    EXCLUSIVE: The family of January 6 defendant Timothy Hale-Cusanelli is "sad, but relieved" after he was jailed for four years, three less than what the government was seeking. Army reservist Cusanelli, 32, was sentenced Thursday to four years in prison, including time served. Although he didn't engage in any physical violence with police officers at the Capitol, he became a notable case due to alleged radical views and prior provocative statements. His closest family, Cynthia Hughes, has previously refused to speak to anyone from the media, but made an exception to speak to the Washington Examiner. "Sad, but relieved," she answered, when asked how she felt about the ruling. "Relieved that he didn't get seven years, like the government was dying for. Relieved that the judge was very reasonable, and stuck to the rule of law. Sad because Tim has basically been a prisoner his whole entire life."

    (CNN)Rep. Zoe Lofgren, a member of the House panel investigating the January 6, 2021, insurrection, on Sunday called out former President Donald Trump for featuring a speaker during his Saturday rally who highlighted the plight of a January 6 rioter and alleged Nazi sympathizer who was convicted on all five charges he faced in May. "When President Biden warned there are some elements in this extreme group that are semi-Fascist, maybe he didn't need to use 'semi," the California Democrat told CNN's Jim Acosta on "Newsroom," referring to the current President's recent remarks about "MAGA Republicans." Biden in late August rebuked Republicans who have stuck to the credo of his predecessor, labeling it "semi-fascism." The speaker at Trump's Pennsylvania rally was Cynthia Hughes, the leader of a support group for January 6 defendants like Timothy Hale-Cusanelli, whose case went viral after the Justice Department released photos of him sporting a distinctive "Hitler mustache." Trump's decision to feature a speaker highlighting such a case, when there are hundreds of other Capitol riot defendants to cite as examples, prompted a pointed response...
    It’s hardly a secret that few MAGA mites know their history. You can add that to the hulking mass of things they’re vigorously ignorant about. But one Jan. 6 insurrectionist—made infamous by his love of Hitler and all things Nazi—has really stretched credulity with his chosen legal defense. Timothy Hale-Cusanelli, who at one point famously embraced a Hitler mustache, a Hitler hairdo, and the Hitler anal cyst that somehow grew up to be our 45th president, has claimed he’s innocent of the charges the government brought against him—because he had no idea Congress met in the Capitol building. Though he fancies himself a history buff, he was ostensibly absent in class that day. And never bothered to watch the news. Or Saturday morning cartoons, for that matter. NBC News: Timothy Hale-Cusanelli, who was in the U.S. Army Reserves when he stormed the Capitol, was convicted Friday on all five counts he faced, including a felony charge of obstruction of an official proceeding. Hale-Cusanelli, who has been in jail since Feb. 2021, did not dispute that he entered the Capitol on Jan. 6, and his defense...
    WASHINGTON (AP) — A former U.S. Army reservist described by prosecutors as a Nazi sympathizer was convicted Friday of storming the U.S. Capitol to obstruct Congress from certifying President Joe Biden’s 2020 electoral victory. Timothy Hale-Cusanelli, who worked a security contractor at a Navy base when he joined the pro-Trump mob on Jan. 6, was also convicted of disorderly conduct and other misdemeanors.

The first four juries unanimously convicted the riot defendants of all charges. Roughly 300 others have pleaded guilty to crimes stemming from the riot, including seditious conspiracy and assault.

    (CNN)A January 6 rioter and alleged White supremacist was convicted Friday on all five charges he faced after hitching his case to the claim that he didn't know Congress met at the United States Capitol."I thought there were several buildings called 'Capitol building,'" Timothy Hale-Cusanelli, an alleged Nazi sympathizer and Army reservist, told the jury Thursday, adding that he was "from New Jersey" and was "idiotic" and ignorant. "I did not realize that Congress met in the Capitol."Several jurors rolled their eyes during this explanation and Hale-Cusanelli later said he was knowledgeable regarding the workings of the Electoral College process and American politics generally, which he took classes on in college. Trump reacted with approval to hang Mike Pence chants from rioters on January 6Judge Trevor McFadden said he found the claim "highly dubious" following the verdict, suggesting that he was opened to an enhancement against Hale-Cusanelli for obstructing justice.

