Man Seen Hanging Off of Ledge During Raid on Senate Says He’s Talking to His Lawyer – By Alberto Luperon (Law and Crime) / January 7 2021
There’s so much to unpack about Trump supporters rushing and breaking into the U.S. Capitol Building on Wednesday. One element in particular are the ramifications of those who forced their way in. Case in point: an Idaho man was photographed hanging from a ledge in the Senate.
His name is Josiah Colt, according to Boise-based news outlet KBOI-TV. He said he was consulting with his attorney.
“I love America,” he said in a statement to the outlet. “I love the people, I didn’t hurt anyone and I didn’t cause any damage in the Chamber. I got caught up in the moment and when I saw the door to to the Chamber open, I walked in, hopped down, and sat on the chair. I said my peace then I helped a gentlemen get to safety that was injured then left.”
He claimed to tell other protesters that this was a “sacred place” and to not cause any damage.
