Capitol riots – Men seen carrying zip ties and wearing tactical gear on Senate floor during DC attack charged by FBI

CAPITOL rioters who were allegedly spotted carrying zip ties and wearing tactical gear on the Senate floor during the Washington, DC, attack have been charged by the FBI.

Both men were charged in federal court in the District of Columbia days after they were believed to be spotted in photos carrying zip ties.

They were depicted in photos after lawmakers from the Senate and the House of Representatives were evacuated during the frightening rampage on Wednesday, January 6.

According to the DOJ’s release, Brock a 53-year-old Air Force lieutenant combat veteran – was “charged with one count of knowingly entering or remaining in any restricted building or grounds without lawful authority and one count of violent entry and disorderly conduct on Capitol grounds.”

Brock is suspected to have illegally entered the Capitol building donning a green helmet, black and camouflage jacket, and beige pants, the DOJ said.

Munchel – who is said to be seen carrying plastic restraints inside the US Capitol – was charged with “one count of knowingly entering or remaining in any restricted building or grounds without lawful authority and one count of violent entry and disorderly conduct on Capitol grounds.”

Both men were arrested in their home states.

Terrifying zip tie pics – allegedly showing the two men – were published as other chilling images were released showing a man the FBI is seeking in connection to the planting of pipe bombs in DC ahead of the riots.

A law enforcement official told The Washington Post the FBI is looking into why protesters brought things like zip ties to DC, and whether any of Trump‘s supporters who attacked the US Capitol were conspiring to hurt lawmakers or take them hostage. 

“We’re not looking at this as a grand conspiracy, but we are interested in learning what people would do with things like zip ties,” the official said.

Munchel, a 30-year-old Nashville bartender, said he illegally entered the Capitol building alongside his 57-year-old mom, Lisa Eisenhart, The Times of London reported.

Munchel reportedly explained: “We wanted to show that we’re willing to rise up, band together and fight if necessary.

“Same as our forefathers, who established this country in 1776. It was a kind of flexing of muscles.”

He was seen holding zip ties in the Senate press gallery jumping chairs with his mom, according to the report.

Munchel’s mom slammed Democrats for having “everything – the media, organizations, the government.”

“We have to organize if we’re going to fight back and be heard,” his mom, a nurse, said.

“This country was founded on revolution. If they’re going to take every legitimate means from us, and we can’t even express ourselves on the internet, we won’t even be able to speak freely, what is America for?

“I’d rather die as a 57-year-old woman than live under oppression. I’d rather die and would rather fight,” she added.

According to The New Yorker, Brock – a dad of three – revealed he wore tactical gear to protect himself from potential attackers with “BLM and Antifa” and “found the zip-tie handcuffs on the ground”

Brock and Munchel’s charges come one day after the horned QAnon “shaman” and the protester pictured carrying Pelosi’s lectern were arrested late Saturday.

Heavily-tattooed QAnon nut Jacob Anthony Chansley, also known as Jake Angeli, was pictured wearing a fur headdress with horns as he occupied the Senate dais.

Cleveland Grover Meredith Jr was also arrested after he allegedly sent a message saying he was thinking of “putting a bullet in [Pelosi’s] noggin.”

Meanwhile, cops said the devices found outside the offices of the Republican National Committee and Democratic National Committee could have caused “great harm.”

Law enforcement agencies received reports of two suspected pipe bombs with wires outside the buildings around 1pm on Wednesday – as MAGA supporters were storming the Capitol.

Many took to the Capitol after Trump incited them to go there as lawmakers debated the electoral votes.

Trump supporters scaled the walls of the Capitol building, breached barricades, and advanced into the halls of the iconic building, smashing windows and brawling with cops.

The Capitol in Washington, DC, was placed under lockdown as a result, as rioters entered the second-floor lobby of the building right outside the Senate chamber.

With drawn guns and tear gas, police sought to clear the Capitol building of hundreds of protesters who stormed the building and sought to force Congress to undo Trump’s election loss as lawmakers convened to certify President-elect Joe Biden’s victory.

Security officers in dark suits drew their pistols and trained them on the shouting mob trying to smash their way through the door of the normally sedate House of Representatives chamber.

It later transpired that Trump fans also disgustingly smeared their own poo in the building, sources said.

Five people have so far died as a result of the violence, while others remain in a critical condition in hospital.
