Kentucky Man in Viral Capitol Riot Video Nabbed by FBI

https://www.thedailybeast.com/kentucky-man-damon-beckley-in-viral-video-from-capitol-riot-nabbed-by-fbi

Kentucky man who appeared in a viral video vowing to “take all of these traitors down” as he took part in last week’s Capitol riot has been arrested by the FBI. The FBI in Louisville announced the arrest of Damon Beckley late Saturday. Beckley has been charged with unlawful entry of a restricted building and disorderly conduct on Capitol grounds. His first court appearance is set for Jan. 19. After Beckley made waves with his furious comments against Mike Pence and pledges to “start a revolution” from the Capitol Building, he reportedly went into hiding. Local news station WDRB spoke to him days after the violence and reported that he’d stressed that he only went inside the Capitol to check on a friend and hadn’t caused any destruction. He also reportedly deleted his Facebook and removed the SIM card from his phone, believing that would prevent authorities from tracking him down.

Nothing more at link, except pix of a tweet.

11. More here.



Louisville WDRB link

Beckley identified himself in a now-viral interview outside the Capitol while an angry mob of President Donald Trump supporters continued to storm the building.

"Vice President Pence, my name is Damon Michael Beckley, and I do not appreciate one bit this situation you caused here, sir!" he said, in part, during the interview. "We're not putting up with this tyrannical rule. If we're going to come back here and start a revolution and take all of these traitors out, which is what should be done, then we will!"

snip

WDRB News first met Beckley at a Jan. 2 protest outside U.S. Sen. Mitch McConnell's Louisville home. There, he identified himself as the founder of a group called DC Under Siege, which business records filed with the Kentucky Secretary of State's office show was registered on Dec. 10, 2020.

Outside McConnell's home, Beckley told the crowd he'd be in Washington on Jan. 6 to protest "corrupt" politicians who had counted the votes to make Joe Biden president.

FBI arrests man from Louisville who entered US Capitol during riot
WDRB TV - Louisville

Jan 17, 2021

Link: https://www.wdrb.com/news/fbi-arrests-man-from-louisville-who-entered-us-capitol-during-riot/article_9dff8ffc-5863-11eb-b21c-5b982889fe2a.html

(snip)
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The FBI on Saturday arrested a man from Louisville who told WDRB News he entered the U.S. Capitol during the Jan. 6 riot.

Damon Beckley was arrested in Cub Run, Kentucky, and charged with unlawful entry of a restricted building and disorderly conduct on Capitol grounds, according to a tweet from FBI Louisville. The tweet says Beckley remains in custody and will appear in federal court Tuesday, Jan. 19.

Beckley identified himself in a now-viral interview outside the Capitol while an angry mob of President Donald Trump supporters continued to storm the building.

Quite a damning quote here:

"They're not going to change their corruption just because we're out here hollering about it," he said, in part. "We're going to have to go in there and pull these people out, because they're not just going to leave, OK."


The FBI caught him down in the sticks way south of Louisville near Nolin Lake and Mammoth Cave.

I see he also shaved off his beard for the FBI party......
