Investigators pursuing signs US Capitol riot was planned

 

Evidence uncovered so far, including weapons and tactics seen on surveillance video, suggests a level of planning that has led investigators to believe the attack on the US Capitol was not just a protest that spiraled out of control, a federal law enforcement official says.
Among the evidence the FBI is examining are indications that some participants at the Trump rally at the Ellipse, outside the White House, left the event early, perhaps to retrieve items to be used in the assault on the Capitol.
A team of investigators and prosecutors are also focused on the command and control aspect of the attack, looking at travel and communications records to determine if they can build a case that is similar to a counterterrorism investigation, the official said. CNN's Evan Perez reports.

    1. @Liss Clark I’m I’m sorry, Liss, but Trump has been lying to you. There was no fraud, Trump did not win the election, im Canadian, so we have a vested interest in what happens in the US, but can look in from the outside. From where im standing, Trump incited an insurrection. There isn’t s single leader around the world who thinks that the election was fraudulent. Talking about Trump isnt touchy here- every single person I know thinks that Trump is trying to be a dictator, that his mental instability and narcissism are extremely dangerous. The Republicans wanted to bask in his reflection, so they went along with his outrageous lies. This is the consequence of long-term pathological lying. Here’s a fact that he mis quotes all the time- the US one of the highestCOVID rates in the world. They’re hanging out at the bottom of the list with Brazil. Trump puts his money before people. I urge you to step back and decide what kind of country you want to live in- supporting Trump means you support an Oligarchy. Are you sure thats what you want? Is your life better now than it was four years ago? He’s conning you, Liss. You and half the American population are following a cult leader. I encourage you to step back and re-analyze the situation. Trump has lied and lied, putting lies on top of more lies. Each little lie slowly becomes accepted, and then built upon. It’s easy to be conned, and you aren’t alone. But please do some critical thinking on these things- whats the most likely scenario for what is going on. Re-assess your assumptions, and see if you end up at the same place. Americans are fundamentally honest people. I do hope that when the Trump mystique finally lifts that it won’t be too hard to fix.

    1. @Kathleen Wyatt I wouldn’t work around that den of coyotes without packing a gun either. Non of them are trustworthy. Scoundrels, almost all of them.

  1. We have only begun to see the depths of “inside involvement”:

    The FBI has brought on “Public Corruption Prosecutors” which are only used in cases involving a public official.

    They are going on after public officials. Without a doubt.

    1. For all those who wanted to see politicians hang, they’re going to get an ironic surprise when it’s the metaphorical hanging of the Q-Anon Republicans. Turns out the real “Deep State Swamp” was the friends they made along the way!

    2. Pre riot tours given by Congress persons reconnaissance tours if you will are treasonous to say the least!!!

    3. @Rob4circleoflife Exactly, Rob, same thign I was going to say, as I said above. Yes, certain Congresspeople gave them tours to show them where stuff like that was located. They planned to kill people; I read it on Facebook.

    1. @MilkCow Ok, so that’s how Q Anon logic works. You do realize that every actionable plan follows a series of steps. For instance, a small inner circle of planners concoct a plot, recruit other sympathetic actors to carry out recon missions and prepare tactical and logistical capabilities, and finally whip up a frenzy of angry hillbillies still mad about the Civil War, bring them to DC with the promise of glory, and send their dumbasses on the stupidest errand of their lives as a distraction from the real coup plotters who were organized and and had narrow objectives and targets. If you need more help in deciphering the real world let me know, but l might have to start charging eventually.

  2. My Congresswoman, Lauren Boebert here in Colorado actually posted online about the whereabouts of Nancy Pelosi when she got moved to safety… There has been people here demanding her resignation…

    1. JC, who F’n cares, our government doesn’t protect us, they let die and suffer just to get that seat and they will all have a seat in hell

    2. I looked up this Lauren Boebert as well as Marjorie Taylor Greene. What a couple of crazies! And that is being nice. I cannot not believe we have elected officials acting and speaking like these two “women”. Gross.

  3. Was it planned ? Well, they turned up at a specific place and time and with a similar plan. So I’m going with “maybe??”

