“Biden’s Going To Be Our President” Capitol Riot Defendant Admits On Tape That Insurrection Failed

There are a lot of right-wing defenses of the attack on the U.S. Capitol Building. They include the claim that it was just a political protest, protected speech addressing the government to let elected representatives know the citizenry was unhappy with the way the 2020 election was conducted — not an effort to overthrow the government and prevent the duly-elected president-elect from taking office.

That falls apart somewhat when your alleged participants admit on tape that the failure of the attack means that the process will go on as planned.

As NBC reports, newly unsealed records have identified another defendant in the case, one Jerry Braun. Braun was arrested after an Uber driver contacted the FBI with a recording made by a camera on the dash of the vehicle.

The Statement of Facts in Braun’s case asserts that the driver noticed the passenger — initially identified as Jerry LNU, for “Last Name Unknown” — who he picked up about a mile from the Capitol had suffered a facial injury and asked if there had been violence all day.

The passenger seems to admit his own role in getting the violence and destruction started, saying that he tore down barricades, and then when asked how that worked out, he responds, “It looks like Biden’s gonna be our president.”

In photos reviewed by law enforcement, an individual appearing to menace and threaten police by use of a long wood plank was identified as the same suspect, Jerry Braun. In other images he appears to strike a person wearing a “press” identifier.
