J6 defendants Casey Cusick, his aged father James Cusick, and David Lesperance, a household pal who can be aged, are dealing with as much as three years in jail for strolling into the Capitol constructing on January 6 for 9 minutes to make use of the toilet.
Once they entered the Capitol constructing, a cop instructed them the way to get to the toilet whereas different surrounding regulation enforcement officers waved the large crowd of peaceable demonstrators into the constructing as lawmakers licensed the stolen 2020 election outcomes.
Police are documented in movies of the “crime scene” taking selfies with the protesters who can be later listed on the FBI’s Most Needed Checklist as “home terrorists” for stepping foot within the constructing.
Casey, a father of three, James, a 74-year-old pastor and purple coronary heart recipient and David, a 70-year outdated grandfather, are charged with 4 federal felonies for stopping to make use of the toilet within the Capitol constructing, together with Knowingly Getting into or Remaining in any Restricted Constructing or Grounds With out Lawful Authority, Disorderly or Disruptive Conduct in a Restricted Constructing, and Violent Entry and Disorderly Conduct on Capitol Grounds, according to the Division of Justice.
To on a regular basis People, the federal government’s fees in opposition to Casey, James and David are bogus, absurd and preposterous. However the litigation won’t be an open and shut case.
The percentages are stacked in opposition to J6 defendants on trial within the District of Columbia, the place the pool of potential jurors has a 92 % fee of voting for Joe Biden within the District of Columbia. District federal judges have nearly resoundingly sided with the federal government in opposition to so-called insurrectionists, leading to an amazing, unprecedently excessive conviction fee for J6 defendants.
The Justice Division’s U.S. Legal professional’s places of work have secured a 99.8% conviction rate on not less than one cost in every case, together with half by responsible pleas.
The Casey, Lesperance trial started Monday. On the time of this publication, Casey, James, and David are litigating their case in US District Federal Court docket.
“We’re going to must combat for honest jurors,” protection legal professional John Pierce, representing the Cusicks and Leserpance, instructed The Gateway Pundit forward of jury choice. “That is outright intimidation ways.
“They don’t actually care about throwing these guys in jail. What they care about are the tens of millions of individuals, who won’t merely bow to tyrants, that can hear about them being thrown in jail for going to the Capitol to lift their voices. I imply, that’s what it’s about.”
Casey Cusick described the trauma he and his household have endured after being terrorized by the FBI, surveilled and stalked by the bureau’s brokers for 2 and half years, the monetary burdens of being deemed a “home terrorist” by the federal authorities whereas dealing with the prospect of years in jail for the couple of minutes he spent within the lavatory.
“I imagine, past a shadow of any doubt in my thoughts, that is political persecution,” Casey instructed TGP in an unique interview. “They’re threatening each patriot.
“They’re going after our nation — they’re coming after us as a result of there’s one factor they’re making an attempt to show: Don’t you ever assist Donald Trump ever once more,” he stated. “They’re are coming in spite of everything conservatives, however it’s primarily to ship a message: ‘Don’t you ever assist Donald Trump. Don’t you ever buck the system. Don’t you ever protest in opposition to the federal government as a result of we’re in command of you. You haven’t any rights, You haven’t any privileges, until we inform you.’”
When Casey, James and David arrived on the Nationwide Mall to attend President Trump’s speech, they’d no concept that they might develop into suspects within the FBI’s most investigated case in US historical past.
We went to the rally as a result of Trump needed us to return up there to assist him. We had no intention to enter the Capitol. That was one thing that simply occurred the day of. We waited an hour and a half within the Secret Service line in to get to the entrance of the stage, to have the ability to rise up near President Trump. He stated on the finish of the rally, ‘Now we’re gonna go right down to the Capitol, peacefully protest our proper to to protest an election and we needed to go down.’
Round 2:15 pm, we began strolling down towards the Capitol. By that point, we already received textual content alerts that fraud Mike Pence fraudulently licensed the election. That’s after they all supposedly received fearful of all of us ‘tyrants’ that entered. The Capitol constructing was lined with individuals — you couldn’t even see the steps.
We received as much as the Capitol round 2:30 pm. There have been no barricades. There have been no policemen even outdoors. Tright here have been simply lots of people simply standing round chanting, ‘USA’ and standing with their flags.
Individuals have been climbing up the scaffold. Now we all know from the video that’s been launched a number of the individuals stirring the gang up and doing the stupidity have been undercover cops and Antifa in Trump gear. We walked round and stood on the steps for perhaps a half hour. It was freezing chilly. I imply, it was like within the low 30s.
The wind was blowing actually exhausting. My dad was freezing, and I ended up having to go the toilet after some time. I noticed an open door on the left of the Capitol steps. It was open.
