U.S. Capitol Rioter Seeks Asylum in Belarus

Evan Neumann, 48, is wanted in the United States on charges of violent entry and disorderly conduct on Capitol grounds, as well as for assaulting, resisting and obstructing law enforcement during civil disorder. Neumann denies the charges as “unfounded.”

Neumann sold his California home in spring and was thought to have moved to Ukraine to evade arrest, ABC News reported this summer.

“Judging by his story, [Neumann] is the same type of simple American whose shops were burned by Black Lives Matter activists,” a Belarus 1 TV channel presenter said, echoing a common talking point on Russian state television.

Note: Belarus is the only former Soviet republic that is an old style Communist dictatorship.

3. Why Bother?

I hear the DOJ is giving community service, and a free gift basket as a lovely parting gift, with each "recommended" sentence.

5. Republican traitors running from the law

They never take responsibility for their actions. Republicans are such lousy moral "role models" for youth.
