WOW: Tantrum-throwing #Capitol breach suspect Richard Barnett & his lawyer just went on Russian state-owned TV.

Reporter asks if he'll do it again

Lawyer cuts Richard off, then Richard goes on a rant about living and dying by the constitution.

The man presenting about Richard Barnett?

Dimitry Kiselyov... a Kremlin-favorite known for anti-American rhetoric.

He notoriously warned that Russia could turn America into "radioactive ashes" during a report on the Crimea.

The Russian State-owned TV episode where Barnett appears pushes the narrative #Capitol breach suspects are being treated unfairly.

Where have we heard that before?

It also features some..uh.. claims by Richard & his lawyer that need scrutiny.
