Maybe Storming The Capitol Wasn't Such A Good Idea

Only a moron would assert that none of us can know a poster's stance after years of reading posts. I know exactly who said that.

Do you have a better way to determine if an event constitutes an insurrection than a conviction for insurrection?

Me three. The penalties are double the max penalty for insurrection though I suspect he will only see half that.
Me, four. The definition of the crime for which he was convicted lays bare just what he attempted. Dog Deux is just playing the MAGA version of "what the definition of is is".

He can crow "no insurrection" all he wants. Folks are going to jail for trying to overthrow the government. Hanging onto that one word is all he has.

No shit.

Dog, over 955 charged for 1/6. Those are the insurrectors. 165 have pled guilty already. Nobody thinks all those hundreds/thousands in the breach are co-conspirators, and 165 of the real heavy hitters are still in jail. Your argument is caca del toro. Why not fade out for a few more months?

Proud Boys want DC police officer to testify in their defense at upcoming trial​


Source: CNN

Lawyers for Proud Boys leader Enrique Tarrio revealed in court Friday that they plan to argue during their December seditious conspiracy trial that the far-right extremist group was in touch with law enforcement about their plans to rally in Washington, DC, on January 6, 2021.

Tarrio spoke with Metropolitan Police Lt. Shane Lamond several times about the group’s plans to attend rallies in the district around the time of the 2020 election, according to Nayib Hassan, an attorney for Tarrio. Hassan said he wants to call Lamond as a defense witness.

“How can there be sedition if they’re informing law enforcement” of their plans? Hassan asked District Judge Timothy Kelly during a pretrial conference Friday.

Hassan said the officer had been threatened by the Justice Department with obstruction charges if he decides to testify to communications he had with Tarrio because his testimony “would completely and totally destroy [the DOJ’s] case.”

So... basically, some police officers aided and abetted insurrectionists. News at 11. They weren't informing "law enforcement", they were communicating with one of their operatives within the force. If they were informing law enforcement they would have communicated their plans to invade the Capitol Building to the highest levels of the Capitol Police. Such a weak argument.

This is a no-brainer! If some Capitol Police were complicit, or aided and abetted, they should be charged alongside the insurrectionists.

I think what we are hearing is another lawyer talking above their capabilities to defend. The idea being put forth is original, but I want to hear it from that lieutenant.

Crazy. Anyone else noticed that this fool never gets called out for this stupid shit? I would really like for at least one journalist to demand proof from him.
