Court documents: Sandpoint man accused of participating in Capitol insurrection refused to leave

Court documents: Sandpoint man accused of participating in Capitol insurrection refused to leave elevator


The Sandpoint man accused of participating in the unlawful occupation of the U.S. Capitol in early January with his brother was identified as a participant when his image appeared on social media and television, according to court documents recently unsealed.

Michael Pope, 32, flew from the Spokane International Airport and met his brother, William, in Philadelphia the morning before a mob of supporters of President Donald Trump interrupted the authorization of the 2020 election results, a complaint filed in federal court in Washington, D.C., said. The brothers were identified by witnesses who recognized them in television coverage of the event aired on MSNBC. William Pope posted photos and video of himself and his brother on social media during the occupation.

Michael Pope appeared in District Court in Idaho on Feb. 12, although he did not enter a plea to the seven federal charges leveled against him, including a felony charge that carries a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison. He was released from custody after turning himself in. His attorney could not be reached for comment Friday afternoon.

The complaint was filed in Washington, D.C., and remained sealed for several days. It was filed in the nationís capital under a case number different from the one published on court records in Idaho.
