It also recalls that as the crowd grew nearer to the building, Wiedrich yelled "We're not done!" and "Charge! Charge the motherf*cker!" At other points he also shouted "Take it back!" and "we ride for Trump, we die for Trump!"
He was arrested in July 2021 and ultimately agreed to plead guilty to 1 count, the Justice Department said.
