“QAnon Shaman” Pleads Not Guilty To Rioting Charges

Bloomberg News reports:

The Donald Trump supporter who wore a coyote-skin headdress into the Senate chamber and called himself the “QAnon Shaman” pleaded not guilty to a series of charges stemming from the Jan. 6 Capitol riot.

Jacob Chansley entered his plea Friday at an arraignment in federal court in Washington. He is facing charges including violent entry, disorderly conduct and obstruction of an official proceeding.

Images of Chansley at the Senate dais and elsewhere around the Capitol were among the most widely circulated from the insurrection. But his lawyer, Albert Watkins, has sought to portray Chansley as non-violent and truly spiritual. In court on Friday, Watkins called his client “a man of faith in shamanism, a longstanding faith.”
