Jacob Anthony Chansley was forced to “reconcile” his shamanic faith in Donald Trump after the former president rejected his pardon only to grant clemency to his colleagues and personal friends, like Lil ‘Wayne.
In a motion for interim release that begins with a misallocated quote to Mark Twain, lawyers claim the so-called Shaman QAnon is a work in progress of “self-analysis” who dedicates his life to art, to l writing and working with children. .
“A lie can travel halfway around the world while the truth takes its place,” the motion begins, attributing a quote to Mr. Twain who was likely born centuries earlier thanks to satirist Jonathan Swift.
The motion for provisional release filed in the United States District Court said Mr Chansley was “very grateful” for the efforts made to meet his food needs, after his hunger strike until he received organic food.
“That being said, and without denigrating the efforts of the authorities in this regard, the defendant experienced significant digestive problems for which a medical consultation was requested,” the motion states.
Lawyer Albert Watkins writes in the motion that Mr Chansley’s attorney has contacted former White House chief of staff Mark Meadows to confirm a request for a presidential pardon following his arrest.
“After the Respondent noted former President Trump’s forgiveness to his friends and colleagues and Lil ‘Wayne, the Respondent was forced to reconcile his prior faith in former President Trump with the actions and words of the former President Trump, ”the motion reads.
Mr Chansley offered to testify against the ex-president during the impeachment trial, saying he was one of the people prompted by Mr Trump’s actions and speech at The Ellipse on January 6.
The offer was not accepted by impeachment officials in the Democratic House.
The motion gives further insight into Mr Chansley, his shamanic faith and profession as a published author and artist, living by the Ahimsa principle, which promotes a life that does not harm any living being.
Mr. Chansley’s legel team submitted in evidence examples of his art and listings on Amazon for his books, One mind at a time: a deep state of illusion, written under the name of Jacob Angeli, and Will and power: in the living library, written under the name Loan Wolf.
Lawyers also said Mr Chansley has been held in solitary confinement since being taken into custody due to Covid-19 requirements and that his shamanistic beliefs prevented him from getting the vaccine.
They said the anti-vaccination belief system was an issue while he served on the USS Kittyhawk for two years until his service was cut off due to his refusal to be vaccinated against anthrax.
“The Respondent wishes to confirm as a matter of record herein that his current self-analysis is a work in progress, which has given rise to his conclusion that he [has] no interest in dealing and dealing with all political issues, ”the motion says.
