Report: QAnon Shaman’s Family Told Him Not To Plead Guilty, Claimed Trump Would Pardon Him Once He Was Reinstated

There were, unfortunately, a number of memorable characters from the January 6th insurrection. Jacob Chansley, though, might have been the most notable. The bare-chested Arizona man declared himself the QAnon Shaman as he strolled through the capitol building.

It now appears that Chansley wasn’t acting alone, but was being egged on by his family. According to a new report from CNN, family members urged the insurrectionist against pleading guilty claiming that Donald Trump would pardon him once he as reinstated in office.

Marshall Cohen writes, “Family members of the so-called “QAnon Shaman,” real name Jacob Chansley, were urging him not to plead guilty today because they believe Trump is going to be reinstated and then will grant him a pardon.”

Chansley has shown remorse for his actions that day. His lawyer Albert Watkins, recently released a statement which read, “Mr. Chansley, a long-avowed and practicing Shaman, has repudiated the ‘Q’ previously assigned to him and requests future references to him be devoid of use of the letter ‘Q’.’
