Springfield Man Found Guilty for January 6th Infractions

From the U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia which is located in the Patrick Henry Building:

Illinois Man Found Guilty of Charges For Actions During Jan. 6 Capitol Breach

WASHINGTON – An Illinois man was found guilty, at a stipulated trial in the District of Columbia, of a felony and a misdemeanor for his actions during the breach of the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021. His actions and the actions of others disrupted a joint session of the U.S. Congress convened to ascertain and count the electoral votes related to the presidential election.

Thomas B. Adams, Jr., 41, of Springfield, Illinois, was found guilty on January 31, 2023, of the felony charge of obstruction of an official proceeding and aiding and abetting entering and the misdemeanor of remaining in a restricted building or grounds.

The trial was held before U.S. District Court Judge Amit Mehta, who scheduled a sentencing hearing for June 16, 2023.

According to the stipulated facts, on Jan. 6, 2021, Adams passed through a security perimeter on the west side of the Capitol Building where he joined rioters.

At approximately 2:48 pm, Adams was among the rioters who entered the Capitol Building through the Parliamentarian Door, which is a fire door.

On February 4, 2021, Adams told the FBI that other people had breached the door with “window washing equipment.”

He also stated that he walked into the Capitol building over broken glass, and that one of the doors through which he entered had a broken window.

After entering, Adams ignored and walked past a line of U.S. Capitol Police just beyond the Parliamentarian Door who were attempting to stop the rioters.

Once Adams made his way past the line of officers, he made his way to the Senate Chamber by walking by Vice President Pence’s ceremonial office.

At approximately 3:04 p.m., Adams entered the Senate Chamber through a door on the second floor.

Adams knew that he did not have authorization to enter the Senate Chamber.

Adams walked into to the Senate well, where he and multiple other rioters walked among the Senators’ desks.

While on the Senate floor, Adams took pictures with his cellphone.

At approximately 3:11 pm, law enforcement escorted Adams out of the Capitol Building via the Senate Carriage Door.

Adams described this to the FBI as being “forced out.”

After being removed from the Capitol, Adams told a reporter that he had traveled from Springfield, Illinois, for the rally President Trump had held earlier in the day and that he had been spurred on by President Trump’s claim that he had been cheated out of victory.

On February 4, 2021, Adams told the FBI that it was his intent to peacefully occupy the Capitol building.

He stated, “since we were planning to occupy, we didn’t know if they were going to be out there for one day, five days, or a week.”

Adams was arrested on April 13, 2021, in Springfield, Illinois.

He faces a statutory maximum of 20 years in prison on the obstruction charge, as well as potential financial penalties.

A federal district court judge will determine any sentence after considering the U.S. Sentencing Guidelines and other statutory factors.

This case is being prosecuted by the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Columbia. Valuable assistance was provided by the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Central District of Illinois.

The case is being investigated by the FBI’s Springfield Field Office and Washington Field Office. Valuable assistance was provided by the Metropolitan Police Department and the U.S. Capitol Police.

In the 24 months since Jan. 6, 2021, more than 950 individuals have been arrested in nearly all 50 states for crimes related to the breach of the U.S. Capitol, including over 284 individuals charged with assaulting or impeding law enforcement. The investigation remains ongoing.

  1. I can’t wait for those 14k hours of tape to be released showing all the FBI actors like Ray Epps and the ANTIFA idiots dressed as Trump supporrers be the first ones to start the breach of the capitol. False flag much.

  2. There was a lot of video footage, documentation taken of the riot on Jan 6th at the Capitol that has been not released for viewing by Americans.

    House Speaker Kevin McCarthy said he would work on releasing it.

    Americans need to see all of the various videos of the exterior of the Capitol when the rioters approached the building, milled about it and then entered it.

    So many questions such as did any, many, most, all security forces allow the rioters to enter through the doors? Videos would shed some light on that.

    The entire Jan 6th riot needs to be investigated again, but this time by Republicans in control of the House.

    So many questions still remain such as why there were insufficient security forces on hand at the Capitol building when it was well known before Jan 6 that there would be many, many people coming to the Capitol.

    Who might have been grossly derelict in not providing adequate security? Nancy Pelosi the Speaker of the House and/or the Capitol Police Chief?

    Had Trump offered National Guard forces the day before and was the offer declined by Pelosi, the Police Chief or who?

    As always, trust no Democrat.

    Look what Democrat Hillary Rodman Clinton and her Democrat henchmen did to Trump with the phony Trump Dosier, Muller hearings scam, etc.

  3. Yes, there should have been more security.

    Yet, who figured Republicans weren’t going to behave themselves, that they’d go ANTIFA, engaging in the same behaviors they criticized others for all year long?

    IF we’re lamenting such lax security for failing to stop people from making idiots of themselves?

    That, “Why didn’t anyone stop me from being such an assh*le?”

    Oh well.

    Stupid is as stupid does.

    Stupid takes photos and recordings and proudly uploads them everywhere.

  4. Do an online search for “man who burned police car during protest,” and you’ll find a number of people sentenced to prison for destruction during riots.

  5. Martin, that can’t be right. It didn’t appear in any of the RW conspiracy blogs that this crowd reads. It’s more MSM covering up. LOL

    Those blogs have no slant, just honest reporting? LOL

  6. Just curious Martin and Porky. What search engine should one use to find the truth you spout? That ought to be a fun response to read. LOL.

    Keep relying on your teleprompter reading monkeys to read to you the pre-approved truth you should believe.

  7. Really?

    this is it?

    trespass seems to be all he did if at best… !

    yet looters and robbers and killers and illegals and burning down city’s is OK to these libtards…

    or better yet how about hiding CLASSIFIED DOCS that you have NO Business having at your homes unlocked, is OK to them…

    all this is OK… unbelieveable..

