Original Article, 1/28/21, 2:30pm: "Arizona's "QAnon Shaman" Faces Arraignment Tomorrow On Jan. 6 Insurrection Charges; READ Detention Order"

 Arizona's self-described "QAnon Shaman" will be arraigned in federal court tomorrow on the six charges for his activities at the January 6 violent takeover of the U.S. Capitol.

Jacob Chansley (aka Jake Angeli) will appear at 2:30 (EST) for his arraignment, per a minute entry issued this afternoon. Chansley has been in custody since his arrest on January 9.

As reported in the Arizona Republic, Chansley - in his distinctive outfit and carrying a flag-strewn spear - left a threatening note for then Vice President Mike Pence. According to the detention order (below), he had also advocated on Twitter that "traitors within the United States government" should be identified and hanged.

Prosecutors had also convinced the U.S. Magistrate in Arizona to keep him in custody because he "had the motivations and capabilities to participate in similar unlawful acts." (aka lack of remorse).
