Biden’s Political Prisoners Are Still Being Held Without Due Process

American political prisoners have been held for more than 5 months in solitary confinement in 7X10 cells for 23 hours a day. These people have not been convicted of any crimes, they are being held in “pretrial detention” for trespassing the capitol halls of corruption on 6 January 2021. Their trials have not been set. They have been denied bail. They are not allowed to meet with lawyers in private. They have one hour a day for “exercise”, showers, and phone calls. They have been denied due process

 

American Greatness

 

The latest “conspiracy theory” consuming the political Right, our media betters warn, is the idea that the Biden regime is creating a class of political prisoners stemming from the January 6 protest on Capitol Hill. Scoffing at accusations that January 6 protesters are treated differently from other protesters, columnists and talking heads insist it’s nothing more than right-wing media spin.

A rally scheduled this weekend for January 6 defendants has official Washington apoplectic. Dozens of Americans remain locked up in a D.C. jail and at facilities across the country as they await trials that won’t begin until at least mid-2022,.

“The idea that people are languishing unfairly in grim detention facilities, though, fits neatly with a broad narrative that the Biden administration is rounding up and jailing political opponents,” Philip Bump, national correspondent for the Washington Postwrote on Thursday. “This weekend’s rally is called ‘Justice for J6,’ implying that those still held are being detained unjustly for punitive reasons.”

All of that, of course, is true. More than 600 Americans have been rounded up by Joe Biden’s Justice Department with new arrests coming every week. Federal prosecutors have requested pre-trial detention for at least 100 defendants; 60 Capitol protesters are now in jail and denied bail. For months, January 6 detainees have suffered under solitary confinement conditions, were allowed out of their cells only one hour per day, and have been denied access to lawyers, exercise, personal hygiene, and religious services.

But Bump, like the rest of the national news media, not only downplays the detention of dozens of January 6 protesters including those charged with no violent crime, he justifies the unequal treatment under the caveat that the accused participated in an alleged “insurrection” to overthrow the government.

At the same time, the American people are supposed to deny what they see with their own eyes and believe that the 630 or so Americans arrested and charged for mostly misdemeanor offenses related to January 6 are being treated the same way as Antifa or Black Lives Matter activists.

Ironically, while Bump was penning his column on Thursday, the D.C. District court held hearings for four Trump supporters who’ve been in jail for several months under pre-trial detention sought by Joe Biden’s Justice Department and allowed by two Obama-appointed judges. All four detainees are housed in a D.C. jail specifically used to incarcerate Americans arrested for protesting the election of Joe Biden.

Kelly Meggs, Kenneth Harrelson, and Jessica Watkins (she is transgender) are members of the Oath Keepers, the Justice Department’s premier “conspiracy” case. Watkins was arrested in January; Meggs was arrested in February along with his wife, Connie; Harrelson was arrested in March.

None has a criminal record. None is charged with bringing a weapon, assaulting anyone including a police officer, or destroying government property. Their biggest crime, according to the government, was “conspiring” to enter the Capitol building in a “stack formation” clad in military gear—most Oath Keepers are veterans—where they remained for about 20 minutes.

In a motion asking the court to deny Jessica Watkins’ release, the prosecutor described Watkins’ beliefs about the 2020 presidential election as evidence of her potential danger to the community. “Watkins considered the prospect of a Biden presidency an existential threat,” Biden’s Justice Department wrote in February. “[S]he not only maintains, but has exhibited an extremist anti-government ideology that this Court has no reason to believe will abate if released.”

Judge Amit Mehta, appointed by Barack Obama in 2014, repeatedly has signed orders to keep Watkins, Harrelson, and Meggs in jail, arguing they pose a danger because they plotted in advance to travel to Washington, D.C. and enter the building together while acknowledging they committed no violent crime.

In a hearing Thursday, Ken Harrelson’s lawyer told Mehta his client was in “terrible” shape, hadn’t had a shower or shave, and is suffering from an untreated medical condition. Jail officials are preventing in-person meetings between defendants and their attorneys. “I’ve met with him for five minutes,” his new lawyer told Mehta.

