On January 6th my brother Isaac Yoder along with other family members traveled to Washington DC to peacefully protest what we did then and still do believe to be a stolen election. 
Isaac was dressed as the most famous of our patriots, George Washington, and carrying our flag on a staff (dressing in similar costume is something Isaac has enjoyed doing for years for many occasions). After listening to Trump's speech, at some point Isaac walked over to the Capitol building. There were many police there and people were walking in and out of the Capitol. At no time was he told not to enter. At some point Isaac went inside the Capitol, he chatted with the policemen and followed directions as to where he could or could not go. He was inside the
Capitol possibly eighteen minutes, and then walked back out of the building. Because of his noticeable costume, he was stopped by others to take pictures with him, which he obligingly allowed.
Now, he is being harassed, bullied, and intimidated. He is being advised by the FBI that while he may have rights, if he invokes them the FBI will respond in kind with harsher tactics. He is quickly incurring significant financial debt from the efforts required to defend himself. Isaac has a wife and three small children. 
Many false articles have been put out about Isaac, including articles that tell names and ages of his children and showing pictures of them. They have put his phone number and link to his business out for everyone to see in what seems to be an attempt to destroy his business. While those who know him are supportive and know him to be patriotic and peaceful, he has recieved a lot of hate calls and e-mails from those who have read many of these slanderous reports.
Just last week Isaac was told to appear in court in Springfield, MO where he was detained for several hours and put in handcuffs and chains before being released on conditions.
While we are being told there will be a number of hearings coming up soon the real trial may not take place until next year.
Isaac has commited no crime to receive this treatment. If this and many other cases against innocent people who were in DC on Jan are allowed to go forward, the government will not stop there. Our freedoms are being taken away. 
Thank you so much for your prayers and gifts.
