  1. The real question is why is he still free after breaking in the Capitol, all those mobsters shall be identified and arrested for insurrection and jailed for minimum 20 years. Not exposed as anything of value to be interviewed…

    • Why would they be arrested for insurrection? The police let them in. There have been many occupations and protests in capital buildings. It’s the police that were the violent ones here.


      • The police didn’t let him in. He broke into a Federal building and he’s going to jail for a long time, as he should. The guy is obviously mentally unstable. He’s got Native American stuff on his wall and then he pulls this crap? He doesn’t even know who he is. He’s confused!

      • That may be one of the dumbest, most ridiculous assertions I’ve ever heard on an online forum. “the police were the violent ones here.” Give me a break you f’in moron. I’ve heard literally NO ONE say that until you. What a joker you are!


  2. He is a imposter… His bio was pulled from Backstage for being a actor, his youtube was pulled and also his facebook… Come on now it takes alot of energy to do something like that and all at once to cover the tracks..


    • I agree. I know tons of paid actors on Backstage that I can entice to commit felonies on my behalf. Actually paying one to sneak into the Supreme Court and take a crap at Alito’s old desks ::sarc:: I’m sure that’s the most logical explanation, rather than applying Occam’s razor and calling a spade “spade”.


  3. Plusieurs morts, et pourtant pour une cause n’est pas juste!
    – pandaison pour Jake Angel
    – perpétuité pour Trump
    – 1 à 5 ans prison pour les malfaiteurs
    1,2,3 à juger.


  4. yes he is a Trump supporter and Biden is not a Pedo guy! come on!!!!! the greatest fraud in USA history! USA a banana republic! supporters by leftists brainwashing! Shame on you


  5. Well, he’s had his fifteen minutes of fame, now he’s gonna make someone a cute bitch in the big house. Maybe they’ll feed him something organic.


  6. Obviously these remarks by the misinformed sheep are the result of a planned couple of Democrats and Rino Trump haters. Flash forward to March 6th, 2023. House Speaker releases massive video dump aired on FOXNEWS’ Tucker Carlson exposing videos the January 6 Committee omitted during their Kangaroo Kourt proceedings. Seeing these unseen revelations makes it obvious that all is not what it seems from the fairy tale that the anti- Trump Committe would have the American People believe. Pure deception!
