JAN. 6 VICTIM OF POLICE BRUTALITY AND PROSECUTORIAL MISCONDUCT: DC JAIL DENIES ACCESS TO EVIDENCE AND PUNISHES THOSE WHO KNOW TOO MUCH
Despite the fact that I did not attend the President’s speech on The Ellipse on January 6th, did not march to the Capitol, and was not at the Capitol the day of the Capitol riot, The Washington PostThe New York TimesCNNMSNBC and others have sought to baselessly link me to the illegal acts at the Capitol that day. Even the Washington Post reported that three different sources confirmed that I was not in a “War Room” in The Willard Hotel that was allegedly operating on January 6, but these legacy media outfits still want to accuse me of wrongdoing.
The main tactic that these fake news outlets have utilized to try to falsely tie me to the January 6th riot at the Capitol is “guilt by association.” The fact that I know and speak to President Donald Trump and that I have come into contact with members of either the Proud Boys or the Oath Keepers, proves nothing whatsoever.
Although I was subpoenaed by the January 6th Committee of the U.S. House, I responded to that subpoena by invoking my Fifth Amendment right not to answer questions or provide documents. I did this not because I have anything to hide, know anything about the illegal actions that day or have done anything wrong, but simply because I have first-hand experience with the House Democrats’ ability to take statements made under Oath that are innocuous, immaterial or irrelevant and twist them into a crime.
Because of this relentless effort to smear me, many of my own advisors and lawyers have urged me to remain silent about the injustices and lack of due process that those who have been arrested have been subjected to. With the level of physical abuse, lack of medical attention and treatment, and inhumane conditions the January 6th detainees are victims of, I cannot remain silent.
Lawsuits across the country are settling for millions of dollars in cases of police brutality during the summer riots in 2020. $14M jury award for protesters, dozens more still pending.
How quickly we forget that in our very own District of Columbia, during a presidential transition just one election cycle earlier, in 2017 a mob of leftists who during President Trump’s inauguration threw acid at citizensbricks at police officer’s heads, and—armed with crowbars—organized to ‘disrupt the peaceful transition of power’ — were awarded $1.6M in damages for pain and suffering caused by both federal and DC police. This is just another example of the two-tiered justice system in which those on the left commit atrocious crimes but are not prosecuted while those on the right are prosecuted, vilified by the fake news media, and
