Evidence shows Republican leaders directed occupation of Capitol, and provided details for attack

Evidence shows Republican leaders directed occupation of Capitol, and provided details for attack

"SNIP.....

On Tuesday evening, Democratic Rep. Mikie Sherrill indicated that some Republican legislators had been directly involved in helping insurgents plan the Jan. 6 assault on the Capitol. As all the pieces begin to fall together, it’s becoming clearer that Republican officials—from state and local party leaders to members of Congress—were not just involved in encouraging the insurrection through spreading lies about election fraud, but assisted the coup plotters with information on how to best go about causing harm. That includes how best to capture members of Congress considered enemies of Donald Trump.

Evidence is building up that Reps. Mo Brooks, Andy Biggs, and Paul Gosar were directly involved in planning events on Jan. 6. Others, like Rep. Lauren Boebert, appear to have not just encouraged insurrection actors in their assault but provided real-time updates on the location of terrorist targets. Now, following Sherrill’s accusations that some Republicans had helped the insurrectionists by leading them on “reconnaissance” of the Capitol in advance of the assault, there appears to be more evidence that not only were insurgents provided with information on how best to carry out their assault, they were doing exactly what Republicans asked of them.

One day before insurgents took the Capitol and went in search of congressional hostages, that is exactly what Republican organizations across the nation told them to do. As Media Matters shows, multiple Republican organizations were directly calling on those attending the Jan. 6 event to “Occupy the Capitol.” That message came from organizations in (at least) Texas, Oregon, Georgia, and North Carolina. 

...

The flyer passed around urging this occupation makes multiple references to 1776, a reference that was repeated by Boebert on Jan. 6.

2. Thus far I have not heard boo about this on mainstream network news

This is huge, and I hope it gets adequate attention. I'm shocked quite frankly, and I know I shouldn't be, but I didn't suspect any of them would go this far.

4. Jake Tapper just said there were no tours of the Capitol because of

Covid, at this point in time, so to be giving a 'reconnaisance' or any tour is doubly suspicious. CNN

7. With any directions to terrorists, I bet there were no instructions to keep all Congress members

safe, order or escort them out, or anything else like that. If not, then they were planning on taking hostages.

9. I read Rep. Lauren Boebert was given a gun permit. NI think they should immediately take that away

because she is putting people in danger with her part in the insurrection, on the way out the door.

13. This is how an organized criminal enterprise acts

Qualifying statements with "I would not be displeased if..." or "I wish someone would..." and then claiming they had nothing to do with the outcome.

Then the wiretaps, photographs, videos, and communication to organize the crime have to be obtained and appropriate RICO Act indictments made.

Doesn't help when your co-conspirators are doing live documentation to social media of your so-called "alleged" mob activity
