WATCH: New Videos Showing Jacob "QAnon Shaman" Chansley Entering Capitol, Helped Convince Judge To Keep Him Detained

 Last week, U.S. District Court Judge Royce Lamberth refused to release Mesa's Jacob Chansley from jail pending trial for his involvement in the January 6 insurrection at the U.S. Capitol. In part, he relied on unreleased videos of his actions referenced by prosecutors.

Yesterday, Lamberth ordered the clerk to make those videos available on the court's website. Here are those videos, showing Chansley (aka Jake Angeli, aka QAnon Shaman) on the scaffolding outside the building and entering the building as fellow rioters broke through the windows next to him.

The videos show the anger and the mob mentality, but were mainly used to show that Chansley was not "invited in" thinking that he was just going to observe Congress as they debated whether Arizona's Electoral College votes should be accepted.
