Today is the day for Jacob Wohl's big press conference. Who will be there?

1599 Colonial Terrace (in Rosslyn) at high noon.

Despite several press releases, the Project 1599 Telegram has only 94 subscribers. People are less interested in this nonsense than ever

4. The press conferences are usually held at Jack Burkman's townhouse in Rosslyn.

Will Sommer shows up for them. I haven't seen any activity on his Twitter account yet.

Wait; I spoke too soon.

Will Sommer Retweeted

The Arlington hotel where right-wing activists Jacob Wohl and Jack Burkman are slated to give their press conference was lied to by the duo - who told the hotel they are holding a “book signing.”

8. Hoaxers Jacob Wohl and Jack Burkman hold bogus presser, are permanently banned from hotel

Still not as funny as when Wohl claimed Mueller "bussed in a load of protesters to attack us" and pointed across the street to a group of women with luggage waiting for the 2:30 Daytripper bus to NYC.



Hoaxers Jacob Wohl and Jack Burkman hold bogus presser, are permanently banned from hotel

After launching murky charges at Gaetz and Giuliani, right-wing hucksters get the heave-ho from D.C.-area hotel

Blundering right-wing activists and smear merchants Jacob Wohl and Jack Burkman held a press conference at the Hyatt Centric in Arlington, Virginia, on Thursday, where they launched meritless allegations against Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani and Rep. Matt Gaetz, the embattled Florida Republican. Since both Gaetz and Giuliani face abundant legal difficulties in the real world, the fact that Wohl and Burkman had nothing to offer but spurious rumors was almost remarkable in itself. But that was not the duo's only largest problem. Now Burkman and Wohl have been banned from holding press events at the Arlington Hyatt, a hotel official told Salon.

A manager of the Hyatt Centric property said that the venue's operating team had no knowledge of Wohl and Burkman's extensive past history of scams and schemes, and that the two right-wing operatives had told hotel staff they planned to hold a "book signing," not a press conference. "I'm upset they lied to me," the manager told Salon.

The manager said that Burkman "got into my face and demanded to rent a room" during a personal visit to the hotel several days earlier. According to the hotel employee, Burkman brought a bundle of cash with him and asked the manager to take it on the spot as payment for a conference room.

Asked why he and Wohl had lied to hotel staff about holding a "book signing," Burkman told Salon: "I never lie. I only tell the truth," before describing himself as a "beacon" for the truth. Burkman and Wohl currently face felony charges in several states for a robocall scheme apparently designed to discourage voting by mail and depress voter turnout in Black neighborhoods during the 2020 election.

Not to give Wohl and Burkman any more attention... But the questioning from Ford and Zach (not me) is glorious.
