Brandon is currently up against 4 misdemeanors involving his time (3 and a half minutes) in a hallway just past the doors at J6, of course none of them violent or destroying property. The charges are as follows:
18 U.S.C. § 1752(a)(1) - Knowingly Entering or Remaining in any Restricted Building or Grounds Without Lawful Authority,
18 U.S.C. § 1752(a)(2) - Disorderly and Disruptive Conduct in a Restricted Building or Grounds,
40 U.S.C. § 5104(e)(2)(D) - Disorderly Conduct on Capitol Grounds,
40 U.S.C. § 5104(e)(2)(G) - Parade, Demonstrate, or Picket in any of the Capitol Buildings.
He didn't so much as raise my voice, let alone a sign to "parade, demonstrate, or picket" with. With these charges he may be facing jail time. He have a public attorney from DC, one that's been in other J6 headlines, but I want him to have someone who will have his back and fight. These funds will go directly to the legal fees of $10,000. Any excess money will be donated to the Institute for Justice (IJ).
The full story of his arrest is as follows:
I was flying out of DCA for a bit of time away from work with my friends and family then going to do some advocacy and school board work in OH. I just made it through the TSA (full pat down, all bags checked for dangerous items) and started walking towards the gates. I realized I had walked towards the wrong gates and when I turned around there were 3 FBI agents/LEO's that asked who I was and immediately arrested me. While leaving the area past the TSA, I turned to see over a dozen decked out officers. before taking me to an interviewing area near the airport. Went for photos, fingerprints, etc and was in a DC jail for a night. A guy processed about the same time had had beaten a tenant of his with a hammer, bugs everywhere, jailers thinking I'm being difficult for asking how many carbs are in the food/drink they give (I'm a type-1 Diabetic that came in with my insulin pump attached) - This was not the vacation I was hoping for. All the while my friends and family were scrambling to find out why I never got off my flight because of course I wasn't even allowed to tell my ride "Hey I won't be there, go home."
The amount of manpower and effort it took to do this public sting operation over multiple months and flights, frankly, was pathetic. He even told the FBI he would have showed up with a text! He has been banned on social media and the feds still have his old cell phone so he lot of contacts as well.
The Media had their fun with this story considering his resume but only a few people in the know took the bait so they moved on pretty quick, but you can search his name and pull up a few articles. This seems to cover most of it but I encourage you to look at what I'm up against and to make a donation to help me get proper representation. Here is an article that sums it up well: https://bit.ly/3Fmq5l1
