January 6

Capitol rioter’s T-shirt read ‘I was there on Jan 6’ when the FBI arrested him

When Garret Miller was arrested by law enforcement on charges that he stormed the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, he was wearing a T-shirt that had a picture of Donald Trump along with the words, “Take America Back” and “I Was There, Washington D.C., January 6, 2021,” the Associated Press reports.

Miller’s penchant for incriminating himself didn’t begin on the day of his arrest. According to prosecutors, when Miller posted a selfie to Facebook showing himself inside the Capitol building, a commenter wrote, “bro you got in?! Nice!” Miller replied, “just wanted to incriminate myself a little lol.”

After breaching the building, Miller took to Twitter and called for Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez to be assassinated.

“By bringing tactical gear, ropes, and potentially, by his own admission, a gun to the Capitol on January 6, 2021, Miller showed that he was not just caught up in the frenzy of the crowd but instead came to D.C. with the intention of disrupting the democratic process of counting and certifying Electoral College votes,” prosecutors wrote.

On Feb. 12, a D.C. grand jury indicted Miller on 12 counts, including civil disorder, obstruction of an official proceeding, and assaulting, resisting or impeding officers.
