Capitol riot lawyer 'unresponsive,' possibly hospitalized with COVID, prosecutors say


John Pierce, an attorney for 17 criminal defendants in the Jan. 6 Capitol riot cases, is missing and “unresponsive,” with prosecutors claiming he has been hospitalized due to COVID-19, according to court documents.

Monday’s filing in the case of defendant James Burton McGrew by prosecutors from the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Columbia suggests that the missing attorney is “ill with COVID-19, on a ventilator, and unresponsive.”

“Unfortunately, it seems that Mr. Pierce may be hospitalized and unable to communicate, and it is unclear when Mr. Pierce will recover,” the filing said. “The government is making the Court aware of Mr. Pierce’s reported illness so that it can take any steps it believes necessary to ensure the defendant’s rights are adequately protected while Mr. Pierce remains hospitalized.”
