In Ryan Samsel detention hearing, prosecutor reads statement from the cop he knocked over and caused a concussion.
She's still not back to full-time work, still having issues with brain injury caused by assault.
As prosecutor notes, Samsel is not the only one involved in the assault. The other guy allegedly laughed that her head bounced.
Prosecutor raises concerns about a witness who provided testimony against Samsel, bc the witness would be in vicinity of where Samsel got released.
To clarify: there is no way Samsel will be *released*. ? is whether he stays in jail in VA, where they're not giving him very good medical care for assault he suffered in DC jail, or whether he goes to PA penitentiary to pay off parole violation, where he may get better care.
One of the other people implicated in injuring that cop is Paul Johnson (Samsel is on the right with the white hoodie). Samsel at least helped the cop up. Johnson ran to the next barricade.…
And then Stephen Chase Randolph was on the other side of Samsel when the cop went down. When he was interviewed by undercover Feebs he said her head bounced off the railing.…

Again the problem isn't that Maggie is reporting Trump's so-called delusions. It's that she's not reporting that Trump is going to attempt a second coup. Coup attempts aren't legal, but Jan 6 showed they were possible.
I think it's USEFUL that the people who were party to Trump's first attempted coup are disavowing a second one. But only if that is accurately described as such, along with accountability for those who say, now, they won't sanction a second attempt.
Some of those same people, btw, believed they could put Trump on an "off-ramp" after the election and as a result allowed the Big Lie to metastasize.

In an attempt to defeat Jacob Chansley's bid for a new detention proceeding, USG released new pics. Here he is entering the Senate.…
Also, the govt is not at all, not even remotely, impressed that Chansley prevented the theft of a muffin.
Also, DOJ says Chansley's spear continued to be a threat to the VP (as well as the key factor for 1752 charges) throughout the riot.

Listening to Gionet hearing: AZ wants to add conditions on Baked Alaska's release. We've seen one report of Gionet being an asshole on the Internet and having contact with the cops. Apparently there's a second report that hasn't been made public yet.
"Multiple contacts with law enforcement in last 10 days"
One thing that's going on with this hearing is that Gionet was arrested BEFORE they standardized release conditions, so was permitted to keep *legal* guns.

Note, between the 130 people currently charged with assault or related (by my count ~90 are charged with assault) and the 250 suspects IDed by BOLOs, that says 380 assault suspects.
In other words, around 340 of these @RepGosar's tourists at least pushed cops, and many outright beat them.
Here's my running list of MOST of the defendants charged with assault.…

Barbara Jones' Special Mastery of Releasing Donald Trump's Lawyers' Crime-Fraud Excepted Communications…
SDNY strongly suggests they already know there are crime fraud excepted communications in Rudy and Vicky's files.

And the one way to get them out is have Special Master Barbara Jones do that for them.
Remember this, from John Dowd? Do you think Barbara Jones is smart enough to see through it?

Prosecutor in case of Guy Reffitt says his trial will take a week.

Says there are more charges against him coming in the "very near future."
They're going to charge Reffitt with possessing a gun, on top of 231 or 111. Which can't be the case bc Glenn Greenwald tells me no one was armed.
2-3TB of evidence against Reffitt.

Oops! Reffitt deleted pictures from the day, but they're on a Surface Pro locked via facial recognition that they can't get into yet. They're going to ask for a compulsion order on Reffitt's face.
