The signatures on the documents are from Trump's "alternate slate of electors"... radical GOP activists who declared themselves the "real" electors.
These "electors" tried barging into courthouses to submit documents that had been faked to look like legitimate state documents. They were not allowed in.

They also sent them to the National Archives, which, to me, is the more serious offense.
In sending them to the National Archives, they were trying to legitimize Donald Trump's fake "win" historically, or to create an "alternate" history.

If the riot had "worked" in stopping the certification, these fake certificates may have been used instead.
I seem to recall someone searching for the box of real certificates during the insurrection (is this right?)--most likely to destroy them.

Mark Meadows green-lighted the "fake electoral college" idea, which included forged election documents sent to the National Archives.…
How stupid did the forgers think the staff at the National Archives are? The archivists immediately turned over the documents to the Secretaries of State.…
Rudy Giuliani appears to be behind the forgery plan. But why? The documents were submitted on Dec. 14. On Dec. 18th, Mike Flynn and Sidney Powell were in the White House pushing for martial law.

Mark Meadows turned over an email with a presentation that was to be provided "on the hill" about Jan 6th. It's nuts. It's by ASOG and Phil Waldron and had these recommendations. Image
It claims, with zero evidence, that China took over our voting machines and that an astronaut should re-run the election. Image
Seriously, is this is what @SenTedCruz and @HawleyMO were voting for when they objected to certifying the election on Jan. 6th? Here's the astronaut they picked to re-run the election. Image

Gen. Walker report on Jan 6: THREAD

The Army had the DC National Guard "stand down" after the Capitol attack began.

There are a series of excuses for why this happened.
SecArmy's statement, at one point, was that they had no idea what was going on in the chaos. But the story kept changing.....
Another story was that Miller and McCarthy worked all afternoon on coming up with a plan.... but a plan never materialized.

"State Republican operatives have been building an apparatus of election theft. [They have] studied Donald Trump’s crusade to overturn the 2020 election. They have noted the points of failure and have taken concrete steps to avoid failure next time." @TheAtlantic
"Some of them have rewritten statutes to seize partisan control of decisions about which ballots to count and which to discard.... They are driving out or stripping power from election officials who refused to go along with the plot last November."
"What we know already, and could not have known [on Jan. 6], is that the chaos wrought on that day was integral to a coherent plan. In retrospect, the insurrection takes on the aspect of rehearsal."

Group chat of the "election fraud" leaders: (Thread.)

Patrick Byrne is disappointed he wasn't subpoenaed by the Jan 6th Committee. Image
Alex Jones says Secret Service told him to go to the Capitol on J6 to "meet the President there." He said "the General" could speak about why there were no National Guard there. (Flynn doesn't.) Image
Mike Flynn twitches a lot and comes across as someone with early dementia whose mind is stuck in a psyop loop. A good Philip K. Dick character. Image
