"Douglas Jensen, a January 6, 2021, rioter at the forefront of a group that chased US Capitol Police Officer Eugene Goodman near the Senate chamber, was found guilty by a Washington, DC, jury Friday evening on charges related to the attack.

Jensen was found guilty on each of the seven charges brought by the government, including assaulting, impeding or resisting an officer and obstructing an official proceeding, which carries a maximum sentence of 20 years -- though the sentencing guidelines for Jensen will likely be far lower.

Five of the charges were felonies and two were misdemeanor offenses."

Obviously an Antifa Tourist.

And not just any Antifa Tourist, the lead one...

"During the trial, Jensen's attorney, Christopher Davis, told the jury that before January 6, Jensen had fallen down an internet "rabbit hole" and became a follower of the conspiracy theory known as QAnon.

As part of it, Jensen believed that during the riot, officers would begin arresting elected officials who opposed President Donald Trump's efforts to stop the certification, Davis said, including Vice President Mike Pence.

Instead of arresting Pence, officers -- including Goodman -- defended the Capitol from the onslaught of rioters. Jensen, with a mob behind him, chased Goodman up flights of stairs near the Senate chamber as the officer led them away from the senators still inside.

According to prosecutors, Jensen was one of the first 10 rioters who breached the building that day.

He will be sentenced on December 16."

If only we could coordinate Trump's sentencing with his it would be sorta, I don' know, 'special'.

"officers would begin arresting elected officials who opposed President Donald Trump"

If that had happened, JeffJ would be telling us what happened that day was legal. Probably Eberly too.

As it turns out, this Grand Jury (which I would pay to be on!)has already heard sworn testimony from many of the J6 witnesses at the J6 Hearing.

Including Trump's lawyer who told John Eastman after hearing the Coup Plan, that he had better get the "best f'n criminal defense attny you can find."

Noticed the mention of "chief judge", which is likely Thomas. I would feel very disappointed if a SCOTUS Judge was subpoenaed for possible involvement in the attempted coup. But if it needs done, we need to do it.

It was interesting, after watching that video, a coworker and I couldn't understand why Goodman, who had the higher ground, didn't front kick the POS into the following week. Then I saw the interview in which he said he was leading the mob away from a critical entrance to where members of Congress were holed up, so there was a method to the madness, and the quick-thinking Officer Goodman was the hero of the day.

@#6 ... the quick-thinking Officer Goodman was the hero of the day. ...

Yup.

I had seen that commentary a while ago.

Hope he had fun pretending to lead an insurrection on jan 6th. Now he can tell the same story over and over about how he sure showed the Man hat day to his cellmates for next 20-30 years.

Nice photo, conveying a combination of stupidity, arrogance and the expectation of a full pardon. I suspect he will lose the arrogance about an hour into his time in general population, while the stupidity will follow him for the rest of his life. As for his pardon, Jensens chances are between slim and none, and Slim has left town ...

People who think anger can fix problems instead of living in a peaceful society. CYA! I don't mind you being in jail for 2 decades.
