Prosecutors Are Claiming To Have ‘Strong Evidence’ That Capitol Rioters Intended To ‘Capture And Assassinate’ Officials

Federal prosecutors filed a document that said they believe the pro-Trump mob that stormed the U.S. Capitol aimed to “capture and assassinate” elected officials and argued that the man who was seen wearing a horned headdress and face paint should be denied bail, according to Fox News.

Jacob Chansley was arrested and charged in Arizona on Saturday.

Chansley was charged with knowingly breaking into the Capitol building and its grounds, along with violent entry and disorderly conduct.

“The crimes charged in the indictment involve active participation in an insurrection attempting to violently overthrow the United States Government. By Chansley’s own admissions to the FBI and news media, the insurrection is still in progress and he intends to continue participating,” the filing reads.

“Strong evidence, including Chansley’s own words and actions at the Capitol, supports that the intent of the Capitol rioters was to capture and assassinate elected officials in the United States Government. Chansley left a note on the Senate Chamber dais, where Vice President Mike Pence had been presiding over the session just minutes before, warning ‘it’s only a matter of time, justice is coming,'” the document continued.

“When questioned as to the meaning of that statement, Chansley went on a lengthy diatribe describing current and past United States political leaders as infiltrators, specifically naming Vice President Mike Pence, former President Barack Obama, former Senator Hillary Clinton and U.S. President-elect Joe Biden as infiltrators involved in various types of wrongdoing,” prosecutors added. “Although he stated his note was not a threat, the Government strongly disagrees.”

Chansley said he would return to D.C. on an. 20 if he were able to.

“I’ll still go, you better believe it,” he told the FBI. “For sure I’d want to be there, as a protestor, as a protestor, f—–’ a.”

“Some say the riots were caused by Antifa,” House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., said. “There’s absolutely no evidence of that, and conservatives should be the first to say so.”

“In an interview with NBC News before his arrest, Chansley boasted about his involvement in the mob that infiltrated the Capitol, driving Congress people and staffers to flee in fear of their lives,” the government filing against Chansley reads.

“‘The fact that we had a bunch of our traitors in office hunker down, put on their gas masks and retreat into their underground bunker, I consider that a win,'” it quotes Chansley as saying. “Chansley stated that he drove to Washington, D.C. as a part of a group effort, with other ‘patriots’ from Arizona, at the request of the President that all ‘patriots’ come to D.C. on January 6, 2021.”

More from Fox News:

McCarthy’s been one of the Republicans who lays the blame for the storming of the Capitol at President Trump’s feet.

At least one left-wing activist, John Sullivan, was arrested in the wake of the riots after egging on pro-Trump rioters. He told Fox News he was at the riot to “document” it. But almost all of those arrested for storming the Capitol were public supporters of Trump, like Chansley.
