Raw Story reports:
Attorney John Pierce, who has represented Kenosha, Wisconsin, shooting suspect Kyle Rittenhouse as well as more than a dozen Capitol rioters, reportedly is on a ventilator after contracting COVID-19. Pierce’s illness was first reported Wednesday after it prompted a hearing for accused Capitol rioter Shane Jenkins to be delayed, according to independent journalist Marcy Wheeler and Washington Post reporter Rachel Weiner.
Read the full article. Earlier this month I reported that Pierce was planning to claim that the rioters he represents were “legally sanctioned” by Trump to be in the Capitol. In December, Pierce withdrew from the Rittenhouse case after accusations of “ethical problems” over his financial dealings.
I personally think anyone who trusts the government to shoot some vague, unknown “vaccine” in their arm for a virus with origin of a CCP biological weapons lab is taking a very big risk. https://t.co/YWkDjI9qaI

Not sure actually. All I know is the entire 82nd Airborne couldn’t make me get an experimental government vaccine stuck in my arm. #1stCAV

John Pierce, the controversial right-wing lawyer hired by over a dozen Jan. 6 defendants, is apparently hospitalized with covid-19. (As explained at a hearing this am, one of several recently where he failed to appear)

Pierce is not AT this hearing, he sent the lawyer from his office who is not barred in DC again. Nor did he get his notice of appearance in behind.
“Mr. Pierce is in the hospital, we believe, with COVID-19, on a ventilator, non-responsive.”
