I caught this over at Crooks and Liars, but I went directly to the source:
Capitol Riot suspect in tears at sentencing. Attorney says he is remorseful for crime that is 'forever part of American history'
54-year-old Robert Palmer of Tampa pled guilty to assaulting police on January 6.
And he is a fuckin’ winner.
WASHINGTON — Robert Palmer, 54, of Tampa admitted in U.S. District Court on Monday that he was the man wearing a red, white and blue “Trump” jacket while attacking police protecting the entrance to the Lower West Terrace of the US Capitol January 6.
Palmer told U.S. District Court Judge Tanya Chutkan he was the one identified in Department of Justice images who threw a wooden plank at police, sprayed a fire extinguisher at officers until it was empty and then threw the empty fire extinguisher canister at the line of police.
Palmer is pleading guilty to FELONY ASSAULT against a police officer. And he is expected to get between 47-56 months in prison. And brother does Palmer KNOW that he fucked up. Palmer was crying at the court hearing, and he is reportedly selling his home because he expects years in prison.
Couldn’t happen to a nicer guy.
