CA Man Who Threatened Congressman's Family Lied About Being AF Vet & Alameda County Sheriff


Quote:
The story of a whackjob who sent threatening text messages to family of Congressman Hakeem Jeffries (NY-Cool has taken an interesting turn. The story began on Tuesday...

Air Force Times

NEW YORK — A California man disgruntled about the presidential election result was arrested Tuesday on charges alleging he threatened family members of a New York congressman and a journalist in text messages sent during the attack on the Capitol, authorities said.

Robert Lemke, 35, was arrested in Bay Point, California, on charges filed in Manhattan federal court. He was scheduled to make an initial appearance in federal court in Northern California on Wednesday.

A criminal complaint charging him with threatening interstate communications said he identifies himself on Facebook as a former captain in the U.S. Air Force and a retired sergeant with the Alameda County Sheriff’s Office in California.

Details emerged on Wednesday...

Politico

“Your brother is putting your entire family at risk with his lies and other words. We are armed and nearby your house,” one of the messages read, according to the complaint. “You had better have a word with him. We are not far from his either. Your words have consequences. Stop telling lies; Biden did not win, he will not be president.”

Jeffries identified himself on Tuesday as the lawmaker in the complaint. Speaking with MSNBC’s Chris Hayes, Jeffries said his brother received the message just as members were being evacuated from the Capitol as armed rioters stormed the building to stop the certification of President Joe Biden’s election. President Donald Trump was impeached the following week on a charge of inciting the insurrection, and several of the rioters publicly said they were motivated to storm the Capitol because of Trump.

“What was chilling in the message that was received is that this individual said, ‘Stop telling lies. Biden did not win. He will not be president,’” Jeffries told Hayes on Tuesday. “And so he was radicalized by the big lie that Donald Trump told and that has been supported by so many Republicans in the House and the Senate.”

Today the story took a somewhat unexpected turn…

Air Force Times

The Air Force said Wednesday that it cannot find records supporting the service claims of a man who is accused of threatening the family members of a New York congressman and a journalist.

Robert Lemke, 35, of California, identified himself on Facebook as a former Air Force captain and a retired sergeant with the Alameda County Sheriff’s Office, according to a criminal complaint.

(snip)

The Alameda County Sheriff’s Office in California likewise denied Lemke’s claim of service with them on Tuesday.

Completely stupid and a baldfaced liar just like his hero. Who could have guessed?

There's a growing body of evidence of tacit support within the Trump administration. Why did Trump replace the top staff within the Department of Defense and Justice with his administration winding down? Was he intending to defang the FBI investigations of impending white nationalist violence in support of overturning the election? Was it intended to hamstring any response by the National Guard to attacks on the Capitol? That is what happened.

When die-hard supporters of President Donald Trump showed up at rally point “Cowboy” in Louisville on the morning of Jan. 5, they found the shopping mall’s parking lot was closed to cars, so they assembled their 50 or so vehicles outside a nearby Kohl’s department store. Hundreds of miles away in Columbia, S.C., at a mall designated rally point “Rebel,” other Trump supporters gathered to form another caravan to Washington. A similar meetup — dubbed “Minuteman” — was planned for Springfield, Mass.

That same day, FBI personnel in Norfolk were increasingly alarmed by the online conversations they were seeing, including warlike talk around the convoys headed to the nation’s capital. One map posted online described the rally points, declaring them a “MAGA Cavalry To Connect Patriot Caravans to StopTheSteal in D.C.” Another map showed the U.S. Congress, indicating tunnels connecting different parts of the complex. The map was headlined, “CREATE PERIMETER,” according to the FBI report, which was reviewed by The Washington Post.

“Be ready to fight. Congress needs to hear glass breaking, doors being kicked in,” read one posting, according to the report.


41 minutes of fear: A video timeline from inside the Capitol siege
The Post obtained hours of video footage, some exclusively, and placed it within a digital 3-D model of the building. (TWP)
FBI agents around the country are working to unravel the various motives, relationships, goals and actions of the hundreds of Trump supporters who stormed the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6. Some inside the bureau have described the Capitol riot investigation as their biggest case since the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks, and a top priority of the agents’ work is to determine the extent to which that violence and chaos was preplanned and coordinated.

Self-styled militia members planned days in advance to storm the Capitol, court papers say

Investigators caution there is an important legal distinction between gathering like-minded people for a political rally — which is protected by the First Amendment — and organizing an armed assault on the seat of American government. The task now is to distinguish which people belong in each category, and who played key roles in committing or coordinating the violence.

Video and court filings, for instance, describe how several groups of men that include alleged members of the Proud Boys appear to engage in concerted action, converging on the West Front of the Capitol just before 1 p.m., near the Peace Monument at First Street NW and Pennsylvania Avenue NW. Different factions of the crowd appear to coalesce, move forward and chant under the direction of different leaders before charging at startled police staffing a pedestrian gate, all in the matter of a few minutes.

An indictment Friday night charged a member of the Proud Boys, Dominic Pezzola, 43, of Rochester, N.Y., with conspiracy, saying his actions showed “planning, determination, and coordination.” Another alleged member of the Proud Boys, William Pepe, 31, of Beacon, N.Y., also was charged with conspiracy.

Minutes before the crowd surge, at 12:45 p.m., police received the first report of a pipe bomb behind the Republican National Committee headquarters at the opposite, southeast side of the U.S. Capitol campus. The device and another discovered shortly afterward at Democratic National Committee headquarters included end caps, wiring, timers and explosive powder, investigators have said.

Pipe bombs found near Capitol on Jan. 6 are believed to have been placed the night before

Some law enforcement officials have suggested the pipe bombs may have been a deliberate distraction meant to siphon law enforcement away from the Capitol building at the crucial moment.


After an attempted coup, collusion by Trump appointees and Republicans in Congress, and support for violence by many Republican officials, it is clear that the Republicans in Congress have no intention to divorce themselves from Trump and his treason.

'A Sad Moment': Michigan Gov. Whitmer Responds to State GOP Chair Calling Her a Witch

CDC "deeply concerned" about COVID pandemic trajectory as cases rise again

Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer, a Democrat, slammed state GOP Chair Ron Weiser after he described her and two other top female Michigan officials as "witches," suggesting they should be burned "at the stake."

Weiser, who also serves as a regent for the University of Michigan, made the highly controversial remarks during a political event in Michigan's Oakland County.


"Our job now is to soften up those three witches and make sure we have good candidates to run against them, that they are ready for the burning at the stake," he said, referring to Whitmer as well as Michigan's Attorney General Dana Nessel and Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson, both of whom are Democrats.

When asked about the Michigan Republican leader's remarks, Whitmer told CNN on Wednesday: "It's just really a sad moment in America where people who are leading are treated with such disrespect."

The governor pointed out that the FBI arrested a group of men last year who were actively plotting to kidnap and possibly assassinate her. Whitmer said this is a "dangerous moment."

"We've seen threats come to those of us in office," she said, pointing to the "plot to kidnap and kill me." Whitmer noted that "we're seeing people in court this week on those very charges," saying remarks like the ones made by Weiser are "throwing gas on this fire."

"It is dangerous and it's unacceptable," Whitmer said. "And I've been, for almost a year now, calling on people to bring down the heat."

Newsweek reached out to the Michigan GOP for comment, but did not immediately receive a response.

Weiser issued an apology on Saturday for his remarks. But the GOP leader faces potential censure from the University of Michigan's board of regents due to the comments.
