Snap shot of DOJ US Capitol Cases updates of 13 cases -ALL RoR’d -updated confirmation of 4th Officer suicide.
This is a very long & detailed article with dozens of embedded links. PLEASE National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255 text TALK 741741 - tomorrow will be better but you need to be here
In a recent article I discussed the various Capitol Trump-QANON-MAGA-Domestic-Terrorist (TQMDT) and how a vast majority have been released either on a minimal bond or simply released on Personal Recognizes (RoR’d) and rhetorically asked a few basic questions. So ICYMI, see recently published article
I believe my track record shows, that I’m not one to make an assertion sans receipts to affirm my assertion -so I decided that I should lay down a few fact cards —because it seems vexing that the fact nearly 8 out of 9 defendants are released on personal recognizance and are largely out living their best life.
Meanwhile Metropolitan PD Officer Gunther Hashida who responded to the January 6, 2021 Trump-Domestic-Terrorist violent siege on our Capitol, took his own life. I’m not a mental health professional, but I can’t help but think this will have a cascading effect within the US Capitol Police and Metropolitan Police Departments
Asking for help is okay & it’s okay to not be okay
Please if you you or a loved one is struggling or having thoughts of suicide, PLEASE call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255 or text TALK to 741741.

…Officer Kyle DeFreytag served in the city’s 5th District and was at the Capitol to enforce curfew violations, Metropolitan Police confirmed. Chief Robert J. Contee III sent a message to the police force notifying personnel of DeFreytag’s death last month.
How dare and I mean how DARE Laura Ingram and Fox News disrespect the four officers…
I previously shared my thoughts on Ingram and Fox News with respect to their hourly targeting of Dr Fauci —see article here and I included a video
The same day Metropolitan Police Officer Michael Fanone testified before the House Select Committee —this is a voicemail he received from one of Trump’s-QANON-MAGA-DOMESTIC-TERRORIST. I highly recommend you watch the full segment
And because as I’ve repeatedly shown —largely in my presentation of facts and supporting documents. I do not understand the USAO-DC weird refusal to ask for detention is — I’m not going to be polite, it’s fucking insane.
How do you think these Law Enforcement Officers feel?
That everyday Fox News, Right-wing Reporters, Republican Members of Congress are all trying to deny what we all saw/heard on January 6, 2021.
Donald “hitman” Trump summoned his Domestic Terrorist and neither he or Trump Jr or Giuliani or Mo Brooks have been charged
Trump et al told his domestic terrorist to go to the Capitol… yet prosecutors are consistently not pushing for Detention.
Look there are a few times that I vehemently disagree with the DOJ and will likely continue to do so, but on this issue?
What (and I can not stress this enough) actual fucking-fuck is wrong with prosecutors?
Why are you not requesting Detention pending trial?
This isn’t me saying with a broad-brush that the DOJ is wrong, no this is a very isolated and singular issue. And just because I largely respect and appreciate the current Attorney General and FBI Director that doesn’t mean I’m ever going to give them a wholesale pass.
And I’ll fully acknowledge that I don’t have the complete set of facts. But here’s what I do know, hundreds (possibly thousands) of FBI, IRS, USS, DHS agents are doing the incredibly hard work of gathering evidence that prosecutors will use for either a plea agreement or at trial.
You want to honor law enforcement then at the very minimum request detention for the Trump-Domestic-Terrorist who assaulted law enforcement. Seems like common sense, no? Anything short of that, you (USAO-DC) are creating an untenable situation between your office and the FBI et al law enforcement officers that you work with. I was going to wait until I heard back from DOJ-Main-OPA, I sent them an email asking for comment. At the time of my email there were 556 criminal cases, of those 412 had not been detained pending trial; of the 412, over 370 the USAO-DC didn’t request detention. Instead the OPA referred me to the
…so last week I sent their office a tilt table that proved my numbers were 99.999% correct —even factoring in a one step deviation…still no response but then again I’m not a credential reporter… so let’s do a quick snapshot of cases and data because facts really do matter, or at least they should:
Defendant Jennifer Leigh Ryan -RoR’d
DDC-Case Number: 1:21-cr-50
Original Charges (January 2021)
18 U.S.C. § 1752(a)(1) and (2) -Knowingly Entering or Remaining in any Restricted Building or Grounds Without Lawful Authority
40 U.S.C. § 5104(e)(2)(D) and (G) —Disorderly Conduct on Capitol Grounds
Again I don’t know why some are falsely saying that Ryan et al were only charged and there’s isn’t a Superseder, because that’s not accurate and I can actually provide you with the numerous court documents. Shall we? Because the sheer volume of both disinformation and misinformation is like an entire flock of screaming goats.
