WASHINGTON: U.S. prosecutors now believe that supporters of President Donald Trump planned to “capture and kill 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 called for the arrest of Arizona Jacob Chancely, a law-abiding conspiracy theorist shown on Vice President Mike Pence’s desk in a horned shaman-clad riot.
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.
Authorities have filed charges against rioters, including a man flying a protective flag inside the building, a man wearing a “Camp Auschwitz” sweatshirt and a gold medalist in the U.S. Olympic swimming. ۔ Chanceley is due to appear in court on Friday.
