(TeaParty.org Exclusive) – We were told at deafening volume for weeks after the January 6th breach of the U.S. Capitol Building that the event was a “riot,” an “armed insurrection,” an “attack on the citadel of Democracy.”
Yet…the prosecution’s case against the Capitol Hill protesters is falling apart as we speak.
The mainstream media’s narrative about the events of that day seem to have fueled initial law enforcement theories about whether it had been pre-planned and what, precisely, took place.
In reality, none of the facts needed to build their narrative—or case—hold up.
As The Gateway Pundit points out:
·The protesters were not actually armed
·No firearms were confiscated from protesters at the Capitol
·The only gun fired was by a Capitol Hill Police Lieutenant who killed an unarmed civilian
·There is no evidence of any coordinated effort to take over the building or murder lawmakers
·President Trump openly and firmly called for peaceful protest
·The Oath Keepers did not plan an armed insurgency
·The total estimated damages of around $100K-$1M pale in comparison to the $2 BILLION in damages caused by the Black Lives Matter/Antifa riots of the summer
· Hundreds of the protesters who entered the Capitol were waved in by members of the Capitol Hill Police
Now, the outlet continues, federal prosecutors are in a bind as the case seems to be falling down around them.
On Friday, the feds requested 60 more days to build their case against the protesters.
Who thinks that they actually have anything substantial against anyone? They simply don’t have the evidence they need to build a case, it is clear.
Axios reported that on Friday morning, federal prosecutors submitted a filing on Friday morning requesting a 60-day delay for a series of cases linked to the January 6th riot which they described as “likely the most complex investigation ever prosecuted by the Department of Justice.”
Why, because they’re trying to feather up evidence against law-abiding Americans who weren’t involved in any type of coordinated attack, whatsoever?
Over 300 people have been charged in connection with the attack, which FBI Director Christopher Wray had described as “domestic terrorism”—although he denies Antifa had anything to do with the attack despite a known organizer of Antifa having been arrested and charged with his involvement.
Defendants have been charged with crimes ranging from assault, trespassing, and destruction of government property to “conspiratorial activity” beginning prior to January 6th.
“The Justice Department expects that at least 100 more individuals will be charged, according to the filing,” Axios noted.
