Albuquerque’s ABC News affiliate reports:
Jailed Otero County Commissioner, Couy Griffin, will stay behind bars in Washington, D.C. Griffin was arrested last month and charged with the unlawful entry for storming the U.S. Capitol on January 6.
The U.S. Attorney’s office in D.C. had asked that Griffin be held without bail, arguing that he’s a flight risk and referring to comments he had made about returning to Washington for Biden’s inauguration.
In one video that was posted on Facebook and later removed, Griffin denied that the riot was a violent mob and said if the demonstrators returned to hold a Second Amendment rally, “there’s gonna be blood running out of that building.”
