In March of this year, Boyd Camper was charged with four federal crimes in relation to his participation in the riot at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6. This Tuesday, the Department of Justice recommended that he spend two months in jail, NBC4's Scott MacFarlane reports.
According to MacFarlane, the FBI says Camper initially claimed that "several busloads of Antifa members, escorted by State Police, were brought to the Capitol to wreak havoc." But in an earlier TV interview, he declared, "We're going to take this damn place. If you haven't heard it's called the insurrection act and we the people are ready."
"Camper confirmed his presence inside the Capitol Building during a video interview with CBS News that was subsequently posted online," court papers read. "In the video, the interviewer introduced a person on the grounds outside the Capitol building as Boyd Camper from Montana. Wearing a blue jacket and camouflage hat, Camper acknowledged that he was inside of the Capitol."
Although Camper brought his 10-year-old son with him to the Capitol, he left the child outside with a friend when he illegally entered the building on January 6th.
