Chansley, who says he’s been in solitary since being arrested, said he was never violent inside the Capitol. He says his participation was “not an attack on this country” … an interesting argument, given the images of him in the Senate Chamber.
He also says he’s still loyal to Trump, despite being overlooked for a pardon. He makes it clear … he did what he did at the former President’s behest.
Chansley’s been behind bars since January 9. He asked to be released from jail pending trial, but prosecutors objected, calling him a danger to the community.
