Jon Schaffer wanted by police for storming US Capitol

Schaffer was photographed among the rioters who breached security at the Capitol and, in one image captured by AFP’s Roberto Schmidt, appeared to be wildly gesticulating in the middle of the chaotic scenes.

Now, he has appeared on a PowerPoint presentation from the Metropolitan Police in D.C., which documents people sought after for “unrest-related offenses” and the unlawful entry of Capitol grounds.

Schaffer’s involvement in the demonstration comes shortly after he attended a D.C. Trump rally in November to protest against the election results.

“They will go down. They’re messing with the wrong people, believe me,” he told the German daily newspaper, Die Welt.

What we know so far about Jon Schaffer

Schaffer previously attracted controversy in July when he claimed that Covid-19 is “a psychological warfare campaign on the people more than it is a serious pandemic”.

He told MetalSucks: “I think there’s a lot more going on than meets the eye here — in fact, I know there is. Legitimate doctors and scientists are being censored and banned on YouTube constantly. It’s unbelievable levels of fraud.”

Schaffer founded Iced Earth in 1984 and has remained the group’s only constant member throughout, releasing 12 albums with the metal band.
