Court Orders Psych Evaluation For “QAnon Shaman”

The Hill reports:

A Washington, D.C., federal judge has ordered Jacob Chansley, the Jan. 6 Capitol rioter known as the “QAnon Shaman,” to undergo a psychological evaluation. In an order on Friday, Judge Royce Lamberth said there is “reasonable cause to believe that a competency exam” for Chansley is warranted.

The examination will determine whether he is “presently suffering from a mental disease or defect rendering him mentally incompetent to the extent that he is unable to understand the nature and consequences of the proceedings against him or to assist properly in his defense.”

The order stipulates that Chansley may not be held in the designated psych facility for more than 30 days.
