Posted on 05/03/2017 2:32:07 PM PDT by Oldeconomybuyer
A jury convicted a woman on Wednesday who was arrested during a congressional hearing in January after laughing at the claim that now-Attorney General Jeff Sessions had a record of treating Americans equally.
Desiree Fairooz, an activist associated with the organization Code Pink, was found guilty on two counts: one for engaging in disorderly or disruptive conduct with the intent to disrupt congressional proceedings and a separate count for parading, demonstrating or picketing.
Tighe Barry and Lenny Bianchi, who pretended to be KKK members supporting Sessions and were tried alongside Fairooz, were convicted on two of three charges. The jury found them not guilty of a disruption count because they took action before the hearing was gaveled in.
Barry, Bianchi and Fairooz are all due back in court in June. Jail time is possible because of the statutes they were convicted under, but probably unlikely. Justice Department attorneys David Stier and Jason Covert declined to comment on their sentencing recommendations.
Bill Miller, a spokesman for the U.S. Attorneys Office for the District of Columbia, said the office had no comment on the verdicts.

Now, on to Antifa terrorists.
Prison aversion therapy in action. I LIKE IT!
Quick Action with a good result!! Something NEW!! Now WHY hasn’t the leader of Code Pink, Medea Benjamin, been arrested?
Gotta give these people jail time and not just 30 days or some other slap on the wrist. Give them 6 months to send a message so the next people who think about doing this will think twice. If they still do it and know they will spend at least 6 months in jail; you at least know they are passionate about their “convictions”.

What a difference having a real man as president makes!
She never would have been arrested, much less convicted, under the Obama Regime.
After 30 days if they haven’t been a problem prisoner give them a conditional probation to see if they learned anything.
The black guy got it right, put your gloves on first before handing toxic material.
They need to start giving these people serious jail time. Society needs to be civil. We are losing that. There is a time and place for weird antics
Hope this is true. Maybe it is starting.
Way to spin the headline Huffpo.
It looks like some dude you’d see panhandling on Telegraph Ave in Beserkeley.
Looks like Jeff just kicked the DOJ switch from ‘obfuscate’ to ‘prosecute’. He had Huma Abedin’s cousins taken down Monday.
Now the RATS don’t know *what* to do. All the deals they tried to negotiate to save their necks might be proving null and void.
They really need to start throwing the book at these disruptive crackpots. A minimum of six months, without time served. And if they assault anyone, it should be a felony.
Hahaha. What an absolute loser...and lunatic.
For what it’s worth, I also read Sessions has announced the DOJ is going after the M-13 gangs on Long Island.
