The “Times of Israel” website, citing “Gothamist,” revealed that “among the rioters who stormed the Capitol on Wednesday, was the son of a judge in New York and a former president of the National Council of Young Israel.”
“The Times of Israel” reported that Aaron Mostofsky, who is the son of a Kings County High Court judge Stephen Shlomo Mostovsky, entered the Capitol, wearing a fur uniform, bulletproof vest, and carrying a riot shield, was found, according to To “Gothamist,” and Aaron Mostovsky’s father was a former chairman of the National Council of Young Israel, an Orthodox Jewish organization that had expressed vocal support for the US President, Donald Trump.
Mostowski was also photographed several times on Wednesday, alongside Jake Angeli, a QAnon supporter, who wore a fur hat with two horns, but it is unclear whether the two coordinated their furry theme, according to the site.
Aaron Mostofsky told “The New York Post” that he wanted to “express his opinion as a free American,” noting that “this election was stolen from President Trump.”
He added, “We have been cheated. I don’t think only 75 million people voted for Trump, I think the number is close to 85 million.”