  8. That’s sea lion nonsense.

    What search engine do you suggest?

    Use that one.

    Use whatever search tool you want.

    They are not all the same.

    Find a source of local news that reports the conviction.

    If you think it is a false story, go to the online court records to verify.

    If you think the court records are fake, go to the actual courthouse and ask.

  9. There are libtards, no doubt. But then, there are Qtards as well.

  10. “…better yet how about hiding CLASSIFIED DOCS that you have NO Business having at your homes”

    Like Trumpty Dumpty.

  11. My god the whackiness and cluelessness of you 2 fools Martin and Monk is unbelievable. Only 1 more day and you’ll be in the Prius with your tubes of chap stick to do what you do best. Fluff the men on Halsted. Is Porky coming this weekend? LOL

  12. Ever wonder why all the chicken farms are miraculously catching fire and the price of eggs is through the roof?

    I’ll defer to the NIH to tell you the reason.

    Enjoy your jabs fools.


    Oh nevermind, we didn’t hear about it in a 1 minute soundbite from the MSM.

    It’s an insurrection I tell you.

    Q whispered it in my ear. LOL

  13. When you’re done researching the egg shortage tell me all you know about Ihor Kolomoisky and Zelenskyy and Metabiota and Rosemont Seneca and Hunter Biden and John Kerry’s son. Is that too much for you 2 Einsteins to process. It must be a right wing Qspiracy right simps?

    Quick run to Google. That search engine is absolutely reliable for the truth you believe.

    Just like this story, J6 was an insurrection. I’m glad the media explained that to me. LOL

  14. JT, care to elaborate on how the layperson might isolate and utilize these egg yolk proteins? Is that really their master plan, make the common cure just uncomfortably expensive enough that you walk past it in the grocery store oblivious to the fact that it would save you. HEY JOE ROGAN, GOOD NEWS!! IT WASN’T IVERMECTIN AND VITAMIN D, TURNS OUT IT WAS JUST PLAIN OL’ EGGS THE WHOLE GODDAMNED TIME!!

  15. Don’t worry Cornpop. You get your protein on the weekends with your 2 buddies. It wasn’t directed to a fluffer like you.

    Fyi…that wasn’t my point. The point is if you were stupid enough to listen to the media you could counter the death jab you shot into your body. You keep assuming.

    PS…I don’t follow Joe Rogan.

  16. So….. they’re trying to crush our spirits and all of humanity by making restaurant omelets $15?

    Hope Zelenskyy has enough whiteboards.

  17. I’ll be sure and get an extra egg McMuffin in tomorrow. Maybe extracting those egg yolk proteins might be easier than wringing that adrenochrome out of those terrified little tykes.

  18. “Ever wonder why all the chicken farms are miraculously catching fire and the price of eggs is through the roof?”

    I guess they ran out of churches?

  19. ROFLMAO. Did I hit a nerve Einstein? I’m glad you did a few bongs rather than explain the relationship in my 223 post.

    You eat McDonald’s slop too? I guess smoking dope kills your senses. You have any more ore do you have to fill your Trump bong?

  20. Popcorn, your juvenile posts always make me laugh … at you!

  21. Can someone explain why all the liberal perverts and drug addicts live in southern McHenry County? It seems to be a trend.


    They just opened a dope shop in Crystal Lake. What an improvement to the liberal community to keep them even dumber than they already are.

    Complete stupidity. I’m waiting for the phrase “it’s for the children” to start being espoused.

  22. All fear porn. Totally set up by Langley as usual. They got caught in their web of lies and STILL are trying to push an issue over their incompetence in performing false flags.

  23. Let’s not forget the doom porn perverts in the north and west that are addicted to every sort of internet nonsense.

  24. Twelve year ago in Madison, WI, teachers stormed the Capitol Building there and occupied it for many weeks and were not ejected.

  25. The science in your government agency published study is fake and gay, JT.

    They were out here the other day saying you have to drink coca cola so that your BALLS make more testosterone. For real.

    Science is fake lmao you’re falling for it because it fits into your worldview since obviously they ARE going after eggs.

    The real reason eggs are under attack is because Big Soy doesn’t want you having animal protein and the Green Mafia hates animals.

    It’s not cuz it prevents COVID or something smh If there were any health reason to go after eggs it would be b12 which eggs are high in.

    Big pharma doesn’t want people getting enough vitamins and minerals.

    Many things can be solved by just good diet.

    People not getting enough b 12 will have low energy levels and may be depressed too!

    But this “oh yeah the thing binds on to the spike protein receptor and keeps the spike from binding to the binding site” or whatever that CRAP is is just dumb dude.

    You are to eat eggs because they taste good, not because you are afraid of coronavirus.

  26. Having spent two years in Germany, I confess that I was amazed and shocked at the number of blonde haired, blue eyed German women that actually LIKED to “associate” with black American GI’s.

    Once during the very depths of the Cold War, the East Berlin government constructed a large billboard on a tall building just on their side of the Wall.

    The billboard was deliberately situated as to be easily visible in West Berlin.

    The billboard showed two ape-like, black American soldiers menacing a beautiful blonde haired, blue eyed German lady.

    The caption (in German, of course) said, “THEY are here to protect you from US?”

  27. Congrats Correcting. You understand the stupidity of giving tax dollars to the swamp.



  29. Kenneally would have jumped at the opportunity to prosecute these type cases as he’d have looked at the amount of press coverage and benefits to himself. ‘Justice? Who cares about Justice! You can’t buy this type of media access!’
