#WalkAway Founder Brandon Straka Tells His Story of January 6th and the Aftermath in Interview With Mark Levin
“Levin pulled no punches and encouraged Straka to tell his story by asking direct and hard-hitting questions”
Brandon Straka, the founder of the #WalkAway movement, which encourages people to walk away from the left, did an interview with Mark Levin this week, which was very revealing.
Straka tells his full story of January 6th and what he has been through since then.
Straka accepts responsibility for being there but makes it clear that he never entered the Capitol Building. He shares video he shot showing the crowd on the east side of the building while pointing out that the actions seized upon by the media were occurring on the west side of the building.
It was only later, when the media started covering the story, that he learned what was happening on the other side.
Two weeks later, an FBI SWAT team showed up at his home and arrested him.
The Blaze has more details:
In Mark Levin’s exclusive, “Brandon Straka’s January 6 Story Reveal,’ Brandon had the floor not only to provide Americans with the details and video evidence of what happened but to reveal what followed his arrest. Mark Levin pulled no punches and encouraged Straka to tell his story by asking direct and hard-hitting questions. Brandon delivered on every question, bringing to light what Mark describes as the “injustice in our courts.” Brandon explained:
- the courts continued his case five times, dragging it out for over a year;
- the court-ordered strict pretrial supervision for over a year;
- his court-ordered ankle monitor that he now has to wear as part of a three-month in-home confinement sentence;
- he received a three-year probation sentence and 60 hours of community service;
- the judge imposed the maximum fine of $5,000 and $500 restitution to the Capitol, despite the judge’s acknowledgment that he did not engage in destructive behavior or vandalism at the Capitol.
He went on to say that the prosecution’s initial recommendation was severe surveillance measures as a condition of the three-year probation, which would have allowed for surveilling of his phone, computer, bank accounts, social media accounts, and email accounts for the entire probationary period. This was ultimately not included in the final sentencing, but it begs the question of why it was brought to the table at all.
The interview is a little over an hour long, and I recommend watching the whole thing:
Straka is one of many people in this situation. I have a feeling we will look back on the treatment of these folks as a very dark chapter in our history.
