Pro-Nazi Rioter Found Guilty Of Felony In Bench Trial

The Washington Post reports:

A Northern Virginia military reservist assigned to do intelligence work was found guilty Tuesday of obstructing Congress’s confirmation of the 2020 presidential election results in the Jan. 6 Capitol riot.

Hatchet M. Speed, a Navy Reserve petty officer first class formerly assigned to Naval Warfare Space Field Activity at the National Reconnaissance Office in Chantilly, Va., was convicted of the felony offense, along with four misdemeanors, after a bench trial before U.S. District Judge Trevor N. McFadden.

U.S. prosecutors cast Speed as a heavily armed Nazi sympathizer with top-level U.S. government security clearance who breached the Capitol with members of the Proud Boys extremist group.
