American Jacob Chensley, who stormed the Capitol in a Viking costume, admitted that he felt deceived by former US President Donald Trump. LadBible writes about this with reference to the man’s lawyer Al Watkins.
According to the lawyer, his client regrets that he let himself be deceived. Chensley also emphasized that he was simply following the American leader’s call for a rally. “Let’s wind up months of lies, distortions, horrific insinuations and hyperbolic speeches of our president, designed to inflame, anger, motivate,” the lawyer said.
Chensley was remembered for wearing a fur hat with horns and painted his face in the colors of the American flag during the riots. After the assault, he was charged with hooliganism, forced entry and illegal presence on premises on the territory of the Capitol. The man’s lawyer asked Trump to pardon him.
