Trump supporter Matthew Martin (pictured above) was acquitted today of misdemeanors for entering the US Capitol on January 6, 2021. Martin was waved in by Capitol Police who waved in hundreds of innocent Trump supporters that day.
Martin has been persecuted by his government for walking into the People’s House. He did not cause any damage and left after several minutes.
Conflicted DC District Court Judge Trevor McFadden lectured Martin with some BS before he was let go today. Prosecutors incorrectly blamed the deaths of several policemen on that day.
“You understand that police officers died?” Justice Department prosecutor Michael Romano asked Martin.
At least nine people died in the riot or its aftermath. More than 100 police officers were injured. One officer died after he collapsed hours after being sprayed with bear spray and other officers who tried to quell the riot died by suicide in the months following the attack.
This is a complete lie pushed by the toxic left. Four Trump supporters were killed that day. Two women were brutally killed by police. Trump supporter Ashli Babbitt was shot in the neck by Lt. Mike Byrd and Rosanne Boyland was beaten with sticks and trampled when police pushed supporters on top of her that day.
One police officer died from a stroke the next day. Several other police officers committed suicide but their deaths cannot be pinned on that day. This is just a media lie that is now being repeated by Judges and political leaders today.
The Biden administration held a jury trial for Matthew Martin from New Mexico.
A federal judge on Wednesday acquitted a New Mexico man of misdemeanor charges that he illegally entered the U.S. Capitol and engaged in disorderly conduct after he walked into the building during last year’s riot.
U.S. District Judge Trevor McFadden issued the verdict from the bench after hearing testimony without a jury in the case against Matthew Martin. McFadden, who was nominated by former President Donald Trump, acquitted Martin of all four counts for which he was charged.
Martin did not dispute that he joined hundreds of other people in entering the Capitol building during the riot. He is the third Capitol riot defendant whose case has been resolved by a trial. He is the first of the three to be acquitted of all charges that he faced,
The first two Capitol riot trials ended with convictions, although McFadden acquitted one of those defendants of a disorderly conduct charge after a bench trial last month. A fourth trial is being held this week in Washington, D.C., for a former Virginia police officer charged in the attack.
Martin was among hundreds of people charged with federal crimes arising from the siege on Jan. 6, 2021, when a mob of President Donald Trump’s supporters disrupted Congress from certifying Joe Biden’s 2020 electoral victory.
Martin, whose bench trial started Tuesday, testified that a police officer waved him into the building after the riot erupted. A prosecutor dismissed that testimony as “nonsense.”
