That’s kinda funny since it was considered a conspiracy theory back then when people claimed it.
People claimed that all the rioters were invited in by the US Capitol Police.

That was the conspiracy theory.

Not that a single US Capitol Police officer encouraged a participant in the riots to delete social media posts showing participation (by the rioter, not the officer) in the riot....the next day.

US Capitol Police officer pleads not guilty to obstruction of justice charges in connection with January 6 (msn.com)

"Riley was not on duty inside the Capitol building during the attack, prosecutors say, but in the K-9 unit and responded to reports of an explosive device on Capitol Hill that day."
There are videos of capitol police calmly walking up to barriers and moving them aside and waving people in.

Hmmmm
I'm guessing it's standard protocol for high level Department of Justice Officials to not discuss high profile ongoing investigations (looking at you James Comey) so it's not surprising Garland didn't want to talk to a reporter.

That being said the guy in the video didn't want to talk because he said it would incriminate him and he proceeded to incriminate himself alot. I'm guessing he is in jail right now and will be there for a while. Pro tip-if you are knowingly going to commit an illegal act it's not a smart move to provide the prosecution with video evidence of you committing the illegal act. That dude will be lucky to plea out and will be unlucky if federal prosecutors want to make an example. It would have been way smarter for him to walk away when he sees cameras rolling. Play stupid games I guess.

Wait. The dude in the video isn't in jail and Ali Alexander is just as free? That's bull. You have someone with video evidence agreeing to insurrection and someone who allegedly coordinated it and neither have been federally prosecuted which a bunch of dumbasses who wandered into the Capitol are facing federal prison? That's messed up. Let's go after the mid level people and higher ups here.

Watch the video. He incited the crowd and the crowd replied “no!” Then they all start pointing at him and chanting “FED FED FED FED”.
Massie is implying that’s an FBI agent.

With all this talk about Jan 6 it seems like this is news worthy:

https://nypost.com/2021/08/20/fbi-finds-little-evidence-capitol-siege-was-organized-plot/

FBI finds little evidence Capitol siege was organized plot
The FBI has found little evidence that the Jan 6. Capitol siege was an organized plot by far-right groups or Trump supporters to overturn the presidential election, a new reports say.

More than 570 alleged participants have been rounded up by the feds since the siege but multiple sources told Reuters on Friday the FBI hasn’t found proof they were engaged in a “grand scheme”.

“Ninety to 95 percent of these are one-off cases,” a former law enforcement source said.

If Mike Pence had done what Trump asked of him, then you would see the coordination. Thank goodness the VP had scruples.

Thank God Dan Qualye (so) told Pence to do the right thing when Pence was looking for someone to tell it was ok to ignore the law.

This doesn’t look good for Ali Alexander. Sounds like it could drag Meadows, Greene, Boebert, Brooks, and a few others into the thick of it as well. No mention of Bannonnor Stone, but that doesn’t mean they weren’t otherwise involved. I’m a little concerned the Democrats are playing this out slowly so it hits during mid-terms. Meanwhile, there’s a portion of the public who see the lack of legal action as an indicator that we should move on. The timing may backfire.
Well if the Rolling Stone is reporting it it must be true.
You’re right. We should rely on credible sources, like Breitbart. Rolling Stone has a left bias, but they are known for being factual in their reporting.
Planning meetings about the protest or planning meetings about storming the capitol? Those are two extremely different things.
There’s a bit of both in the article. They are two different things, but they’re not mutually exclusive either. Ali Alexander was mentioned for doing a lot of the coordinating of an event by the Capitol that led to the attack. They did mention Mark Meadows was warned what Alexander was doing and how it could lead to violence.

Report says GOP rep Gossar promised blanket pardons to them beforehand. Blanket pardons would not be needed for a simple protest...

Business Insider and The Hill (which are both quality publications) are also reporting this story. Which would indicate they've confirmed the info.

Reps can't grant pardons can they? And even if Gossar said the pardons would come from the president, he was going to be out of office in about 3 weeks, not much time to be investigated, charged, then pardoned.

If this is true, it's just a new level of stupidity by any alleged conspirators to actually believe such a promise.

Out of office in 3 weeks? What are you talking about? He was just about to start his 2nd term!
