Gohmert greets Jan 6 protestor upon her release from jail, gifts ‘American hero’ flag that flew over Capitol

During the Jan. 6th riot, Dr. Simone Gold entered the U.S. Capitol and proceeded to deliver a speech. Then she left. For this, she was subsequently charged.

In March, she pleaded guilty to remaining in a restricted building or grounds, a class A misdemeanor. Three months later, an Obama-appointed judge sentenced to her 60 days in jail, in addition to 12 months of supervised release. He also ordered her to pay a $9,500 fine.

Now fast-forward to Friday, Sept. 9th, when Gold finally made her way out of jail, only to be greeted by Rep. Louie Gohmert, who’d traveled all the way to the jail to welcome her back to society and hand her a special gift.


“Rep. Louie Gohmert (TX-01) joined Dr. Simone Gold today as she was released from federal prison after she was unjustly prosecuted by the Biden Administration’s Department of Justice,” according to a press release from the congressman’s office.

He also presented her with a flag which was flown over the U.S. Capitol to celebrate her invaluable work and contributions to public health, medical freedom and our God-given constitutional rights.”

In a statement, the congressman praised Gold for all she’s done. As previously reported, she’s the founder of America’s Frontline Doctors, a grassroots, Tea Party Patriots-linked group that was launched during the COVID pandemic to fight back against COVID diktats and also offer work to doctors who were being ostracized for their beliefs.

“Dr. Gold is a patriot and an American hero. In the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic, she exposed the world to life-saving early treatment options that undoubtedly saved many lives. Tragically, her sound medical advice was viciously attacked and suppressed by a corrupt media captured by pharmaceutical companies with a clear financial agenda,” Gohmert said.

“After having her name and reputation shamefully dragged through the mud, the Biden administration’s DOJ threw her in prison for peacefully walking into the U.S. Capitol on January 6 and delivering a speech. Dr. Gold is the definition of what a political prisoner looks like—something I never thought I’d see here in the United States of America.”

He concluded, “God Bless Dr. Gold. History will not look kindly upon those who persecuted—and prosecuted—doctors who spoke out against the COVID lockdown, mask and vaccine mandates.”

Gold has long maintained that she’s the the victim of a “political prosecution.” This unfortunately wound up hurting her in court.

“Sitting here today, I don’t think you have truly accepted responsibility,” U.S. District Court Judge Christopher R. Cooper said during her sentencing in June, as reported by MedPage Today.

“Your organization has used your notoriety to raise money to garner support for you in connection with the sentencing and for its general operations by mischaracterizing what this proceeding is all about … telling your supporters that this is a political prosecution of a law-abiding physician that’s designed to threaten and intimidate any American who dares to exercise their First Amendment rights.”

The judge also pushed back on Gold’s claim that she’d been a peaceful bystander versus a violent rioter.

“It is obvious from the video that we watched today that you were part of an angry and aggressive, I would say mob, crowd of people intent on getting past law enforcement and entering the East Rotunda through those doors. Regardless of how the door got opened, the police were obviously trying to keep people out,” he said.

Gold obviously refutes this characterization, as do her supporters, including Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene:
