He wore his badge to the insurrection.
Again, you’ve probably heard Ron Johnson or Ted Cruz say that there weren’t guns among January 6th rioters, but that claim is clearly false. Most people there were not stopped and searched, and when someone is put under the spotlight it often becomes evident he was carrying.
Interesting to note that it wasn’t the FBI who bagged this DEA agent. It was DOJ OIG. cc @SeamusHughes

This hearing has historic, and I dare say unprecedented, levels of just plain bickering with a federal district judge, both by the krakenistas and the lawyer they’ve hired. It’s like a window into another dimension.
One of the most obstreperous krakenistas at this hearing is Julia Haller, whose LinkedIn states she held senior advisory positions at the White House, the Ex-Im Bank, the Dept of Housing and Urban Development, and the Dept of Homeland Security during the Trump Admin.

Ronan Farrow and Jia Tolentino write about the scheme to take control of Britney Spears newyorker.com/news/american-…
