As the House meets for the second time in thirteen months to impeach the sitting president, some disturbing information is coming to light.
Ali Alexander, a right wing extremist and organizer of the Stop the Steal rally that provided cover for the coup attempt, has named three specific Congressmen who "helped him." - Reps. Andy Biggs (Ariz.), Mo Brooks (Ala.) and Paul A. Gosar (Ariz.), They of course, deny any knowledge or relationship, despite their presence at multiple previous rallies organized by Alexander, including Jan. 6, and tweets from their accounts signaling Alexander out for his patriotism and friendship. (Alexander also said that VP elect Harris is not a "real" Black American.) LINK
Rep. Mikie Sherrill (D-NJ 11), a former federal prosecutor and decorated Navy pilot, told her constituents in a FB live event last night that she observed, "members of Congress [with] groups coming through the Capitol ... on Jan. 5 — a reconnaissance for the next day." She also affirmed her intent "to see they are held accountable, and if necessary, ensure that they don't serve in Congress." It is worth noting here that the Capitol has been closed to the public since March 2020. How and why were members of Congress escorting GROUPS around the building? LINK
The FBI arrested Lonnie Coffman from the great state of Alabama with a truck filled with weapons including guns and molotov cocktails, among other things. He reportedly asked if they "had found the bombs yet." Also in the truck - a list of good guys and bad guys that highlighted a federal judge and Muslim members of Congress. Also found - personal contact info for show host Mark Levin, Fox News' Sean Hannity and Sen. Ted Cruz, (R-Texas). LINK
The seditious rioters planned their actions once the Capitol was breached. They helpfully posted video of themselves on Twitter. They possessed detailed information of the building and talked of accessing lower levels through specific rooms that are not common knowledge. There are also multiple reports that even more specific plans were mentioned repeatedly on Parler prior to the coup. Since Palrer has been hacked and archived - I'm sure that information will be available soon. LINK
Multiple Republican members of Congress have confided in Democratic colleagues that they want to vote to impeach but they have received credible death threats against not only themselves, but also their families. LINK
So, let's review. The seditious rioters have direct links to sitting members of Congress. The same rioters had detailed schematics of the Capitol building that are not widely available, including of the underground escape tunnels.Congressional members were observed giving tours to GROUPS of people in violation of the COVID safety measures the day prior to the attack.
This is difficult to process. It is difficult to look at the overwhelming amount of information pointing to the complicity, if not direct conspiratorial involvement, of sitting members of Congress in the coup attempt. Drawing connections between unrelated incidents is how we as a nation got to this place but the information is pretty damning.
How we as a nation navigate this maelstrom will define us. Will we purge our White House, our Congress, and our society, of violent, seditious fascists and bigots? If we don't, what will we have left? We will no longer be a functioning democratic republic. We will be a shell of a nation, a fractured shell of what could have been.
Members of the Republican caucus are standing on the House floor, equivocating about the actions of the president on January 6. There is no middle ground on this question - you stand with democracy or you stand with fascism.
