Federal prosecutors walk back sensational allegation of plot to kill lawmakers during Capitol siege
The acting U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia Michael Sherwin announced on Friday that there is no "direct evidence" indicating that the crowd of people who breached the Capitol on Jan. 6 had any intention of killing or kidnapping members of Congress.
He told reporters, "We don't have any direct evidence of kill-capture teams," which seemed to contradict federal prosecutors in Arizona who had alleged on Thursday in a court filing that there was evidence rioters wanted "to capture and assassinate elected officials."
Reuters reported that Sherwin was attempting to "walk back" the claims filed in Arizona, which were about Jacob Chansey, the so-called "Qanon shaman" who was shirtless and wearing horns in the Senate chamber. He allegedly left a note saying, "it's only a matter of time, justice is coming."
Sherwin said that his office in D.C. is taking the lead on prosecuting crimes related to the breach of the Capitol, adding that there may have been a "disconnect" with other offices on some of the evidence.
The mother-son duo appear to join the chase, and are both seen holding flex cuffs in their hands while in pursuit. Both officers ultimately escaped to a lower level of the building, and Eisenhart then appears to shout at the officers while leaning over a banister.
Munchel and Eisenhart then appear to enter the Senate chamber through the same area that the officers were guarding.

He could have impaled someone with the horns. They could be considered weapons if they were sharpened. One of the females arested probably had a nail file so she was an accomplice.
The only thing they won't be walking back is the insistence Biden won fair and square. They are petrified their own people will see through this blatant fraud.
