A case filed by the Justice Secretariat in court demands the continued detention of Jacob Chansley, this conspiratorial QAnon pictured shirtless in horned shaman attire during the riot in Vice President Mike Pence’s office.
Strong evidence, including Chansley’s own words and actions on Capitol Hill, shows that the purpose of the Capitol rioters was to capture and assassinate elected officials of the United States government, write prosecutors of the Jan.6 assault.
They said Mr Chansley, 33, left a note for Mr Pence’s attention on the Senate dais where the Deputy Speaker had stood a few minutes earlier, on which was written:
It’s only a matter of time, justice is coming.

During the day of chaos in the heart of American democracy, elected officials had to go into hiding because they feared for their lives, and at least five people, including a police officer, were killed.
Authorities prosecuted rioters, including a man who waved the Confederate flag in the Capitol, another man who wore a sweater
Camp Auschwitz and an Olympic swimming champion.
Mr Chansley is scheduled to appear in court on Friday. He is a regular drug user, prosecutors say, and likely has mental health problems.
Chansley has spoken openly about his belief that he is an alien, a higher entity, and that he is here on Earth to ascend to another reality.
Prosecutors request that he be kept in detention because of
high risk of flight and the danger it represents for the community.
Mr. Chansley is a supporter of QAnon, the far-right conspiratorial movement that saw the Capitol intrusion as a triumph.
Social networks have started to attack his followers, according to whom Donald Trump is waging a secret war against a sect of leftist pedophile satanists.
Mr. Trump was indicted on Wednesday for
incitement to insurgency, for encouraging his supporters to march on Congress.
More than 20,000 National Guard troops have been mobilized in Washington, whose center was locked down early Friday, for fear of further violence during the inauguration of President-elect Joe Biden on January 20.
