In DC Insurrection Case OathKeeper Jason Dolan Is Released After Brought Guns To Hotel

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

FEDERAL COURT, June 11 – Minutes into a break in the impeachment trial in the U.S. Senate, accused insurrectionist Domenic Pezzola was ordered detained until trial by Magistrate Judge Robin M. Meriweather. Inner City Press live tweeted it, below. There was an appeal.

  On June 7, months after the DC Circuit's decision in US v. Munchel, DDC  Judge Amit Mehta held a proceeding on OathKeeper Jason Dolan, and denied DOJ's request to keep him locked up pending trial. Inner City Press live tweeted it here
US v. Jason Dolan, with OathKeepers cited, DDC Judge Amit Mehta has returned and is about to rule on whether detention until trial.

 Judge Mehta: Mr. Dolan, can you hear me? Dolan: Yes, sir. Judge Mehta: I am apply a de novo review standard. Liberty is the norm. But Mr. Dolan is charged with destruction of government property.

 Judge Mehta: Let me cut to the chase. This is a close call. Two aspects weight against Mr. Dolan. His participation in bringing guns to the hotel, where Quick Reaction Force was set up. They returned to the hotel on Jan 7, with three long-gun boxes.

 Judge Mehta: Also, I am convinced Mr. Dolan possesses weapons, the neighbor says multiple weapons. His wife was carrying an AR-15. And a third: on January 6, though he says he didn't destroy property. But why did he walk toward House Speaker's Office?

Judge Mehta: All of that said, I don't put Mr. Dolan in the same category as the other defendants in his case, including Ms. Watkins.

Judge Mehta: Here, we do not have the communication showing state of mind. Other said they were "looking for the Speaker." But for Dolan, the communications are not there. And he did not really communicate with the OathKeepers after January 6.

Judge Mehta: He has no prior criminal history. 20 years in the Marines. By contrast, Mr. Harrelson used a gun to shoot at his neighbor's dog. So, I deny US motion, they've fallen just short of the line for detention.

Judge Mehta: Conditions including no weapons in the home, if has control of weapons outside the home, turn 'em over to the FBI through counsel. Next is July 2nd at 11 am, by Zoom

We will have more on this.
