@RepRiggleman who is saying someone made a 9 second call from a switch board from the white house. Keep in mind the call was made after Trump told everyone to go home. 4:17 pm #Jan6th…
It’s unclear what, if any, connection exists between the White House and the rioter, including whether the call was made by mistake or whether the call went to voicemail. I found this from 2012

Steve #Bannon, ehemals einer der Top-Berater des ex-#USA-Presitoddlers #Trump, hat sich in #NewYork der Polizei gestellt - ermittelt wird wohl wegen dessen Spendenkampagne zur Unterstützung des #Mauer-Baus nach #Mexiko. /MS…
Mehr zu den Hintergründen von #WeBuildTheWall gibt's hier. Neben dem Vorwurf der Veruntreuung erwartet Bannon im Oktober noch ein Urteil wegen "Missachtung des Kongresses" im Zuge der Aufklärung des #Jan6th-Putschversuchs. /MS…
Die Vorwürfe gegen Steve #Bannon und #WeBuildTheWall sind saftig: Geldwäsche und Verschwörung zum Betrug.
Vom damals-gerade-noch-Presitoddler #Trump gab es zwar einen Gnadenerlass für Bannon, aber nur auf Bundesebene - die Staaten können weitermachen. /MS

Ask yourself if you thought Biden’s speech tonight was “political” or even “too political,” what would you have taken out? And still made the theme that MAGA is threat to democracy?
The advocacy for voting Democratic in November by Biden is not solely a partisan move. Giving GOP House means ending #jan6th investigations, putting Covid officials on trial, etc. If GOP gets Senate too democracy gets gut punch.
Biden’s audience: There are indeed Republicans who will vote Biden in 2024 but vote party in 2022. In some districts peeling off them from voting for GOP election liars as SOS for example matters for the democracy.

Politicians ratcheting up the violent rhetoric know what will happen...

...because most have had their own security scares over the years.

It's awful. For a whole family.

Still, they've decided to inflict it on their colleagues.

Ugly stuff.
2/ Sure, we've seen a loss of civility in politics.

But legislators playing with rhetoric that will turn colleagues & friends into targets for violence is next level.

It is profoundly morally disappointing.
3/ In the run-up to #Jan6th politicians ratcheted up the incitement.

Just words, right?

And then it happened.

Remember how sobered, traumatized & chastened lawmakers were that evening?

Yet, here we are again.

All patriotic Americans and our allies should read this thread, and share it and its individual contents to as many others as possible.

Christian Nationalism


It is a real faction in the GOP and Christianity. Here's a thread laying out what it wants.
First, here are some Christian Nationalists gloating because they don't think anyone will ever see or agree with my message. It's in their best interests for you to shrug this off as alarmist. ImageImageImage

SCOTUS "agreement to hear Moore v. Harper... isn’t just bad news for efforts to control gerrymandering.

The Court’s right-wing supermajority is poised to let state lawmakers overturn voters’ choice in presidential elections."

"Trump then tried and failed, lawlessly, to muscle the GOP state legislators into discarding Biden’s victory and appointing Trump electors instead.

The Moore case... could give Republicans legal cover in 2024 to do as Trump demanded in 2020."

"That is a genuinely radical proposition...

The idea that legislatures stand unbound by any limit from their own founding documents is a fringe debating point invented for Republican political advantage."

"The OIG Joseph V. Cuffari did not press the dept leadership at that time to explain why they did not preserve these records...

Cuffari also failed to alert Congress to the potential destruction of government records."

"In a nearly identical scenario to that of the DHS leaders’ texts, the Secret Service alerted Cuffari’s office seven months ago, in December 2021, that the agency had deleted thousands of agents’ and employees’ text messages."

"In the weeks before the attack on the Capitol, Trump had been pressuring both men to help him claim the 2020 election results were rigged and even to seize voting machines in key swing states to try to “re-run” the election."

