Speaking to local television station KSDK on Thursday, Chansley’s lawyer Al Watkins said that his client had expected to be pardoned by Trump but that he has now realized he’d been “duped.”
“He regrets very, very much having not just been duped by the president, but by being in a position where he allowed that duping to put him in a position to make decisions he should not have made,” Watkins said, according to Law & Crime.
Watkins also seemed to blame Trump for what he said were “months of lies” and “misrepresentations” that were “designed to inflame, enrage, and motivate” the mob on January 6, according to Law & Crime.
“What’s really curious is the reality that our president, as a matter of public record, invited these individuals, as President, to walk down to the Capitol with him,” Watkins said.

(yes, yes, I know what else he’s stoked and it’s more like 48 months…)
But, this asshole “lawyer” can’t distinguish what he did from that? I hope he at least operates at a different understanding of what he went to law school to accomplish. It sure wasn’t what he demonstrated.
Hell, no... I'm not giving up...

No, because that is part of the why that they are idiots. They can’t think. They seldom think ahead to possible consequences of their own decisions and actions.
We are an arrogant species, believing our fantasy based "facts" are better than the other person's fake facts.
If you are wrong, it will be because you are not cynical enough.
Both major political parties are special interest groups enabling each other for power and money, at the expense of the people they no longer properly serve…
Always wear a proper mask when out and about. The life you save could be both yours and mine.
