The U.S. Department of Justice has dropped felony charges against a man who attended the protests at the U.S. Capitol on January 6.
Brandon Straka, founder of the #WalkAway campaign encouraging liberals to leave the Democratic Party, pleaded guilty last week to a misdemeanor disorderly conduct charge.
The DOJ dropped the felony charges against him after he agreed to sit down for an interview with federal authorities.
Straka faces a maximum of six months in prison, according to the Post Millennial.
Prosecutors admitted in their criminal complaint that Straka never set foot in the U.S. Capitol building.
Strake wrote several tweets on January 6 on his Twitter account.
“I arrived at the Capitol a few hours ago as Patriots were storming from all sides,” he allegedly wrote.
“I was quite close to entering myself as police began tear gassing us from the door. I inhaled tear gas & got it in my eyes. Patriots began exiting shortly after saying Congress had been cleared.”
“I’m completely confused. For 6-8 weeks everybody on the right has been saying ‘1776!’ & that if congress moves forward it will mean a revolution!” another tweet read. “So congress moves forward. Patriots storm the Capitol — now everybody is virtual signaling their embarrassment that this happened.”
“Also- be embarrassed & hide if you need to- but I was there. It was not Antifa at the Capitol. It was freedom loving Patriots who were DESPERATE to fight for the final hope of our Republic because literally nobody cares about them. Everyone else can denounce them. I will not.”

A significant majority of Republicans believe that liberal activists deserve more blame for the January 6 incident at the U.S. Capitol.
According to a survey from Public Religion Research Institute, 61 percent of Republicans place a lot of responsibility for the incident on liberal activists and Democrats.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats’ January 6 commission is already starting to backfire.
According to an NBC News poll, only 59% say they are concerned about the protest on January 6 at the U.S. Capitol.
However, 40% say they are either just “somewhat concerned” (14 percent) or not concerned at all (26 percent).
A recent poll from Harvard CAPS-Harris Poll survey showed that 58 percent of voters believe her commission is biased towards Democrats.
“Americans want an examination of the riots over the summer and the origins of the virus over investigating Jan. 6th,” co-director of the Harvard CAPS-Harris Poll survey, Mark Penn, said. “The voters reject the Pelosi move to toss Republicans off of the committee and see it now as just a partisan exercise.”
Back in July, Fox News host Tucker Carlson delivered a powerful segment asking a slew of important questions about Pelosi’s political investigation into January 6.
Carlson asked his viewers to consider one major detail: what role did the FBI play that day?
Carlson blasted the FBI and Democrats, saying, “Why is the Justice Department still tonight, hiding thousands of hours of footage from inside the Capitol that day? What could possibly be on that tape that we’re not allowed to see?”
“Who killed Ashli Babbitt and what was the justification for killing her? Government officials get to shoot unarmed protesters in the neck for trespassing and we’re not allowed to know who did it, or why? Is that really the new standard? Does that same standard apply to BLM supporters too, or just the people who voted for Donald Trump…people that don’t matter?” Carlson asked.
”What role did the FBI play that day? We know for certain there were FBI informants in the crowd at the Capitol. How many of them made it inside the Capitol and then encouraged others to break the law? Don’t pretend the FBI doesn’t stage crimes,” Carlson said.
Carlson continued: “We know for a fact they do it regularly. We know for a fact they right before the election in Michigan for political effect.”
“Every American has the right to hear the answers and hear them immediately. January 6th is being used as a pretext to strip millions of disfavored Americans of their core constitutional rights,” Carlson said.
“We are witnessing the most aggressive crackdown on civil liberties in our lifetime — that is not an exaggeration. Yet, thanks to Nancy Pelosi, the January 6th committee will now operate as she wants the country to operate — as a one-party state,” he added.
