Matthew Bledsoe on January 6th. Bledsoe was found guilty by a jury of his ‘peers’ this week. Many of those ‘peers’ admitted they could not remain “impartial”.
THE END OF AMERICA–
** Insurrectionist David Hogg interrupted and obstructed an official US House hearing on Wednesday in Washington DC. Hogg shut down the hearing while he screamed at Republican lawmakers about racism and guns. David was not arrested for obstructing this official proceeding.
** On Monday all charges were dropped against CBS employees for uber-leftist Colbert’s late-night show who were arrested after trespassing after hours into the US Capitol and then harassing and threatening Republican lawmakers. Colbert’s crew also harassed and mocked family members of January 6th political prisoners who have been held in prison for over a year without trial. The Biden-appointed US Attorney Matthew Graves, who let the Colbert crew walk scot-free, is the same attorney persecuting Trump supporters and January 6 defendants.
** On Thursday a Washington DC jury convicted Trump supporter Matthew Bledsoe on the felony charge of “obstruction of an official proceeding” and four other misdemeanor charges. Bledsoe now faces up to 20 years in prison — more time than many rapists and killers.
Matthew Bledsoe spent 22 minutes inside the US capitol “parading” and “remaining in restricted grounds.”
Now he will learn his lesson.
Matthew Bledsoe faces 20 years in prison for parading in US Capitol after police officers welcomed the vast majority of the protesters into the building.
WATN Memphis reported:
An Olive Branch, Mississippi, man was found guilty Thursday on charges he faced for the Jan. 6, 2021, breach at the U.S. Capitol.
The U.S. Department of Justice said Matthew Bledsoe, 38, formerly of Cordova, Tennessee, was convicted of felony charge – obstruction of an official proceeding, and four misdemeanor counts – entering and remaining in a restricted building or grounds; disorderly and disruptive conduct in a Capitol Building; disorderly conduct in a Capitol Building, and parading, demonstrating, or picketing in a Capitol Building.
Prosecutors said in the days following the November 2020 election, Bledsoe began posting about the results on social media. They said on Jan. 6, 2021, he went to a rally near the Ellipse, then headed to the Capitol, where he “illegally entered the grounds shortly after 2:13 p.m.” They said Bledsoe scaled a wall on the Upper Northwest Terrace and went into the Capitol building through a fire door at the Senate Wing.
According to prosecutors, Bledsoe yelled, “In the Capitol. This is our house. We pay for this s—. Where’s those pieces of s—at?” They said he then climbed a statue and was outside the corridor to the House Chamber near the Speaker’s Lobby. They said he spent about 22 minutes inside.
Prosecutors said Bledsoe returned within two hours, lingering near the East Rotunda Doors as law enforcement was securing the building and grounds.
They said Bledsoe continued to post on social media and message family and friends about what happened on Jan. 6. He was arrested days later on Jan. 13, 2021.
Bledsoe is set to be sentenced on Oct. 21, 2022. He faces up to 20 years in prison and fines on the felony charge, and up to three years in prison and fines for the misdemeanor charges.
Since Jan. 6, 2021, the Department of Justice said more than 850 people have been arrested in nearly all 50 states for crimes related to the Capitol breach. More than 260 have been charged with assaulting or impeding law enforcement.
If you are a leftist, you can burn down cities and destroy billions of dollars in property and face no punishment.
If you are a Trump supporter, you will face 20 years in prison for “obstructing an official proceeding” and parading in the US Capitol – something leftists do nearly every day without fear of persecution.
