‘QAnon Shaman’ flips and cooperates with FBI — hands over info on accomplice

Jacob Angeli, the Arizona man who stormed the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6 wearing face paint and a fur hat with bull horns, is reportedly now cooperating with the FBI, and has even handed over information regarding someone who helped him travel to D.C. on that day, USA Today reports.

Angeli’s attorney says his client has given authorities video footage and details about how he traveled to D.C., along with “protracted debriefings.” He also reportedly gave the FBI the name of a person who financed his trip.

Albert Watkins, Angeli’s attorney, says his client’s cooperation was not part of any plea deal and demonstrates his “wholesale commitment” to do “what is right for the country.”
