THREAD: Two and 1/2 years ago, in my 2nd article about #Jan6, (Feb. 24, 2021), I revealed a “very high probability that both [Army] ’Special Forces’ operatives and U.S. Marshalls were mixed in with the crowd that entered the Capitol Building.” ⬇️

10 months later (Jan. 3, 2022) Newsweek confirmed my sourcing with a story headlined, “Secret Commandos with Shoot-to-Kill Authority Were at the Capitol.” saying, “The role that the military played in this highly classified operation is still unknown.” ⬇️…
I have quietly investigated this discovery ever since and eventually revealed my knowledge of a SpecOps group deployed on J6 to be a top-secret SIGINT group from Ft. Belvoir, just outside D.C. (I have no info if this is the same group Newsweek reported.) ⬇️
I have long been aware of a current member of this “unit” deployed to the Capitol on J6. Late in 2022, I was introduced to a retired member of the same SpecOps group. In short, he was highly impressed with my knowledge of that unit, as they officially . . . “do not exist.” ⬇️
They may not officially “exist,” but in 2007, British author @MickWSmith revealed the existence and history of this U.S. Army SpecOps group in his book, “Killer Elite: The Inside Story of America's Most Secret Special Operations Team” ⬇️…
Unlike the SEALS or Delta Force, this secretive Army team does not have a name. Only their specific operations are given a name, and they are otherwise generally referred to as “the activity,” “the unit,” or “orange.” ⬇️
My source, who is a retired member of “the unit” does not believe his former group could possibly have been used for any purpose on J6, as it is outside the operational protocols of their mission. Namely, when he was a member, they would never be used for domestic operations. ⬇️
Also, he says they would never have been “seconded” to @FBI. They have a specific chain of command within the Army hierarchy and are only ever seconded to the CIA in overseas ops. That said, he has been retired from “the unit” for almost a decade. ⬇️
In my recent interactions with congressional members and staff, I have been informed that they are aware the “the unit” was operational in some capacity on J6, but have been unable to get answers from @DeptofDefense, specifically because they “do not officially exist.” ⬇️
In recent weeks, trying to get more information, I’ve read another team of special ‘intel’ investigators into my research on this subject. Our most recent discovery is that they have been able to identify another current member of “the unit” who was at the Capitol on J6. ⬇️
Before I go any further in this narrative, I'll emphasize that I've never implied “the unit” was deployed on J6 for nefarious purposes. In my 1st story, I theorized that they were simply there to “take care of business” should protestors get out of hand, using lethal weapons. ⬇️
That established, their presence and deployment raises serious questions. Why are military forces being deployed in violation of posse comitatus law? Is it common practice for @DeptofDefense to allow military SpecOps to be used at domestic protest events? ⬇️
More importantly, if this is not common, and was a one-off operation . . . having “the unit” seconded to @FBI on J6 . . . WHY? What did they know, requiring “the unit's” presence at the Capitol, and what was “the unit’s” “posture” on J6? ⬇️
We are seeking more information, and answers to those questions, but do not expect to receive those directly from @FBI, @CapitolPolice, (if they even knew), or from @DeptofDefense. But, you may be asking why I’m talking about this without having all the facts nailed down. ⬇️
My @FBI whistleblowing friends, @KyleSeraphin and @RealStevefriend have advised me that “daylight” is not only the “best disinfectant,” but also the best “protection” when one is hovering this close over the target. ⬇️
I don’t have the same covering as that afforded a reliable MSM journalist - as when @FBI had Newsweek’s @warkin release a one-year anniversary CYA story about their deployment of every 3-letter agencies’ tactical teams and military commandos with “shoot to kill” orders on J6. ⬇️
So . . . I’m letting @FBI and @DeptofDefense know that I’ve now read three other friendly journalists, a team of think tank investigators, and several congressional staffers into the details of this story. “Whacking” me, to stop my work, will probably be counterproductive. 😏⬇️
But, they are welcome to reach out to me and answer my questions. (I also have more.) I’m certain they already have my number.

Stay tuned. More on this, and even more important J6 stories are in the pipeline.

THREAD: I have once again collaborated with @EpochJoe64 on a @CapitolPolice whistleblower story. This one has to do with an unexplained order that former USCP Lt. Tarik Johnson received from Capt. Ben Smith in the days preceding #Jan6.
This was an order that violated equipment protocols on multiple levels. Receiving the order to collect helmets, Johnson was told to have his officers bring them to his office. Johnson said in his 23 years on the force, he had never experienced this.…
Dept. protocol requires a one-for-one exchange of replaced equipment, “from tie tacks to bullets,” Johnson told me. There is also the matter that all equipment is to be returned or exchanged at the USCP Property Asset Management Division building - not to a superior officer.

In the immediate aftermath of former Senate Sergeant at Arms Michael Stenger’s death on June 27, 2022, conspiracy theories began flying on social media. Last night I had the opportunity to speak with one of Stenger’s close friends about the final months of his life.
In Stenger’s only Senate testimony following #Jan6, he famously said in his opening statement:

“Investigations should be considered as to funding and travel of what appears to be professional agitators.” (February 23, 2021)
Stenger was one of the only high-ranking J6 figures to insinuate there might have been such an organized assault on the Capitol, rather than a riot spontaneously instigated by Trump’s speech at The Ellipse. That’s all the conspiracy purveyors needed.

THREAD: A few comments on @julie_kelly2’s Ryan Samsel story:

First, and foremost, Samsel’s 6th and 8th Amendment rights have been irrefutably trampled - by the DOJ, itself.…
Failing to indict Samsel until seven months after his arrest, combined with having been subjected to “diesel therapy” 16 times, along with his prison injuries, his case should be thrown out.
At any other time, and at any other protest, every true “liberal” journalist and jurist would be screaming for his release and his case to be dropped, because of those rights violations. An appellate court should immediately intervene.

Think of which Congress member you were most disappointed in for having caved and voted ‘Yea’ on the debt ceiling compromise. (I’m looking at you, @RepThomasMassie.) 1/7
The fact is, they were pressured by @SpeakerMcCarthy and other leaders, with threats against their own committee and leadership positions. 2/7
Unfortunately, this is not speculation. This is well-sourced, insider info. Basically, to keep their leadership status, they failed at true “leadership.” 3/7

Mehta returned at 12:37 pm, to begin reviewing the sentencing guidelines and other considerations . . .
Mehta addresses Rhodes directly, “You were convicted of seditious conspiracy, and you’re a lawyer. . .” Then the lecture begins . . . which includes the history of seditious conspiracy under the law, and says it’s one of the most serious offenses any American can commit.
It is a series of acts in which he and others committed to using force against the government of the US, to prevent the transition of government to “the new guy” because he doesn’t like “the new guy.”
