Michael Fanone, who was stun-fryed several times and beaten with a flagpole during the attack, told CNN Don Lemon on “CNN Tonight” that “the terminology that was used was, ‘hugs and kisses,’ and ‘ Something like very fine people, ‘very different from what I have experienced and my colleagues have experienced at 6th. “
Trump also claimed that some of the rioters “walked in, and they are hugging and kissing police and guards.”
Fanon suffered a heart attack and an injury during the rebellion and is now dealing with a traumatic brain injury and post-traumatic stress disorder.
He said, “I faced the most brutal, barbaric war in my entire life.” “My policing career alone, which spans almost two decades. It was nothing I ever thought would be a part of my law enforcement career, nor was I ready to experience.”
During a dispute outside the Capitol, Sibic allegedly grabbed Fanon’s badge and radio, and later posted a photo of himself holding a police shield on Facebook, court filings say.
“I want people to understand the importance of January 6,” Fanon said on Tuesday. “I want people to understand that thousands of rioters have come to hell on violence and destruction and murder.”
