Jacob Anthony Chansley is allegedly the man who was photographed wearing horns in the Senate.

A prominent supporter of QAnon’s unproven conspiracy theories has been indicted for his involvement in the Washington Capitol riots.

Jacob Anthony Chansley, known as Jake Angeli, is in custody and faces several charges, including trespassing and disorderly conduct.

Chansley, who calls himself the shaman of QAnon, is supposedly the man photographed with the face painted and dressed in animal skin and horns inside the Congress building this Wednesday.

US President Donald Trump is facing his second impeachment trial, or removal, for his role in the incidents. In the first, the Republican majority in the Senate voted against, which allowed him to remain in office.
