Prosecutors want to send a suspected capitol rioter back to the slammer after he was released because he watched Mike Lindell’s cyber symposium.
Doug Jensen was arrested days after the incident at the Capitol after he was seen on video following a Capitol Police officer inside of the building.
After spending six months behind bars as he awaited his trial he was granted a pre-trial release. His attorney vowed that he had disavowed his previous conspiracy beliefs and would abide by the terms the court set, The Des Moines register reported.
Prosecutors say both of those statements were false. In a motion filed Thursday, they say that, despite Jensen being ordered not to access the internet or have access to his family’s internet-connected devices, a pretrial services officer caught him in his garage streaming news from a right-wing site to a wifi-enabled iPhone, to which he had the password.
Jensen reportedly falsely claimed the phone was his daughter’s, and later admitted he’d spent two days watching the Cyber Symposium, an event organized by pillow manufacturer and leading Stop the Steal advocate Mike Lindell.
It appears from court documents the discovery happened Aug. 12 or 13. Jensen was initially released from custody July 14.
“Jensen managed to violate one of the most difficult-to-enforce conditions in the most egregious way imaginable,” Assistant U.S. Attorney Hava Mirell said to the court. “He has proven that not even six months in jail will deter him.”
“Jensen’s swift violation confirms what the Government and this Court suspected all along: that Jensen’s alleged disavowal of QAnon was just an act; that his alleged epiphany inside the D.C. Jail was merely self-advocacy; and that, at the end of the day, Jensen will not abandon (QAnon),” he said.
The prosecutors argued that his wife was to be his pre-trial custodian but said she allowed him access to the electronic devices making her unsuitable for the job.
As for Lindell, the MyPillow CEO has been one of the most ardent proponents of the belief that shenanigans happened in the 2020 presidential election which led to Joe Biden winning.
He has been ridiculed by many for his beliefs and many stores have stopped selling his products, but that has not stopped him.
