Law & Crime reports:
A white supremacist former Army reservist who dressed up as Adolf Hitler before joining in the siege of the U.S. Capitol should spend six-and-a-half years in prison for his role in the “attack on the beating heart of democracy,” federal prosecutors wrote in a sentencing memo.
In May, a federal jury convicted Timothy Hale-Cusanelli on a felony count of obstructing an official proceeding and four misdemeanors. In the sentencing memo, prosecutors say that Hale-Cusanelli has used a relative’s fundraising organization to organize fellow extremists behind bars.
When asked what he would do if he were “King of America,” Hale-Cusanelli replied that he would expel the Jews and all Congress members. He responded to a question about whether Congress members were “part of” the Jews by saying “No. But also, yes.”
On a related note, this is from last week:
Of all people to highlight at his weekend Pennsylvania rally, former President Donald Trump gave stage time for a single Jan. 6 rioter from New Jersey who dressed like Adolf Hitler and told co-workers that the führer “should have finished the job,” according to investigators.
Convicted insurrectionist Timothy Hale-Cusanelli’s aunt pleaded for sympathy for her nephew from the stage at Trump’s rally Saturday in Wilkes-Barre. “Tim went to the nation’s capitol to hear his president speak” last year, Cynthia Hughes told the crowd.
Hughes characterized her nephew as “sort of a poster child for Jan. 6th-related injustice,” CNN’s national security correspondent Zachary Cohen told Jim Acosta Sunday.
