WASHINGTON, D.C. – A former St. Ansgar man and his son, arrested and charged for storming the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021 after tipsters turned them in for bragging about the attack in social media posts, and after entering guilty pleas to felonies, have been sent to prison for their crimes.
Various tipsters to the FBI alleged that Daniel Johnson and his father Daryl Johnson were inside the U.S. Capitol Building on January 6, 2021, were among the treasonous, deadly rioters attempting to overthrow Democracy.
Daryl Johnson, of St. Ansgar and his son Daniel, of Austin, Minnesota, entered guilty pleas back in January to felony charges of civil disorder. Daryl Johnson was sentenced to 30 days in jail and must pay a $4,000 fine. His son Daniel Johnson was sentenced to four months in jail and must pay $2,000 in restitution for damages he caused.
The January 6 Commission is rooting out the rioters and those who whipped them into a frenzy, possibly including elected leaders at the very top of the food chain. Republican Rep. Liz Cheney recently said, “The investigation is firing on all cylinders. Do not be misled: President Trump is trying to hide what happened on January 6th and to delay and obstruct. We will not let that happen. The truth will come out.” The Committee is now holding public hearing, laying bare for all to see the the onslaught on Democracy wreaked by Donald Trump and his cronies.
