undreds of Americans have been held in jail for months, even years, not because they are accused of some extreme crime, but because they protested the integrity of the 2020 presidential election, likely trespassed, and ultimately offended the Democrats whose candidate then moved into the White House.
There have been many horror stories from those Jan. 6, “political” prisoners, from their detention in horrific conditions, to officials depriving them of ordinary rights to counsel, to apparently coerced plea bargains.
But now, according to a report from the Epoch Times, there could be coming an end to that.
The report explains retiring U.S. Rep. Louie Gohmert, a Republican from Texas, has proposed a bill to address the detention, treatment and prosecution of defendants from the Jan. 6, 2021, riot at the Capitol.
It’s called the Matthew Lawrence Perna Act and it’s named after the man from Pennsylvania who was arrested for being in the Capitol building during those protests.
