Brandon Straka SPEAKING OUT After Being Sentenced TODAY Following Outrageous YEAR LONG January 6th Case

Brandon Straka was sentenced today in federal court after a year long legal nightmare stemming from US Government charges against him for being on Capitol Grounds on January 6th.




Brandon DID NOT enter the US Capitol Building.

He DID NOT participate in any acts of violence, vandalism, theft, or destruction nor was he charged with such crimes. Brandon has consistently denounced the violence and destruction of January 6th.

Brandon was present on the East side Capitol steps (opposite the West side where the violence synonymous with that day occurred) for EIGHT MINUTES filming the scene he was witnessing: a large group of people attempting to make their way toward two large metal doors, which were wide open. The crowd Straka witnessed was not “rioting” or engaging in destruction, as had happened earlier on the opposite side of the Capitol building.


On January 25th, 2021, the FBI raided Brandon Straka’s home, presented him with a warrant for his arrest and to search and seize his property. He was taken to jail in handcuffs and spent 2 days in 24 hour lockdown inside a small concrete cell. When released, he learned the government had charged him with 2 felony charges and 1 misdemeanor charge. This began a year long nightmare of relentless, endless harassment and abuse from the federal government, media, and Big Tech.

• Brandon is now placed on a TSA terrorism list, which results in hours of invasive and intimidating screening every time he travels.


• He was evicted from his apartment following release from jail due to media coverage of him as an “Insurrectionist” guilty of “killing people” at a “MAGA riot”.


• Immediately after his arrest, Brandon was permanently banned by companies including PayPal, Venmo, Stripe, Patreon, MailChimp, Constant Contact, Anedot, Classy, and more.


• The Government has repeatedly tried to find a conspiracy related to
January 6th, and conducted numerous interviews with Brandon Straka
attempting to find links between the violence of that day and White
House insiders and the Trump Administration. Brandon has
consistently denied that any such conspiracy exists.

After living through this harrowing and crushing experience, Brandon is now ready to come forward and tell his story. The world needs to know and understand what is being done to those January 6th defendants who have, at worst, committed petty crimes. All people charged are being treated as dangerous, violent terrorists and their lives are being torn apart. Brandon has experienced this himself.

“I have consistently condemned all violence and destruction that took place on January 6th, as well as ALL political violence. But hundreds of non-violent people have been dragged through hell for the purposes of creating political theater. I am now ready to come forward and make myself available for interviews to share my firsthand account of the atrocities being done to good people who had the misfortune of being present on January 6th, 2021 without any intention of criminal wrongdoing.”
