The Supreme Court of the United States met on Friday to decide whether or not to take up J6 defendant Jake Lang’s case asserting that the 1512 Obstruction of Congress charge against him is unconstitutional. As Lang, who’s been held more than 1,000 days with no trial, explained to National File in an exclusive interview from the DC Gulag, his case has the potential to blow up the DOJ’s charges against not just himself, but hundreds of other J6 defendants, including President Trump, charged under a politicized perversion of the law.
J6 Patriot Jake Lang spoke to National File in an exclusive phone interview from the DC Gulag, where he’s being held in solitary confinement, as he has been for the vast majority of his time across more than a dozen federal detention facilities since his 2021 arrest. As Lang spoke with National File, the Supreme Court of the United States was deciding whether or not to take up his case, a challenge to the constitutionality of the 1512 Obstruction of Congress charge faced by Lang and hundreds of other J6 defendants, including President Trump himself.
The charge carries up to two decades in prison, and a decision from the high court, on whether or not it will hear arguments in Lang’s challenge, is expected by December 4th.
“This charge was originally made a federal criminal statute during the Enron case,” Lang explained during his interview with National File. “Congress wanted to ensure that the massive corporation Enron wasn’t going to shred their documents, doctor them, or obfuscate them in any way [after they’d been subpoenaed] and so they made it a very serious federal felony to do so.”
“The 1512 Obstruction of Congress charge centers around the word ‘corrupt’, or ‘corruptly’,” Lang explained to National File.
“The Supreme Court will be looking at the word ‘corruptly’ as it’s applied in the law, to determine whether or not the intentions of J6 demonstrators were ‘corrupt’,” he went on.
“We were at the Capitol on January 6th in the name of the Constitution and liberty. We’re arguing that the word ‘corruptly’ in the statute is misapplied. For them to say we were there ‘corruptly’ is ridiculous.”
“The DOJ is taking this charge and they’re overbroadly and selectively applying it,” Lang told National File.
“They’re saying that the J6ers are different than the Palestinian protestors who stormed the Capitol, or the Kavanaugh protestors who disrupted proceedings, or Rep. Jamaal Bowman, who was caught on camera pulling a fire alarm in the Capitol, apparently to obstruct a Congressional hearing.”
As mentioned, Lang’s case with the Supreme Court could have a wide-reaching impact on the entire J6 persecution saga, including as it pertains to President Trump.
“In effect, us fighting this in the Supreme Court presents the greatest opportunity for President Trump to stay out of prison,” Lang told National File. “Out of all the charges in his indictments, Obstruction of Congress is by far the heftiest charge.”
“The political implication of whether they take this case or not is whether the Republican frontrunner will be running his campaign from inside a prison cell or not,” Lang went on.
“If the Supreme Court does pick this up and then side with us in our case, it will send a shockwave out to all of the George Soros prosecutors and all of the weaponized prosecutors and federal agencies out there that this will not stand!” said Lang.
“Abusing the law, using it as an instrument to bend to your will, will not stand!”
