‘QAnon Shaman,’ Navy veteran and face of pro-Trump Capitol riot, to plead guilty


Recommended Posts

WASHINGTON — One of the most visible participants in the Jan. 6 storming of the U.S. Capitol is set to plead guilty Friday, as a federal judge scheduled a plea hearing for Jacob Anthony Chansley, often referred to as the "QAnon Shaman."

Chansley, 33, of Phoenix was photographed shirtless and wearing horns, a fur-lined headdress and red, white and blue face paint while carrying a flag-draped spear in the Capitol, where prosecutors said he sat in the vice president's chair and left Mike Pence a note after the Senate chamber was evacuated.

Chansley served in the Navy as a supply clerk from September 2005 to October 2007, leaving the service as a seaman apprentice, according to his personnel record.