But on Friday, Mehta again denied Harrelson’s release. “He merely makes assertions about the lack of evidence that he engaged in violent acts or directly destroyed property,” Mehta wrote in his September 17 order. “But, of course, this court was aware of the absence of such proof, and yet detained Defendant anyways because the totality of the evidence established his dangerousness. The evidence included, among other things, his leadership position with the Oath Keepers both before and on January 6; his coordination with others in bringing weapons just outside the District of Columbia to support a ‘quick reaction force’; [and] his forceful entry into the Capitol building as part of a larger group moving in a ‘stack’ formation.”

So an Obama-appointed judge admits a defendant did not commit a violent crime but that his membership to a group publicly opposed to Joe Biden, along with other hearsay, makes him too serious a threat to let him go home to his family?

Further, Mehta now is preparing to move the January 2022 trial date for Harrelson, Meggs, and Watkins to April 2022 because the government still cannot get its evidence together. That means three nonviolent Americans who dared to protest the incoming Biden regime will be behind bars for more than a year before a moment of their trials can begin.

Also on Thursday, Judge Rudolph Contreras again refused to release Kyle Fitzsimons, a January 6 protester arrested on February 4.  Fitzsimons faces several charges including assaulting Sargent Aquilino Gonell, the celebrity U.S. Capitol Police officer who beat Fitzsimons on the head with his baton that afternoon. (Gonell also handled the dying body of Roseanne Boyland an hour after the confrontation with Fitzsimons.)

In a motion arguing against Fitzsimons release, Biden’s Justice Department listed several voicemail messages he left at the office of his congressman after the election. “On December 18, 2020, the defendant stated that the electoral college vote is corrupt and total garbage,” the lead prosecutor wrote. “He urged the Congressperson to dispute the election results in January.”

Contreras is the same judge who signed the plea agreement with Lt. General Michael Flynn in December 2017 then immediately recused himself before text messages showing his friendship with disgraced FBI lawyer Peter Strzok were made public.

Contreras, appointed by Obama in 2012, won’t issue his ruling until next month. Fitzsimons will continue to languish in jail, away from his two-year-old daughter, for at least another 30 days.

New York Times reporter Alan Feuer also attempted to debunk the belief that a “vast federal investigation of the riot has been essentially unfair, its targets the victims of political persecution.” Feuer dismisses claims about inhumane jail conditions by reminding his readers that jail is a “terrible place to be.”

But Feuer tips his hand when he admits the Justice Department is using a “novel charge” to prosecute January 6 protesters. More than 200 people face obstruction of an official proceeding charge, a felony punishable by up to 20 years in jail. (I explained the background of the law in March.)

 

Hordes of angry leftists have stormed the state capitols of Georgia, Wisconsin, and the Hart Senate building.  Sandy Cortez led a group of protesters that stormed Pelosi’s office in 2018 for hours until Capitol Hill Police arrested 51 of the protesters for unlawful entry and protest; a stunt that was praised by the media.  None of them were arrested or subjected to Shawshank conditions.

The 6 January protesters have been beaten and isolated by the guards.  Lawyers for one, a man called Ryan Samsel, say he was beaten so badly he has a skull fracture and is now blind in one eye.

Since 6 January, FBI jackboots targeted an innocent man for attending President Trump’s 6 January rally, raided the wrong home in Alaska looking for Nancy Pelosi’s laptop, arrested a man for standing inside the capitol and waving a Trump banner, confiscated a Lego set from an “insurrectionist” and asked that citizens turn in their “extremist friends and relatives“.

The leftwing media and Dem politicians call them “terrorists” and ran to their psychoanalyst for therapy.

Yet, the Antifa/BLM goons responsible for the destruction of businesses, police stations, and courthouses, have skated out of any legal consequences for their crimes.  The Feds refuse to prosecute.

The Dems have created a system of bullying and persecution of political opponents. This shit usually happens in Communist countries and Banana Republics. It’s happening in America.