I noticed the one-hundredth Grandma and baby stroll out of the Capitol. I’m like, ‘Hey, I gotta go the toilet, perhaps we may go inside.’ We walked inside and folks have been simply strolling round — individuals of each race, each ethnicity, you title, it anyone and all people was in there– it wasn’t simply white males like they the federal government and the media tried to painting.
There have been about six cops with helmets on standing to left once we walked in. Individuals have been speaking to them. I’ve video of them taking photos with individuals.
I finally went as much as a police officer and stated, ‘Is there a toilet I can use? He pointed me in direction of it. I went into in direction of the restroom, the road was like 60 deep, I imply, it was so deep. I used to be simply overwhelmed.
In line with the Division of Justice, 55 January 6 defendants have been charged with conspiracy for allegedly premeditating a plan previous to the Capitol riot to “hinder a congressional continuing, regulation enforcement and injure officers.” Leaders of the Proud Boys and the Oath Keepers, who didn’t enter the Capitol constructing, have been discovered responsible of “seditious conspiracy.” The federal government claims they conspired a terror assault to “violently overthrow the federal government.”
In the meantime, a plurality of protesters have been waved into the Capitol by police. A police officer even instructed Cusick in direction of the Home Flooring throughout the official continuing when he requested her the way to exit the constructing. Casey defined:
It was undoubtedly like if you happen to invited any person over to your home, after which name the cops on him for breaking and coming into. Identical precise factor. There’s footage of the cops waving individuals to return by the constructing.
Individuals have been chanting, “USA,’ and, ‘Whose home? Our home!’ We weren’t in there to interrupt something. We weren’t in there to do something. Truthfully, we simply thought we have been allowed to go together with so many individuals going out and in.
The police by no means stated, ‘Sir, you guys can’t be in right here.’ We may hear one thing over the loudspeaker, however it was so muffled. You couldn’t perceive a factor they have been saying whereas individuals have been chanting, ‘USA, USA, USA.’
As we seemed for the exit, I requested a police officer, ‘How can I get out of right here? Can I’m going again from the door I got here in?
She replied, ‘No, Don’t return that approach. You bought to return this manner.’ I don’t know what it’s, however one thing about what she simply instructed me to do felt completely fallacious. I started strolling in the wrong way to exit the constructing and he or she didn’t even attempt to cease me or something.
I later came upon whereas researching a map of the constructing that she was main us to stroll proper on the Home flooring — that she was waving us to go! I’m glad that I didn’t comply with her instruction there. I rotated. We walked again out. We weren’t even in there for a full 10 minutes.
As Casey, James and David made their approach away from the Capitol grounds, they witnessed police beating protesters with nightsticks. Legislation enforcement officers have been additionally seen throughout the identical timeframe indiscriminately capturing at individuals’s heads with rubber bullets and throwing canisters of tear fuel and flash grenades on the crowd.
“Riot police with shields have been brutally assaulting Trump supporters. I noticed a cop busting a man’s head broad open. I’ve an image of it — the person had his head cut up broad open — I imply, he had a two or three inches gash within the aspect of his head,” he stated. “We weren’t there to combat the cops. There have been folks that began pushing and shoving, which, to this present day, I don’t know in the event that they have been even Trump supporters as a result of we now know the way infiltrated the gang was.”
Cops costume as civilians are seen in newly launched police cam footage committing crimes and scary others to comply with go well with.

When Casey, James and John left Washington, DC, they’d no inclination that they’d dedicated any crime on January 6.
“We walked away and took the Metro again to the lodge. After we received again to the lodge, all people and their brothers known as us. We didn’t have good cell service in any respect that day as a result of we have been amongst so many hundreds of individuals. All people requested if there was an rebel, and we have been like, ‘No, there was no rebel.’ However that’s all they have been listening to on each information channel,” Casey stated. “I assumed it was one of many biggest days in American historical past. Individuals really lastly stood as much as tyranny.”
Days later, David obtained a go to from the feds:
Somebody known as the FBI and left a tip on David, personally. On January 20, an agent went to David’s home and interrogated him. He was scared. I instructed David, ‘I might have stated I’m not speaking to you with out a lawyer.’ However David instructed him he went to the January 6 protest together with his pastor. They requested for his title. He instructed them, ‘I can’t offer you any names. His spouse then requested if it was a volunteer interview, they stated, ‘Sure,’ and he or she then instructed them to, ‘Get the hell out of right here. We don’t need something to do with you.’ And they also left.
They began following Dave. They adopted David to my father’s home and came upon who my dad was. I don’t know in the event that they received permission to or not, however they by some means hacked into his cellphone and received an image of me and my dad standing in entrance of the Trump Worldwide Lodge in DC on January 5.
