Continued allegations of horrid conditions in the DC jail holding the political prisoners of January 6th came out this week, and news of Sidney Powell joining the movement to assist them was announced.
Allegations have surfaced of the inmates all being held in solitary confinement, beatings by guards and unsanitary conditions were made just this week.
Attorney Joseph McBride appeared with Greg Kelly on Newsmax on Thursday to discuss the treatment of the political prisoners:
Joseph McBride: What I can say about the Jan. 6 protesters who remain incarcerated or detained at this point, is that their constitutional rights and human rights are being violated by the Department of Justice and the Federal Government at this very moment. The law is clear that no type of punishment is appropriate for a detainee. Despite that numerous detainees are being held in solitary confinement for long periods of time. They’re being denied medical care. They’re taking beatings. They’re being denied sleep. They’re being psychologically, emotionally, and physically tortured on a regular basis.
Greg Kelly: Was your client Richard Barnett beaten up by staff?
Joseph McBride: He absolutely was. He was beaten. He was dragged. He was hog-tied. One time his pants dropped below his ankles exposing his private parts while he was taking a beating in front of a female officer. And he had to beg and plead to pull his pants up.
A reporter from American Greatness, Julie Kelly, appeared on Steve Bannon’s War Room on Friday to discuss the conditions of the political prisoners. They discussed how dozens of January 6 inmates are still being held with no bail and no trial, for misdemeanor charges:
