This post talks about the charges against 12 of the men present when Ashli Babbitt was shot. 4 have been charged w/damaging the building (which can carry a terror enhancement), one has been charged for being armed w/a knife and lying about it.
"Many of the alleged plot leaders have thus far been shielded from charges."
Maybe the FBI should interview Glenn and figure out who he knows to be the "plot leaders" here. Also, maybe he should figure out how conspiracy investigations work?
"Original report, published by Revolver News and then amplified by Fox News’ Tucker Carlson, documented ample evidence of FBI infiltration of the three key groups at the center of the 1/6 investigation."
Laughably, embarrassingly false. They made false accusations of that.
I genuinely love this Glenn Greenwald, people. I mean, there is no funnier comedy on this site right now, where a so-called libertarian doubles down on a provably false conspiracy theory because... well, MOAR SUBSTACK!!!
One thing that has been glossed over in DUMBANDFUNNY Glenn's "analysis" is that of the one group that we KNOW has FBI informants, the Proud Boys, the reason the FBI wouldn't have seen 1/6 is bc Billy Barr had trained the FBI to treat the Proud Boys as legitimate sources on Antifa
That is, for DUMBANDFUNNY Glenn Greenwald, FBI's failure is not the demonstrably true fact that Billy Barr treated Antifa as terrorists, but instead the bizarre world claim that Billy Barr's DOJ had it in for Donald Trump.
Thomas Webster has made much of being on some kind of detail for Bloomberg in his last years at NYPD (he was in Intel Div). I haven't been able to ID his proof in the (unredacted) NYPD files he posted to docket. But when asked abt it, he got squirrely.
First, if you're the leader of an already back-biting militia hoping to avoid being indicted in the conspiracy indictments, it's probably not going to help that you just pissed everyone off with your grifting.
Several members (like Dominick Crowl) were already disgusted w/Rhodes going into Jan 6. Crowl doesn't have anything on Rhodes but Jessica Watkins likely does.
Listening to Josh Schulte hearing. He says last November he wanted to go pro se (he SORT OF did!). That would mean that he would have access to a computer. That's why he thinks he can have live access to Lexis.
Who knows? It might work!
So here's where things are at in case of Josh Schulte, accused of burning the CIA to the ground.
1) Two of the prosecutors on the case left govt. When asked when there'll be more, Dention said, "hopefully soon"?
2) Steve Bellovin, who was the dream expert for Schulte, has very little time to play that role for the second trial, and they haven't found another (I'm betting Schulte wants to play that role too).
As you read Rosen pretending to be stand-offish with Rudy G, remember that 10 months earlier, he went to GREAT LENGTHS to allow Rudy to introduce material DOJ knew was from a Russian agent with no legal risk to Rudy.
1) This is NOT spying. The Schiff records and the McGahn records were, at most, call records (and w/McGahn probably not even that). These records are obtained on a "relevant to" standard, meaning there's also NO allegation that Schiff or McGahn were investigated personally.
I wonder what NYT is going to do when they "report" that Mueller obtained Michael Cohen's Trump Org CONTENT from Microsoft, with a gag?
McGahn was, as far as has been made public, not questioned about any of the sketchy coordination going on between independent SuperPACs and the campaign, of which at least 4 examples came up during the Mueller investigation.
Timing of suboena that did not TARGET Schiff but nevertheless obtained his call records is pretty crazy: February 6, 2018.
As I note, that was < month after they found Signal texts on James Wolfe's phone, but not confirmation he was source on Page FISA. emptywheel.net/2021/06/12/car…
But it would have been a time of real transition in National Security Division. Dana Boente had been Acting NSD (along with AG and DAG at times, as well as his day job, EDVA USA) since Mary McCord left. But he announced he was quitting in October 2017. washingtonpost.com/local/public-s…
But he stuck around for his replacement, John Demers (who's still there awaiting his replacement, Matt Olsen). Still, BEFORE this subpoena, Chris Wray announced Boente as his new FBI GC.
For a LOT of reasons, it'd be worthwhile to review the James Wolfe investigation, not least because it shows how FBI seized the CONTENT of a SSCI staffer's phone (by claiming he was compromised, which may be important background wrt Swalwell).
Wolfe was convicted of lying about his contacts with journalists, including Ellen Nakashima. But DOJ never proved he was the source for the FISA story--and they would have gotten search returns on his phone weeks before the Schiff/Swalwell subpoena.
I love defendants who write down on paper all the security steps they're going to take on magic online services. This is Zach Alam, who broke the window through which alleged "protestor" Ashli Babbitt jumped through.
