Jacob Anthony Chansley

Chansley, a Native American faith healer, entered the Capitol building with an American flag, dressed in a bearskin headdress with his face painted red, white, and blue. In the news article above (5th video down) he leads a group of protesters in prayer. Video footage shows Chansley speaking over a bullhorn, reinforcing police instructions that they enter as long as they remain peaceful.

Please keep in mind that in the United States, every citizen charged with a crime is presumed innocent until proven guilty.
