Joshua James

People from across the country have raised more than $160,000 for Joshua James’ legal defense fund.

James is the Arab man arrested last week by the FBI for his alleged role in the Jan. 6 insurrection at the U.S. Capitol.

James, 33, is charged with two federal felony counts related to entering the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, according to the court filing.

Prosecutors charged James, a cleaning business owner who is a member of the Oath Keepers, who provided security around the “Stop the Steal” events on Jan. 5 and Jan. 6, according to newly unsealed court filings in the D.C. District Court.

“On Jan. 6, 2021, James and a number of the same Oath Keepers he was with on Jan. 5 – all clad in much of the same tactical and Oath Keeper gear they had donned the day prior – are seen in photographs and videos walking together throughout Washington, D.C., and eventually toward the Capitol building,” the FBI wrote in an affidavit supporting James’ arrest.

Since everything it touches dies, let’s put all those from the failed coup in the same jail as the autocrat.

People from across the country also wouldn't mind seeing this guy go to jail. Just so you know.
