Kokesh calls the charges “political persecution.”
According to WashingtonPost:
“Violence itself is the greatest violation of freedom,” Kokesh told the judge. “I’m the opposite of dangerous.”
He added later: “I apologize to the commonwealth of Virginia and citizens of Herndon. This situation will never happen again.”
Fairfax County prosecutor Matthew Kapuscinski said, “This is not a case of political persecution or civil disobedience, It’s reckless and irresponsible.”
Kokesh recently appeared on The Rundown Live to talk about his book Freedom! and his 2020 Presidential run.
