2020 ELECTION: “An Ohio man who claimed he was only ‘following presidential orders’ from Donald Trump when he stormed the US Capitol [on January 6 to protest the 2020 election result] has been convicted by a jury that took less than three hours to reject his novel defence for obstructing Congress from certifying Joe Biden’s presidential victory…

[H]e said he believed Trump’s false claim that the election was stolen and was trying to stand up for him. ‘If the president is giving you almost an order to do something, I felt obligated to do that,’ he said.”
