First: the January 6 Capitol riot was absolutely unacceptable and anyone who engaged in violence should be punished. I am in no way endorsing the riot.

CNN has an article pointing out that the rioters went to Olive Garden for dinner and spent $400 after the riot. The article implies that where they went for dinner, and how much they spent, is relevant to their trial.

Why does it matter where they go for dinner and how much they spend? What they did at the Capitol was both illegal and immoral, but going to Olive Garden is neither.
