“We did get a chance to storm the Capitol, and we made it to the chamber. We managed to convince the cops to let us through. They listened to reason. So when we got in the chamber we all started praying and shouting in the name of Jesus Christ and inviting Christ back into our state Capitol,” the man said, according to Newbern’s summary.
