    Breaking: Trump loyalists meant to ‘capture, assassinate’ officials at Capitol: Prosecutors

    US prosecutors say President Donald Trump’s loyalists intended “to capture and assassinate” government officials during last week’s violent attack on the Capitol, which led to the impeachment of the Republican president.

    Thousands of Trump’s supporters attacked the Capitol building on January 6 as the chamber was debating the counting of Electoral College’s votes.

    He encouraged his loyalists to “be wild” and “fight like hell…to take back our county” before Congress certify President-elect Joe Biden’s victory in the November 3, 2020 election. 

    Federal prosecutors wrote in a court filing on Thursday that they have strong evidence that Capitol siege rioters intended to “capture and assassinate elected officials in the United States government.”

    Federal prosecutors wrote in a court filing on Thursday that they have strong evidence that Capitol siege rioters intended to “capture and assassinate elected officials in the United States government.”

    They said that one of the rioters, Jacob Chansley, had left a note for Pence warning that “it’s only a matter of time, justice is coming.”

    Chansley, known as the “QAnon shaman,” was famously photographed wearing horns as he stood at the desk of Vice President Mike Pence in the chamber of the US Senate, during the siege.

    Chansley, who is due to appear in federal court on Friday, has been charged with unlawful and violent entry of the Capitol building, as well as “active participation in an insurrection” to overthrow the government.

    In his case, prosecutors said the charges “involve active participation in an insurrection attempting to violently overthrow the United States government.”

    They also suggested he suffers from drug abuse and mental illness and told the judge he poses a serious flight risk.

    Prosecutors warned that “the insurrection is still in progress” as law enforcement prepares for more demonstrations in Washington and state capitals.
