Official Civil Defense Fund For George Tanios J6

Campaign Created by: George Tanios

The funds from this campaign will be received by George Tanios.

Raised: USD $ 4,821

My name is George Tanios and I am a January 6 defendant. I was arrested on March 14, 2021 and spent 5 months in jail. I was fortunate enough to win an appeal in front of the D. C. Court of Appeals and secure my release. All 3 appellate judges ruled in my favor stating that trial judges "clearly ruled in error" by keeping me detained. 2 trial court judges left me in jail, when I should have only been in there for a week or two max. (Judge Alto of WV, Judge Thomas Hogan of D.C.) Due to this, we were forced to close our restaurant and absorb bills on top of bills. After 17 years in Morgantown serving college students and the community until 3 am, our business was lost basically over night. I can't even count the hours of research and development, blood, sweat and tears went into it. 

After spending 3 months on home confinement and 12 months on curfew, I finally had my sentencing on January 27, 2023. The judge sentenced me to time served, 1 year probation and 100 hours community service. I took the plea deal of two misdemeanors to avoid the lengthy court battle with a D. C. judge and a D.C. jury. 

The United States Government initially charged me with 10 Felonies! The DOJ pieced together a story and made me and my co-defendant out to be cop killers. After denying several plea deals, they dropped all the felony charges and added two misdemeanors and offered me a deal that I just couldn't refuse in my situation. With 3 children and another on the way, I had to do what was best for my family.  

This saga has had many twists and turns for me, and I was silly to think this was almost over. On January 5th, I was served with a civil suit for 10 million dollars with my co-defendants President Donald Trump and Julian Khater. The Sicknick Family is seeking 10 Million Dollars from each of us for the wrongful death of Officer Brian Sicknick.  

May Brian Rest In Peace, but we had nothing to do with his death. He died of Natural Causes the next day. I didn't even see him or come within 100 feet of him. All this will come out in discovery and I look forward to that.

Here is President Donald J. Trump's latest statement on January 6th.

Statement from President Donald J. Trump

This GiveSendGo has been set up to help me pay for this lengthy legal battle that could cost me upwards of $80,000+. A team of lawyers have reached out to help and they are ready to fight.

I am not here to grift and live off of donations. I have a steady income that covers bills and basic expenses but I need help with these legal fees. Several organizations are out there to help with criminal cases, and they have their hands full helping nearly 1200+ families with many more to come. Crazy times. This is the first major civil suit arising out of January 6th.

Please, if you can afford to chip in and help me, it would be greatly appreciated. If you cannot, please just keep my family and I in your prayers. Follow along as I will post updates as they come in.

God Bless you all!

Hi everyone,

Thank you so much for your help and prayers. After 2 years of staying silent, I can no longer do that. The silence is working against me and allowing the negative J6 narrative to continue on with the lies and fabrications against me and the rest of my brother and sisters caught up in this.  

I have not hired my attorneys yet and the clock is ticking on me.  If I can't afford to hire them by the time a response is sent in, judgement will be ruled against me I suppose.  I am not really sure what the process is in that case. 

If you haven't seen the Tucker Carlson show the past two nights please do so.  Monday 3/6 & Tuesday 3/7

Basically with just a few seconds of video, it breaks the left's narrative easily.  With just a small clip of Officer Brian Sicknick walking around and doing his job, long after the "incident", proves that this now civil case against President Donald Trump, Julian Khater and I should be tossed out on sight.  Will It?  I doubt it.

How many more hours of footage is there? Where is it?  Why isn't it all released to the public for them to filter through it and make their own decisions.

I just updated the bio on this givesendgo.  It is basically an update.  This is a legal fund to help me fight these dirty D.C. Lawyers who will do anything to go after President Donald Trump.  

President Donald Trump, Julian Khater and I are now being sued for $10 Million Each for the wrongful death of Officer Brian Sicknick.  You can search several articles and videos on it but here are a few.

I honestly still can't believe this is all happening to me but it is.  God will guide me through as always. 

God Bless you all.

Hello Everyone. 

It has been some time since an update.  That is because every word I say will and can be used against me in a court of law.  This Friday, January 27th is my sentencing hearing.  With advice from my legal team and family, I agreed to pleading to 2 Misdemeanors.  DOJ asked for time served and a $500 fine.  It is still in the Judges hands and I could face a maximum of 1 year (7 Months additional) in jail for these two charges.  The DOJ dropped 10 Felonies and added the two misdemeanors.  Seems like they wanted to avoid a trial.  I will get into the more one day.  

On January 5th I was made aware of a Civil Suit being brought against President Donald Trump and Julian Khater and I.  We are being sued for wrongful death of a police officer.  10 Million Each but don't worry, the money is going to go to charity. 

Can't make this stuff up and everyday has been a new twist and turn in this saga.  Simply do a search with my name and it will come up. 

At the end of the day, God controls everything and my life is in his hands.  

God Bless,

Well, the unexpected happened yesterday I pled to 2 misdemeanor charges which were not on my list until yesterday morning.  Per attorney's advice and praying on it, we moved forward to help resolve this issue and get my life moving forward.  

I have 4 months to go until the sentencing date on December 6th. The Judge can still put me back in prison for up to an additional 6 months.  That is all I can really say for now but I would like to attach some favorable news articles here to share with you.

Thank you all for your support and prayers.  

God Bless.

Thank you for the support and prayers.  Every little bit is helping seriously.

Today we had a status hearing and now trial has been pushed back to October.  That would put me at 1.5 years from my arrest date to see my day in court.  I look forward to that day.

I wanted to share this article that came out last week.  Please read it when you have a moment.

Thank you and stay blessed.
