We first published a heartbreaking letter from Political Prisoner Jonathan Mellis last September. Mellis had sent us a detailed letter from solitary confinement aka “The Hole” documenting his painful experience at DC Gitmo. Mellis’ letter was the first of its kind published from a documented American political prisoner to the public.
Please help Jonathan Mellis here.

Since then Mellis has helped his fellow inmates at DC Gitmo carefully write their own letters/testimonies and get them to us at The Gateway Pundit and our readers. It has become incredibly important to these men and women to get their stories out there and plead with the world not to forget them. We share these stories that you won’t find find anywhere else. Because of the support of their fellow American citizens, some of these men have been able to raise the funds to obtain private legal counsel and fire their crazy leftist public defenders.

We regularly publish these letters for their historical value and to document the torture and unjust treatment these men are suffering under The Biden Regime. Their constitutional rights of due process and equal justice under the law have been desecrated by The Department of Injustice and it is of vital importance that other Americans are aware of what is happening.

Help Jonathan Mellis afford a trail attorney and send prayers here.

Please see Jonathan’s touching letter thanking The Gateway Pundit readers below.

Dear Gateway Pundit Readers,

In late January 2022 I had been locked up almost a full year. I was sitting in my cell on solitary confinement 22 hours per day. Being a Jan 6 detainee in the DC jail all I know is that the mainstream media lies about me and smears my character. The outside world is brainwashed to hate me and the jail administration is happy to torture me in lonely, heartless, and violent ways.

It was at this desperate and spiritually exhausted moment in my life that I started receiving thousands and thousands of Christmas cards and letters postmarked from late December. I read EVERY ONE, but I can’t read them fast enough. I’m drowning in love and prayers. Lol. Thanks to Jim Hoft and the amazing Gateway Pundit readers I have been shaken with love. Jim Hoft is a great Patriot. I admire him and I admire his dedication to truth and light. It has been one of the great honors of my life to work with Jim, Cara Castronuova, and the inspirational Kelly Wilde in getting the Jan 6ers stories published. By allowing us to get the Jan 6ers letters to the public and allowing the great readers of Gateway Pundit to help support our legal funds, Jim has given Americans all over the country hope in the goodness of our citizens. Jim Hoft is a great man. I look forward to one day repaying his kindness.

We have all heard about the Jan 6er, Matthew Perna, who tragically committed suicide recently. This hurts our Patriot brothers very much. It is a wake up call to all of us. Personally it wakes me up to the sad realization that hopelessness and desperation are ever present and powerful. Matthew Perna was a good, decent man. He was a positive and productive American. He helped people all over the world. But the mainstream media and the DOJ have NO MERCY for Trump supporters. They destroyed him with lies and hatred. Now he is dead and they still don’t care. Good Americans do care. I pray for him and his family. #IamMatthew

I pray that you all will remember Matthew Perna, just as you remember us political prisoners. Most of us are just regular guys caught up in something bigger than ourselves. We stand against bigotry and hatred, and we love our neighbors. I pray that our righteous movement continues to root out evil and corruption in every corner. We must always be able to hold our head high knowing that truth and light is on our side, but it takes courage.

In the immortal words of Thomas Paine, “It is the duty of every man, as far as his ability extends, to detect and expose delusion and error. But nature has not given to everyone a talent for the purpose; and among those whom such a talent is given, there is often a want of disposition, or of the courage to do it.”

God bless you Jim and God bless the Gateway Pundit readers. Thank you for all the love and support. Thank you for giving me strength. Thank you for not forgetting us. You have touched my heart and soul. I am praying for America every day. There is still hope with good Americans like you out there.

Strength and Honor,
Jon Gennaro Mellis
Prisoner #376907
