A man known as the "Q Shaman" who stormed the Capitol says he feels "duped" after Trump didn't pardon him.

Jacob A. Chansley was arrested and charged earlier this month in connection with the Capitol riots.

His lawyer blamed Trump for "motivating" the mob to march on the Capitol building.

A far-right Arizona conspiracy theorist known as "QAnon Shaman," who stormed the Capitol in a fur headdress with horns, says he feels "duped" by Trump after the former president didn't pardon him, his lawyer has said.

Jake Angeli, whose real name is Jacob A. Chansley, was arrested and charged earlier this month in connection with the Capitol riots, which resulted in the deaths of five people, including a police officer.

Speaking to local television station KSDK on Thursday, Chansley's lawyer Al Watkins said that his client had expected to be pardoned by Trump but that he has now realized he'd been "duped."

"He regrets very, very much having not just been duped by the president, but by being in a position where he allowed that duping to put him in a position to make decisions he should not have made," Watkins said, according to Law & Crime.

"As to my client, the guy with the horns and the fur, the meditation, and organic food...I'm telling you that we cannot simply wave a magic wand and label all these people on January 6 the same," he added.

Watkins' comment about organic food is a reference to a statement made by Chansley's mother at his first federal court hearing, where she said that her son had refused to eat while in custody because he "gets very sick if he doesn't eat organic food."

It is not known whether Chansley has stopped his hunger strike or not.

Watkins also seemed to blame Trump for what he said were "months of lies" and "misrepresentations" that were "designed to inflame, enrage, and motivate" the mob on January 6, according to Law & Crime.

Trump told his supporters before the deadly events unfolded that "we're going to walk down, and I'll be there with you," with reference made to the Capitol building immediately following those remarks.

"What's really curious is the reality that our president, as a matter of public record, invited these individuals, as President, to walk down to the Capitol with him," Watkins said.

When I was reading this article, I could not help thinking about what 45 said about his supporters, " Donald Trump: ‘I love the poorly educated.’

This is who 45 was talking about and he knew these people were out there to be USED for his bidding.

Steve, do you know why 'Q Shaman' himself feels that 45 should pardon him for his attack and siege of The U.S. Capital?

As far as me, I thought the Q business was a big joke. Lots of people thought that. That's why 1/6 happened. nThe Anons are more your ilk Ron, having deeply held religious beliefs like "God became a man", without evidence.
