WASHINGTON: U.S. prosecutors now believe that supporters of President Donald Trump planned to “arrest and assassinate elected officials” during a siege of the capital last week, according to a new court report.
A lawsuit filed by Justice Department attorneys late Thursday sought the arrest of Arizona Jacob Chanceley, a law-abiding conspiracy theorist wearing horned shamans on Vice President Mike Pence’s desk.
Regarding the January 6 siege, the prosecution said, “Strong evidence, including the chancellor’s own words and actions in the capital, supports the intention of the capital rioters to arrest and prosecute elected government officials in the United States.” I had to kill. ” He said the 33-year-old chancellor left a note for Pence in the Senate Chamber dice where the second-in-command stood a few minutes earlier, saying: “It’s just a matter of time, justice is coming.”
The filing gives further insight into the FBI’s investigation into the chaos at the heart of American democracy, in which elected officials feared for their lives and at least five people, including a police officer, were killed. The prosecution called for his detention because he was “a serious threat to the community and a threat.” Chanceley became a member of Kevin, a right-wing conspiracy theorist accused of fueling a section of Trump supporters in the capital.
