A Donald Trump supporter thrown in prison following January 6th was reportedly denied cancer treatment for eight months.
“Christopher Worrell, who pled not guilty to six charges brought down on him by the DOJ for his participation in the J6 protest, claims his cancer went from stage 1 to stage 3 during his time in prison,” National File reports.
From National File:
Worrell’s fiancee, Trish Priller, appeared on Fox News’ Tucker Carlson Tonight show to discuss the DOJ’s shocking treatment of Mr. Worrell.
Priller claims Worrell was refused access to medication prescribed to treat his cancer, which is a form of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.
Worrell was also not allowed to see an oncologist. Eventually, Worrell was released from prison after a U.S. Marshall’s report found him to be living in unacceptable conditions which failed to “meet the minimum standards of confinement.”
In October, responding to the US Marshall’s report, US District Judge Royce Lamberth ordered the DC jail warden and director of the DC Department of Corrections in contempt of court and made a call for a DOJ investigation into whether Worrell’s civil rights were violated.
“I find that the civil rights of the defendant have been abused. I don’t know if it’s because he’s a January 6th defendant or not, but I find this matter should be referred to the attorney general of the United States for a civil rights investigation into whether the D.C. Department of Corrections is violating the civil rights of January 6th defendants … in this and maybe other cases,” Judge Lamberth ruled.
“He’s doing okay since he’s been home. He’s had some major medical issues. He’s had five rounds of chemotherapy. He’s had major oral surgery, which he’s still recovering from,” Priller explained.
The New York Post added:
She told host Tucker Carlson her fiancé was treated the way he was because the “DC gulag” wanted to send a message to other Jan. 6 defendants.
“They’re all being treated that way. Their food is being poisoned. Their recreation time is taken away from them,” Priller said. “They’re in solitary confinement. They’re just denied all kinds of basic human rights.”
Carlson asked her if any politicians came to her aid during the process. “They’re ignoring us,” she responded.
“Our First Amendment rights are definitely under attack. We definitely need help. The more people we can get on our side, the better. We need lawyers,” she added.
