Louisiana Trump Rioter Who Claims He Helped Injured People On Jan 6 Faces Charges

The FBI says a man who denied being in the Capitol building on Jan. 6

Charles Tyler Himber has been charged with felony offense of civil disorder and multiple misdemeanor offenses, including knowingly entering or remaining in any restricted building or grounds without lawful authority, disorderly or disruptive conduct in a restricted building or grounds, disorderly or disruptive conduct in a Capitol building, parading, demonstrating, or picketing in a Capitol building, according to a U.S. Attorney’s Office news release.

Himber took a group selfie in the rotunda of the Capitol and bragged on social media of his actions in the Capitol.

He joined thousands of Donald Trump supporters in January 2021 to protest certifying of President Joe Biden’s victory in what some of Trump’s base still believe was electoral fraud.

Himber allegedly wrote of his exploits on social media.

“Storm in Capitol Hill is a go … drain the swamp manually … Evacuating Capitol Hill pushing back,” FBI authorities said one of Himber’s posts read.

His alleged Facebook posts saying, “We’re in” and “Making history” on Jan. 6, 2021, brought him to the attention of the FBI, court documents said.

Himber admitted to travelling to Washington DC to attend the rally but denied being there, stressing his posts were in support of those who got in.

“He added that he did not enter the restricted area in or around the Capitol,” court documents said. “This, as shown above, was false.”

“When shown a picture of himself in the building, however, Himber recanted, and said that he entered the building, but had been pushed into the crowd, and was only there for a second before being immediately escorted out of the building,” court documents said.

He also allegedly claimed to help law enforcement officers and civilians who had been injured, including a woman who had been stabbed — statements authorities said they couldn’t prove.
