Streaming From US Capitol Edward Lang Detained In SDNY on Jan 19 Back to DC Feb 2

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

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Jan 19 – Among the criminal cases started after the events in the U.S. Capitol on January 6 is that of Edward Jacob Lang.

On January 19 he was detained in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York. Inner City Press live tweeted it, here and below.

From the complaint: "the investigative agencies began receiving  tips from the public related to the civil unrest and breach of the United States Capitol and  multiple identified LANG as being involved. The tips included photographs of LANG on the  grounds of the Capitol on January 6, 2021. At least one photograph, shown below, identified  Instagram @realjakelang (the “Subject’s Instagram”) as the account used by LANG. The  photograph appears to have been posted at some point during or after the attack on the Capitol,  and depicts LANG wearing a black jacket with numerous silver zippers and a ribbed pattern on  the shoulders, standing on the steps of the Capitol. LANG captioned the photograph, is “1776  has commenced.”

From Inner City Press' thread on the detention hearing: Lang posted a photo of himself on Instagram, per the Complaint, with the caption: "“Pepper spray really does wonders for your complexion #1776.”

 Lang just said he is 25. "one year at Hunter College in Manhattan" Inner City Press @innercitypress · 1h Agent Rudnick: Yes, I signed the removal affidavit. Defense: That's not the affidavit we've seen.

Judge: You're probably referring to the probable cause affidavit, by FBI Special Agent LaNard Taylor. Defense: Yes.

 Judge: What is Mr. Lang's position on Rule 20? Defense lawyer: I don't know.

[Rule 20: A prosecution may be transferred... to the district where the defendant is arrested... if: (1) the defendant states in writing a wish to plead guilty or nolo contendere" etc AUSA: The government is seeking detention, and I believe the defendant is consenting to it without prejudice. Judge: Is that correct? Defense: Yes.

Now Lang will speak with his lawyer until 5 pm about Rule 20, possible plea in SDNY.

Lang is back - his lawyer apologizes for bringing in associate not admitted in SDNY or EDNY. Judge says there probably won't be more proceedings here- it's headed to DC.

Defense: We will not proceed with nolo plea here, waiving Rule 20 rights.

AUSA: Marshals tell me actual transfer to DC is unlikely for weeks due to COVID. Judge: OK, status update in 2 weeks then.

 Lang proceeding is ending with requests for medical treatment for bruised foot - and for protective custody due to "controversy of the case."

Lang's lawyer asked for it, but Judge says can't order that. DDC hearing set for Tuesday Feb 2, 1 pm
