Shaman seeking pardon

https://www.kmov.com/news/qanon-shaman-hires-st-louis-attorney-al-watkins-seeks-pardon-for-following-trumps-invitation/article_2008074e-56b7-11eb-91d3-6f9c640ddaf4.html

Jake Angeli, whose legal name is Jacob Anthony Chansley, was taken into custody Saturday in Arizona. An indictment unsealed Tuesday in Washington charged the 33-year-old with civil disorder, obstruction of an official proceeding, disorderly conduct in a restricted building, and demonstrating in a Capitol building. It’s unclear whether the new charges are felonies or misdemeanors. Chansley was previously charged with two misdemeanors stemming from the violent riot — entering a restricted building without lawful authority and violent entry and disorderly conduct on Capitol grounds.

Snip

Angeli "accepted President Trump's invitation to walk down Pennsylvania Avenue to the Capitol," Watkins said in a statement. “Mr. Chansley is an American; he served honorably in the U.S. military. He has zero criminal history. He is a lover of nature, routinely practices meditation, is an active practicer of yoga and eats only organic food. He took seriously the countless messages of President Trump. He believed in President Trump. Like tens of millions of other Americans, Chansley felt -- for the first time in his life -- as though his voice was being heard.”

Watkins said Angeli played no part in the violence and surrendered peacefully, warranting a pardon.

“My client had heard the oft-repeated words of President Trump,” Mr. Watkins continued. “The words and invitation of a president are supposed to mean something. Given the peaceful and compliant fashion in which Mr. Chansley comported himself, it would be appropriate and honorable for the president to pardon Mr. Chansley and other like-minded, peaceful individuals who accepted the president’s invitation with honorable intentions.”

1. Did he start eating or maybe is he going to starve to death? I don't think so.

25. More likely they just told him here, this is organic. It's what I would have done.

Who does he think he is? Making special food orders? It's ridiculous, and yet, we hear he got what he wanted. JFC

6. He refused to get an Anthrax vaccine

He probably got a general or a medical discharge.

He is also a "failed actor" and was recently evicted from his apartment. He lives with his mommy.

29. I also heard him

 

claiming that he was part of a "Super Soldier" program.

I assume that means he's also Wolverine.

3. Chansley was an accessory to the Incitement of Insurrection for which Trump has been impeached

Since the Constitution specifically excepts "Cases of Impeachment", can he actually be pardoned?

4. mitch has trump in a box and he knows it.....

because mitch has said he "could" support conviction, that was a clear message for trump to be on his best behavior until he is out of office.

That doesn't include pardoning those that attacked the capitol. If he thumbs his nose at mitch and creates anger through pardons or other actions, mitch could very well off him after he is out of office.

But trump doesn't usually act in his own best interests, and those still left advising are the worst rwnj's.

We'll see what he does. this has gone way too random to call because his mind is gone and those around him are corrupt.

17. Trump could still do it as a last middle finger to everyone.

But, by pardoning these people, he's admitting he's guilty of inciting the attack.

If Trump pardons these terrorists...

The pardon power is way way too easy to abuse.

Presidential pardons don’t count in the case of insurrection and impeachment - both of which happened.

No pardon for you!
