The Hill reports:
A Jan. 6 rioter attempted to sell his footage of the insurrection to the documentary filmmaker daughter of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), the Justice Department said in a court filing. Ronald Sandlin, 35, participated in an interview with Alexandra Pelosi, the Speaker’s daughter, from jail and spoke about providing his footage of the attack.
Sandlin, who traveled to Washington, D.C., in January 2021 in anticipation of a “boogaloo” or civil war, assaulted several police officers during the riot, according to the Justice Department. As he awaits sentencing, prosecutors are asking for 63 months — more than five years — of prison time and a $20,000 fine, according to Friday’s filing.
