BREAKING: Wray and Rosen had elite special forces in the Capitol with shoot-to-kill authority on Jan. 6 tasked with continuity of government.…
Their orders were authorized under standing presidential authority, but not sent through Trump at the time. They would have been tasked with protecting Pence and Pelosi, among others in line of succession.
The fact this specifically mentions "line of succession" is a big deal. It's possible that Jan6 failed because there were unexpected special forces in the Capitol under orders from the good guys.
For those with the propensity to be suspicious of Wray and Rosen ... their own force in the Capitol is some Scary Shit. I *think* this article is reason to give them the benefit of the doubt. @MuellerSheWrote
This story adds SPICE to two other events surrounding Jan6. Trump tried to force out Rosen - who ordered (and apparently commanded) the special forces - in the weeks leading up to the attack.…
And Clark, the Trump lackey who was in on trying to squeeze Rosen - has defied the J6C subpoena and been held in contempt. Rosen is cooperating.…
Prior to this article, I was vaguely aware that the DOJ/FBI had special forces of a variety of kinds that could be deployed for NATSEC, but the fact that the AG (or Acting AG in this case) would have a separate force under largely independent command from the POTUS ....
The idea of a separate, largely independent force ... makes me think a lot about this: Bill Barr, with just days to go before the coup, sang Trump's praises and resigned.…
Bottom Line: Rosen/Wray had hundreds of federal snipers and elite, deadly and unopposed forces in the Capitol. If the "line of succession" they chose to enforce was Trump's big lie, the coup would have been completed. Three cheers for Rosen/Wray.
On the flip side, any person that tried to use these forces to support the big lie clearly committed treason, and they should face the nation's harshest capitol punishment.
If you dig this kind of thing, I always appreciate a follow. I try to provide thoughtful context to news events without harnessing the demons of twitter rage-making.
This article provides some context to The Questions, but we are still in the dark on almost everything that matters.
It's worth looking at the comments on this tweet. I don't think that this changes the overarching theme very much.
I have asked several of the skeptics of this story whether they had reason to doubt that these forces were under independent control of the FBI/DOJ. I have not received an answer. I hope to.

Dear Ex Repubs attacking @SteveSchmidtSES. If YOU didn't know that Manafort and the Russians were in the McCain campaign that's on you. I knew it. It was no secret.
And if YOU weren't aware that Palin was selected by evil forces to weaken America - that's on YOU. I knew it. For me, it ended the McCain campaign that day.
And if YOU were Trump adjacent during the campaign or the term - that's on YOU. We knew what he was.

BREAKING: I'm going to read the Jan 6 Committee's filing re: Motion for Summary Judgement re: Mark Meadows suit seeking to prevent his testimony. Please read along.
When reading pleadings, I like to skip to the proposed Order, so I can discern what is being asked from the Court. We can know immediately that BOTH SIDES say they should win, and there are no facts in dispute. This gives a lot of discretion to the trial judge.
In federal cases, where there is often a table of contents, I usually take a look at at that, too. In this case, there are 56 pages of argument, mostly devoted to whether Mark Meadows can refuse to testify.

As a rule, I don't retweet traitors, so I am not going to link to or broadly quote the statement Michael Flynn today ... but it is among the most filthy traitorous things written by a US General since the Civil War and so ... a thread.
First off, Flynn is - like Bannon and Trump - trained and practiced in the worst of RU disinfo tactics. So nothing should be quoted in large, because everything is salted with lies, disinfo and despair. He is an atrocious POS and I can't believe people look to him as a leader.
The caption is already something. He was a National Security Advisor for 24 days before being fired and then convicted for lying about his contacts with the Russians.

Since SCOTUS ethics is in the news, let's not forget that CJ Roberts has been "studying" whether or not to have any since at least 2019.…
Because of our system of co-equal branches, Congress has not power to require SCOTUS to have any ethics, it would have to be self-imposed. So there aren't any.
Which brings me to the wildest thread I ever wrote about the only SCOTUS justice I have ever personally met - Justice Scalia. Who died on a junket with a party he had previously ruled on and that isn't nearly the worst part of the story.