"The Justice Department is investigating President Donald Trump’s actions as part of its criminal probe of efforts to overturn the 2020 election results"

"Prosecutors who are questioning witnesses... have asked in recent days about conversations w/ Trump, his lawyers, & others in his inner circle who sought to substitute Trump allies for certified electors from some states Joe Biden won"

"The prosecutors have asked hours of detailed questions about meetings Trump led in December 2020 & January 2021; his pressure campaign on Pence to overturn the election; and what instructions Trump gave his lawyers & advisers about fake electors"

NEW from @POGOwatchdog: Homeland Security’s top watchdog KNEW about erased #SecretServiceTexts related to #Jan6th back in FEBRUARY, but didn't tell Congress until last week.…
POGO's @schwellenbach told @washingtonpost that @DHSOIG delay in reporting the problem lowers the odds of retrieving data that wasn’t properly backed up or archived. Digital forensics experts could have been working to recover these lost texts for months.…
This is not the first time @DHSOIG Cuffari has slow-walked taking critical actions during time-sensitive reviews: He let a report filled with disturbing findings regarding sexual misconduct @DHSgov languish for over a year without publicizing its findings.…

So Department of Defense kind of released some emails from Jan6th after a FOIA request. Although the 48 pages were mostly repetitive with a lot of redactions ... they did reveal a few interesting tidbits.…
A few items on this report that are especially interesting. Reports of protestors with baseball bats were discounted apparently. Like this guy, who carried a baseball bat all day and was I believe the 2nd or 3rd person to break into the Capitol on #Jan6th on the west side breach.
Second item ... who the hell was operating a drone near the Washington monument on #Jan6th? #SeditionHunters

New 🔥🔥: Jericho March organizers quickly pivoted to promote the #Jan6th Trump rally at the Capitol within days after a late night impromptu meeting where Sidney Powell, Gen. Michael Flynn, and Patrick Byrne were snuck into the White House to meet President Trump. #Jan6Hearings
On Dec 12th, 2020 a Trump rally to protest Stop the Steal of the 2020 election (in their minds) was held in Washington DC called the Jericho March... also sometimes referred to as the 2nd Million MAGA March. General Michael Flynn was the keynote speaker at the event.
The Jericho March was also co-promoted by #1LoudVoice & included other speakers that have since gained notoriety 4 their involvement at the Jan6th Capitol Insurrection such as Stewart Rhodes, Ali Alexander & Alex Jones. Over 800+ people have since been arrested for Jan6th crimes.

"Hutchinson testified to hearing Trump order the magnetometers (metal detectors) used to keep armed people away from the president be removed:

“I don’t fucking care that they have weapons, they’re not here to hurt me... Let my people in."

The car thing is not as important as the fact that:

and said:

"I don’t f-ing care that they have weapons.
They're not here to hurt ME.
Take the f-ing mags [magnetometers] away.
Let MY people in…"

"Trump’s order to “take the fucking mags away,” whether or not the Secret Service obeyed it, was not constitutionally protected political speech but, rather, an overt act, sandwiched between sentences reflecting awareness & intent..."

"The clear and present danger to our democracy now is that former President Donald Trump & his political allies appear prepared to... seize the presidency in 2024 if Trump or his anointed candidate is not elected by the American people."
"Republican senators like Ted Cruz of Texas & Josh Hawley of Missouri tried to capitalize on those ambiguities in the law to do Trump’s bidding, mounting a case for overturning the results in some Biden-won states on little more than a wish."

"Trump is once again counting on a sympathetic and malleable Congress and willing states to use the Electoral Count Act to his advantage.

He confirmed as much in a twisted admission of both his past and future intent earlier this month"…

"he told Eastman that the plan violated the Electoral Count Act and that “Mr. Eastman acknowledged that that was the case.”
Knowledge of the plot being illegal is significant when it comes to whether the Jan. 6 plotters committed a crime."

"Eastman told Giuliani: “I’ve decided that I should be on the pardon list, if that is still in the works.”

This is big — and not just because Eastman sought a pardon, thereby acknowledging his own legal liability."

"Jacob described the process for drafting Pence’s statement rejecting the Trump team’s plan. He said Pence wanted it to be “just so” because “this may be the most important thing I ever say.”"

