We have told you about Iowan Doug Jensen, one of the Jan. 6 accused. There is an interesting detail the mainstream media hasn’t told anyone about (you can find it here – hint: it’s about his voter registration). This doesn’t mean Jensen doesn’t support President Donald J. Trump as many Democrats did support him, but it should at least be of note.
Nonetheless, Jensen was granted release from jail in July. Now, however, prosecutors have filed a motion to put Jensen back into jail because he violated an order not to access the internet or have access to his family’s internet-connected devices.
According to the government’s motion, Jensen was found alone, in his garage, using a WiFi-connected iPhone to stream news from Rumble. He eventually admitted to his Pretrial Services Officer that he spent two days watching Mike Lindell’s Cyber Symposium.
When initially confronted about what the government calls an “obvious violation of his release,” Jensen provided “one excuse after another.”
“First, he claimed that the phone belonged to his daughter. Jensen’s daughter, however, later told Pretrial Services that she had gotten a new phone almost three weeks ago. Then, Jensen claimed that his wife — the same individual who swore, under oath, to notify the Court immediately if Jensen violates a condition of release — facilitated his violation by leaving the news on for him when she left for work in the morning. Finally, Jensen claimed not to know the password to the iPhone, only to later enter the password for his Pretrial Services Officer.”
Conditions of his release prohibit Jensen from learning the password to any family members’ internet-capable device.
While Jensen said he had come “full circle” and felt “deceived” by QAnon’s “conspiracy theories,” the government’s motion said his swift violation confirms what they suspected all along — “Jensen’s alleged disavowal of QAnon was just an act; and that, at the end of the day, Jensen will not abandon the misguided theories and beliefs that led im to menacingly chase U.S. Capitol Police Officer Eugene Goodman up the Senate staircase on Jan. 6, 2021.”
The government states that allowing Jensen to remain on pretrial release would be to “repose trust in an undeserving individual who has already proven himself unwilling to modify, much less rethink, his behavior after Jan. 6.”
“Jensen remains a danger to the community and cannot be trusted by this Court to abide by any conditions of release,” the filing states.
While some Iowa media outlets continues to refer to Jensen as an “Iowa insurrectionist,” it seems prudent to point out he hasn’t been charged with insurrection — which is an actual crime. In fact, at this point, The Iowa Standard doesn’t know of a single person involved in the Jan. 6 protest who has been charged with insurrection.
Jensen was charged with five felonies and two misdemeanors:
*Obstruction of an Official Proceeding;
*Obstruction of a Law Enforcement Officer During a Civil Disorder;
*Assaulting, Resisting, or Impeding Certain Officers;
*Unlawfully entering and remaining in a restricted building while carrying a deadly and dangerous weapon;
*Disorderly and disruptive conduct in a restricted building while carrying a deadly and dangerous weapon;
*Disorderly conduct in a Capitol building;
*Parading, demonstrating and picketing in a Capitol building
