Rioter Charged With Assault After Feds Find His Diary

Raw Story reports:

A 71-year-old Pennsylvania man has been charged by the Department of Justice with assaulting police officers during the January 6 insurrection at the U.S. Capitol. Like many other MAGA rioters that day, Howard Charles Richardson of King Prussia was captured on video as part of the crowd fighting with law enforcement.

But Richardson was also betrayed by an unusual witness, according to the Feds: His own diary. Agents found a day planner that Richardson acknowledged was his.

Richardson wrote that he parked at 11:00 a.m., was at the front of the Capitol building at 12: 15 p.m., “gates were breeched” at 1:00 p.m., “moving up to steps” at 1:30-1 :45 p.m., and “got pepper sprayed” at 2:00 p.m. He noted that he “started to leave” the Capitol at 3:30 p.m.
