NH Letter Carrier Who ‘Chugged’ Glass of Wine Amid Capitol Riot Says He Has No Regrets
On Thursday, Riddle resigned from his position as a mail carrier at the U.S. Postal Service and announced that he’s running for Cheshire County Commissioner, which he’s done before, according to The Sentinel Source.
Jason Riddle said he now understands he likely broke the law by going into the Capitol but hasn’t yet heard from any law enforcement agency
In the interview, Riddle denounced his fellow Trump supporters who turned what he thought would be a peaceful protest into a historic assault on our government.
“Those psychopaths going around breaking things and hurting people can rot in hell,” Riddle said.
Amid the mayhem, Riddle said, he found a liquor cabinet inside a lawmaker’s office, poured himself a glass of wine and watched it all unfold.
“And I chugged it and got out of there,” he said.
Riddle said it was all a distraction from the message he hoped to bring to D.C.
“It definitely is not what it was supposed to be about, it wasn’t getting anything accomplished,” he said
