Judge Frees J6 Prisoner Once He Denounced Trump and Promised Not To Watch TV News

“I object, Your Honor! This trial is a travesty of a mockery of a sham of a mockery of two mockeries of a sham!”

Fielding Mellish, in Woody Allen’s 1971 film Bananas, could easily have been talking about the treatment of Jan. 6 defendants in D.C. district court judge Amy Berman Jackson’s courtroom.

Last week, Jackson entertained a motion by 35 year-old Buffalo, New York native Michael Sibick for bail release.

Unlike most other Jan. 6 detainees – who are accused of glammed-up trespass and disorderly conduct offenses – Sibick faces heavy-duty charges.

Sibick was arrested on March 12 for assaulting and robbing a Metropolitan Police Department officer of his police badge and radio during the Jan. 6 melee. He stands indicted on 10 counts, including obstruction of an official proceeding, robbery, and engaging in physical violence on the Capitol grounds.

He was denied bail soon after his arrest, a decision that was affirmed by the D.C. Court of Appeals.
