WASHINGTON — A Trump supporter who was filming with a GoPro strapped to his helmet when he jumped through a broken window to storm the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6 was sentenced to 9 months in prison on Tuesday.

Anthony Puma, a Michigan resident, pleaded guilty in August, admitting that, with his GoPro strapped to his head and recording, he bragged about scaling a Capitol wall before jumping through a broken window. He ended up in Sen. Jeff Merkley’s Senate hideaway office, where rioters were smoking marijuana.

The Justice Department sought 18 months in federal prison and pointed to his preplanning to storm the Capitol.


“On the 6th when we are all there in the capital and he is givin his second term the people will see. Then you never know we might have to start killing some commie b——-. #stopthesteal,” Puma wrote on Facebook in December 2020.

The day before, on On Jan. 5, 2021, he wrote, “War is coming,” and later asked “What time do we storm the House of Representatives?”

On Jan. 6, Puma jumped through a broken window at the capital, declaring, “There you go. Right through the f—— window. That’s how we do it.”

He went on to post, “Hopefully we are storming the House of Representatives tomorrow at 100pm.”

Puma’s lawyers argued against further punishment, saying he was sorry.

“Despite Mr. Puma’s disrespectful and thoughtless conduct on January 6, 2021, the fact remains that he was never violent, never destroyed property and did not bring weapons or act in concert with extremist groups,” his lawyers argued.

He feels tricked and manipulated” by political leaders, the attorney said. “We can trust that Mr. Puma is really sorry.”
