Elliot Resnick Entered Capitol Jan 6 While With Jewish Press Now Pleads Guilty in DDC

by Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Book Substack

FEDERAL COURTHOUSE, Jan 30 –   Elliot Resnick, formerly of the Jewish Press when he entered the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021, was arrested in New York on March 16, 2023 on a District for the District of Columbia warrant.  Inner City Press caught wind of and reported it that morning: 

"today in SDNY Magistrates Court, Inner City Press learns we'll see Elliot Resnick: agent says complied with DOJ's News Media Policy,” which says it limits on the way prosecutors investigate and charge members of the press." Tweet here, credited here.   

At 3:45 pm in the afternoon, he was presented before U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Magistrate Judge Katharine H. Parker, and released on the US' consent on $75,000 bond. Inner City Press live tweeted, thread here:

OK- Jan 6 defendant Elliot Resnick has been brought into SDNY Magistrates Court by US Marshals. There's already a guy here who says he came to sign a bond, so it seems a deal for release.

AUSA: Defendant was arrested at 6 am today. Judge: I have a financial affidavit. I approve appointment of counsel.  Agent: I need to switch a "her" to a he / him in my affidavit. Judge: Done.

 Judge Parker: The complaint involves January 6 at the Capitol, including parading therein and assault of or interference with law enforcement. Mr Resnick, do you understand what you are being charges with? Resnick: I believe so, yes.

AUSA: We have agreed to bail of $75,000 to be co-signed by his mother. No DC except for court or to meet with lawyers.  Federal Defender: OK

Judge: I approve the package. Mr Resnick, you will be released today. You will reside with your mother, where you have been residing

Jump cut to January 30, 2024 in the DDC: "Elliot Resnick, 40, of New York, New York, pleaded guilty in the District of Columbia to one count of obstructing law enforcement during a civil disorder, a felony. U.S. District Court Judge Rudolph Contreras scheduled a sentencing hearing for June 12, 2024.     According to court documents, Resnick traveled via bus from New York City to Washington, D.C., on Jan. 6, 2021. Court documents say that Resnick, the Chief Editor of The Jewish Press, a news media organization, did not travel to Washington, D.C., in his official capacity, nor was he acting in his official capacity as Chief Editor during any of the actions or events of Jan. 6, 2021."
