John Douglas Wright

In Wright’s Statements of Facts, you’ll see that Wright reveals his
premeditated intent to assault law enforcement officers, breach the US Capitol Building, commit
violence on members of Congress, and participate in “war” in conversations between himself and other individuals through Facebook.  Wright was also seen before the breach pulling at barriers set up by Capitol Police.

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