Some of you may remember the guy who propped his feet up on Nancy Pelosi's desk on the January 6th insurrection. He had his day in court yesterday and was found guilty on all eight counts in his indictment, including felony charges of civil disorder and obstruction of an official proceeding. The jury deliberated for approximately two hours before unanimously convicting Richard “Bigo” Barnett of the charges.
Sentencing for Barnett is scheduled on May 3rd.
Outside the courthouse after the verdict, Barnett vowed to appeal his conviction, calling it an "injustice.” He noted that the judge had rejected his request to move his trial from Washington to Arkansas.
“This is not a jury of my peers,” he told reporters. Yes Richard... it wasn't your peers because they were all arrested too!
