During an interview with Newsmax’s Greg Kelly on Thursday, attorney Joseph McBride discussed the abuse and torture being heaped upon January 6 defendants by guards at the facility where they are being held — abuse and torture the Department of Justice apparently condones.
“What I can say about the Jan. 6 protesters who remain incarcerated or detained at this point, is that their constitutional rights and human rights are being violated by the Department of Justice and the Federal Government at this very moment,” McBride said.
“The law is clear that no type of punishment is appropriate for a detainee. Despite that numerous detainees are being held in solitary confinement for long periods of time. They’re being denied medical care. They’re taking beatings. They’re being denied sleep. They’re being psychologically, emotionally, and physically tortured on a regular basis,” he added.
Kelly followed up, asking McBride who is doing the actual beating. McBride answered by saying the abuse is being doled out by the guards.
“I am alleging that the guards are beating them up. The staff are beating prisoners on a regular basis and have been doing so for a long time. This is no exaggeration,” he said.
“Was your client Richard Barnett beaten up by staff?” Kelly asked.
“He absolutely was. He was beaten. He was dragged. He was hog-tied. One time his pants dropped below his ankles exposing his private parts while he was taking a beating in front of a female officer. And he had to beg and plead to pull his pants up,” McBride said.
Here’s video of his comments:
“Solitary confinement is widely accepted as torture by the ACLU, the United Nations, Legal Aid Society, multiple members of Congress, including Elizabeth Warren,” he said, telling Kelly he is prepared to reach out to Amnesty International to investigate the human rights violations visited upon American citizens by the federal government.
“The more I hear, the more this sounds like Gitmo,” Kelly said.
Actually, this is worse than Gitmo. Apparently, Biden’s Department of “Justice” has concluded that Trump supporters do not have Constitutional rights and deserve being beaten and abused.
Appearing with Steve Bannon, reporter Julie Kelly discussed the Biden Regime’s campaign of terror against Trump supporters:
Just think, THIS is what Democrats and their media sycophants want for anyone who supports Trump.
