Making plea deals is something that prosecutors routinely do, but the federal prosecutors offered plea deals to J6ers, William Chrestman and Ryan Zink that should get them locked up in prison for years or even decades.
Supporting perjury is a serious charge and if you add extortion in order to threaten defendants in order to get them to lie on the stand, I might even suggest life in prison, although judging by history, the chances of them paying for their criminal acts are never going to happen.
Look Ahead America’s Matt Braynard was able to visit the prisoners in the DC gulag and this is what he discovered:
“Just going in was completely dehumanizing…but I went there to meet a guy named William Chrestman…this guy has not been charged with any violence. He’s a military veteran. He’s not being charged with conspiracy or organizing or anything…he’s just a guy who showed up.
He was arrested in January of 2021. He still doesn’t have a trial date and they have denied him his psychiatric medicine. He tried to keep journals and they just come through and throw all of his papers away. He has two daughters he has not seen for those two years plus.
Two young daughters. And he was finally going to get to see them the week after I was in to visit him. Whatever the wildest thing in the world they wanted to accuse him of, that they might even charge him with, he would have already had time served. But they’re keeping him in there in dire conditions, still without a trial date. A military veteran, not charged with any violence, because they can. Not for what he did, but because of what he believes.“
Right after that Braynard made another shocking claim about Chrestman’s situation. He said that Chrestman told him that he was offered a plea deal that could get him released possibly right away if he pleaded guilty to two lesser charges and he was willing to claim that the Donald made him do it. Ryan Zink later confirmed that he was offered a similar deal.

The Gateway Pundit’s Alicia Powe had the opportunity to interview Chrestman in April about the events of that day, the treatment of J6ers in the “DC Gulag” and the federal government’s role regarding the events. In the in-depth article, Chrestman told Powe:
“We’ve got confidential human sources, which is just a fancy word for FBI rat,” he said. “They are basically people who have been caught doing other bad things.
So, what the FBI does is they hire them and give them a deal: ‘Hey, we’ll get rid of your charges, we won’t press charges against you, but you come work for us and we’ll pay you. We’ll pay you damn good money.’
Some of these guys are getting paid $30k a month to set people up. I’ve got a confidential informant — and the funny thing is, they are saying I did nothing wrong. And they still lock me up — their own informant says I did nothing wrong.”
Zink was arrested on February 4th, 2021, less than one month after the protest at the Capitol. FBI agents raided Ryan’s house at 3am with a “no knock” warrant, leaving his door blown off the frame. He was arrested and kept in Lubbock County, TX for days during a snowstorm, but was later moved to the “Gulag” in Washington D.C. where he was held for six weeks in solitary confinement. Around week five of his detainment in the Gulag, Ryan called his father in tears and told him ‘Dad, I don’t mind getting beaten every night at 9 o’clock when we say the Pledge of Allegiance and sing the National Anthem. But the guy that was beaten next to me, I could hear what they did for a very long time. They ended up having to take him to the infirmary. I don’t know if he’s alive or dead or whatever. They are now trying to kill us inside of this Gulag. You’ve got to get me out.’”
Ehmke, the man Zink was trying to stop from damaging the Capitol, was detained that day and let go, but was later arrested at his home and let go the very next day on a $40,000 bond, something most J6ers who did no damage to the building were not given the luxury of. Ehmke was also not subjected to a “no knock” raid and his door was not broken down.
In the sentencing document, Ehmke is said to have “began to experiment with drugs” and traveled “on his own to Portland and Seattle,” two hot bed cities for Antifa. The next four pages of the sentencing document immediately following the travel admission are strangely redacted.