Case Status: Arrested on 1/15/21. Pleaded not guilty as to counts 1s-4s of the superseding information on 3/9/21. Defendant remains released on personal recognizance. Status conference held 7/15/21.
There have been two not one but two superseding information(s) docketed since the original January 2021 Complaint. ProTip if you see the docket entry of “information” —this typically means that you should be on the lookout (BOLO) for a potential Plea Agreement… sometimes this happens immediately and sometimes it can take weeks or months or even years (especially if the Defendant prerequisite cooperation in said plea agreement has yet to conclude)
SUPERSEDER #1 (SR1) docketed on 2/16/21 Defendants Ryan et al
DDC-ECF Document No 18 SUPERSEDING INFORMATION as to JENNIFER LEIGH RYAN (1) count(s) 1s, 2s, 3s, 4s, JASON LEE HYLAND (2) count(s) 1, 2, 3, 4, KATHERINE STAVELEY SCHWAB (3) count(s) 1, 2, 3, 4. (zstd) Modified on 2/16/2021 — the added counts via SR1 are Counts 3 and 4;
40 U.S.C. § 5104(e)(2)(D) —Violent Entry and Disorderly Conduct in : a Capitol Building
40 U.S.C. § 5104(e)(2)(G) -Parading, Demonstrating, or Picketing in : a Capitol Building
SUPERSEDER #2 (SR2) docketed 6/7/21 Defendants Ryan et al
To be clear it appears Count Five only applies to co-Defendant KATHERINE STAVELEY SCHWAB —see DDC-ECF Document No 34 34 -2nd SUPERSEDING INFORMATION as to JENNIFER LEIGH RYAN (1) count(s) 1ss, 2ss, 3ss, 4ss, JASON LEE HYLAND (2) count(s) 1s, 2s, 3s, 4s, KATHERINE STAVELEY SCHWAB (3) count(s) 1s, 2s, 3s, 4s, 5s.

Defendant Michael J RUSYN also RoR’d
Case Number: 1:21-cr-303
Charge(s): 18 U.S.C. § 1752(a)(1) -Entering and Remaining in any Restricted Building or Grounds, 18 U.S.C. § 1752(a)(2) - Disorderly and Disruptive Conduct in a Restricted Building or Grounds , 40 U.S.C. § 5104(e)(2)(D) -Disorderly Conduct in a Capitol Building, 40 U.S.C. § 5104(e)(2)(G) - Parading, Demonstrating, or Picketing in a Capitol Building.
On April 9, 2021 Defendant Rusyn self-surrendered and later that day had his initial appearance the same afternoon.
Defendant Rusyn was charged via criminal information on 4/12/21. He pleaded not guilty to all counts on 4/26/21.
Defendant Rusyn remains released on personal recognizance
Case Documents: Rusyn Complaint, Michael_Rusyn_information and you’ll note that the DOJ-OPA Capitol Violence database does not include a copy of the Affidavit/Statement of Facts. Which means you need to access via DDC-ECF to read the Affidavit; https://ecf.dcd.uscourts.gov/doc1/04518464600
“Tell Pelosi we’re coming for that bitch.”
This Trump-QANON-MAGA-DOMESTIC-TERRORISTs chanting “Stop the Steal” and “we want Trump” and yet only a handful have been ordered detained pending trial… what kind of message is the USAO-DC sending to Trump-Domestic-Terrorist? That they can violently enter our Capitol. They can viciously beat hundreds of law enforcement officers. They can blatantly lie to the FBI and nearly 8 out of 10 Trump-Domestic-Terrorist don’t spend a single night in jail.
…members of the group shouted “Tell Pelosi we’re coming for that bitch,” called the police officers traitors, and chanted “Stop the Steal” and “We want Trump.” At one point, one of the rioters loudly attempted to broker an agreement with the police officers, yelling to the group about entering the House chamber and sitting down “calmly and quietly,” then speaking with officers about the same. RUSYN stood with this crowd, approximately 10 feet from the front of the group…
I call BS - Defendant Rusyn’s story, he lied to the FBI, repeatedly;
…February 17, 2021, MICHAEL JOSEPH RUSYN voluntarily spoke with an FBI Special Agent and Task Force Officer in Scranton, PA…RUSYN told the Agents that he was at the.. Capitol on January 6, 2021…part of a crowd that gathered outside of the Capitol. RUSYN said some people in the crowd were armed with weapons such as broom sticks with a nail or hook affixed to the ends. He took some of the weapons away from people but ended up being injured with a weapon in the process.
