NEW: Jan 6 defendant Joe Hutchinson has asked court for permission to travel to Florida for Thanksgiving for "celebration" w/ family

Noting this request, because Hutchinson is accused of assaulting police w/ co-defendant Jonathan Pollock on Jan 6 & Pollock is still a wanted man
In fact, Joe Hutchinson is specifically seeking permission to travel to Lakeland, Florida for Thanksgiving celebration

That's where fugitive (and co-defendant) Jonathan Pollock had resided

Note this FBI video:
Hutchinson is on home detention.

Feds are expressing concern about Hutchinson returning to area where co-defendants reside(d)

Judge is hearing arguments on this right now
Judge will allow Hutchinson to make trip for Thanksgiving to Florida.... and won't order a prohibition on Hutchinson contacting co-defendants while there

(Keeping in mind, one of his co-defendants in Florida is a *fugitive* right now)

Abual’s defense lawyer began argument for leniency saying: My client didn’t want to start a Civil War or be part of a Civil War.
Well this is a first. Among the statements seeking leniency, defense says Abual has been stressed and grinding her teeth … and had to go see a dentist.

I interviewed Barnett recently ===>
Prosecutors are updating judge on case. They're running through the complications they face in many Jan 6 cases... there's an avalanche of evidence to prepare for court & defense. Unprecedented amount of evidence... feds hope to be ready with it by end of 2021
Feds want another 60 days to prepare this case

The goalposts keep moving in Jan 6 prosecutions. The feds just can't seem to get atop the mountain of evidence

Chansley: "I was wrong for entering the Capitol. I have no excuse. No excuses whatsoever. My behavior was indefensible. Number two: I may be guilty of this crime. But I'm not a dangerous criminal.. I'm not an Insurrectionist.. I'm a good man who broke the law"
