This is Entrekin.

He dressed as the warrior to Moroni at insurrection.

He is, per his allocution, one of the best-educated Jan 6 defendants.

There's good reason to believe that some defendants get arrested to get to the video and photos they took that day.

Entrekin took some very useful video, not least bc he was in several offices, where there's not the same CCTV.
More reason to believe DOJ was after Entrekin's videos from his statement of offense.

Last year there was a terrorist attack in DC. You'd think @SallyBuzbee would assign 10 reporters full time to understand that terrorist attack.

Instead, yesterday, @wapo buried the scoop that DOJ is asking about Rudy Giuliani's ties to those who led the terrorist attack in ¶30.
@SallyBuzbee @wapo In getting to that really huge piece of news buried in ¶30, the 4+2 reporters on the story exhibit 1) no awareness that DOJ is investigating the event as obstruction of the vote certification 2) no awareness of Alex Jones' role in the terrorist attack...
@SallyBuzbee @wapo 3) No awareness that DOJ has spent the last 8 months getting a privilege review of Rudy's phones (the guy DOJ seems to know was in contact with the leaders of the terrorist attack).

That's how WaPo reports that Trump has nothing to do with sedition.

In his last little story, @mattzap quoted from Jonathan Turley as if he knew fuckall. In this story Matt and his colleagues prove they're unfamiliar with the investigation.
@mattzap Here's the premise, the journalist who quoted Jonathan Turley as a credible source, lays out.

People would know.

To his--and @wapo's credit--they actually ask people distanced from the insurrection whether DOJ has overtly investigated them. Image
@mattzap @wapo Here's one reason you should have GREAT BIG QUESTIONS about this story. @mattzap poses just two theories of Trump criminality, which are months and months out of date. Image

Lots of TV lawyers have gotten people riled up about NEW grand juries investigating particular targets.

The seditious conspiracy indictment came from the same grand jury that's been investigating Oath Keepers since Jan 8, 2021.

There are at least two (I think three) more grand juries that appear dedicated to Jan 6. The Bannon indictment came out of one--May 25, 2021.

The Capitol Police cop accused of obstruction came out of the third, August 11, 2021.

This is a good background on the law, but it gets two details of the case wrong, IMO.
It notes the addition of 18 USC 372 new with this indictment.

At one level, that just backstops the two other conspiracies, so the OKs can't go free if they beat sedition.

But it, along with 18 USC1512(k), is what Trump also did.
It also notes that Roger Stone is absent.

It's true that none of the multiple references to Stone in earlier legal filings appears in this iteration.

In fact, they TOOK OUT stuff showing reporting on him that was in December's indictment.

A lot of people are pretty interested in the Quick Reaction Force laid out in the sedition conspiracy yesterday. Here's a post (from July) laying out what was public then.

With picture of the Oath Keepers carting their guns around Ballston Comfort Inn.

Contra Kelly Meggs' lawyer, there IS new info on the QRF in yesterday's indictment. A few more details about OTHER QRFs (that maybe one thing that DOJ would like someone to cooperate on), and Signal Texts from Stewie regarding them.
The Oath Keepers did a LOT on Signal. DOJ appears to have first started reconstructing the Signal chats when they seized Jessica Watkins' phone, almost a year ago.

But there's a lag in exploiting phones, especially if they used good passcodes.

Hunter Ehmke guilty plea finishing up. He's paying for the full cost of the window he broke, but facing just a 0-6mo guideline for a 10 year potential sentence.

Every time a Cara Halvorsen client gets resolved, I laugh at what a bonehead Brandon Fellows was for firing her.
And before Halverson got Ehmke this great plea deal, she got him off a release violation for going to a gun range.
Note: Ehmke's plea was most interesting to see if he managed to break the windows he did with some kind of notice they WOULD break.

It sounds like there's no evidence he coordinated with anyone.