    WASHINGTON (AP) — A U.S. Army reservist who worked on a Navy base stormed the U.S. Capitol because he wanted to kick off a civil war and create “a clean slate,” a federal prosecutor said Tuesday at the start of the New Jersey man’s trial. But a lawyer for Timothy Hale-Cusanelli told jurors that “groupthink” and a desperate desire “to be heard” drove him to follow a mob into the Capitol. Hale-Cusanelli shouldn’t have entered the building on Jan. 6, 2021, defense attorney Jonathan Crisp acknowledged during the trial’s opening statements. “But the question of why he was there is what is important,” Crisp added. Hale-Cusanelli is charged with obstructing the joint session of Congress convened to certify President Joe Biden’s electoral victory. He isn’t charged with engaging in any violence or property destruction that day. Assistant U.S. Attorney Kathryn Fifield played a video that captured Hale-Cusanelli yelling profanities at police officers guarding the Capitol and screaming, “The revolution will be televised!” “This was not a peaceful protest,” she said. In pretrial court filings, prosecutors presented evidence that coworkers described...
    (CNN)Timothy Hale-Cusanelli, an Army reservist and alleged White supremacist on trial for his actions during the January 6 Capitol riot, was "full of adrenalin and stupidity" when he told his roommate that he wanted a civil war, his defense attorney said during opening statements Tuesday. The trial of Hale-Cusanelli, who was employed as a guard with secret security clearance at a Naval base in New Jersey before the riot, is expected to run until the end of the week. He faces five charges including the felony of obstructing an official proceeding. During opening statements, prosecutors said Hale-Cusanelli entered the Capitol in the first 90 seconds of the initial breach and encouraged other rioters to follow suit. Prosecutor Kathryn Fifield told the jury that Hale-Cusanelli yelled for the crowd to "advance" several times during the riot and used tactical hand signals to communicate with other rioters. Hale-Cusanelli and the other rioters "were successful at stopping" the certification of electoral college votes that afternoon and he did so, according to Fifield, "with consciousness of wrongdoing." Hale-Cusanelli's attorney, Jonathan Crisp, said that his...
    U.S. District Judge Trevor McFadden barred prosecutors from entering in evidence that Timothy Hale-Cusanelli was an outright Nazi because he thinks jurors will be more likely to find him guilty. An outright Nazi insurrectionist standing trial over his involvement in the Capitol attack will benefit greatly from a Trump-appointed judge’s decision to bar prosecutors from entering evidence about his extremism. Prior to his involvement in the insurrection, Timothy Hale-Cusanelli was such a blatant Nazi that dozens of coworkers testified about his admiration for Hitler and calls for genocide against Jewish people. Hale-Cusanelli was known for sporting a Hitler-style mustache at times and was such a blatant white supremacist that his own lawyers proposed voir dire questions like, “Do you think someone who impersonates Adolf Hitler, satirical or otherwise, is a person who would want to overthrow the government?” Questions like that will be notably absent in the trial against Hale-Cusanelli, who faces charges of civil disorder, aiding and abetting, obstruction of an official proceeding, entering and remaining in a restricted building or grounds, impeding ingress and egress in a restricted...
    A contractor to the US Navy has been ousted from the US Army Reserves for his participation in the Capitol Riot on Jan. 6, according to federal officials. Timothy Hale-Cusanelli, 31, of Monmouth County -- know for his Hitler mustache -- was in federal custody in Washington, D.C. awaiting trial, according to court documents released by the US Department of Justice. Hale-Cusanelli was among the first Capitol rioters apprehended back in Jan, as media outlets reported at the time. He was a contracted security officer at Naval Weapons Station Earle in Colts Neck, and a member of an Army Reserve unit at Joint Base McGuire-Dix Lakehurst, at the time of his arrest on Jan. 17. He was banned from the navy base within days of the arrest, as media outlets reported at the time. Hale-Cusanelli was demoted to private from sergeant in May, only to be discharged in June, as his service record shows, as was obtained by the Washington Post and reported on Wednesday. He was never deployed and his last assignment was as a human...
    Timothy Hale-Cusanelli cosplaying Hitler A part-time Army Reserve sergeant who worked in human resources was demoted to the rank of private this past May. Shortly after, he was given an “other-than-honorable discharge the next month, terminating a 12-year military career.” The reason? According to Federal authorities, 31-year-old Timothy Hale-Cusanelli is a white supremacist, anti-semitic dirtbag who participated in the attempted coup d’etat in Washington, D.C., at the Capitol building on Jan. 6, 2021. Hale-Cusanelli reportedly traveled from his home in Colts Neck, New Jersey, to participate in the rally at the U.S. Capitol. According to the government’s statement of facts, Hale-Cusanelli works in New Jersey as a “contractor at Naval Weapons Station Earle where he maintains a ‘Secret’ security clearance and has access to a variety of munitions.” He was arrested 11 days after the insurrection in D.C., and arraigned at the end of March, when he pleaded not guilty to charges including trespassing and obstruction. The Washington Post reports that beyond simply trespassing into the Capitol building, Hale-Cusanelli was using hand and arm signals “to advance rioters forward” and “harassing police officers.” And then...
    An Army reservist became the first military service member charged in the Jan. 6 Capitol riot to be kicked out of the military. Timothy Hale-Cusanelli, 31, was an army sergeant working part time as a Human Resources soldier until May when he was demoted to private, the lowest rank, and given an other-than-honorable discharge, the Washington Post reported on Wednesday. US MILITARY ONLY 'MARGINALLY ABLE' TO MEET NEEDS, THINK TANK ARGUES Hale-Cusanelli, whom the Department of Justice called an “avowed white supremacist and Nazi sympathizer,” served for 12 years before being discharged. He was charged weeks after the riot with five federal counts, including knowingly entering or remaining in any restricted building or grounds without lawful authority; disrupting the orderly conduct of government business; violent entry and disorderly conduct in a Capitol building; parading, demonstrating, or picketing in a Capitol building; and obstructing a law enforcement officer during a civil disorder. His lawyer, Jonathan Crisp, told the Washington Post Hale-Cusanelli was “a knee-jerk reaction to the charges” and that the discharge was “improper.” Before his arrest, Hale-Cusanelli frequently peddled...
    Plea discussions have begun for some of the more than 400 defendants facing charges in connection with the January 6 Capitol attack, but in some cases, the sheer magnitude of the investigation is complicating efforts to move forward with cases and secure plea deals. In a Wednesday hearing for Timothy Hale-Cusanelli, an Army Reservist and alleged Nazi sympathizer accused of obstructing law enforcement, his attorney argued that as they awaited a tentative plea offer from the government, they had yet to receive access to enough evidence from the case in order to make a decision about whether to plead guilty. "We're really operating in the blind here," Hale-Cusanelli's attorney said. "I don't want to seem like I'm complaining, but I'm complaining." During the discovery process, a part of the criminal case where prosecutors review and share relevant evidence with defendants, prosecutors have had to wade through an unwieldy volume of evidence from the Capitol riot — including more than 15,000 hours of body camera and surveillance video, hundreds of thousands of FBI tips and over 80,000 reports and 93,000...
    (CNN)The Justice Department said Friday that a Nazi sympathizer who stormed the US Capitol on January 6 poses a threat to Jewish residents in his native New Jersey and therefore shouldn't be released from jail.The alleged Capitol rioter, Timothy Hale-Cusanelli, was a well-known Nazi sympathizer at the Navy base where he worked in New Jersey. A federal judge ordered him detained last month while he awaits trial, but he has filed new motions with the court seeking his release.Opposing those requests, federal prosecutors told the judge that Hale-Cusanelli poses a danger to the ultra-Orthodox Jewish community in Lakewood, which is near the Navy base where he worked before his arrest."Defendant poses a more localized threat to the community, particularly the Hassidic community in Lakewood, New Jersey," federal prosecutors wrote in a court filing. "Defendant has demonstrated specific animosity towards the Jewish population and expressed a desire to commit violence against Jewish people."

