Here's a pic of the Mason jar Molotovs.
Feds also have pics of other weaponry in Coffman's possession: an assault rifle, 9 mm, crossbow, stun gun, much ammo & sticks of "camo smoke." Image
Bail memo has a photo (not going to post it) of handwritten notes in which Coffman names "Rep Carson D-Indiana" (apparent reference to Andre Carson) as "one of two Muslims in House of Reps."
Shortly there will be an initial appearance for another suspect in the Capitol riot, Aaron Mostofsky, the son a judge from Brooklyn, who was arrested this morning.…
Mostofsky's initial appearance has been delayed.
But at 3 pm, there is a hearing for Lonnie Coffman, the Molotov cocktail guy.

Louis Capriotti describes himself as a "nine-year Marine, active duty." Image

Robert Sanford, the retired PA firefighter who has been charged in the DC riot, went to the Capitol following "the President's instructions," a complaining witness told the FBI. Image
Peter Harding, a Buffalo area man, has been charged by feds in the Capitol riot. The FBI notes that he was captured in social media photo lighting fire to media camera equipment outside building before entering. Image
The FBI says Kevin Lyons was "evasive" at first about being inside the Capitol. Then, when agents showed him an Instagram pic he'd taken & posted of Nancy Pelosi's office, he caved.
"Wow, you're pretty good," he said. "That was only up for an hour." Image

Stay tuned.
As we wait for the Meredith to begin, note that a judge in Boise has released Josiah Colt, charged w/swinging from the balcony of the Senate last week.

INBOX: New York State Bar Association launches investigation into removing Rudy Giuliani.
To be clear: This is not a disbarment proceeding. It's an investigation into removing Rudy from a private organization of lawyers. It would be a stain on his career if it happens, but he could still practice.
Some context on the Giuliani bar association investigation:

While it won't affect his law license, the group says that it has not removed a lawyer from who had not already been disbarred since 1904.

From the transcript of today's election hearing in Atlanta (which Trump's lawyers did not allow remote access to):
Judge Mark Cohen begs Trump's lawyers for an authority giving him power to "step in...and decertify the electors that have been certified."
Spoiler: there isn't one.
Strong football metaphor here by Russell Willard of the GA AG's office on Trump's Hail Mary case:

"The fans have gone home, the marching bands have gone home, even his own team has gone home, and the plaintiff continues to think that he has some viable path
forward to victory."
Setting all metaphors aside, Willard just lets it hang out:

"They are throwing the equivalent of crap up against the wall just hoping that some of it will stick and convince someone."

NEW: The city of Detroit has just asked a federal judge to refer Sidney Powell, Lin Wood and the rest of Team Kraken for disbarment proceedings.
Powell & her colleagues filed 4 Kraken suits alleging a baseless conspiracy about foreign powers & Dominion voting machines. Judge Linda Parker in Detroit swatted it down.
Detroit's lawyers note that decision & say now it's time for the lawyers "to answer for that misconduct."
The filing notes the by-now repeated sins of Powell's filings: fake numbers, unverified claims, experts w/no expertise.
It also notes that Trump has continued to use the Kraken suits in his "desperate campaign to thwart the will of the voters" even up to his call w/GA's SOS.
