Reports indicate pre-planning in Capitol riot, suggests Trump didn’t incite unrest

House Democrats have rushed headlong into another impeachment effort against President Donald Trump for having allegedly incited the riot that occurred on Jan. 6 at the U.S. Capitol building.

Evidence suggests that the disruptive vandalism and violence that took place had been planned for several days or even weeks in advance, however, which undermines the fundamental premise put forward by Democrats that Trump’s words provoked a riotous response from his supporters, The Washington Times reported.

New information

The Times noted that court documents for some individuals charged in the Jan. 6 incident revealed that at least some of the participants had made preparations well ahead of the event.

Separate but related reports show there was some measure of pre-planning and coordination on social media in advance of the assault on the Capitol. It appears that local law enforcement had been warned ahead of time by other agencies about what might — and indeed did — occur.

Just the News reported this week that both the FBI and NYPD have come forward to reveal that each entity issued warnings to Capitol Police and other agencies in Washington, D.C. about plans for the disruption that had been discovered.

The FBI had also preemptively moved to counter-disrupt the travel plans to D.C. for some suspects.

On top of that, the top federal prosecutor in D.C. is pursuing conspiracy charges against some participants, meaning that the riot almost certainly wasn’t a mere protest that spiraled out of control because of what Trump said to the crowd but had been planned ahead of time to take place no matter what.

Spontaneously incite a planned riot?

Donald Trump Jr., the president’s eldest son, tweeted Thursday, “If these federal law enforcement agencies had prior knowledge that this was a planned attack then POTUS didn’t incite anything. If he didn’t incite anything then Nancy Pelosi and the Dems used impeachment on yet another sham political witch-hunt.”

A similar message was put forward by former NYPD Commissioner Bernard Kerik, who told Just the News, “By all accounts, the FBI, NYPD and other authorities did exactly what they should have done by conducting interviews and making notifications to the Washington D.C. authorities.”

“If these reports are true, you cannot incite a group that already pre-planned acts of violence by days or weeks, and it raises serious questions as to what security precautions were taken at the Capitol as a result,” Kerik added.

Just the News noted that all of this new information about the coordinated and pre-planned nature of the Capitol riot raises three rather pertinent questions, namely, how could Trump incite an attack that was pre-planned and actually began before his speech concluded; what did House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), other congressional leaders, and D.C. authorities know and when did they know it; and, crucially, was there anyone inside Congress or local law enforcement who helped facilitate entry into the building for the mob of protesters and rioters?

“The more that comes out about this, the more we realize this was a massively pre-planned event, and so the impeachment articles have less sway,” The Federalist’s Mollie Hemingway told Fox News. “And the more people calm down and start thinking clearly, it seems like we’re just experiencing yet another one of these events where the media rush to conclusions.”

    exists.

    but I never discovered any interesting article like yours.
    It is lovely value enough for me. In my opinion, if all site owners and bloggers made excellent content material as you probably did, the internet
    might be much more helpful than ever before.

  6. Your style is really unique compared to other people I have read stuff from.
    I appreciate you for posting when you have the
    opportunity, Guess I will just book mark this blog.

  7. Hmm it looks like your website ate my first comment (it was extremely long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I
    had written and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog.
    I as well am an aspiring blog writer but I’m still new to the whole thing.
    Do you have any tips and hints for newbie blog writers?
    I’d genuinely appreciate it.

  8. Great article Dawn. Beautiful. You caught the words
    from these jokers themselves. It honestly makes me
    cringe to hear the crap coming out of his mouth. Skip is dead.
    I would have slammed him simply asking him whether or not we are
    independent contractors or employees. It seems that SkipTheDishes is finally slipping into complete desperation. Just over one year ago there was no such thing as acceptance ratings on the
    Skip platform as there should not be. At that time, I was
    slamming DoorDash for how they were screwing drivers.
    Looks like it’s Skip that’s doing that now. I want to see them just die.
    Just crumble. How they exploit particularly
    new drivers. It is disgusting.

    Here is my blog Skip The Dishes Voucher
