...James Phillip Mault, 29, originally from Brockport, New York, was arrested earlier this month on charges including assaulting, resisting or impeding certain officers using a dangerous weapon or inflicting bodily injury; disorderly conduct in a U.S. Capitol building; and civil disorder, the U.S. Attorney's Office in Washington, D.C., announced Wednesday.

Asked how Mault made it past enlistment screening despite allegedly having participated in the attack on the Capitol, Buccino said, "We really don't know how that may have happened.

Well until he was arrested it probably wasn't knowledge he was involved.

I had a player from the soccer team I coached who enlisted in the Air Force. A month before he was scheduled to enter a woman stopped by my house with his fake ID with MY ADDRESS on it. I delivered the ID to his father who informed him getting caught with a forged government instrument is a felony and would tank his enlistment. Two weeks later he broke into a neighbors house and beat up their son over a girl. Well there goes his plans right out the window.

Joined the army so he could be fully trained to fight for the confederate fascist army in a couple years, which biden and garland are doing nothing to prevent.

It's more likely that he's just a coward who was trying to avoid being arrested and thought joining the Army was his ticket out.

Make him jog back to Brockport, tied to the rear hitch of a deuce and a half. I hope he can keep up. For a while ...

That's a FACT Jack!

He's in the Army now. He's not behind a sow.

He'll be digging a ditch (that son of a "-!)

He's in the Army now!
