Storming The Capital 2: A Counter Storm is Coming

Post by Drak »

First we had WaPo break the story about the coup War Room set up before the insurrection.

Now Rolling Stone Magazine just broke this story tonight. For those following along, this isn't a surprise. The House Members named in this article have been named as conspirators by many for their activity and behavior surrounding the attempted coup.

EXCLUSIVE: Jan. 6 Protest Organizers Say They Participated in ‘Dozens’ of Planning Meetings With Members of Congress and White House Staff

As the House investigation into the Jan. 6 attack heats up, some of the planners of the pro-Trump rallies that took place in Washington, D.C., have begun communicating with congressional investigators and sharing new information about what happened when the former president’s supporters stormed the U.S. Capitol. Two of these people have spoken to Rolling Stone extensively in recent weeks and detailed explosive allegations that multiple members of Congress were intimately involved in planning both Trump’s efforts to overturn his election loss and the Jan. 6 events that turned violent.

Rolling Stone separately confirmed a third person involved in the main Jan. 6 rally in D.C. has communicated with the committee. This is the first report that the committee is hearing major new allegations from potential cooperating witnesses. While there have been prior indications that members of Congress were involved, this is also the first account detailing their purported role and its scope. The two sources also claim they interacted with members of Trump’s team, including former White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows, who they describe as having had an opportunity to prevent the violence.

The two sources, both of whom have been granted anonymity due to the ongoing investigation, describe participating in “dozens” of planning briefings ahead of that day when Trump supporters broke into the Capitol as his election loss to President Joe Biden was being certified.
The Republican House Members named in this article include:

Majorie Tyler Green
Paul Gosar - who's family has stated he was involved. The article states he dangled pardons to the planners
Lauren Boebert
Mo Brooks
Madison Cawthorn
Andy Biggs
Louie Gohmert

Not surprised at all. I was pretty sure of it. Word was some of them got pre-riot tours from members of Congress.

The fix was in. This is nothing short of treason.

The Traitor called the Willard Hotel "War Room" as his Allies were plotting the coup. Chief of Staff Meadows was in the fucking room.

https://www.rawstory.com/willard-hotel-war-room/.

It becoming even more clear that the Traitor's White House was involved in the coup. This was in no way a "Peaceful Demonstration" that "Got Out of Hand". It was a deliberate attempt to overthrow the Government of the United States and put in a dictator for life.

I have a couple of legitimate questions
1] isnt having a place for central planning for a political rally common
2] by law doesn't the planning center have to be off of government property
3] so if those two things are true doesn't it mean what was said in those meetings is what will determine if a crime was committed or planned
4] is it required for minutes of a planning meeting like that to be kept
5] if it turns out all they did was plan the event then won't it make Rolling Stone look bad. By inferring something nefarious was being planned at those meetings

Did you even read the Rollingstone article?

Doesn’t seem like it. Pardons were offered. Pardons aren’t offered unless there’s illegal activity going on.

As to the war room, the election was over. The players at the war room were designing a coup. See the Eastman memo and all the other available evidence such as comments from Bannon, video and social media posts that have been laid out over the last year as well as all the other articles you seem to ignore.

These people plotting to overthrow the November 2020 General Election Glenn, plotting insurrection. What they were doing is subverted the United States Constitution. The fucking White House Chief of Staff was in the room, the fucking Traitor called the fucking war room Glenn. This was an organized, planned attempted coup.

Some other reminders

https://www.rollingstone.com/politics/p ... y-1230904/
Steve Bannon, the White House adviser turned accused fraudster turned podcast host, admitted on Wednesday that he conferred with Trump ahead of the January 6th insurrection, with the intention of “kill[ing] the Biden presidency in its crib.”

Bannon’s activity anticipating January 6th has been well-documented, but the extent to which he spoke with Trump ahead of the insurrection was not known until Peril, a new book from Robert Costa and Bob Woodward, was published on Tuesday. Bannon appeared to confirm Costa and Woodward’s reporting during a recording his War Room podcast on Wednesday.