    The former acting U.S. attorney in the nation’s capital likely violated Justice Department rules when he gave an interview to CBS’ “60 Minutes” about the investigation into the Jan. 6 Capitol attack, and has been referred to an internal office for review, a prosecutor said Tuesday. The chief of the criminal division for the U.S. attorney’s office in the District of Columbia made the comments after a federal judge scolded the Justice Department over the TV interview along with another recent news report and warned that further press statements could lead to a gag order or sanctions. “These types of statements in the media have the potential to affect the jury pool and the rights of these defendants,” U.S. District Judge Amit Mehta said during a hearing held via videoconference in the case against 10 members and associates of the far-right extremist group Oath Keepers, who are charged with conspiracy in the attack. “Let this hearing serve as notice on the Department of Justice that I will not tolerate continued publicity in the media that I believe affects...
    (CNN)An Army reservist who was a well-known Nazi sympathizer among his colleagues was ordered Tuesday to remain in jail while awaiting trial on charges tied to the Capitol insurrection. A federal judge said the defendant, Timothy Hale-Cusanelli, posed a threat to the public and that there was a potential for an "escalation of violence" from his long-held neo-Nazi beliefs. "I am very concerned about the statements after January 6 suggesting that the defendant is looking forward to a civil war," Federal Judge Trevor McFadden said at a court hearing.Hale-Cusanelli's case went viral this month when the Justice Department released photos of him sporting a distinctive "Hitler mustache" at the Navy base where he worked as a contractor.He has been in jail since his arrest in January.

