The Capitol rioter who went viral on the internet for an infamous picture of him dangling from the Senate balcony pleaded guilty on Wednesday to a federal charge for his role in the riot.
Idaho resident Josiah Colt, 34, had posted a video calling House Speaker Nancy Pelosi a “treasonous bitch” and bragged about breaching the Capitol – but later begged for forgiveness.
Colt pleaded guilty to obstructing an official proceeding as part of a deal that saw three other felony charges dropped, The Associated Press reported.
The deal had Colt agree to cooperate with prosecutors in other cases — and admit that he and two other men brought a pistol, gas masks a stun gun and other equipment to Washington, D.C., the AP said.
As part of his plea, Colt confirmed he yelled “breach the building” to the crowd and that he was pictured in a social media post lying in a bed with his eyes closed