Bannon played clips of journalists discussing the book, which details how Bannon spoke with the then-president about the “crisis” that needed to be rectified on January 6th. “People are going to go, ‘What the fuck is going on here? We’re going to bury Biden on January 6th, fucking bury him,’” Bannon told Trump days before the insurrection, according to Peril. “We’re going to kill it in the crib, kill the Biden presidency in the crib.”

Righty is simply willing to accept a violent overthrow of our government.

I am betting of the 75 million who wanted MORE of trump in the WH, at LEAST 65 million of them would find a way to justify the violent overthrow of our government, regardless of how it happened.

And as DRAK just said, these crimes CANT be ignored. I am going to hope Garland does the right thing, I am going to take the lead of my close friend who advises me on all things "Hollywood" that Biden and Garland will do what needs to be done.

Cowboys for Trump Founder Turns on Trump in Conference Speech Over Capitol Riot Charges

Cowboys for Trump founder Couy Griffin, who is facing charges in connection with the U.S. Capitol riot, has turned on the former president in a conference speech for abandoning January 6 rioters and failing to deliver on a campaign promise.

Griffin is facing misdemeanor criminal charges in the insurrection on the Capitol on January 6, where he was seen attempting to lead a crowd of rioters in prayer on an outdoor terrace. He supports Trump's baseless claims of widespread voter fraud, but denies that he knowingly entered restricted grounds to disrupt Congress certifying President Joe Biden's election win.

From that link, talk about a HORRIBLE person, this Griffin guy:

"We supported President Trump because of his fight for justice as well. And for four years we cried, 'Lock her up. Lock her up. Lock her up.' We know she's a criminal. What did the president tell us? 'If I was in charge of the law, you'd be in jail,'" Griffin said Sunday at a QAnon conference in Las Vegas, Nevada.

"Mr. President, you've been in charge of the law for four years," he added. "At the end of your four year time, the only ones locked up were men like me, and others like me, that have stood by the president the strongest."

In 2019, Griffin led a group of rodeo associates to form Cowboys for Trump, who held parades to show support for the Trump administration.
this asshole thinks it is Hillary who needs to be in jail...

You are 100pct correct if that is what was going on at those meetings. However if they were planning the logistics of the rally then it would have been a normal process for a political rally.
So the problem becomes without minutes or audio or video how can it be proven what went on in those meetings. The one piece of damming evidence is where the guy said I have just came back from a pardon briefing and allegedly tapped his notebook.
But that while obvious isn't criminal. As for the war room I would be amazed had trump called it anything else.
To summarize all we know now is there were planning meetings for a political rally held legally at a hotel.

Yes, it is common if it's for a political rally.

From my understanding, you normally cannot use government facilities for political purposes.

3] so if those two things are true doesn't it mean what was said in those meetings is what will determine if a crime was committed or planned
Regardless of whether question number #1 and/or question #2 is true what ever took place in that meeting is what is important.

4] is it required for minutes of a planning meeting like that to be kept
Unless the group is a business or falls under legal requirements for keeping minutes I'd say it's up to them as to whether they kept minutes.

5] if it turns out all they did was plan the event then won't it make Rolling Stone look bad. By inferring something nefarious was being planned at those meetings
If the claims made by Rolling Stone are false then it would make them look bad.

It wasn't logistics of a rally - it was logistics of a coup. They were trying to prevent Biden from becoming President by any means necessary. They wanted to force Pence to illegally take the Presidency from Biden. They were working with the Oath Keepers and the Proud Boys, who were using organized tactics to break into the Capital.

But hey, you'll keep saying that Trump would NEVER do anything illegal or underhanded, won't you?

Gosar is in deep. Soon after the attempted coup, he tried to downplay it as a protest. Then he started blaming "ANTIFA" and BLM. Then he started blaming the FBI for setting up a false flag operation. Now he's calling the J6 people who were arrested patriots and political prisoners.

This was posted on the other forum, but here's part of the Eastman Memo.

Eastman is now making denials, and is pretending he doesn't know who told him to come up with this. This is treason.
