Capitol rioter: I am a Democrat

A Maryland man who pleaded guilty to joining the Jan. 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol says he is a registered Democrat who wasn’t a supporter of former President Donald Trump and found himself at the scene as an “accidental tourist.” Prosecutors counter that he appeared to be proud of his actions that day.

Robert Reeder, 55, took a train to Washington, D.C., to hear Trump’s speech on Jan. 6 because he had “nothing better to do,” his lawyer said in a court filing Wednesday. Reeder made a “spur of the moment decision and regrettable mistake” when he attended the rally and followed a crowd of people to the Capitol after the speech, the attorney wrote.

“Mr. Reeder is not politically active, is not and has never been a member of any right-wing or anti-government or extremist group and has, unfortunately, been publicly grouped with many others (whose) views he abhors,” defense attorney Robert Bonsib wrote.

Reeder recorded himself breaching the Capitol twice, videotaped an officer being assaulted and bragged that he “battle(d) the police,” a prosecutor said in a court filing Friday.

**********************************************

Many democrats went to the Jan. 6th rally to make trouble and start a riot to hurt President Trump.

Poor Mr Reeder must have a very boring life. 

Accidental tourist...

nah I'll protest, don't care what it's about.

 

:wacko:

Of course Reeder is lying to try to get a reduced sentence and it did work to a degree:  3 months in jail instead of  6 months as the prosecution asked for. 

What is so humorous is that there are Republicans that believe these clowns.
