  • The fact that we had a bunch of our traitors in office hunker down, put on their gas masks and retreat into their underground bunker, I consider that a win
  • [Regarding Donald Trump's decision not to assist those individuals arrested for their role in the riots, Chansley stated he still believed Trump cared about the Constitution and the American people, and that is why it] wounded me so deeply and why it disappointed me so greatly that I and others did not get a pardon.
  • No, they were not, ma'am. My actions were not an attack on this country. That is incorrect. That is inaccurate, entirely.
    Well, I sang a song. And that's a part of shamanism. It's about-- creating positive vibrations in a sacred chamber.
    I also stopped people from stealing and vandalizing that sacred space, the Senate. Okay?
    I actually stopped somebody from stealing muffins out of the-- out of the break room.
    And I also said a prayer in that sacred chamber.
    Because it was my intention to bring divinity, and to bring God back into the Senate.
    And that is-- and that is the one very serious regret that I have, was believing that when we were waved in by police officers, that it was acceptable.
    I consider myself a lover of my country.
    I consider myself a believer in the Constitution.
    I consider myself a believer in truth and our founding principles.
    I consider myself a believer in God.
  • One of the funny things is that I never ever ever called myself the QAnon Shaman, but the media said that I gave myself that name, that I called myself the QAnon Shaman. That never happened.
