Capitol rioter claims he was ‘duped’ by Trump, lawyer says

Lexi Lonas of The Hill –

The attorney for Anthony Chansley, the so-called QAnon Shaman who made rounds on social media in his outlandish outfit during the Capitol riot, is blaming former President Trump for his client’s involvement. 

“He regrets very, very much having not just been duped by the president but by being in a position where he allowed that duping to put him in a position to make decisions he should not have made,” Al Watkins, a lawyer for Chansley, told Missouri’s NBC-affiliated television station KSDK.

Chansley, also known as Jake Angeli, was arrested on Jan. 9 for his role in the riot. At the time, Chansley told NBC News he saw nothing wrong with his actions.
