“The shocking images of Mr. Barnett with his boots up on a desk in the speaker of the House’s office on Wednesday was repulsive,” said Acting Attorney General Jeffrey Rose. “Those who are proven to have committed criminal acts during the storming of the Capitol will face justice.”
Per several internet postings, Barnett reportedly believed that face masks were a dress rehearsal for apparently “what’s to come.”
