May 18 - qanon shaman lawyer....claims his client and jan 6 rioters are short bus people

The Missouri-based lawyer representing Jacob Chansley (AKA the “QAnon Shaman”) has offered a highly … unorthodox defense of his client and others who have been charged in connection with the storming of the U.S. Capitol on January 6th


Attorney Albert Watkins gave an interview to Talking Points Memo as the outlet reported on several of the legal arguments that the alleged Capitol rioters have used to address the federal charges they face

One of the tactics it is widely believed their attorneys will use is the “Trump defense” — the argument that the accused rioters were compelled to violent criminal action because of Donald Trump’s election lies and their belief that they were carrying out the former president’s will


image So far, invoking Trump has not seen a whole lot of success as a legal defense, though TPM noted that the final implications have yet to be determined as hundreds of cases play out

Watkins argued that “legally, these are unprecedented cases,” and as for Trump’s influence, “there is going to necessarily be a legal compulsion to address that reality as part of an evaluation of culpability"


image Watkins also spoke about how charged insurrectionists would reach for mitigating factors in their arguments in order to distinguish them from the Proud Boys or the Oath Keepers. This led to him offering an … unfiltered opinion about the mental capacity of the alleged insurrectionists, including his client.


From TPM:






image Watkins, the “Q Shaman” Jacob Chansley’s attorney, said his client had Asperger’s syndrome and indicated that Chansley’s mental state — and the impact of Trump’s “propaganda” efforts — would play a role in his case.

“A lot of these defendants — and I’m going to use this colloquial term, perhaps disrespectfully — but they’re all fu*king short-bus people,” Watkins told TPM

“These are people with brain damage, they’re fu*king retarded, they’re on the goddamn spectrum.

“But they’re our brothers, our sisters, our neighbors, our coworkers — they’re part of our country. These aren’t bad people, they don’t have prior criminal history. fu*k, they were subjected to four-plus years of goddamn propaganda the likes of which the world has not seen since fu*king Hitler.”

There's no way he really said that. He might've said it in his head. I gotta find the video for this ��.

Part of justice being served is these fools having their lawyer defend them by presenting them as retards????

this was cut out from tpm's post

A few weeks after his arrest for allegedly storming the Capitol on Jan. 6, the man known as the “QAnon Shaman,” Jacob Chansley, floated an idea that dozens of others have tried — that Trump himself deserved some of the blame for his actions.

Chansley’s attorney wrote that his client had been consistent “in his a*sertion that but for the actions and the words of the President, he would not have appeared in Washington, DC to support the President and, but for the specific words of the then-President during his January 6, 2021 speech, the Defendant would not have walked down Pennsylvania Avenue and would not have gone into the U.S. Capitol Building.”

That argument did not work.

In a memo explaining his order to keep Chansley detained pending trial, U.S. District Judge Royce C. Lamberth said it wasn’t necessary to question Chansley’s sincerity.

“Even taking defendant’s claim at face value, it does not persuade the Court that defendant would not pose a danger to others if released,” Lamberth wrote. “If defendant truly believes that the only reason he participated in an a*sault on the U.S. Capitol was to comply with President Trump’s orders, this shows defendant’s inability (or refusal) to exercise his independent judgment and conform his behavior to the law.”

Nonetheless, the so-called “Trump defense” continues to resurface as alleged participants in the Capitol riot wend their way through the legal system.
