He’s Going To Prison For Walking Around With A Flag

(FreedomBeacon.com)- At his sentencing, a very distraught man remarked, “I never should’ve entered.”

Kevin Seefried, who on January 6, 2021, carried a Confederate flag across the Capitol buildings, was given a three-year jail term on Thursday.

Eugene Goodman, a U.S. Capitol Police officer, testified at Kevin Seefried’s trial that the defendant repeatedly stabbed him with the end of his flagpole, an event that was allegedly recorded on film.

According to court filings, Goodman testified that Seefried shouted, “F*** you, I’m not leaving.” “Where are the members at?” “Where are they counting the votes at?” “Things of the nature,” Goodman said.

The Washington, D.C., federal trial court’s U.S. District Judge Trevor McFadden, appointed by former President Donald Trump, referred to Seefried’s actions as “humiliating.”

Federal prosecutors, according to reports, wanted to sentence Seefried to 70 months in prison. His attorneys requested a maximum of one year, one day.

Seefried was found guilty of four misdemeanors related to his involvement in the Capitol demonstration on January 6 and one felony offense of impeding an official action last summer.

“On that stressful day,” Judge McFadden said, “Seefried ought to have known better than to enter the Capitol.”

Additionally, McFadden reportedly told Seefried that displaying a Confederate flag at one of our country’s most sacred spaces was terrible.

Seefried was sentenced to three years in jail, one year of supervised release, and $2,000 in reparation requirements.

For his activities on January 6, 2021, his son, Hunter Seefried, received a two-year prison term in October of last year.

House Republicans plan to release up to 10,000 hours of additional video from the event on January 6. Only the mostly Democratic Jan. 6 House panel, until the GOP won the House, had any say in whether video from that day got released into the public domain.
