One Jan 6th Insurrectionist Indicted While Others Fight Charges and Whine Over Personal Privilege In Court

It’s already been a busy week in court for Trump supporters who participated in the January 6th insurrection at the Capitol.

The Justice Department has officially indicted James Robert “Jim Bob” Elliott on six counts for his involvement in the attack on Congress. The Illinois man was arrested for assaulting law enforcement with a flag pole, classified as a dangerous weapon in the indictment. Other charges include civil disorder, assaulting, resisting, or impeding certain officers with a dangerous weapon, and entering and remaining in a restricted building or grounds with a deadly or dangerous weapon.

Elliott is one of the many Capitol attackers who are being linked to violence against the police, which is the renewed focus now that the DOJ has moved on from those who merely breached the building. Of the 700 people arrested in connection with the Capitol riots, 220 have been charged with assaulting law enforcement.

Another participant currently facing legal repercussions is Beverly Hills salon owner Gina Bisignano, who is awaiting trial on counts ranging from Disorderly and Disruptive Conduct in a Restricted Building or Grounds to Engaging in Physical Violence in a Restricted Building or Grounds. Bisignano became one of the more recognizable faces of the riot, and now says she is “destitute” as she faces seven counts to which she has pleaded not guilty. A recent profile in New York Magazine revealed that two days after the riot, “Gina appeared on Infowars to share a video she had taken,” which, in turn, helped lead to her arrest before being granted bail.

And then there’s Pauline Bauer, one of the defendants in the riot who is representing herself, who’s “demanding” to be released from jail so that she can “review” the evidence against her. Bauer is a member of the “Sovereign Citizen” movement, which is infamous for making nonsense filings when challenged in court and has been linked to acts of violence and terrorism. In Bauer’s case, she was jailed after a series of self-destructive meltdowns in court, shouting at the judge, claiming that the court has “no dominion over a living soul,” and demanding that authorities “drop all charges against my VESSEL.”
