EXCLUSIVE: No Longer Innocent Until Convicted, J6 Political Prisoner Peter Stager Shares Experience in Jail Over 600 Days in Letter to Gateway Pundit – Please Donate Below

The DC Department of Corrections continues to exploit the Covid pandemic as a means to discriminate against J6 defendants, Peter Stager, an Arkansas man who has been detained in the DC jail for over 600 days, explains in a letter provided exclusively to The Gateway Pundit.

Correction officers are using Covid as an excuse to withhold political prisoners from access to basic necessities and bar inmates incarcerated for protesting the stolen 2020 election from visitation rights, Stager notes.

Stager was apprehended on January 14, 2021 for allegedly “striking a Capitol Police Officer with an American flag,” the American Gulag reports. “The officer was belly down, and ‘Police’ was clearly visible on the back of the officer. Please keep in mind that in the United States, every citizen charged with a crime is presumed innocent until proven guilty.”

The 43-year-old Arkansas man is charged with eight criminal counts, including assaulting a police officer with a dangerous weapon, civil disorder, obstruction of an official proceeding and aiding and abetting.

Stager, a father of two, has been “denied bail, denied his basic human rights, and access to his attorney with the exception of status hearings where he has not been able to speak for himself,” his wife, Samantha Littell, notes on GiveSendGo, the crowdfunding platform she is using to raise fund to cover her husband’s legal fees.

Unlike the J6 political hostages, inmates facing murder charges are “afforded bond,” Stager contends.


My name is Peter F. Stager and I have live in Central Arkansas most of my life. I am married to my best friend and the love of my life for over 19 years. Together, my love and I have two children.

Since my detainment of over 600 days in multiple states and facilities, we have been deprived and denied access to each other. We have not hugged, kissed, smelled or even laid eyes on each other during this nightmare.

My detainment is the first time our family hasn’t been together for birthdays. In our household, you birthday is the most important day to be together as a family.

The damage caused to our loved one is due to bad policy. The Covid restrictions have been lifted and we are still denied visitation in person. All we are asking for is computer visitation like the other inmates in the DC jail and jails across the country.

Always remember, we are innocent men who haven’t ever been convicted. We are not being held on gun crimes or murder charges. Yet, if we were, chances are we would be afforded bond.

At a bare minimum, we would have visitation in person or computer visitation.

Outside of this situation this persecution would not exist if we were not J6 defendants.

God bless the American people and God bless America.

Nancy Pelosi’s Political Prisoner #376784

An estimated six hundred men and women have been apprehended by the Federal Bureau of Investigations for protesting the stolen election on Capitol Hill on January 6 and are suffering horribly at the hands of our corrupted government.

Most of Joe Biden’s political prisoners are being denied due process, held without bail, have yet to be convicted of a crime and are languish in solitary confinement as they lose their livelihoods waiting month after month for a crooked judge and jury in Washington DC to begin to adjudicate their case.

“Peter is a loving father to two beautiful well-rounded children, a supportive husband, and a loyal friend,” Littrell explains. “The stress and heartache that not only Peter’s kids and wife, but all the Political Prisoners’ families are going through I would not wish on anyone. I am asking for your prayers, love, and support for our loved ones and their families. “
