lawyer in discussing his client and the other terrorists who took over the capitol. This defense will be used often by these defendants.

“We all have to understand that the words that were spoken by the president meant something, not just to my client. They meant something to a lot of people,” Watkins said in his interview.

“They listened to those words. And those words meant something to them. And they had a right to rely on the words of their president that was strewed forth worldwide,” he said. “And they did. And now they’re turning around [and] they’re getting arrested, as well many should be.”

Nevertheless, Trump “needs to stand up and own these people,” Watkins argued. “He has an obligation to them. He has an obligation to our nation. It’s not going to happen.”

Watkins went on to compare the president’s supporters who stormed the Capitol to the Jonestown cult members who committed mass suicide at their settlement in Guyana in 1978: “You know the only thing different here? There’s no Kool-Aid.”

Is he arguing that his client was brainwashed? Interesting. Patty Hearst served two years in prison before Carter commuted her sentence. Clinton finally pardoned her 20 years later. Precedent is not in his favor here for walking scot free.
