The TV show 60 Minutes is featuring the profile of a very sick man whose become famous for being involved in the Jan.6 coup attempt.
One of the most iconic figures during the Capitol Hill assault was a wacko wearing horns and carrying a spear. His name is Jacob Chansley.
It was an interview that should never have happened.
The lawyer for the horned shaman is in hot water with a federal judge after facilitating an interview with 60 Minutes that violated federal rules.
U.S. District Court judge Royce Lamberth dressed down Al Watkins for using his privileges as a lawyer to arrange the interview for the online edition of 60 Minutes.
The main topic was Chansley's request to be released prior to his trial. The odds don't look too good for that happening now.
I wonder if the 60 Minutes producer was aware that Chansley's lawyer was violating federal rules?
I suspect the producer of the popular Sunday show knew it was a hinckey setup, but that it would bring dynamite ratings. Of course, that's all that mattered.
The show must go on.
