A veteran comedian with roles on Mr. Show, Arrested Development, Bob's Burgers and Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy has pleaded guilty in connection with his role in the Jan. 6, 2021, attack on the U.S. Capitol. Jay Johnston, wearing a gray suit, pleaded guilty to a felony offense of obstructing officers during a civil disorder.

After his arrest, Johnston was indicted by a federal grand jury alongside four other Jan. 6 defendants; the government alleged that all five men took part in the battle at the lower west tunnel leading into the Capitol, where some of the worst rioter-on-law-enforcement violence took place on Jan. 6.

I can't believe he went from a fictional rumble where someone died in anchor man to a real rumble where some died on j6.

Yeah, but see the guy who sent all these thugs to the Capitol to stop the peaceful transfer of power in this country is an innocent Hero of the Republican Party.

Go figure.

Sorry I've missed out on this thug's comedic stylings. He can now play a member of the Manson Family, being X'ed out of this world. Good riddance. I hope he has a terrible time in jail...

Is he the one who was twerking on the cop car and ambulance during the riots?

If that's what you call participating with other rioters in a group assault on the officers protecting the lower west tunnel.
