Julian Khater is a beloved son, brother, uncle, Godfather, and patriotic American who is facing an unjust legal battle due to attending the rally in Washington, DC, on January 6th, 2021.
Julian was arrested and detained by the FBI on Sunday, March 14th in connection with the January 6th incidents at The Capitol.
Julian was intercepted by FBI agents at Newark Airport after a "tipster" identified him from videos and photos posted on the Bureau’s website.
The FBI and media are exploiting small fragments of videos of Julian and his co-defendant, George Tanios, without offering the full context. This is being done intentionally to provide a “convenient” storyline that matches their interpretations (or misinterpretations). Julian is a hard-working, family-oriented man, a man from a family of faith, and he strongly supports what he believes in. While his support of President Trump and his right to peacefully demonstrate resulted in Julian attending the rally in DC on January 6th, the tragic events that transpired were NOT what Julian would have imagined or intended.
Julian is now facing serious criminal charges due to the role that the FBI is interpreting him to have. HIS BOND WAS DENIED. HE HAS ZERO CRIMINAL HISTORY OR THREATS OF VIOLENCE. Despite this, he has been held in SOLITARY CONFINEMENT since his arrest on March 14th. How can one still be innocent until proven guilty in a case like this?
The government's case appears to be worrying and disturbing. They are wrongfully convicting him of these charges, plain and simple. Julian is not the man he is being portrayed to be. It feels as if this case, and his detainment, are targeted and very politically motivated.
The mainstream media has already destroyed and all but prosecuted Julian. His family has been left without the option to run their businesses, due to COVID and this disaster all hitting the family at once. Julian’s father and brothers are left with no means or remaining resources to provide for the financial needs of Julian’s legal team and their families’ needs simultaneously.
We are asking for your help in this grave, trying time of need for our family and for Julian. The funds raised from this campaign will be used for Julian’s financial support in his legal battle against this injustice, and any additional donations will go to helping others wrongfully detained as a result of the events of January 6th. Your support is extremely needed and greatly appreciated.
Thank you, and God Bless you and yours,
Elie Khater and Family
