A Capitol Police officer may have just been caught in a massive lie about January 6th – further proving it was nothing more than a fabricated hoax intended to demonize supporters of President Trump and have an excuse to weaponize the Justice Department against them.
Retired U.S. Capitol Police Sergeant Aquilino Gonell is acting as a key witness against Kyle Fitzsimmons, a J6 defendant who stands accused of a number of crimes including “assaulting a federal officer” and “civil disorder.”
But according to Cara Castronuova, Co-founder of Citizens Against Political Persecution, Gonell was caught committing perjury on numerous occasions during the trial as he testified against Fitzsimmons.
Gonell had initially claimed that Fitzsimmons pulled on his shield on January 6th and injured him, forcing him to retire, spawning the “assaulting a federal officer” charge.
However, when surveillance footage was played showing the supposed attack, it was confirmed that Fitzsimmons NEVER touched Gonell, sending the retired officer into a panic and forcing him to resort to his rehearsed media talking points about how he was a “hero” and nobody should question what he says.
Later in the trial Fitzsimmons’ defense attorney also proved that Gonell was likely lying about another claim in which he suggested he ‘saved’ a fellow officer on January 6th.
