Des Moines, Iowa – The Des Moines man charged for Capitol riot involvement submitted a plea through his lawyer to the federal judge to dismiss one of the charges against him.
Federal prosecutors have filed seven charges against Doug Jensen.
Jensen’s lawyer, on the other hand, claims that allegations of “obstruction of justice in an official court proceeding” are only used against individuals who interfere with court proceedings.
They argue that it isn’t applicable to congressional hearings.
Jensen’s lawyer says the charge is a violation of his Fifth Amendment rights.
