Capitol Insurrection Crime January 6

Jan. 6 Rioter Gets 7+ Years In Prison After Using As His Defense: ‘I Was Not Thinking Clearly’

Guy Reffitt is about to be on an extended vacation at Club Fed, and considering what he used as his so-called “defense,” it’s no wonder he was convicted and sentenced to 87 months in federal prison.

Reffitt was the genius who filmed a video in which he bragged he was planning to kidnap Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and drag her down the stairs of the Capitol building so her head hit every step. He also took a loaded handgun into the Capitol on January 6, 2021 and proudly announced:

“I’m taking the Capitol with everybody fucking else. We’re all going to drag them motherfuckers out kicking and screaming, I don’t give a shit.”

And yet, when he stood before the bar of justice for sentencing, Reffitt could muster this as a defense of his disgusting actions: He called himself a fu*king idiot” who had “f*cked up” and swore to the judge that he’d had his fill of militia groups and that sort of “shit.” He added:

“I was not thinking clearly.”

After the sentence was handed down, Reffitt’s daughter told reporters “Trump deserves life in prison,” a sentiment that is certainly shared by tens of millions of Americans.

The Justice Department had requested that Reffitt receive at least 15 years behind bars.
