Actor Charged in Jan. 6 Capitol Raid (Video)

Actor Jay Johnston has been charged in connection with the Jan. 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol.

Johnston, whose credits include “Anchorman,” “Arrested Development,” “Bob’s Burgers” and “The Sarah Silverman Program,” is accused of unlawfully entering the U.S. Capitol complex and disorderly or disruptive conduct in a restricted area during the 2021 insurrection, according to court documents.

He turned himself in to the FBI in Los Angeles on Wednesday. Efforts to reach an attorney for him were unsuccessful.

Johnston was part of the mob on the West Plaza of the Capitol where he and others forced police into a tunnel that led into the building, according to the Justice Department. Inside the tunnel, Johnston allegedly used a stolen police riot shield to push back against police multiple times.

Rioters yelled “Heave! Ho!” as they pushed against the officers, according to an FBI affidavit, which described Johnston as a participant in a “group assault” against officers.

As part of its Jan. 6 investigation, the FBI shared a photo of Johnston at the Capitol and, in March 2021, his lawyer called authorities to identify him.

Three people who know Johnston corroborated his identity, an FBI agent said in the affidavit, and one of those three shared a text they said Johnston wrote about being at the Capitol.

“The news has presented it as an attack. It actually wasn’t,” Johnston allegedly wrote, according to the affidavit. “Thought it kind of turned into that. It was a mess. Got maced and tear gassed and found it quite untastic.”

Johnston’s arrest is one of more than 1,000 Jan. 6 cases brought by Justice Department prosecutors to date.

  1. He should have worn a shirt that switched to “democrat” then they would have left him alone!
    Neve saw such a criminal court. The judge should wear a democrat shirt too as should every member of the jury.
    “Equal justice under the law”.? Right.

    1. Nancy shut your racist ignorant cunt UP. Every fucking thing is politics for you people. This is a disgusting act of treason against the country and an attack on democracy. If it was the other way around with democratic people storming the capital you guys would have been rallying for justice. You fucking people are the worst kind of maggots on earth. You will support anything or anyone that’s racist no matter how bad they are. You should be ashamed to have someone like DUMP to have ever been the president of this country making us the laughing stock of the world. He have no respect for you women (grab your asses by the pussy), he have no regards for poor people (white or black) and he the biggest narcissist this world has ever seen since right up there with Putin who he idolizes. Grow some values and respect for yourself and the females in your family for Christ’s sake. Fucking racism will continue to rot you people from the inside out. I have no sympathy for any or your people who go to jail or get killed because of a racist act. Your ancestors are the ones to be blame for that by creating a mental sickness in you people against humanity. Hurry up and disappear.

      1. Ah Russian A.I. bot Boris UnOpen Mind, the Democrats attacked and burned cities and federal buildings for a year with impunity, even took over city centers and labeled them ‘autonomous zones’ with Communist armed guards! So go shoplift a store, rob a business, murder a clerk or neighbor, weaponize a Govt. agency or whatever you thieving murderous Democrat junkies have planned for the rest of the day…

      2. Buzz Waldron go eat a dick and take your bogus non-facts shit with you. Think because you spew garbage in the universe it will stick? It’s proven you racists plant yourselves in black protest and incite chaos by destroying buildings and looting. Nice try bitch.

    2. The “People’s House” is not a “restricted area”… except to ‘Let Them Eat Cake’ Queen Pelosi…
      And evil Capital Cops did the only murdering…

  2. Notice where all the nasty, filthy, hate comments came from. You would have to be no only bias, but blind and stupid to not see the proof in front of you!
