Last week, a group of mobsters thought they were going to stage a coup in D.C., fly back home, and go about their normal lives. But, Aht! Aht! Quite a few of them have been arrested and are now facing time in jail, including Richard Barnett, the man photographed with his feet on Nancy Pelosi’s desk.
On Tuesday, the 60-year-old of Gravette, Arkansas, appeared before the U.S. Magistrate Judge Erin Wiedemann in Fayetteville to officially hear the charges brought against him. One of the charges is unlawfully entering a restricted area with a lethal weapon — a stun gun.
Barnett is also charged with disorderly conduct and theft of public property. If convicted he could be sentenced to more than 11 years in federal prison.
After the shenanigans on Capitol Hill, Barnett told KFSM he was looking for the bathroom when he saw the door to Pelosi’s office was open, according to Fox 10.
“I sat down here in my desk. I’m a taxpayer. I’m a patriot. That ain’t her desk — we loaned her that desk,” he reportedly said.
“And she ain’t appreciating the desk, so I thought I would sit down and appreciate the desk.”
As you know, Congress is currently in the process of impeaching President Trump for the second time. It is the belief of many that he incited the riot that took place with his speech that he gave just before events unfolded.
Gotta do the time, big fella!