RUSYN said he was pushed inside the Capitol
…denied making a conscious decision to go inside. Once inside the Capitol, he used his cellular phone to take photos and videos. After taking photos and videos, his cellular phone ran out of memory so he decided to live stream video to Facebook. He remained inside the Capitol for approximately one hour.
Defendant Rusyn Plea Agreement/Hearing
Again you would only know about the July 29, 2021 Minute Entry by running/reading a docket report (see DDC-ECF August 2, 2021 Docket Report) the minute entry reads in part:
…proceedings held before Judge Amy Berman Jackson: Video (VTC) Status Conference as to MICHEAL JOSEPH RUSYN held on 7/29/2021.
Another Video (VTC) Status Conference is set for 9/1/2021 at 9:30 AM before Judge Amy Berman Jackson. If the status conference on 9/1/2021 is to be converted to a plea, the parties must email draft plea paperwork to the Court's Deputy Clerk at least two (2) business days before the hearing, and the signed paperwork must be emailed no later than the morning of the plea.
The Court makes a finding that it is in the Interests of Justice that the time between 7/29/2021 and 9/1/2021 shall be excluded from the Speedy Trial Act calculation (START XT).
Bond Status of Defendant: Defendant Remains on Personal Recognizance Bond
Defendant Nicholas RODEAN -also RoR’d
He was one of the very first Trump-Domestic-Terrorist arrested and charged and later indicted and later filed a Criminal Information
Charges: 18 U.S.C. § 1752(a)(1) -Entering and Remaining in a Restricted Building, 18 U.S.C. § 1752(a)(2) —Disorderly and Disruptive Conduct in a Restricted Building, 40 U.S.C. § 5104(e)(2)(D) -Violent Entry and Disorderly Conduct in a Capitol Building, 40 U.S.C. § 5104(e)(2)(G) —Parading, Demonstrating, or Picketing in a Capitol Building

Also while many of the links are behind an ECF pay wall - give me a few moments to upload to my Scribd Link (all the Documents are now uploaded)
Again this isn’t meant to say the whole of the DOJ is bad, it’s about the incongruous rationale of when prosecutors move for detention and mostly when they don’t. And this is why it is imperative that we should call them for what they are:
…and why are prosecutors letting them live their best life. To be clear this is a very and I mean very tiny snapshot —notwithstanding the data and facts do not lie. A vast majority of Trump’s QANON-MAGA-TERRORIST aren’t in custody. And it’s heartbreaking to see law enforcement taking their own lives. Four Law Enforcement Officers have taken their own lives. I genuinely do not know what else to say. So I’ll leave you with this
The American Crisis 1
“THESE are the times that try men's souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands by it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph. What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly: it is dearness only that gives every thing its value. Heaven knows how to put a proper price upon its goods; and it would be strange indeed if so celestial an article as FREEDOM should not be highly rated” -Thomas Payne

THESE are the times that try men's souls: The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of his country but he that stands it NOW, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like hall, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph. What we obtain, too cheap, we esteem too lightly:—'Tis dearness only that gives every thing its value. Heaven knows how to set a proper price upon its goods; and it wou?d be strange indeed, if so celestial an article as Freedom should not be highly rated. Britain, with an army to enforce her tyranny, has declared, that she has a right ( (not only to TAX) but “to BIND us in ALL CASES WHATSOEVER,” and if being bound in that manner is not slavery, then is there not such a thing as slavery upon earth. Even the expression is impious, for so unlimited a power can belong only to God.
Whether the Independence of the Continent was declared too soon, or delayed too long, I will not now enter into as an argument; my own simple opinion in that had it been eight months earlier, it would have been much better. We did not make a proper use of last winter, neither could we while we were in a dependent state. However, the fault, if it were one, was all our own; we have none to blame but ourselves.* But no great deal is lost yet; all that Howe has been doing for this month past is rather a ravage than a conquered which the spirit of the Jersies a year ago would have quickly repulsed, and which time and a little resolution with soon recover, and which time and a little resolution will soon recover. https://www.loc.gov/resource/rbpe.03902300/?st=text
