Guilty Plea From Attack On The Capitol For The Second Time

Guilty Plea From Attack On The Capitol For The Second Time

It’s been called a riot and an insurrection, but the truth is it was more of an invasion of wolves wearing sheep’s clothing.

It was the fiasco at the U.S. Capitol on January 6 when a bunch of people wearing Trump and Make America Great Again gear invaded the building and disrupted a session of the House of Representatives, among other mischiefs.

At the time, few, if any of the people involved were arrested, and next to none have been charged with any sort of crime. That is slowly changing as the investigation of over four thousand people advances.

One person was charged this week for the crime of disrupting Congress after pleading guilty.

A Florida man has become only the second person so far to enter a guilty plea for taking part in the storming of the US Capitol building.

Paul Hodgkins, 38, entered the Senate chamber wearing a Trump T-shirt and carrying a “Trump 2020” flag.

The crane operator admitted obstructing an official proceeding of Congress.

And what consequences does the man face for this crime?

Obstructing an official proceeding of Congress carries a maximum prison sentence of 20 years, but federal sentencing guidelines recommended 15-21 months.

Hodgkins has also agreed to pay $2,000 in damages. Prosecutor Mona Sedky estimated that total damage to the Capitol from the riot was around $1.5m, reports the Washington Post.

Patrick Leduc, Hodgkins’ attorney, described his client as “a working Joe” who spent 15 minutes inside the Capitol building.

“There’s no justification for January 6th,” Mr Leduc said. “That’s why he is standing up and entering a plea of guilty.

“He acknowledges what he did was wrong, and there’s no excuses for it.”

So, why did Hodgkins and so many other people do it, then, if there was no call for it? Supporters of President Donald Trump have been blamed for the entire affair, and yet at other events, no such activity has happened.

Something just isn’t right about it all.
