“QAnon Shaman” Now Says He was “Duped” By Trump

St. Louis’s NBC News affiliate reports:

With the possibility of a presidential pardon off the table, St. Louis attorney Al Watkins is lining up his client’s defense strategy. Watkins is representing perhaps the most recognizable figure from the unrest – Jacob Chansley, 33, also known as the ‘Qanon Shaman’.

Watkins said President Trump’s inaction was a wake-up call for some, including his client. “He regrets very very much having not just been duped by the President, but by being in a position where he allowed that duping to put him in a position to make decisions he should not have made,” said Watkins.
