The Capitol rioter who was pictured smirking together with his boot on prime of Nancy Pelosi’s desk in the course of the Jan. 6 siege, screamed about it being “not honest” that he’s being held in jail at a courtroom listening to on Thursday.
Richard Barnett, a 60-year-old accused rioter from Arkansas, yelled about being locked after Choose Christopher Cooper set his subsequent courtroom date for Could in the course of the listening to in federal courtroom in Washington, DC, a neighborhood Fox affiliate reported.
“I’ve been right here a very long time … one other month … It’s not honest,” he yelled, in response to the report.
“You’re letting everybody else out … I need assistance,” he added.
Barnett, who bragged to the press about breaking into Home Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s workplace in the course of the siege — and swiping a chunk of her mail — was ordered to stay behind bars pending trial by Chief Choose Beryl Howell in late January.
Howell teed off on Barnett in that listening to, calling him “brazen, entitled and harmful” — and questioning his intelligence.
“I don’t know the way good Mr. Barnett is, however he’s actually a bragger. Bragging to regulation enforcement about what he’s achieved to cowl his tracks … is just not a wise factor to do,” she stated.
Barnett faces as much as greater than a decade behind bars for his function within the riot.
