Donald Trump Should Be 'Clearing This F**king Mess Up,' QAnon Shaman's Attorney Says

Albert Watkins, attorney for so-called "QAnon Shaman" Jacob Chansley, has demanded President Donald Trump take responsibility for the Capitol riots and "clean up this mess."

Chansley was sentenced to 41 months in prison on Wednesday.

Chansley became the face of the January 6 storming of the Capitol due to photos of him in a fur headdress with horns while topless and holding the American flag.

Watkins was asked: "After spending this much time talking to Jacob Chansley and learning about him, what do you think is appropriate accountability for former President Donald Trump?"

He insisted that his opinion was not important but believed he could get more done in a sitdown with Trump.

He said: "If you're asking my opinion, my opinion is meaningless. I will say that I would probably be far more effective over a beer with former President Trump, even if he didn't have a beer because I understand he doesn't drink beer, but I'd have a beer.

"I'd tell him, 'You know what? You've got a few f**king things to do. Including clearing this f**king mess up and taking care of a lot of the jackasses that you f**ked up because of January 6.'

"In the meantime, I might talk to him about some other things that I'd agree with him on. But my opinion doesn't mean s**t."

In May, Watkins spoke to Talking Points Memo and discussed those facing trial for their actions.

He said: "A lot of these defendants, and I'm going to use this colloquial term, perhaps disrespectfully, but they're all f**king short-bus people.

"These are people with brain damage, they're fucking retarded, they're on the goddamn spectrum.

"But they're our brothers, our sisters, our neighbors, our co-workers, they're part of our country.

"These aren't bad people, they don't have prior criminal history.

"They were subjected to four-plus years of goddamn propaganda the likes of which the world has not seen since f**king Hitler."

During the Wednesday hearing, Chansley said he may be guilty but emphasized he was not dangerous.

He said: "I may be guilty of this crime, but I am in no way, shape, or form a dangerous criminal. I am not a violent man. I am not an insurrectionist. I am certainly not a domestic terrorist. I am a good man who broke the law."

Due to COVID protocols, Chansley has served nearly 320 days in solitary confinement since his arrest.

He also condemned those with who he was incarcerated and said he believed he was "nothing like these criminals."

Newsweek has reached out to Donald Trump's representatives for comment.
