The truth of how violent and destructive some of those in the U.S. Capitol were during the Jan. 6 events is coming out now.

It’s because of court cases that are finally reaching their resolution.

In this case, a grandmother from Indiana, Anna Morgan Lloyd, is being given three years probation and a $500 fine for merely standing inside the building for about 10 minutes.

Federal prosecutors have confessed that she did not commit any violence or destroy any property. She hadn’t “coordinated” her actions in advance.

According to the Gateway Pundit she’s pleading guilty to one misdemeanor count of “demonstrating.”

MSN documented that the woman explained to the court she has learned from her presence in the Capitol, and from movies like “Schindler’s List.”

The 49-year-old went to the building in Washington with a friend, Dona Sue Bissey, whose case still is pending.

In a letter to the court, she apologized for entering and said she feels “ashamed” about how the march that day turned violent.

Her comments included: “I’ve learned that even though we live in a wonderful country, things still need to improve. People of all colors should feel as safe as I do to walk down the street.”

And she suggested, in a letter to the court, if she had removed herself from the crowd, those who committed violence, “may have lost the nerve to do what they did.”

“To be clear, what the defendant initially described as ‘the most exciting day of (her) life’ was, in fact, a tragic day for our nation — a day of riotous violence, collective destruction, and criminal conduct by a frenzied and lawless mob,” acting U.S. Attorney Channing Phillips claimed in court records.

She had no prior criminal history.

The issue of cases against hundreds of people who were at the building that day, including many who walked into the building through open doors as police officers stood nearby, has proven controversial for the Biden Department of Justice.

Some defendants have been held in cells without bail since January, an extraordinary move given the fact that the only victim of violence that day was a woman who was shot and killed by a police officer.

One officer died of natural causes, and did several other protesters. Two other police officers killed themselves shortly after.

There also remain many questions about those events, given video appears to show all-black-clad operatives, much like those who have pushed the Black Lives Matter agenda, actually breaking into the building first.

Further, one report has contended that FBI operatives may have been involved in the planning stages for the vandalism that did occur, since the government has listed several dozen “unindicted co-conspirators” in the federal case files they have submitted.

Those unidentified individuals, the files reveal, allegedly committed the same crimes as others who have been charged, but they are being exempted from any charges whatsoever, suggesting they were government informants at least.

Earlier, a 38-year-old man from Tampa, Florida, Paul Allard Hodgkins, pleaded guilty to obstructing Congress’ certification of the 2020 election results, which although final still are being investigated for fraud in several states.

The government dropped several other charges.

And another plea deal was reached with Jon Schaffer, of Columbus, Indiana, who pleaded guilty to obstructing and entering a restricted area with a weapon – even though federal officials have said no firearms were taken from any of the protesters that day.

More than 450 people have been charged in relation to the events at the Capitol.

The Gateway Pundit said, of Morgan-Lloyd’s case, “They won’t stop until every Trump-supporting American pays with their constitutional rights.”

The statement continued, “As far as we know, this seems to be the only ‘insurrection’ in history that involved sweet, harmless grandmothers.”
