A Trump supporter thrown in prison following the January 6th protest 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.
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.
During Worrell’s time in prison, his cancer progressed from Stage 1 to Stage 3.
Worrell’s fiancee told Tucker Carlson Worrell and other January 6th defendants are being “denied all kinds of basic human rights” while locked up in the “D.C. gulag.”
“They’re all being treated that way. Their food is being poisoned. Their recreation time is taken away from them. They’re in solitary confinement. They’re just denied all kinds of basic human rights,” Priller explained.
Priller told Carlson she reached out to politicians for support but they ignored her.
“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,” Priller added.
