He was among the protesters who stormed the US Capitol in Washington DC on January 6.
Angeli was at the front of a group of agitators who faced off with DC cops who desperately tried in vain to protect the establishment.
He made his way into the Senate chamber where he was seen standing behind the dais in the Senate chamber where just moments earlier Vice President Mike Pence and Nancy Pelosi had been.
The protest was a deliberate breach to interrupt Congress while it was in the process of counting state electoral votes to officially confirm President-elect Joe Biden’s 2020 election victory.
Some Republicans have wrongly claimed Angeli is a member of the far-left group Antifa.
What conspiracy theories does Jake Angeli believe in?
QAnon conspiracy theorists believe Donald Trump is in a secret war against elite Satan-worshipping paedophiles in government, business and the media who will one day be arrested and executed.
Angeli and others dressed variously as frontiersmen, bandits, soldiers or just wore MAGA hats when they overwhelmed police and forced their way into the Capitol.
9:32 am – myself + other journalists here are being harassed for wearing masks.
One man says: “It’s submission, it’s muzzling yourself, it looks weak – especially for men.”
We’re being accused of fear-mongering, not knowing anything + being “pieces of shit.”

It was a deliberate breach to interrupt Congress while it was in the process of counting state electoral votes to officially confirm President-elect Joe Biden’s election victory.
Some Republicans have erroneously claimed the protesters, and Angeli in particular, are members of the far left group Antifa.
Angeli, a regular protester outside his home state capitol in Phoenix, gave an interview to Arizona Central last year blaming the media for criticizing Trump and inflating the dangers of coronavirus.
“I think it’s important that the president of the United States knows… that there’s good patriotic Americans who see things he’s going through,” Angeli told the newspaper.
“And are willing to stand up and say ‘Hey man, I see what you’re going through and I salute you, thank you for doing your job’.”
Angeli said there had been “a lot of hysteria… that was completely unnecessary” about the world-beating number of US coronavirus cases.
Angeli turns up regularly in costume at pro-Trump events, baring his tattoos which include depictions of the president’s Mexico border wall, and sometimes carrying a sign saying “Q Sent Me”.
He has shouted at passers-by “You all know who Q is?” and explained Q “was a government agent who wanted to ‘take the country back’ from paedophiles and globalists.”
On a since deleted performance profile of Angeli on backstage.com, he is described as skilled in singing, screenwriting, public speaking and accents.
Balding and bearded, he was photographed against a backdrop of First Nations objects such as a dreamcatcher, hatchet and a drum.
Angeli’s appearance in his horned hat had people dubbing him Jamiroquai, for the English funk band lead singer Jay Kay whose array of elaborate hats include one of a similar shape.
On one of Angeli’s Facebook pages, he is pictured shaking hands with former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani, during a visit by the President’s personal lawyer to Arizona.
Angeli has captioned the image. “Got to shake Rudy’s hand… what an honor it is to be present.
“Hold the line patriots! USA will prevail, we will stop the steal! Cuz as always God wins!”
Hours before the violence at the Capitol in which a pro-Trump supporter was fatally shot, Giuliani encouraged supporters to pursue a “trial by combat”.
Jake, who previously identified as a singer and actor, claims he is able to “see into these other higher dimensions that these entities – these pedophiles, these rapists, these really high up people.”
A filmed interview has emerged of the tattooed oddball, who has gained a following spouting QAnon conspiracy theory online.
Jake said: “As a shaman, I am like a multi-dimensional or hyper dimensional being, ok.”
He claims he is able to “see into these other higher dimensions that these entities – these pedophiles, these rapists, these really high up people.
He added: “And most people can’t see that because the third eye ain’t open.”

Among his bonkers claims, he said the world elites have underground bases where they are developing “anti-gravity technology” and “infinite energy.”
In the 10 minute rant, in which his views are never questioned, he also said the elites, including the “banking cartels”, are involved in “cloning and all sorts of crazy stuff” and want to create a “one world government.”
He said Trump is like the “good cop in this global organization” who is personally responsible for the arrests of Harvey Weinstein and the leaking of Hillary Clinton’s campaign emails.