They stalked us for six months, from January 2021 till June 25 after they confirmed up at my home at 7:45 Within the morning. 9 or ten cops with AR-15s drawn — each considered one of them had pistols or AR-15s on me, my little woman who was three years outdated on the time, my one-year-old and my spouse — scared the residing daylights out of them.
They cuff me and throw me within the automotive. I’m like, ‘What the heck is happening?’ An agent requested me, ‘The place’s your dad?” I do not know or I suppose he’s at residence. My dad’s home was being raided on the similar time.
The agent may inform I used to be fairly pissed. He instructed me, ‘Look, man, we aren’t doing this as a result of we wish to do it. It’s orders from DC.’ He confirmed me a warrant from Washington, DC, and stated, ‘We’re simply following orders.’ I assumed, ‘This sounds all too acquainted, similar to the Gestapo.’
They drove away with me and he instructed me that they have been going to allow us to out of jail that evening. They did, which I’m grateful for. I used to be scared, although, as a result of my spouse and my two little ladies have been on the home and the SWAT crew wouldn’t even allow them to again inside whereas there have been eight males armed there. I had no concept — I’ve heard horror tales about what a number of the these law enforcement officials have finished.
To this present day, my daughter is uncertain if cops are good or dangerous. Any banging noises, triggers PTSD, for me too. It received so dangerous to the place we ended up having to maneuver out of the home as a result of each time any person knocked on my door, my little ladies are afraid if it’s the police coming again once more.
After I moved from Florida to Oklahoma, they confirmed up at my home to do ‘a house go to.’ On one Sunday morning, they confirmed up at my door earlier than 6:30 am, banging on my door, scared the crap out of my household and me, simply to do an in residence go to. Inform me that’s not harassment.
WATCH Feds go to J6er for utilizing the toilet on January 6 together with his aged father:
Nationwide and native media dragged the Cusicks, Lesperance and their household by the mud following their arrest propagating the DOJ narrative that they’re insurrectionists and home terrorists.
“Each outlet on the market — the Washington Publish, Huffington Publish, the New York Publish, the New York Instances –all of all of them posted this nonsense,” Casey stated. “Native information networks in Orlando got here to my dad’s home, my home, knocked on our doorways, wrote hit items. One piece revealed by Legislation and Order claimed ‘Parishioner activates the pastor within the huge January 6 case.’ None of that stuff was true. David was intimidated, scared, and didn’t know what to do. All the pieces was about mocking slandering.”
“The Gateway Pundit was the one information outlet, on the very, starting that revealed an article telling the truth about us.”
Casey defined how the fake news surrounding his “position within the Capitol riot” resulted in rapid job loss:
I had a small enterprise on the time, which I misplaced. I used to be making actually good cash as a dealer. I labored with a few realtors that have been supposedly Christian individuals. As quickly as they noticed me on the native information, they ghosted me. Considered one of them really nonetheless owes me cash however by no means would reply my calls. He by no means spoke to me ever once more after that. I misplaced my small enterprise. I couldn’t discover work as a result of no person needs to rent a J6er. To this present day, I’ve but to search out constant or regular work since. I began my very own podcast known as ‘The Watchmen,’ which has helped me accrue donations — that’s helped me vastly.
Fortunately, I had some cash from promoting my home that I might have been in a position to dwell off. However that isn’t going to final eternally.
There aren’t too many individuals on the market that wish to assist Jan 6ers within the enterprise world. The loopy factor is, once we have been in jail, by the point I received out, we already had John Pierce as our lawyer. I’m grateful for John as a result of each time this primary occurred, it was ugly. No attorneys needed to the touch Jan 6. He did. I’m appreciative of John Pierce, he’s loyal to us. He’s an OG January 6er — all these different guys have got here on the scene later. John was there initially,
Dave instructed his earlier public defender, ‘I had no concept that I wasn’t allowed to go inside’ and that public defender stubborn him and instructed him ‘Sure, you probably did know precisely what you’re doing –. I don’t ever wish to hear you say one thing like that.’ How’s that sound for a public defender?
Regardless of the contaminated jury pool and corrupt judges, Pierce is assured the Cusicks and Lesperance can be acquitted.
“That is by far, is likely to be the very best likelihood anyone has to get a full-on jury verdict acquittal of all fees as a result of the info are most likely the very best of any info that we have now within the case,” he stated. “These defendants are just about essentially the most credible and sympathetic defendants in any case. Our plan is to win this — I imply, each defendant, each cost, not responsible.”
Non-public counsel for J6 defendants prices roughly $20,000 a month as protection attorneys sq. off in opposition to the federal government and its limitless assets for years on finish. Pierce, the founding father of the Nationwide Constitutional Legislation Union, represents 36 January 6 defendants and has taken most of the instances pro-bono whereas the defendants elevate cash to pay him again. Thus far, with assist from our readers, The Gateway Pundit has raised over $2 million for political prisoners and their families.
