In this THREAD you'll see video of agents provocateur smashing windows, holding the Columbus Doors open with a pole, and PUSHING protestors inside

But what happened AFTER #January6th is even more shocking. 1/n…
If not for @elonmusk you would not know this.


The two men seen violently assaulting the Capitol on #January6th in the video above are but two of ONE HUNDRED TWENTY individuals at the forefront of the violence.

Yeah, we found more.


There were THOUSANDS of people in and around the Capitol on #January6th.

What makes these guys so special?

What makes these 120+ #insurrectionist unique is that the FBI has chosen not to include their images among the others being sought on the #J6 "Most Wanted" list

10 selected agencies— including the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Office of Intelligence and Analysis who have lead roles in countering domestic terrorism and violent extremism—were aware of open-source data about planned
events on January 6, and seven were aware of potential violence planned for that day.
Seven of the 10 agencies developed 38 election-related threat products based partly on open source data to inform security planning (see fig.). Twenty-six of those were about planned events for January 6. Of those, the FBI prepared one and DHS prepared two threat products.

🧵NEW from me: Tom Fitton, the far-right fake lawyer who got Trump into legal jeopardy with NARA previously worked secretly with Trump to falsely declare victory in 2020 before a single vote had been counted… #January6thCommitteeHearings
Trump has had difficulty hiring good lawyers for some time because of his record of urging attorneys to commit crimes, his refusal to heed their advice, and the fact that he doesn't pay bills.

Because of that, he has leaned heavily on Fitton, someone who has never been a lawyer.
Like many people who became prominent Trump advisers, Fitton had existed on the margins of Republican politics, regarded by party elites as cranks who shook down the rubes.

As Trump sought to illegally remain in office, most of his legal & campaign staff told him to stop.

Das #January6thHearing soll mindestens Geschichte schreiben. Beim heutigen "Finale" soll vor den #MidTerms einmal mehr ein #Trump angelasteter Plan entlarvt werden. Dazu gehören Einflussnahme und Druck auf Pence, das Justizministerium und Wahlleiter, sowie das Aufhetzen des Mobs. Image
Liz Cheney sagt, es sei viel passiert, seit man mit dem U-Ausschuss begonnen habe. Das stimmt auch für sie, die von ihrer Partei gestürzt wurde. Sie kann nicht mehr für den Kongress antreten. Sollte Trump wieder antreten, will sie die GOP verlassen. #January6thCommitteeHearings Image

#EspionageAct [doesn’t] mention classification at all. It talks about a specific type of information: national defense… The real question is, why would Trump WANT to declassify secrets that could harm the U.S.?”

I have insider info I believe relevant to the #January6thCommitteeHearings. Pls share

Who is this man telling Alex, "it's time to storm the Capitol?" (00:23) Who is communicating w him via headphones?
Original and slowed down clip of security guard speaking to Alex Jones: It sounds like he could be saying, "It's time to storm the Capitol... They need us backstage." Any audio engineers out there who can learn this up?

.@Liz_Cheney reveals at end of #Jan6thHearings #Trump called a #Jan6thCommittee witness we have not yet seen. The witness did not take the call but told their lawyer. The lawyer told the Committee. The Committee referred it to #DOJ. #USAG, is this enuf for #WitnessTampering yet? Image
Other shattering testimony:
- The 12/18 meeting #TFG held in #OvalOffice with #SidneyPowell, #MikeFlynn, #Giuliani, & aides was “unhinged”-loud screaming, name-calling, almost coming to fisticuffs.
- They were there to discuss draft order to seize voting machines in key states.
- It was revealed at 12/18 meeting that #Trump had named #SidneyPowell as special counsel to prosecute cases related to the voting machines. Supposedly gave her a “security clearance.”

Today's hearing could be one of the most consequential held by the panel, potentially answering the long unresolved question of whether Trump knew that far-right extremist groups such as the Proud Boys and Oath Keepers would storm the Capitol.…
It could also potentially answer whether Trump was in contact through intermediaries with the groups’ leaders, who have since been indicted for seditious conspiracy.…

What has surprised @DavidPriess the most about the hearings?

He was not prepared for new information we've learned--after last hearing, the bar is high. He calls it "must see TV."

@DavidPriess .@mollyereynolds thinks the hearings show what Congress is capable of when a committee has the resources.

@nkorpett praises the coherent narrative the committee has been able to show. She's done investigations before.
