Prosecutors says Capitol rioters intended to ’capture and assassinate’ officials

Federal prosecutors said in court filing Thursday that the rioters at the Capitol intended ’to capture and assassinate elected officials.’ This came as prosecutors in a filing asked a judge to detain Jacob Chansley, the Arizona man and QAnon conspiracy theorist photographed wearing horns as he stood at the desk of VP Pence in the chamber. Chansley is due to appear in federal court on Friday.

"Federal prosecutors in a document filed Thursday said that they believe the pro-Trump mob that stormed the U.S. Capitol aimed to "capture and assassinate" elected officials and argued that the man who was seen wearing a horned headdress and face paint should be denied bail. " So they dont have any actual evidence that they wanted to kill officials? It's justwhat the prosecutors THINK happened?

MS M: Orange Man is fear mongering and dividing us. Also the M SM: THE OTHER SIDE WANTS TO MURDER YOU!!! I haven't seen any videos of anyone even looking angry, let alone look like they were on a mission "to kill" anyone. It was done by a bunch of LARPing dumdums, smiling & trying to get pictures of themselves doing dumdum sheet for their dum ace social media pages (like all these social media dummies now).

Since when did Newsvoice start citing Mad magazine? Because this story made me laugh so hard I thought I was going to wet myself. Assassins? A guy dressed like a Viking may need a mental health evaluation but it doesn't make him a revolutionary in some coup attempt. Evidently the prosecutors for DC know nothing about how coup d'etats actually work.

Where's all the delusional trump supporters here? C'mon. I got my popcorn ready. Where's all the "this was antifa!" And " this was the evil radical left wing dems". Plus, they've gotta turn against fox now cuz even fox is reporting it wasn't antifa. I think I just saw a pig fly by my window.

I am not a Trump supporter and I do not condone what they did, but this is outrageous. So if you see a guy with a gun, a prosecutor can have him arrested because the prosecutor "thought" he was going to do harm... Now that's foul. You can't prosecute someone on what ifs..

If they wanted to, they would have. Do you honestly think that they would bring a truckload of guns and bombs but not use them. Ridiculous assertions from the left.

He is a fraud. Him and his friend were debunked by true Patriots. He peddles lies and pretends to be in the right side. His friend tried to say he was actually Q and was 100% proven wrong. Also it's funny over 3 months ago Patriot you tube channel were all taken down yet his still remained 🤔. I smell a plant

We have a country that finds you quilty and you then prove your innocents. We have media and district attorney that can read minds and know what you are going to do before you do it. Verbal threats are not actions. Structures bult to intimidate and create fear does not mean they're going to be used. These actions and words could be used to get the attention and be heard. The investigation has determined the IED found were there for the inauguration. Not sure how that was determined, my guess they had timers. The rioters appeared to break the law and should be tried for appropriate crimes and if guilty punished appropriately. Congress is all about they're oath to the constitution so let us see it used when it comes to the rights of the accused. They're innocent until proven guilty by a jury of their peers. We have already seen a kangaroo court in action. Let the investigation be completed and let proper authorities do their jobs before making judgement.

i’d assume that a mob who was chanting “hang mike pence”, that brought a hangman’s noose, and one that was armed was in fact intending to kill politicians without any evidence

Here is what I saw: a bounch of desperate people that had believed the lie that the election was stolen, go protest a bit too fervently towards the capitol, where they found to their surprise that police presence was not enough to contain them... so they thought they could be heroes and ended up pushing through and getting scaringly close to menace terrified lawmakers. This turned into double tragedy: 6 people lost their lives and American democracy was desecrated in front of the world watching with incredulity All while the liar that has caused this was excited hoping this would keep is hopes alive He must pay for the consequences of his actions

When BLM comes to murder you it’s okay because your life doesn’t matter. When some protesters cause a minor inconvenience to the government, they make up stories about pipe bombs and have you thrown in jail for as long as possible. Your life doesn’t matter, only politicians lives matter.

TODAY: US TENSIONS GROW AS CHINA SAYS NEWSVOICE AND OTHER SNOWFLAKE MEDIA make more basement journalism claims! I came to NewsVoice to read neutral opinions or real investigative sourced journalism! NewsVoice has neither! This platform will be a sinking ship like twatter , gaagle and Youdoomed! NewsVoice has become very unfair to the readers that built their base. These stories that are posted are gossip like the “National Enquirer” published back in the day. NewsVoice should at least mandate drug testing before they hire and random testing to current employees!
