Federal judge rules 'QAnon shaman' too dangerous to be released from jail

Source: The Hill

Jacob Chansley, the self-proclaimed "QAnon Shaman" who participated in the Jan. 6 riot at the Capitol, will not be released from jail ahead of his trial, a federal judge determined on Monday.

In court documents cited by CNN, Judge Royce Lamberth argued that Chansley's statements holding former President Trump accountable for his alleged illegal entry into the Capitol building showed that Chansley was unremorseful about his actions.

"The court finds that no condition or combination of conditions of release will reasonably assure defendant's appearance as required [in court] or the safety of others and the community," Lamberth ruled.

"Defendant characterizes himself as a peaceful person who was welcomed into the Capitol building on January 6th by police officers. The Court finds none of his many attempts to manipulate the evidence and minimize the seriousness of his actions persuasive," the judge continued.

U.S. House panel reissues subpoena for Trump's tax records


(Reuters) - A U.S. House of Representatives panel has reissued a subpoena seeking Donald Trump's tax and financial records, saying in a memo made public on Tuesday it needs the documents to address "conflicts of interest" by future presidents.

In a court filing on Tuesday, House lawyers told a judge that the House Oversight Committee reissued a subpoena to Trump's accounting firm, Mazars USA LLP, on Feb. 25.

The committee issued a similar subpoena in 2019, but that subpoena expired in January when new U.S. lawmakers took office.

Tuesday's court filing included a Feb. 23 memorandum from the committee's chairwoman, Representative Carolyn Maloney, explaining to colleagues the decision to reissue the subpoena.
