The govt's bid for detention for Jason Dolan, one of the four men added to the Oath Keeper conspiracy, says they suspect he and Kenneth Harrelson conducted surveillance of the Capitol the day before.

They also make a big deal out of the fact that both were filming the breach.
Oh. A marksmanship instructor. I can see why you'd want to detain this fella.
Yet more surveillance video of the Oath Keepers moving their weapons in and out of the Comfort Inn.
Some people learn to count by counting trucks or duckies. Here, they count gun cases.

[Dolan bought a gun for his daughter when she was 7.]
The govt says this interview with Gateway Pundit, providing an alternative theory for how the East Door he entered was opened, is Dolan.

thegatewaypundit.com/2021/05/huge-e…
They match the image in the Gateway Pundit story with a video obtained from Harrelson's phone filming Dolan taking a picture of the door on his own phone.
The govt SEEMS to suggest that this picture was taken by Harrelson. It says Harrelson, Meggs, and Dolan stood outside Pelosi's door for 6 minutes.
As the govt reminds, later that night Kelly Meggs, who was standing there with Dolan, said he wanted to see Pelosi's head roll down the stairs.
Apparently if you forensically recover Signal calls, they show duration as zero. (These were between Dolan and Harrelson, in a period when the attorney Dolan shares with the former President claimed he had no contact with the Oath Keepers).
Of course, the govt has shown contact with another member of the Oath Keepers long after this--bc Kellye Sorell arranged the Gateway Pundit story, which was in May.
What's interesting about the Gateway Pundit story is Dolan, a former Marine, appears to be trying to exonerate Marine Major Christopher Warnagiris, who he falsely claims opened the doors from the outside.
But that's not what Warnagiris is alleged to have done. Rather, he was THE FIRST person in the East Door (which was opened from inside), but then succeeded in keeping it open so people like Dolan could come in as well.

Now reading the III-Percenter Jan 6 conspiracy indictment (h/t @SeamusHughes), which is going to fuck up my table. Does this plan look familiar?

While Wray hearing is on break, reupping this point: Steve Cohen asked a dumb question about whether FBI had opened an investigation into Trump inciting violence on Jan 6. In response to such questions, Wray KEEPS answering, "conspiracy indictments."
Even his boss has said, "follow the evidence where it leads," which is basically the same answer: If there is evidence that directly ties Rudy and Roger and Mikey and possibly even Don to the insurrectionists, FBI will get there via conspiracy cases.

FBI has indicted 3 guys who went from the Willard Hotel, where they were "guarding" Roger Stone and others, to the Capitol. They indicted a guy discussed with Rudy Giuliani by name. At least one person involved in organizational issues has been indicted. An Alex Jones employee.

Listening in to Chris Wray's hearing, and in response to Zoe Lofgren Chris Wray raises the stupid auditing program that Billy Barr implemented, which is not going to work.
Now Chris Wray is bragging about his entirely new leadership team. One of those leaders refused to respond to my question about why he signed off on a document that had been altered.
Issa bitching abt FBI not being leaders on cyber. Wray refrains from bragging abt the An0m operation.

AUSA Bond says there's a cooperating witness against Freddie Klein they'll only ID if it goes to trial. They've extended a plea offer, but no response from Klein.
Klein's lawyer says they haven't gotten anything pertaining to Klein's cellphone.
Klein's lawyer says the offer made "is not very reasonable given the circumstances."

Rather than read a warmed over Don McGahn transcript, may I present to you William Chrestman bragging about attacking the Capitol?

documentcloud.org/documents/2080…
DOJ was being generous and didn't point out that a leadership role is one of the factors that Beryl Howell said supported detention.
So is assaulting a cop. Chrestman seems to brag about doing so here, but was not [yet] charged for it.

Also, this is a confession to the obstruction charge.

Tea Leaves on the Garland-Monaco DOJ and the Stay in Andrew McCabe's Lawsuit

emptywheel.net/2021/06/09/tea…
I noted earlier that McCabe and DOJ were in discussions for a settlement on his lawsuit. According to a just-filed update, they're still in discussions.

documentcloud.org/documents/2080…
As I noted in this post, amid discussions about the degree to which the Garland/Monaco DOJ is dealing with Trump's leftover garbage, what happens with McCabe's lawsuit may be quite interesting.
