The events from 6th January are still haunting.

A joint session of Congress convened to formally count the Electoral College votes and certify Joe Biden’s election win. Lawmakers were forced to shelter in place and evacuate as pro-Trump rioters broke into the Capitol Building in the U.S.
The scenes were shocking indeed.
Destroying things and chanting “stop the steal!”
The rioters quickly went viral on social media.
There are photos of them taking objects, such as the lectern. Nancy Pelosi began circulating online.
Things got bad to worse.
The world watched as more and more rioters spilled into the Capitol and clashed with police.
Even Trump involved himself.
You’ve caused this, get on TV immediately and stop it – before people start being killed. https://t.co/59dqsiXEaK

The former president was told to order his supporters to stand down.
He rather issued some half-hearted tweets.
He told the rioters that the police and law enforcement was on their side.
That resulted in Trump’s ban from all social media platforms.
As control was regained in the Capitol and the clean-up began, an impeachment investigation was launched into the former president for his role in the riots.
The aftermath of the event was unbelievable.
As the months have passed, more and more rioters have been named, shamed, and reprimanded for their actions.
Including Jacob Chansley himself.
A.K.A. QAnon Shaman.
Chansley, who was pictured wearing a Viking hat with fur and horns, has been brought to justice for his actions.

One of the longest sentences given so far in connection with the events was handed to him by a judge.
Here’s what people had to say about it:
On November 10, 2021, Chansley appeared in front of the court and was sentenced for his actions.
Chansley was one of the first to enter the building and was armed with a bullhorn.
An assistant U.S. attorney told the judge that they wouldn’t be here if the defendants had been peaceful.

“None of what happened on Jan. 6, 2021, was peaceful,” Paschall said.
Paschall also told the court how Chansley entered the Senate chamber shouting: “Times up, mother****ers’ is not peaceful, your honor.”

Addressing judge Lamberth before he was sentenced, Chansley said: “I believe in freedom with all my heart and soul.”
