Biden’s FBI Arrests Oregon Journalist for Breaking Pelosi’s Sign during Jan 6

President Joe Biden’s FBI is helping the Democrats to “save democracy” by arresting an independent journalist for breaking a sign during the protests at the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021.

The FBI arrested an Oregon man for breaking former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s (D-CA) sign during Jan. 6.

34-year-old David Medina, of Sherwood, was arrested by FBI agents in Portland for allegedly smashing a wooden sign with Pelosi’s name and title.

Medina was charged with several misdemeanors, including destruction of government property and entering a restricted area.

His most serious charge is a felony for obstruction of an official proceeding.

The Justice Department has charged hundreds of Jan. 6 participants with the same crime.

The charge also forms half of Jack Smith’s Jan. 6 indictment against President Donald Trump.

The scope of the obstruction statute is set for a review by the Supreme Court in a dispute involving another Jan. 6 defendant.

During the Capitol protests, Medina allegedly smashed a wooden sign outside Pelosi’s office.

The sign said: “Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi.”

Medina was also seen waving an “ornate American flag” that was likely taken from inside the Capitol, the DOJ said.

The day after Jan. 6, Medina admitted his participation and said it felt “so good” to break Pelosi’s sign.

He also identified himself as the FBI’s “favorite citizen” in a post on X.

“So as these guys break into the Capitol, obviously the doors are wide open,” Medina said at the time.

“I walk in and I am screaming ‘1776,’ cause it’s powerful man.

“It’s a powerful move, a powerful time.”

The arrest comes more than three years after the Jan. 6, which has continued to play a significant role in the campaign rhetoric of the Democrats.

Biden, facing low approval ratings, has focused on the Jan. 6 “insurrection” to paint Trump as a so-called threat to “our democracy.”

The Biden Justice Department has continued to prioritize cracking down on Jan. 6 participants, with over 1,300 defendants charged.

The majority have not been accused of violence.

Pelosi relinquished the speaker’s gavel following GOP gains in the 2022 midterm elections that gave Republicans control of the House.

In one of her last acts as Speaker, Pelosi spearheaded the Jan. 6 committee, which produced a lengthy report falsely accusing Trump of leading an “insurrection.”

Those claims are at the heart of multiple legal efforts to prosecute Trump and disqualify him from the ballot in 2024.
