THE QANON SHAMAN'S LAWYER FIELDED QUESTIONS FROM REPORTERS
Albert Watkins, the attorney representing Jacob Chansley, the QAnon Shaman, fielded questions from reporters outside the courthouse following the sentencing of his client to a 41-month imprisonment for his role in the January 6th insurrection.
On whether he considers his client an Insurrectionist
Attorney Watkins: "An insurrectionist? Look up the word. Are you going to follow the guy who is naked, tattooed nipples, January, DC, hours outside, with horns, face paint, and a fur? And you say, 'yeah, that's the guy I want, I'm following him?' Unless you are smoking crack. But, you know....not bad...on occasions...but..."
On the appropriate accountability for Donald Trump for the January 6th Insurrection
Attorney Watkins: "Ummm..well, if you ask me my opinion. Well, you know, my opinion is meaningless. I would say that I'd be far more effective over a beer with former President Trump, even if he didn't have a beer, because I understand he doesn't drink beer. But I'll have a beer. And I'll tell him, 'You know what? You've got a few f...ing things to do, including clearing this f...ing mess up and taking care of a lot of these jackasses you f...ked up because of January 6.' In the meantime, I might talk to him about some other things that I agree with him on. But my opinion doesn't mean shit."
