QAnon Shaman asked Mark Meadows about getting a pardon from Trump: attorney

An attorney representing "QAnon Shaman" Jacob Chansley says that his client reached out to former Trump chief of staff Mark Meadows earlier this year to ask about being pardoned for storming the Capitol.

In a new court filing flagged by NBC 4 Washington's Scott MacFarlane, the attorney representing Chansley claimed that his client "reached out to then White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows to confirm a request on behalf of the Defendant for a Presidential Pardon of the Defendant and other peaceful individuals who had accepted the President's invitation to go to the Capitol."

The attorney said that Chansley made this request "by and through his counsel" on January 14th, just over a week after the deadly riot took place and days before the end of Trump's term.

Although Trump did issue a series of last-minute pardons for his political allies, including one-time campaign manager Steve Bannon, he did not end up pardoning any of the MAGA rioters who stormed the Capitol on his behalf.
