Couy Griffin trial set for March

blank

Mobile phone video captures the violence and chaos of that day.

“I have seen videos similar to yours and there are people who have acted extremely stupidly, recklessly and violently, and I do not agree with any kind of such behaviour,” Griffin said. “Never have. It makes me sick whenever I watch it.”

Griffin said he never entered the Capitol building. He said he went to pray and exercised his right to protest peacefully, but he was arrested for his involvement.

Brittany Costello: Several people are facing charges, including you. Do you regret anything that happened?

Couy Griffin: As for regrets, I don’t have any regrets since that day. I do not participate in anything violent, disruptive or disorderly. I just stand where I believe is my constitutional right to protest peacefully.

Just this week, Griffin’s attorneys filed new motions on his behalf – one asking for evidence and another claiming his allegations were politically motivated. Griffin intends to bring the charges to trial, claiming there is more to it than seeing.

Couy Griffin: All of the videos that day showed Capitol police opening doors, punching people who entered and beating people and assaulting people on Capitol grounds. It’s something the media isn’t telling us right now, not showing us – but it will.

Brittany Costello: Do you personally have any of those videos?

Couy Griffin: It’s correct.

Brittany Costello: Are you willing to share those?

Couy Griffin: You know, those things will have to go through my advice.

Griffin said he was offered two plea deals but he declined. A year later, he still believes the election was tampered with. In fact, in Otero County, he said, they plan to conduct an election check, looking for fraud. He said trustees are expected to approve funding for next week.
