(TeaParty.org Exclusive) – According to a brand new report from the folks over at BizPacReview, the man who is now infamously known as the “QAnon Shaman,” due to the extremely bizarre attire he donned during the breach of the U.S. Capitol building back on January 6, has officially been sentenced to prison for a sentence of almost three and a half years.
Jacob Chansley, 34, who actually pled guilty back in September to one count of felony obstruction of an official proceeding, was handed a sentence of 41-months in prison, which thus far, is the longest sentence for any individual who has been arrested for participating in the Capitol riot thus far. He’s also required to pay a fine of $2,000 as part of the penalty.
“The jail time is purportedly the lowest the Ronald Reagan-appointed judge could go under federal sentencing guidelines,” the report said, adding, “Prosecutors were seeking a prison term of about 51 months under a charge that carried a maximum sentence of 20 years along with a $1 million fine.”
“The Department of Justice alleged that Chansley entered the Capitol building at 2:14 p.m. and eventually went onto the Senate floor, taking pictures at the dais. He was accused of saying ‘Mike Pence is a f—— traitor,’ and writing a note that read, “It’s Only A Matter of Time. Justice Is Coming!’,” Fox News stated in their report.
A total period of 36 months of supervised release will then follow the completed sentence. Chansley has been held in custody ever since January. Guess they aren’t going to count time already served as part of this sentence then are they?
“With his furry horned hat, 6-foot spear and bare tattooed chest, prosecutors described Chansley as the ‘public face of the Capitol riot’ in a sentencing memo…Prosecutors added that Chansley, who promoted the far-right QAnon conspiracy theory, used social media to spread ‘false information and hateful rhetoric’ that inflamed the riot,” NBC News said in their report on the sentencing.

Federal authorities have thus far charged over 600 people who participated in the storming of the Capitol. So far, 100 of them have pleaded primarily to misdemeanor charges. None of them have been charged with insurrection-related crimes.
“In an email to NBC News earlier this month, Chansley’s lawyer, Albert Watkins, ‘called prosecutors’ recommendation ‘willfully delusional’ and ‘shameful.’ He described Chansley as a ‘young, gentle man with zero criminal history and long standing mental health vulnerabilities,’” BPR stated in their report.
Chansley told sentencing Judge Royce Lamberth as part of a lengthy courtroom statement, “I am in no way, shape or form a dangerous criminal. I am not a violent man, I am not an insurrectionist, I am not a domestic terrorist. I’m a good man who broke the law, and I’m doing all I can to take responsibility for that.”
“My shamanic attire is designed to ward off evil spirits, not to scare people,” he explained. Well, you know, that part is still kind of weird, but hey, it takes all kinds of people to make the world go around, right?
“He wasn’t violent, he wasn’t destructive, he wasn’t a planner, he wasn’t an organizer,” his lawyer also said to the federal judge.
“I am nothing like these people that I have been incarcerated with,” Chansley told the judge making a reference to the repeat offenders in the facility. “They’re acting like they’re in the Holiday Inn while they’re incarcerated.”
Back in January, Watkins spoke with a media outlet where he said that “his client regrets very, very much having not just been duped by the President, but by being in a position where he allowed that duping to put him in a position to make decisions he should not have made.”
Chansley spoke with CBS News back in March where he stated that he was disappointed about not having received a pardon from President Donald Trump.

Now, the biggest issue with all of this is that Capitol Hill Police actually allowed Chansley into the Capitol building. Why is this man being charged for doing something that he was apparently given permission to do by the police who were supposed to be guarding the place and preventing folks from entering the building?
Could it possibly have been a setup to help the Democrats craft a narrative that conservatives are violent “terrorists” who want to overthrow the government? It’s possible. Heck, it’s likely.
A report from Gateway Pundit, “Jacob Chansley did not cause any violence, he listened to officers and he was let in the building by Capitol Hill police.”
“A video released in May revealed Capitol Police gave Chansley and several protesters the clearance to walk into the Capitol. This was all captured on video,” the report continued.
