 Elliot Hughes reports Two more Wisconsin men — one of them a National Guard member — charged with entering U.S. Capitol during Jan. 6 riot:

Two more Wisconsin men — one of them a member of the Wisconsin Army National Guard — were charged Monday in the Jan. 6 insurrection at the U.S. Capitol.

According to federal court documents, the men drove from the Madison area to Washington in January and entered the U.S. Capitol during the storming of the building.

Brandon Nelson and Abram Markofski, the Guard member, both admitted entering the building after attending then-President Donald Trump’s rally south of the White House earlier in the day, according to a criminal complaint.

The two have been charged with entering a restricted building, disorderly conduct in a restricted building, violent entry, and parading or demonstrating in a Capitol building.

They are at least the fourth and fifth Wisconsin residents — among more than 400 nationwide — charged in connection with the Jan. 6 raid on the Capitol.

 Haley BeMiller reports Radisson gunman threatened former boss before deadly shooting but allowed by court to possess firearms:

ASHWAUBENON – A gunman who killed two people and injured a third at Duck Creek Kitchen + Bar was under a restraining order, but still allowed to possess firearms, after he threatened his former boss.

Brown County Sheriff Todd Delain said Monday that Bruce K. Pofahl shot and killed Ian J. Simpson, 32, and Jacob T. Bartel, 35, and seriously injured 28-year-old Danny Mulligan in an attack Saturday that began at the restaurant inside the Radisson Hotel & Conference Center. The hotel is attached to the Oneida Casino in Ashwaubenon.

Police shot and killed the 62-year-old gunman outside the building.

Pofahl was fired from his job as the restaurant’s food and beverage manager earlier this year, Delain said. He was not allowed to be on the property.

 Tom Humburger reports U.S. trustee opposes NRA bankruptcy petition in blow to gun rights group:

The recommendation bolstered the arguments of New York Attorney General Letitia James (D), whose office has fought the NRA’s attempts to relocate from New York to Texas, and came after senior NRA executives acknowledged in court testimony that they received lavish perks.

Linda Lambert, a lawyer with the U.S. trustee’s office — which participates in bankruptcy cases to protect taxpayer interests and enforce bankruptcy laws — told the court that the evidence presented in the hearing showed that the nonprofit organization lacked proper oversight and that personal expenses were masked as business costs.

Adam Levitin, a bankruptcy expert at the Georgetown University Law Center, said the position of the trustee — a Justice Department official who typically remains neutral in a bankruptcy proceeding — does not bode well for the NRA.

“I don’t see how the NRA pulls off a win here,” he said, adding: “I think it’s pretty clear that the NRA loses. The real question is what the remedy will be.”
