Jacob Anthony Chensley, who stormed the US Capitol on January 6 in the guise of a Viking, intends to testify against ex-President Donald Trump at an impeachment hearing. Writes about this AP with reference to his lawyer Albert Watkins.
According to the lawyer, earlier his client was “fascinated” by Trump and could act under the influence of the politician’s words. Because the Republican refused to pardon his supporters before leaving office, Chensley felt betrayed, the lawyer said.
It is added that, in addition to the “Viking”, four more participants in the attack, who were charged, intend to testify in the Senate about incitement from Trump.
Chensley became famous for his participation in the storming of the US Congress building in a fur hat with horns and a spear. Later, the “Viking” was charged with deliberate entry and stay in a secure building or territory without legal authority, as well as intrusion and violation of order on the territory of the Capitol.
The attack on the Congress building took place on January 6. Donald Trump’s supporters rushed into the premises, thereby interrupting the meeting at which they were supposed to approve the results of the last November presidential elections.