    (CNN) — Un reservista del ejército acusado de asaltar el Capitolio de EE.UU. es un conocido supremacista blanco y simpatizante nazi en la base naval donde trabajaba como contratista, e incluso fue reprendido por lucir un distintivo «bigote de Hitler», dijeron los fiscales en un nuevo reporte. Los fiscales federales revelaron el viernes que la Marina realizó su propia investigación interna sobre Timothy Hale-Cusanelli y descubrió numerosos incidentes en los que promovió puntos de vista racistas y sexistas. El Servicio de Investigación Criminal Naval entrevistó a 44 de sus colegas y 34 de ellos dijeron que tenía «puntos de vista extremistas o radicales sobre el pueblo judío, las minorías y las mujeres». Hale-Cusanelli, de 30 años, fue acusado de siete cargos criminales, que incluyen obstrucción a los procedimientos del Congreso, desorden civil y alteración del orden público en el Capitolio. Aún no se ha declarado culpable. Su abogado defensor se negó a comentar el domingo sobre los nuevos detalles de la investigación de la Marina, pero señaló en documentos judiciales que Hale-Cusanelli sostiene que no es un supremacista blanco.

    The federal government wants an Army reservist and security contractor at New Jersey’s Naval Weapons Station Earle kept behind bars for his role in the Capitol riot because of his history as a Nazi sympathizer, including parading around wearing a “Hitler” mustache, and his support for civil war, according to court papers. Timothy Hale-Cusanelli had a “secret” security clearance for his work at the Colts Neck Navy base, but he made his political leanings known to co-workers. Court papers say Hale-Cusanelli frequently made anti-Semitic and anti-minority jokes and comments to colleagues.
