This is a notably specific description of the status of the FBI's examination of Stone. They seem to have links to Oath Keepers and others involved in the attack on the Capitol as probable cause to examine his communications.…

People climbing wall on west front earlier.
Back online after losing service outside Capitol as the Trumpers stormed the building. Some backed up stuff followed. Here the woman in the blue Trump hat tried to dissuade idiots from storming building. Partly by saying the leaders were antifa, but still, good for her.
Guy holding flag here was yelling that he would come back with his gun if Biden is inaugurated. ImageImage

Angela Stanton-King, an obscure right wing figure pardoned by Trump by Trump just screamed into loud, a very much working mic, “my mic isn’t working.” And: “They’re trying to shut us down.”
Alex Jones calls Joe Biden a “slave of Satan.”

The big loser in this expose seems to be Abbe Lowell. Diller's dead. Baras has served his time. Broidy's already taken a zillion PR hits. But this suggests that DOJ at least suspected Lowell, a renowned defense lawyer, of illegally lobbying the WH.…
Notably, Lowell represents GOP fundraiser Nickie Lum Davis. In August Lowell negotiated with DOJ a deal in which Davis pleaded guilty to aiding/abetting illegal lobbying for Malaysia (to kill DOJ's IMDB investigation) and providing evidence against Broidy.…
Lowell was also Davis' lawyer at the time she engaged in the 1MDB lobbying scheme she has admitted was illegal. And he was personally involved those lobbying efforts.…
