What has happened so far:
On January 13th, 2022, AJ
Fischer arrived at his apartment to find it surrounded by the FBI issuing a
search warrant regarding his presence in Washington D.C. on January 6th, 2021. At that

The allegations against AJ and the labels being
cast onto him are so far from the truth, they are sickening. Others who have
criminal records, others who have no ties to the community, and/or family and
friends to offer collateral were given bond or put on house arrest- but AJ was
