The Gateway Pundit has obtained hours of footage filed as evidence in federal court during J6 defendant Kenneth Joseph Thomas’ trial that was presented to jurors in a case heralded by defense attorneys as “the best J6 verdict so far.”
Thomas was charged with 12 felony offenses, including Civil disorder, Obstruction of an Official proceeding, Assaulting, Resisting, or Impeding Certain Officers, Entering and Remaining in a Restricted Building or Grounds, Disorderly and Disruptive Conduct in a Restricted Building or Grounds, Engaging in Physical Violence on Capitol Grounds, Disorderly Conduct in a Capitol Building, and committing an Act of Physical Violence in the Capitol Grounds or Building for his role during the Capitol riot. If found guilty, Thomas could have been sentenced 30 years in prison.
The U.S. Department of Justice claimed Thomas was captured on Metropolitan Police Department body-worn camera punching and striking officers with his fist and forearm. Law enforcement officers claimed Thomas “was one of the first to come in and start hitting [and] pushing officers on the line.”
On June 1, a DC jury exonerated Thomas of all violent offenses.
He was found not guilty of obstruction, not guilty of Assault, Not guilty of physical violence on restricted grounds, not guilty of disorderly conduct on Capitol grounds, and not guilty of committing physical violence on Capitol Grounds.
Defense attorney John Pierce, the founder of the National Constitutional Law Union who represents Thomas and over 30 other J6 for defendants, vows to “knock out” the other charges on appeal.
