Dallas, January 25, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – STATEMENT ON GARRET MILLER
Clinton Broden, partner in the law firm Broden & Mickelsen, LLP and counsel for Garret Miller, issues the following statement on behalf of Mr. Miller:
Let me start by saying that I was in Washington DC on January 6, 2021 believing I was following former President Trump’s orders and he was my President and the Commander in Chief. His testimony also led me to believe that his election was stolen. Even so, I fully acknowledge that Joe Biden is now the President of the United States and that the elections are over. Donald Trump is no longer president and I have no reason to continue following his example.
Second, while I never intended to harm Congressman Ocasio-Cortez or harm members of the Capitol Police, I recognize that my social media posts were completely inappropriate. They were made at a time when Donald Trump made me believe that an American election was stolen. I would like to publicly apologize to Congressman Ocasio-Cortez and the Capitol Police officers. I have always supported law enforcement and am ashamed of my comments.
Third, while this does not excuse my actions on Jan. 6, I would like to reiterate that I was not armed when I entered the Capitol and stayed in the Capitol rotunda. I also left Washington and returned to Texas immediately after President Trump asked us to go home.
Until recently, I was really never very interested in or preoccupied with politics. Still, I was really impressed by what Donald Trump had said about the election and I felt I had to support him. Even so, I realize that I am solely responsible for my actions and that there are no excuses for what I did.
I come from a good and supportive family. My parents and brothers don’t deserve the pain I caused them. I take full responsibility for my actions and am ready to testify at any trial or congressional procedure.
