Trump 'deserves life in prison,' says daughter of January 6 rioter who was sentenced to 7 years behind bars


Recommended Posts

 

The daughter of a man sentenced to seven years in prison on Monday for taking part in the January 6, 2021, insurrection told reporters former President Donald Trump, whose supporters stormed the US Capitol, deserved to spend the rest of his life behind bars in light of her father's sentence.

Guy Reffitt, who was reported to authorities by his teenage son, was the first person to be convicted at trial for taking part in the riot. Prosecutors had recommended that Reffitt receive a 15-year sentence, saying his actions that day — prosecutors alleged he stormed Congress in tactical gear with an aim of assaulting members of Congress — constituted domestic terrorism.

His seven-year sentence is the longest yet received by a January 6 rioter. At least 884 people have been charged in connection with the violent effort to overturn the results of the 2020 election.

 

After Reffitt was sentenced, his daughters spoke with the media and said it wasn't fair for their father to receive such a long prison term while more powerful people remained free.

"To mark my dad as this horrible person, and then having him prosecuted like this, when somebody is maybe even able to get elected again? Doesn't seem right to me," Sarah Reffitt told reporters.

 

"Trump deserves life in prison if my father is in prison for this long," Peyton Reffitt added.

The comments came after reports that federal prosecutors were asking witnesses to speak about Trump's actions on January 6. While no US president has ever been prosecuted over their actions while in office, legal experts have said Trump may be charged with seeking to obstruct an official proceeding of Congress — and that seeking to recognize fake pro-Trump electors from states won by President Joe Biden could constitute fraud.

So, they're saying the Aquarian should be exonerated?

And yes, this is Fascist/Leftist/ Communist Australian Marsupial 'Justice' at its worst.  7 years is beyond egregious 

Here's a little inspiration (maybe we can go in on some signed Trump NFTs.  You seem like a fan):
