    “Williams advanced to the Rotunda where he celebrated with other rioters and smoked marijuana. When the police tried to force Williams out of the Rotunda, he joined with other rioters and actively resisted and mocked the police. He also stole water bottles United States Capitol Police officials had stored to be used for decontamination if officers were hit with chemical irritants.

    Williams recorded himself and bragged, “We just stormed the stairs of the Capitol, pushed the cops back and were maced and pepper-sprayed, and hit everybody. Desperate times, desperate measures …Trump 2020 motherfucker,”

    In a Facebook post three days after the riot, Williams called himself an “Operation Swamp Storm veteran” and referred to Jan. 6 as the “proudest day of my life.” Williams later boasted that he had “absolutely no remorse” in a Facebook post.

    In June, a jury convicted Williams. today he was sentenced to five years in prison



    More than 870 people have been charged with federal crimes for the conduct on Jan. 6.

    The J6 defendants that don’t take the deal and go to trial instead are getting some hefty prison time.

    Many people have claimed it couldn’t have been an insurrection because no body was armed. Of course they were - it’s just that almost nobody was searched. This guy was armed and dropped his weapon in the melee and reported it stolen in case Antifa found it and shot someone. Adjudicate his ass.

    He plead not guilty and chose to go to a jury. They found him guilty now he’ll get more prison time because of it.


    “A federal jury
    on Friday convicted a QAnon believer who chased down U.S. Eugene Goodman Capitol Police Officer on Jan. 6, 2021, finding the defendant guilty on all charges against him.

    He had been released in a high-intensity pretrial program, but a judge ordered him detained again after he violated the conditions of his release by live-streaming an event hosted MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell, who has promoted conspiracy theories about the 2020 election.“


    This is the guy wearing a Q shirt, leading the mob with the cop backing away.

    Bombshell: J6 staffer told 60 Minutes White House switchboard called rioter on Jan. 6 (msn.com)

    You get a real 'a-ha' moment when you see that the White House switchboard had connected to a rioter's phone while it's happening," said Riggleman tp 60 Minutes' Bill Whitaker. "That's a big, pretty big 'a-ha' moment."

    He added that "I only know one end of that call. I don't know the White House end, which I believe is more important. But the thing is the American people need to know that there are link connections that need to be explored more."


    This comes after a series of damning revelations about the involvement and support of former President Donald Trump in encouraging the people storming the Capitol.

    One of the biggest allegations to come out of the public hearings by the select committee was the claim by former White House staffer Cassidy Hutchinson that Trump demanded the rioters be allowed onto the premises because "they're not hear to hurt me" — and that he lunged at his security detail in the car after they refused to take him to the Capitol to join the attackers.

    Of course there was never one except perhaps for the patently illegal failed attempt to substitute phony pro-Trump electors and yet his sheep like followers continue to believe him. And let's not forget Republican politicians who support the narrative although the overwhelming majority of them know better but do not have the balls to stand up to the Orange God.

    One wonders why a defendant whose crimes were videotaped would plead not guilty. Was he expecting some presidential action to save him? Sorry Q-nut, no deus ex machina for you.

    Did the Oath Keepers have Secret Service contacts or did Rhodes brag about this falsely in order to make himself seem important or……. ?

    I thought this thread was going to be about a day in the life of D.C.

    But it seems to be about the low IQ riot, of 1/6/22, which dispersed when ordered to, and in which a Trump supporter was killed.

    sounds like the Capital Police were as infiltrated by MAGA as teh SS was. This is sad, scary stuff when a cult movement can compromise our security. Thankfully the leaders of the military were above this

    According to the Politico report, "The author made surreptitious recordings of his interactions with the likes of House GOP Leader Kevin McCarthy, national Fraternal Order of Police President Patrick Yoes, and leaders of Fanone’s own local, among others."

    Lindsey Graham and Kevin McCarthy busted by Michael Fanone in tell-all book (msn.com)

    "Thus we see McCarthy, finally taking a meeting with Fanone, fellow Jan, 6 hero Harry Dunn, and the mother of late Capitol Police officer Brian Sicknick, lamely try to run out the clock on their conversation. We see Graham snap at Gladys Sicknick that 'we’re going to end the meeting right now' if she keeps speaking ill of Trump," the report continues before adding, "And we see Yoes telling Fanone that he’s waiting for direction from the local lodge about Jan. 6 advocacy — and the leader of that lodge telling Fanone that 'I’m hesitant to start putting out information one way or the other about January 6' because of political divisions among membership."

    Fanone also recounts how poorly he has been treated by his some of his fellow officers, with Schaffer writing, "In a meeting he chronicles at the union’s D.C. hall, Dunn is scolded after asking why the leadership hadn’t defended officers against the claim that the shooting of Ashli Babbitt was murder. A local honcho, meanwhile, gives Fanone grief for appearing on CNN 'when they talk bad about law enforcement.' And Yoes, to Fanone’s amazement, tells the room that Trump, at FOP insistence, had in fact told the crowd to stand down that day."

    In an interview with Schaffer, Fanone explained, "In reality, what it is is Trumpism,” before adding, "And it’s a loyalty to Donald Trump because he says things like, ‘We love our law enforcement officers.’ And, you know, there’s a lot of police officers at the Metropolitan Police Department and other law enforcement agencies that participated in the defense of the U.S. Capitol on January 6, that still do not accept the reality of what January 6th was.”
