  • Channel 4 News published this video item, entitled “Meet the ‘QAnon shaman’ behind the horns at the Capitol insurrection” – below is their description.

    While there’ll be many people breathing a sigh of relief that Donald Trump has left the White House – millions of his supporters still don’t accept the fact of his defeat, and Americans are now divided not so much by their support for different politicians but more by their belief in polar opposite versions of the truth.

    Jake Angeli was one of the rioters who stormed the Capitol – he’s now facing multiple charges for his role in the attack which left five people dead. Photographs of him, clad in horns and fur was one of the more bizzare and defining images of that day. But what drives someone like him?

    The filmmaker Alex Lockett came across Angeli before the election in his home town of Phoenix Arizona and followed him for several weeks – here’s what happened next – narrated by Krishnan Guru-Murthy.

    Filmed and Directed by Alex Lockett. Executive Producer: Nevine Mabro. Edited by Aggie Liggett. Produced by Amy Howerska.

    Researchers: Talah Kaddourah, Ashley Markle and Isobel Ray. Field assistant: Travis Upright.
