Hitler Mustache Rioter Gets Four Years In Federal Prison

The New Jersey Advance reports:

Timothy Hale-Cusanelli, the former Naval base employee and Army reservist from Monmouth County convicted of rioting in the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021, was sentenced to four years in federal prison Thursday. Multiple reporters present at the sentencing in Washington, D.C. reported the sentence via Twitter. Prosecutors argued for 78 months, or 6 1/2 years, behind bars for Hale-Cusanelli, who they say is a white supremacist and anti-Semite.

Hale-Cusanelli has become somewhat of a leader among jailed Capitol riot suspects and has continued to harbor a fondness for Nazi writings and symbols, prosecutors said. From the stand, he made additional headlines for saying: “I know this sounds idiotic, but I’m from New Jersey. In all my studies, I didn’t know there was an actual building that was called the ‘Capitol.’ It’s embarrassing and idiotic.”
