Joshua James

On January 6th, James served as security detail for a speaker at the Stop the Steal rallies. The government says James and others “aggressively berated and taunted US Capitol Police officers.”

They walked through the crowd in a common military formation to stay together. His group was one of the first to enter the Capitol.

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