White House Entries By Amina Washington Bey Trigger Medical Tests and His Detention in DDC

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

DC FEDERAL COURT, Nov 25 – Amina Washingon-Bey is detained for illegal attempt to enter the White House, repeatedly.  

On November 25 U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia Magistrate Judge Robin M. Meriweather held a proceeding. Inner City Press covered it - and live tweeted, here:

AUSA urges putting next status conference on December 11, to allow a doctor's report - and to detain Washington-Bey until then.

From docket: "a White House stay away order in Cases 1:20-mj-059, 1:20-mj063, & 1:20-mj-175... sentenced for those matters to time-served."

 Fill-in Federal Defender says December 11 would be fine. Clerk recommends 1 pm, for video.  AUSA asks for exclusion of time from now to Dec 11 [under Speedy Trial Act.] Judge Meriweather grants it, and adjourns the matter.  

More from the docket: "On November 22, 2020, at approximately 2:43 p.m., an individual later identified as Amina Washington-Bey  was arrested for unlawfully entering the restricted area around the White House that is referred to as Sherman Park.

United States Secret Service Uniformed Officer Kiounte Lineberger, while in full police uniform on a marked police bicycle patrolling the area, observed the defendant exiting the secure/restricted area by sliding through the security barrier. This security barrier is posted with two signs that state "Restricted Area Do Not Enter". There are many of these signs clearly posted on the east side of the park. The defendant was immediately detained and placed in handcuffs. The defendant identified as a male and was searched by Officer Lineberger.

 Officer Lineberger requested a NCIC/WALES check and White House visitor’s list check through the United Secret Service Joint Operations Center. The defendant was found to not have any outstanding wants or warrants. The defendant also did not have any scheduled appointments to visit the White House Complex. The defendant identified himself as Amina Washington-Bey."

The case is US v. WASHINGTON-BEY, District of Columbia, Docket Number: 1:20-mj-00235
