The man who welcomed himself into House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s office during the Jan. 6 Capitol riot will be released from jail and await further court proceedings from his home.
A Washington, D.C. District judge on Tuesday deemed Richard Barnett, 60, not dangerous enough to be locked up any longer and ordered his release pending trial.
Just recently, a federal appeals court ruling has made it more difficult for the Justice Department to keep defendants jailed unless they are accused of assault or planning an attack.
Barnett was arrested two days after the insurrection in home state of Arkansas and was extradited to the D.C. District Court, which put him behind bars pending trial.
He has pleaded not guilty to seven criminal counts, and prosecutors say he could face up to six years or more in prison if convicted.
“Consider this a test,” Judge Christopher “Casey” told Barnett about his release, which will be electronically monitored, according to CNN.
Cooper also cited as concerns Barnett’s his outlandish behavior during the riot – which would include him putting his feet on Pelosi’s desk – and his possible adherence to QAnon conspiracy theories.
Barnett’s attorney Joseph D. McBride, appeared to suggest the possibility of a plea deal.
“As of now, we are awaiting further discovery from the government, and we are looking to proceed to trial,” McBride said. “Should an acceptable offer materialize between now and then, then we will give it due and proper consideration.”
Three Ashli Babbitt shooting witnesses no longer on FBI most wanted list
Three people who witnessed the shooting of Ashli Babbitt in the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021, no longer have their photos posted on the FBI’s most wanted page, The Epoch Times reports.
The three witnesses, labeled 310, 311 and 312, were scrubbed the evening of April 29, 2021, according to the Epoch Times investigation. The list now skips from 309 to 313.
When suspects are taken into custody, the FBI normally places “ARRESTED” on photos of them at the Jan. 6 riot.
The Department of Justice has not responded to Epoch Times’ request for comment about why the three witnesses were removed.
One of the witnesses removed from the FBI’s list includes a man who tried to give first aid to Babbitt as she was dying on the Capitol floor. Reporter Tayler Hansen said the witness is a photojournalist. Hansen claimed to have stood next to the man in the Capitol on Jan. 6.
“Right as she got shot, he was the only one that reacted, and he immediately reached for his medical bag,” Hansen told The Epoch Times. “He had a med bag on him, and started digging in it.”
Hansen explained: “He was trying to help Ashli throughout the whole thing. He was one of the people the cops told to stop rendering medical aid to her.”
Hansen applauded how the photojournalist handled the situation. “I’ve never seen anything like it,” he said. “He knew exactly what to do. He was the first one to react out of everybody,” he told Epoch, adding that the photojournalist covered riots in Portland, Ore., and Kenosha, Wisc.
Hansen also said another man who was removed from the FBI’s most wanted still works as a photographer.
Babbitt’s widow, Aaron, told The Epoch Times that he is questioning the FBI’s actions.
“I’d like an explanation as to why they’ve been removed,” Babbitt told the outlet. “If there’s nothing nefarious, then that shouldn’t be a problem. The silence is, and has been, deafening.”
BREAKING: Capitol Police Officer Who Killed Ashli Babbitt Did Not Cooperate With Internal Affairs or FBI, Was Never Interviewed By Capitol Police Before Being Cleared By DOJ
On January 6 2021, the unarmed US Air Force veteran Ashli Babbitt was shot in the neck and killed while she attempted to climb through a window into a hallway in the Capitol Building.
Before she was shot and killed, Ashli Babbitt was standing inside a room in the Capitol that was filled with “protesters” and armed law enforcment officers including heavily armed tactical officers. In the video below, officers can be seen standing in front the windows leading into the hallway were being broken by a few men inside the room. Curiously, instead of trying to stop the window breakers, the police officers who were standing between the protesters and the hallway into the Speakers Chambers where the armed Capitol Police Lt. Michael Byrd waited, they moved to the side and began to have what appears to be a casual converastion with each other. Ashli Babbitt approached the windows to the room where she was shot after the police officers conveniently moved away from the door, giving Office Byrd a clear shot at the non-violent, unarmed veteran.
So many questions still remain about what happened in that room, not the least of which is why are so many of the men who were in the same room as the now deceased Ashli Babbitt running around free, while Ashli Babbitt was shot dead for the crime of trying to leave that room? The biggest question of course, is why was Capitol Police Lt. Michael Byrd cleared of all criminal charges for her shooting death?
Now, a new stunning report by Real Clear Investigations on the murder of unarmed US Air Force veteran Ashli Babbitt inside the U.S. Capitol by Capitol Police Lt. Michael Byrd reveals that he was never formally interviewed by the D.C. Metropolitan Police before he was cleared of wrongdoing in her death.
Just the News reports – In an interview with the outlet, Babbitt family attorney Terry Roberts said he was surprised at how “skimpy” Byrd’s investigative file is.
“He didn’t provide any statement to [criminal] investigators, and they didn’t push him to make a statement,” Roberts also said.
Roberts’ claims appear to be backed up by MPD documents obtained by Judicial Watch, which confirm that Byrd “declined to provide a statement.”
An MPD spokesperson confirmed that Byrd did not cooperate with internal affairs or FBI agents.
“MPD did not formally interview Lt. Byrd. … He didn’t give a statement while under the U.S. Attorney’s Office investigation,” said D.C. MPD communications Director Kristen Metzger said.
Within four months of the shooting, Byrd had been cleared of any criminal wrongdoing by the Justice Department, which opted not to present evidence to a grand jury about one of the most high-profile police shootings in recent memory. Justice declared there was “not enough evidence” to conclude that Byrd violated Babbitt’s civil rights or acted recklessly.
