Adam Jackson, a protester from the Capitol Incursion, has reportedly been released from custody.
In a tweet posted on Tuesday, attorney Joseph McBride stated, “Adam Jackson retained me in June after a TX Judge locked him up for protesting on J6. He was then extradited from TX to the Northern Neck Regional Jail Gulag. I argued for his release last week. WE WON. Adam Jackson will be released today!!!”
The tweet included a picture of an order approving Jackson’s release from custody from the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia.

Jackson and his brother Brian Jackson, both of Katy, Texas, were ordered to be held without bond by a federal judge in June, days after their arrest, according to KHOU-TV.
Brian Jackson was not mentioned by McBride.
According to KTRK-TV, Magistrate Judge Andrew M. Edison described the two as a “threat to the community.” For their trial, they were taken to Washington, D.C.
Both males are accused of assaulting, obstructing, or hindering officials as well as inciting civil disorder and other related offenses, according to a Department of Justice news release published at the time of their arrest.
The DOJ claimed that Brian Jackson threw a flagpole at police. Adam Jackson was accused of charging officers while brandishing what appeared to be a Capitol Police riot shield and tossing something at them.
According to Law & Crime, McBride described Adam Jackson as “a man who while living freely from January 7, 2021-June 7, 2022, broke no laws and committed no crimes.”
“The Government, in its lust to jail anyone who went to the Capitol on January 6, 2021, has turned a blind eye to the fact that Mr. Jackson is a husband, father, grandfather, business owner, employer, mentor, coach, churchgoer, and law-abiding citizen,” McBride claimed.

“No matter how you feel about Jan. 6, or no matter how anybody feels about George Floyd and that situation, there is some commonality there,” he said. CONTINUE READING…
