Richard Barnett, redneck asswipe who put his feet on Nancy Pelosi's desk on Jan. riot, goes on trial today.
Richard Barnett federal trial begins for Jan. 6 riot
NORTHWEST ARKANSAS (KNWA/FOX24) — On Monday, January 9, the federal trial will begin in Washington D.C. for the Gravette man accused of participating in the January 6, 2021 capitol insurrection.
Richard Barnett went viral during the riot as photographs of him inside Nancy Pelosi’s office circulated on social media.
His trial date has been postponed multiple times, but Judge Christopher Cooper denied the defense’s most recent request to delay the trial until March.
Now the defense is asking the court to drop the most recent charge filed against Barnett, which came down from the prosecution on December 22.
The insurrection is one of those moments in history where many will look back and remember exactly where they were as they watched it unfold. University of Arkansas Political Science Professor Andrew Dowdle said Barnett made the insurrection hit home for people in Northwest Arkansas.

I hate him. I really, really hate him.
I keep thinking of Pelosi’s staffers, hiding underneath the table, utterly terrified for their lives. And this is just a big joke to this asshole.

The whole J6 mob was stereotypical white trash. Who knew America’s trailer parks and country clubs were so full of people who want to destroy democracy? These clowns think they’ll be better off under a dictatorship propping up the super rich, who have allegiance to no country and only wish to exploit the likes of them. How do they not understand that this is not a good road to do down?

I read yesterday that he stated under oath that he was a "big fan of the Constitution" so the prosecution quizzed him on it -and he failed the knowledge test.
Reminds me of Trump saying how much he loved the Bible, but couldn't actually tell anyone anything it said.

When they’re done with this guy, let’s get to the “movers and shakers” who had a hand in this: lardass, Giuliani, Congress people who were texting the whereabouts of the Speaker, those who gave tours, those who encouraged the crowd to “take names and kick ass,” and the list goes on.

I hope Nancy Pelosi finds the time to attend this idiot's trial, every. single. day. And that she sits where he can see her... do not cross her, she's as tough in a cage match as Liz Cheney.

Admit it Richard, she’s the only reason you were there that day, you had a massive boner the whole time and were bitterly disappointed you never found her. You jerk yourself to sleep every night thinking about her.

You people are terrible. The poor man got swept into the building when the crowd surged and was just walking around trying to find a place to sit. When he got to that horrible Pelosi woman's office, the mean reporters asked him to put his feet on the desk so they dould take a picture. He didn't know! Really! He's a victim too!

Like many others facing years of imprisonment he is now finding some version of remorse to what he and others did on January 6th. If he weren't caught and prosecuted he'd be bragging about his actions instead.

Lock this bitch up for at least 5 yrs. This country is over the constant barrage of bullshit that spews out of the hypocritical terrorist party known as the GOP. They would run over democracy again if we let them. Normal, regular people are beyond sick and tired of these MAGA redneck pieces of shit trying to interfere with their lives.
He'll surely be convicted and it's a felony conviction so that means no more guns when he gets out of prison. These cunts would die without their guns, nothing is more important to them.

The list of this guy’s excuses are laughable.
I was there to sightsee and got pushed in.
I was looking for the restroom and admiring the art.
The stun gun I had I didn’t think worked because it had been in the shower.
His lawyer needs to turn in his bar card if this is the best defense he could come up with.

I haven't read his story. Did he do any physical damage or attack anyone inside the building, or just have his mug photographed with his hoof on Pelosi's desk? If that's all he did I can't see them putting him in prison.

Yeah, but did he do any of the breaking, or did he just enter after the doors had been broken open? There are others who went into the building who didn't get prison sentences at trial.

From the Washington Post, for R33: "In addition to obstructing an official proceeding, Barnett was convicted of two felonies related to carrying a dangerous weapon during the attack on the Capitol and a felony charge of civil disorder. The four misdemeanors he was convicted of included theft of government property, meaning the empty envelope."

He had a very large stun gun on his hip. Try walking into a Federal building with that and see what happens to you.
Here are the complete list of charges:

From r40’s link, I hadn’t realized (or, more appropriately didn’t remember) they arrested him on 1/8, a mere two days after.
That’s good work.

Also, the jury found him guilty on all eight counts in less than two hours. There's no point in questioning whether the system was fair to him. It was an open-and-shut case.
|by Anonymous||reply 44||January 23, 2023 9:56 PM
Notice I never said he didn't deserve imprisonment, I just said if all he did was go in the building and get his photo taken they probably wouldn't lock him up. But based on R40's list of charges it looks like he was far more involved and will likely go to prison.
Now, R41, DL is not a place for middle school children. Go do your homework son.