The #January6thCommitteeHearings started on 6/9/22 evening with witness testimony & video footage surrounding the riot on the Capitol on #J6. The televised hearing is the 1st in a series that is expected to last through July.
I will ask the questions not being asked & quote many. Image
In all of the video shown on Prime TV by the #January6thCommitteeHearings, I didn't see a single frame w/ Ray Epps as he is seen in multiple videos on Jan 5 & #J6.

Why was Ray Epps encouraging people to go "into" the Capitol building?

Did the FBI hire Ray Epps?
Who is #RayEpps? Image
@BennieGThompson @RepLizCheney & @RepKinzinger
Does the FBI now, or has it ever, maintained a formal or informal relationship or point of contact w/ Ray Epps, whether directly or indirectly, including through intermediaries?

I am glad the #FAFO proudboys are up first with their violent seditious attacks on our democracy which is also a reflection of how they worked with the fbi and police vs #blacklivesmatter!

@joebiden was on @jimmykimmel and said #lockthemup about @gop political opposition. He also was gaslighting about how great everything is going and he didn't mention shit about all the suffering vets. #chudwatch
He #jan6th shitshow show trials are here. The proudboys start off tomorrow it's said. Fbi informants Biggs and tarrio charged with sedition were working with the police and military against #BlackLivesMatter

I wonder how much truth will be in this presentation. We know so much!
Those of us battling these #whitesupremacists #domesticterrorists were the targets of fbi police and lawmakers. In fact all the lawmakers involved are not charged yet. I sense scapegoating a few proud boys and Oath Keepers maybe they will get trump but then they will call it good

An intriguing piece of #OSINT was revealed in a tweet by Staci Burk days ago. Its not clear she realizes the possible significance. Days later she would receive another "credible threat" demanding she delete her twitter accnt & stop talking. Out of fear it appears she compiled.
In a recent @Propublica article about the #BigLie (Trump's continued fraudulent claim the 2020 election was stolen), Ms Burk is mentioned & implies she came up with some of the election lies. Burk posted a NEW late Nov. 2020 text 2 refute this & suggest she was used as a conduit
Turns out we grabbed this first screenshot and then moments later it was gone, then followed by another one that now redacted the word "Robyn" at the bottom. We figured she had just missed that redaction and wanted to correct it. But immediately the name "Epps" caught our eye.

So some interesting things have surfaced in the last few weeks that I want to share. Be patient with me, I’m slow & get interrupted a lot. But, I think it’s worth it to share this information before the mid-term elections.

😃 Please don’t forget to vote in November…💙
This article from 04/06/2022 has been weighing on my mind…it’s regarding the #RockbridgeNetwork, defined as a coalition.

What is a “political coalition” in the US?
Not much. It’s basically a verbal, non-regulated agreement to finance an agreed upon political agenda.
While #RockbridgeNetwork is being considered a “new GOP coalition”, it isn’t, think #CambridgeAnalytica. Plus, it is not the only “new GOP coalition” popping up before mid-term elections. #ChestnutStreetCouncil has been started by Matt Schlapp, think #KochNetwork

What Trump Is Hiding

Seven hours and 37 minutes of missing phone records on January 6 suggest consciousness of guilt.

"Journalists often quote his incendiary language from the speech: “Fight like hell”; “We will not take it anymore.” But Trump also laid out a precise plan of action for the crowd:"

"Trump promised the crowd that if they did as he urged—if they marched on Congress, if they showed strength—they could force a change of the election result."

Jan. 6 White House logs given to House show 7-hour gap in Trump calls

The House select committee is investigating whether it has the full record and whether Trump communicated that day through backchannels, phones of aides or personal disposable phones…
"Internal White House records from the day of the attack on the US Capitol... show a gap in Trump’s phone logs of seven hours and 37 minutes, including the period when the building was being violently assaulted"

"The seven-hour gap also stands in stark contrast to the extensive public reporting about phone conversations he [Trump] had with allies during the attack..."
