NO Regrets: He’s Standing With TRUMP!

( – Jacob Chansley, who became known as the “Q-Anon Shaman” after his involvement in the Capitol riot on Jan. 6, wants to reverse his original guilty plea after serving 27 months in prison.

Chansley became a nationally recognized figure overnight after photos and videos of him were shown on television and all over the internet on January 6, showing Chansley shirtless, wearing a fur hat with horns, and wearing red, white, and blue warpaint while at the podium in the Senate Chambers on January 6.

After his arrest, six charges, and a trial, Chansley pleaded guilty and served 27 months in prison out of a sentence of 41 months.

Almost immediately after the events at the Capitol, Chansley began apologizing after his arrest, stating in jail in February 2021 through his attorney that he deeply regretted entering the Capitol, was sorry, and that he “should not have been there.” He also apologized after pleading guilty.

Now Chansley states that what he really regrets is having pled guilty in the first place, stating in a recent interview that he wants to return to court to request a reversal of the guilty plea. Reversing the plea means Chansley must convince the judge his attorney represented him ineffectively, risking another trial. 

Contrary to arguments made by attorney Albert Watkins, Chansley said he’s not mentally ill, delusional, or depressed; that he wasn’t “duped by Trump”; and that he never “denounced” Qanon. 

In March, House Speaker Kevin McCarthy handed over 40,000 hours of unreleased footage from January 6 to Tucker Carlson, who aired some of it on Fox News. Some footage showed Chansley being escorted around the building by security and then let inside the chambers.

Footage released by Carlson also showed that the police officer Brian Sicknick, who the media claimed was killed after being beaten up by protesters, was recorded after the incident and appeared uninjured. Sicknick died of a heart attack the following day, on January 7, 2021, and not from injuries sustained at the Capitol.
