Navy Contractor Charged In Capitol Riot Reportedly Told Coworkers 'Hitler Should Have Finished The Job'

U.S. Federal Court

Timothy Hale-Cusanelli is among the latest arrests in the storming of the Capitol on January 6, 2021.

Unlike some of the other insurrectionists, Hale-Cusanelli's list of prior offenses was extensive. He was easily recognized during the storming of the Capitol due to his Hitler-esque mustache.

To make matters worse, Hale-Cusanelli—an Army reservist—worked as a security contractor at the New Jersey Naval Weapons Station which gave him access to privileged information, including information that would have been useful to someone wishing to infiltrate a top-security building.

Since he was recognized in insurrection footage, 44 of Hale-Cusanelli's coworkers and other connections have come forward with information about a man they've deemed sexist, racist, antisemitic and a White supremacist.

Part of his profile from the court motion was released to the public:

"[Timothy Hale-Cusanelli is an] extremist with radical views pertaining to the Jewish people, minorities, and women."

Particularly shocking was Hale-Cusanelli's alleged statement to a coworker.

He said:

"[Adolf Hitler] should have finished the job [during the Holocaust]."

Another coworker confirmed Hale-Cusanelli:

"...constantly [denigrated Jewish people]."

Hale-Cusanelli was also regularly reprimanded for trimming his facial hair into a "Hitler mustache" while present at work. It was also widely recognized he was outspoken about his racist and sexist views, and he was open to voicing them and discussing them with coworkers, even when someone was uncomfortable or when he was ordered to stop.

He has openly admitted to assisting in the storming of the Capitol and that he was there to prevent then President-elect Joe Biden from gaining the Oval Office.

But it has not been released to the public if he used his access to government security information to help in the riot, the way it was discovered some insurrectionists were using blueprints to access other areas of the building.

The court also attempted to keep Hale-Cusanelli in jail without bail in-between court hearings because of his voiced interest in engaging in a second American Civil War.

Following the pattern of so many other insurrectionists, Hale-Cusanelli explained:

"[I was just] following the entreaties of then-Commander-in-Chief [Donald Trump]."

Twitter at this point clearly has heard more than enough about the performances of Trump supoorting Capitol insurrectionists and wants to see action.





Based on his comments in court, as well as his behavior at work when told to stop making bigoted remarks, we probably haven't seen the last of Timothy Hale-Cusanelli or his mustache.
