In DC Insurrection Case Munchel & Eisenart Still Detained As DDC Judge Lamberth Mulls Zip Ties

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Podcast
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - ESPN

FEDERAL COURT, Feb 17 – Detained after the US Capitol incursion on January 6, Eric Gavelek Munchel and Lisa Eisenhart  appeared on February 17 before before DDC Judge Royce C. Lamberth. In the air: the zip-ties Munchel was photographed with. Inner City Press live tweeted it, here:

Assistant US Attorney Ahmed Baset: The video shows Mr. Munchel is helping people to approach and come closer to the Capitol. In terms of conditions of release, the single chat found on his cell phone show no condition could preclude him from coordinating with Proud Boys

AUSA: His priority is to be, as he'd put it, a true patriot. So no conditions could prevent danger to the community. The transition of power to President Biden has made this worse: Ms. Eisenart says she is willing to die for this cause

AUSA: The argument that they did not try to hide should not be credited - they knew the whole world was looking for them, the FBI, everyone. Still, Mr. Munchel deleted his Facebook account so the media would stop bombarding him.

AUSA: The release conditions would have Mr Munchel staying at the house of W-2. We've obtained a video from his phone that's a clip of a longer video

AUSA: Ms. Eisenart and Mr. Munchel, they felt entitled to walk into the Capitol building; they were willing to use force to stop the vote from being certified. They were dressed for combat. These conditions still exist in our country. Do not release them.

Eisenart's lawyer Gregory Smith: My client only heard "someone punched two of them." She didn't know they were police officers. Dying for cause? That's false. She said, She would rather die than live under a country of oppression. There is no cause she's connected with

Eisenart's lawyer: In terms of feeling entitled, if it were ever true, it's not now. In prison the temperature is 55 degrees. 23 hours in the cell. She was prohibited from any phone calls, even on her mother's birthday this last Sunday

 Eisenart's lawyer: It would be wrong for the Court to conclude they would not comply with conditions. She's been a registered nurse for 30 years. 

Munchel's lawyer Sandra Roland: The AUSA's rebuttal was like a sentencing argument.

 Judge Lamberth: I'll rule as promptly as I can. For the next conference, March 10 at 1 pm. 

Eisenart will not consent to Speedy Trial time exclusion. But there's a DDC order, no?

We'll have more on this.
