.

    MTG says Biden should be in jail for 33 years for taking bribes.

    "Oh what proof?"

    None. The same unverified allegations we've known about for some time.

    "Okay, but this is the wrong thread."

    She was defending the leader of the Proud Boys when she said it.

    You know who the Justice Department is not seeking 33 years in prison for? Antifa/BLM violent rioters who burned, looted, destroyed $2 billion in property in George Floyd riots. And Hunter Biden and Joe Biden for taking criminal bribes selling political influence and favors.
    Greene has also claimed the DoJ is being weaponized, while working with Trump who promised to weaponize it, and demanding the DoJ do her political bidding and jail Biden.

    Honestly, every time one of these jackals says someone should be jailed without proof, someone should make the same accusation about them. I can probably bet odds that, at least when it comes to them, it will come true most of the time.

    What is it we keep saying these days? Whatever the GOP accuse others of doing, they are doing themselves?

    This thread? Sure, why not.

    Arizona Supreme Court sanctions its Republican Party.

    So Republican Abe Hamadeh, last shown here:

    Quote Originally Posted by Breccia View Post

    Why yes, that is the Arizona Republic I just cited. Hamadeh ran for AG and lost by 511 votes, and is now suing to just change some votes to put himself in charge of how voter fraud is handled, I don't know anymore, this is just so much bullshit.
    Hamadeh took his case directly to the state's Supreme Court, claiming that there were hundreds or more of uncounted votes, that obviously they were all for him, and he should just be crowned the victor without looking into it.

    The AZSC was, apparently, not a fan. In addition to everything else wrong with the request, Hamadeh skipped several steps in the process, such as formal appeals of the other cases he lost, and if there's one thing AZSC and I have in common, it's that students need to show all their work, not just copy something down from online and hope it's correct. That, and of course, the lack of proof, and the election being over by nearly a calendar year.

    Having "misrepresented facts" and ignored all the rules, Hamadeh and the RNC must pay the legal fees of both sides.

    Because Petitioners were not only aware that they needed a final judgment to seek appellate relief but also misrepresented to this Court that they had sought such relief when they had not done so, and because this representation was the underlying premise upon which this petition was brought, and because all of Petitioners' claims for trial court error can be presented on appeal, we find that the special action unnecessarily expanded the proceeding and compelled Respondents to incur the unnecessary expense of filing their court-ordered response.
    I'm not sure why Arizona in particular seems to be attracting all the "I didn't lose" crazies. Something in the water? Maybe they need to drain the Lake.

    This is extra delightful because the guy was running for AG so you'd think he'd like, not lie to the courts and skip a bunch of steps given that he wants to be the top attorney in the state?

    If I'm not mistaken, Arizona is the other state notably attracting retirees. Not saying old people are crazy but they statistically skew towards one party, emboldening them.

    Interesting take. Incidentally, Abe Hamadeh was born in 1991, so if you're right he's figured that out and is exploiting the elderly. So, excellent choice for AG :P

    There are two things noteworthy about the sentence Enrique Tarrio, Proud Boys leader, is looking at in court today.

    One is the magnitude. Prosecution is asking for thirty-three years in prison. Years. Not months. Years.

    And the second is he wasn't even there. Tarrio was found guilty and is being sentenced for being the riot's effective ringleader. Tarrio is looking at seditious conspiracy, also known as "attempting to overthrow the fairly and legally elected government". Tarrio's lawyer has brought up that he wasn't physically there in trial, and he was convicted anyway, because we have phones people, you can lead something without being on-site, it happens all the time.

    Tarrio is facing the longest sentence of any murderous insurrectionist, but he does not do so alone. At least four other members are looking at sentences past 20 years. They are Joe Biggs, Ethan Nordean, Zachary Rehl and Dominic Pezzola.

    Another thing noteworthy about the trial?

    It was Donald Trump’s words, it was his motivation, it was his anger that caused what occurred on Jan. 6
    Tarrio's lawyer said this. I mean, it's likely the prosecution said some things about Trump too, but Tarrio, in court, used "Trump made me do it" as a defense. Of course, as we're talking about a 33-year prison sentence request, it's clear that didn't help much.

    "Using his powerful platform, Tarrio has repeatedly and publicly indicated that he has no regrets about what he helped make happen on January 6"
    -- prosecutors during their arguments for a 33-year sentence

    To put the 33-year sentence into context, Tarrio is 39. Even assuming good behavior/parole, he could be in prison until he collects Social Security.

    BREAKING: Sentencing for Tarrio delayed due to currently unspecified emergency. UPDATE: The judge is sick, not a bomb threat.

    AP says, the judge became sick. Might not be malicious.
