One of the rioters during the attack on the Capitol congressional headquarters faces 8 federal charges for what he did during the attack that took place in January 2021.
According to CNN, the US jury, who sat in the chair of former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, and put his feet on her desk, during the storming of the Capitol building, was convicted of 8 federal crimes.
The authority convicted the US citizen, Richard Barnett, on charges including entering a restricted area, staying in it with a deadly or dangerous weapon, and obstructing official procedures.
The network indicated that Barnett is scheduled to be sentenced in early May, provided that he remains under house arrest with a monitor placed on his ankle until the date of the trial, noting that the accused may face a penalty of up to 20 years in prison as a result of these charges.--
– The “Capitol Attack” investigation committee recommends banning Trump from running for public office
The final parliamentary committee investigation concluded that former President Donald Trump should not be allowed to run for any public office again because he incited his supporters to rebel.-
The recommendation came at the top of a list of proposals in the report aimed at ensuring that the riots that took place in the Capitol building, which Trump was accused of inciting in a failed attempt to remain in power after losing the 2020 presidential election, would not be repeated.
In the foreword to the report, committee chair Benny Thompson said, “Our country has come too far for a defeated president to turn himself into a successful tyrant by turning against our democratic institutions and inciting violence.”