    1. Right, because everybody forgets where they sit down their pipe bombs.. so I’ll going with, Mmm maybe

  4. If the brightest minds in our country wonder if this was a planned attack, explains why we’re in such a situation.

    1. I could see them plotting it on TheDonald, describing everything from timing, having weapons shipped just outside of DC for pickup later after they get off the plane, planning to do a Handmaid’s Tale, killing all the “bad” politicians, holding others hostage, etc. If this is not known by people whose job it is to know, then I worry that we’re doomed. So naive. And I still see people who I thought were sensible downplaying this whole thing.

  5. “I’ve been impeached like nobody’s ever seen. People are saying they’ve never seen anything like it!”

    1. @Mimzy Jinx Then you get what I am saying. So why are you taking a quote from Biden out of context? Are you sure what your implying is what he was saying?

      I’m aware of racially motivated crimes. Around the time Trump got elected he kept saying negative things about Muslims, also at that time I had people mistaken me for Muslim and jerk their car towards me, force me off sidewalks, glare me down to intimidate me and make comments towards me. I am not a Muslim, I am a Christian woman who likes to wear a scarf on her head in winter and doing it for over 10 years with out a problem until 2017 after Trump started saying things about them. All of a sudden I had a target on my back.

    2. @Mimzy Jinx Losing is hard isn’t it?
      Stop pouting – it changes nothing but increases the world supply of schadenfreud.
      But thanks for the giggles.

    3. @Mimzy Jinx
      First rule of propaganda – charge others with what you are doing.
      You Vladimirs need some new schtick.

  6. The fact that the military called it a seditious insurrection means these guys are screwed. There were reports of active military and Nat’l Guard in the crowd. So in addition to FBI, ATF, etc they can now expect military intelligence to be breathing down their backs.

    1. @Joseph Jr McNamara They’re subject to the UCMJ, which will not look kindly upon those who swore a solemn lifetime oath to defend the constitution, then stabbed America in the back. No nice cushy Club Fed for those ones.

    2. @Mario we already bear being north korea when they and should find them guilty a d it’s the firing squad people will make them martyr’s… We are already in that area.

    3. @kalebswager uhhh that was boogaloo and proud boys , what rock you been under cukt member ? Oh thats right , reality isnt the world yall live in right ?

  7. How does Trump’s “protesters come to the rallies with bags of soup.” Defense hold up against people coming to rallies with pitch forks, guns and tactical gear

    1. @Justin Donaldson Google is your friend. They arrested a man who had Molotov cocktails in his truck designed to stick to the skin while burning. In addition he had guns and ammunition.

    1. @Glenn McCuen She gave a tour of the capitol to some of the people who later stormed it and she tweeted in real time that they were moving Nancy Pelosi.

    2. @Glenn McCuen Also, before it went down she tweeted “Today is 1776”, and then she came in and her bag say off the alarm or she wouldn’t go through it. Then she refused to let them look in her bag.

    3. @Glenn McCuen You’ll have to read the news reports of her tour. Go to her twitter feed at around 2:15 on the 6th is when she tweeted about moving Pelosi. If she deleted it, it’s all over the internet, just Google it.

    1. Yall ACTUALLY did this a few months ago remember? Well maybe not at the capitol but….You remember that? Blm?Antifa? Burning looting? No? Yeeeess you do. But your a hypocrite soooo….

  8. If you show up for a demonstration in “tactical gear” you either have a nefarious plan or you are insane. Either way you should be singled out and contained before whatever “tactical situation” you were fantasising about actually happens.

    1. Well put. You have that rare talent of being able to put yourself in the minds of these people.

      I do too, but it’s only because I used to think like them myself. Ten years ago I would have swallowed the whole load of conspiracy theories about the election, deep state, and would probably have considered Trump to be a hero.

      Then I grew up and in stead of spending 5 hours a day on worrying about muslims, leftists and media lies I put my efforts on becoming a chemical engineer. It’s probably harder to be a confused kid now than it was 9-10 years ago back when I was starting out my adulthood. The thing that concerns me the most is that most of these people are not kids at all. Can they ever bounce back?

    1. Many people were warned, including Pelosi. With the impeachment, those questions will not get asked. That came up in the house as they argued the impeachment

      D.M.

  9. Yep. I said it was an “inside job” because it was waaaaay too easy for them to overtake the Capitol AND the amount of time it took for them to do so.
