‘I do regret being there’: Simone Gold, noted hydroxychloroquine advocate, was inside the Capitol during the riot

A doctor and outspoken critic of the coronavirus vaccine was among those who entered the Capitol building last week during the siege that disrupted the certification of the 2020 presidential election.

Simone Gold gained national attention in July when she and other physicians appeared in front of the Supreme Court for a sparsely attended news conference to decry pandemic lockdowns and criticize government efforts to stop the spread of the disease. Video of the event, organized by conservative activists, was retweeted by the president and viewed by millions before social media platforms took it down.

Gold confirmed to The Washington Post that she is the person pictured carrying a bullhorn on the Capitol grounds Wednesday in FBI and D.C. police bulletins seeking more information about individuals who were present.

Although dozens of Capitol Police officers were injured when they were overrun by pro-Trump protesters and one later died as a result, Gold said she did not witness any violence. ... “I can certainly speak to the place that I was, and it most emphatically was not a riot,” the California resident said in a phone interview Monday. “Where I was, was incredibly peaceful.” ... Gold confirmed that she went inside the Capitol, saying she followed a crowd and assumed that it was legal to do so. She said she has not been contacted by anyone in law enforcement.

4. Another tourist!

This seems to be a talking point that a lot of the rioters are trying to adopt: "Yeah, I went into the Capitol Building, but I thought it was okay. No, I didn't see any violence! Goodness, I would have gotten out of there in a hurry if there had been someone being violent and stuff."

I say now, who do, who do you think you're foolin'?

5. It's amazing how many of those perpetrators are known quantities

in some way, from individuals known to law enforcement to people IN law enforcement and ex-military to state and federal politicians to people sitting on various boards. We are going to learn a whole lot more about who makes up this cult.

6. Their excuses are straight out of a naughty kid's playbook. All their friends

were doing it so they thought it was okay, they didn't personally do anything bad, it must've been someone else. And now they're so sorry they did it. Good grief.

Violently pulling a cop away from his post, and throwing him out into the mob?

Why, yes, I believe it was. Enjoy prison, shithead.
